Besides is strategy component DOTLC is a fast paced arcade with lots of content to unlock, like retro modes, challenges and awards.
This is what is already in the game, but, of course, the more support and users base the game gets the more stuff we'll add.
  • 4 pilots
  • 2 ship classes
  • 12 worlds to explore
  • 3 retro modes
  • 30 challenges
  • 15 awards
  • Cooperative gameplay
  • Survival mode
  • HD graphics
So, if we get to Steam, we'll add a bigger campaign, online Vs and Co-op and some extra retro modes.


The Starians came from nowhere, decimating the colonies as they passed.

Only one colony survived, carrying four prototype ships they are travelling to save what it's left of the other colonies, and taking as many Starians as they can on their way.
