Deep Space Settlement[] is a real-time strategy game focused on empire building and grand-scale space battles. It is currently in development.

You are part of a multi-generational mission to colonize distant regions of space. Your journey brings you to a star cluster rich in resources and lightly populated. Or so it seems. Your goal is clear: setup a space settlement and thrive. Whether you choose to make allies or conquer through supremacy is up to you.

  • Build your interstellar empire
  • Gather and convert resources to power your empire's economy
  • Trade resources between star-systems, players and NPCs
  • Random events, RPG style
  • Customizable ships and stations
  • Build giant capital ships supported by an armada of smaller, more maneuverable ships
  • Create fleets
  • Unlock new technologies
  • Unlock new ship abilities through an XP system
  • Defend from invaders and conquer new star systems
  • Single- and Multiplayer
  • Story and sandbox mode
  • High modding capabilities, access, change or replace game content through XML and game logic through the API

Who is behind this?
Deep Space Settlement has been in development by a tiny indie team for 3 years.
After having worked for 6 years in AAA game development, Stéphanie Rancourt has founded Escape Velocity Studios, seeking more independence and more creative freedom.

Doing all game design and programming she has help from Mathias Koehler, an Industrial Designer focusing on Entertainment Design Spaceships and everything else art related.

Our aim is to bring to you the best 4X RTS experience we possibly can, while staying independent and connecting directly with players. We love space and making games, so this is about creating our and perhaps your dream game.
DSS is built from the ground up on a custom engine populated with all original content, which allows us to provide very deep modding support from the get-go.

Support us!
If you like what you see, the best way to help us is by pre-ordering DSS[] and by sharing anything about the game with your friends. Thank you!

When the alpha comes out (it's already past 9 month since preorder)? All your twitter posts make me horribly drool and dream about DSS during sleep. Please don't torture me this horribly! What will you do, if I will die from deficit of DSS in my blood? :D
