We are getting great feedback now, this game is made for VR, and ported to none VR, which is normally the other way around. Bugs fixed now (see our forums)

The second major part is that this a game which is different from the norm, and has caused much confusion. But as you will see, playing for a few hours still doesn't even scratch the surface.

For people who don't want perma-death, and and more usual sort of game, be sure to check out cdf ghostship coming this Halloween :) This is a bit more of the norm and play`s the storyline of what happened on the ship. Save game management, FPS, Free roaming/open world, multiple game modes! And multiplayer with your support!

Then no one has any good reasons to give your game any negative criticisms, as I found all over the web. So, for those of you who do not support Shaun's hard work or not respecting it, take a hike.

I am a solo dev, this game has been my life for the last 2 years, and will be for many years to come. there are not many games that offer you more free content aside from paid DLC,s.

We are about to announce tomorrow that our first DLC "Hassle Free" Free roaming/open world with no enemies or objectives) will be FREE! As well as FREE Halloween special - I am cooking up for you guys :)

Unlike most, this game is a zero-budget game! Its been published and has been made with passion and determination. Those two traits will not stop now the game has been released. If the game does well and i can get a team together, then a lot of aspects of this game will improved I will be able to bring a much better and polished game when i cant get some help and funds! I thanks everyone who has helped support me and Ghostship, and now the first major hurdle is over, I still have many more to cross.

yeah, it resumes your game, if you died, it resumes your death ending or survived ending (if you wants to screen shoot it :) )
seansdibbun 8 hours ago 
One thing I like to point out. As I look at the game when Youtube, when a player dies, the "Resume Game" option still appears to be on the main menu.

Don't mean to sound blunt or anything, but are you saying that this game is an arcade?
shaun  [author] Jul 28 @ 7:36pm 
If you die, you start a new game. The game has many random elements, stories, eneimes etc so death is not the end, just a new beggining. Each game is literally a different life.
seansdibbun Jul 28 @ 6:25pm 
So there is a save system. And to pretend that I didn't understand other descriptive details regarding the game, what happens if you die?
shaun  [author] Jul 28 @ 5:32pm 
Hi, the game autosaves every time you go to a new deck. Quitting the game in play will inform you that you will resume you`re game at the start of the deck. You can change deck whenever you like and quit out knowing you will start there next time you resume your game.

I think a few people have got the save system mixed up as it autosaves, and you can only play/save one game at a time.
seansdibbun Jul 28 @ 5:05pm 
So, there are no savegames; and if you die, it reverts to a different character in a different story. I'll only get the game if I know all about it, in case I turn out not liking it. What about checkpoints? There's a "Resume Game" option in the main menu of the game. Does the game save automatically instead of playing it for so many hours in one session?

New update (v1.1) has a huge improvement to AI, enjoy :)
TSU-Dude.Man.Guy Jul 25 @ 12:27am 
Yo Shaun, really diggin' the game, gonna sink a few more hours to see if I can actualy get out alive.

Only problem I have in all is AI and the animations of some of ther bigger monsters are just flat out bizarre, and knock me out of the atmosphere and immersion.

Regardless I can put them down with the juicy weapons you deliver and every other aspect of the game is pretty great, can't wait for more and CDF Ghostship!
shaun  [author] Jul 24 @ 10:54am 
Most bugs are fixed now, the manual has been released and the FAQ is about to go up on the forums. As you will see from the latest build just uploading, this is not an early access game. This is a finished game that gives you tens and even hundreds of hours of gameplay. There was a few bugs with the none VR port but these have been cleared up now. We hope to have the VRversion up in around 2 - 3 weeks time.

So look out for new reviews and gamepplay :)

There will also be further updates which will include any more fixes needed and free new content. So be sure to check it. the 3 DLC`s also planned will announced tomorrow.

Thanks for being patient in the first week of launch :)
Luna'd Jul 24 @ 6:25am 
By the way, is any more work going to be put into the game? Although from what I've seen, what is already there is pretty good, but there are some pretty rusty parts in the game. Shouldn't the game be categorised as an early access title?
shaun  [author] Jul 23 @ 2:33pm 
Multiplayer is for CDF ghostship, be sure to check it out! launching this Halloween. Ghostship aftermath steam store is here - http://store.steampowered.com/app/280890
Mitko_1878 Jul 23 @ 12:46pm

Luna'd Jul 23 @ 2:13am 
Wait, is there going to be any form of multiplayer gameplay? Just interested, and I'm also new to this game.
JonnyƦedHed Jul 18 @ 12:04pm 
I'll be installing and trying it out soon. Thanks for your hard work Shaun.
shaun  [author] Jul 15 @ 7:21am 
Thanks Everyone! Its Official! Ghostship Aftermath will be released this Friday (18th July) On steam. Visit our store page - http://store.steampowered.com/app/280890
JonnyƦedHed Jul 12 @ 12:49pm 
All good things come to those who wait. Thanks S.
shaun  [author] Jul 12 @ 12:01pm 
Its looking like the store should go live (by next friday) Its all down to steam at the moment. For pre-orders, we are getting some keys out in the next day or 2 for beta testing, which is basically the full game, minus any bugs we come accross in the next few weeks. We could not put it on the members area so members will be able to play beta 3 / final none VR here on steam.
JonnyƦedHed Jul 12 @ 11:08am 
Whats happening then. Is there another week to wait.
hicks Jul 11 @ 2:54pm 
np shaun just was wondering whether or not i had to wait for steam, guess I am waiting :D. Appreciate your work thus far, keep it up!
shaun  [author] Jul 11 @ 2:25pm 
This is going to be uploaded through steam. members who pre-ordered will get early access to the VR version before it goes live :)
hicks Jul 11 @ 11:56am 
Are you goiong to be uploading this to your sits members area or just steam? Cant wait for this! Still excited for my dk2 and the vr version :P
shaun  [author] Jul 11 @ 1:46am 
I finally got it uploaded here on steam thanks to bongobails. WooHoo

We are now just waiting on steam to review and then we can unleash Ghostship Aftermath. Look out for the store page when it goes live :)

The game is huge, random and lots of fun. We cant wait to unleash the VR version at the end of July.

Thanks to all you guys and girls who helped get Ghostship Aftermath & CDF Ghostship through greenlight! I am sure you sci-fi fans will have your sci-fi needs answered :)
JonnyƦedHed Jul 11 @ 1:11am 
How are things shaping up today Shaun.
shaun  [author] Jul 10 @ 4:33pm 
The none Vr version is all ready to go and awesome, cant wait to get the dk2 version out :) We are having problems uploading game on steam through steamworks. We hope to have it up and available as soon as we can :) The VR (dk2) version should hopefully go live at the end of the month providing oculus release the new sdk libraries for udk :)
ManOrAstroman? Jul 10 @ 4:20pm 
Hi Shaun..i can´t wait for the vr version of Ghostship Aftermath. All the previous demos are great fun to play. Many thanks for the sweat and sometimes tears ;-) you put in this game to develope a fantasic game for us space game lovers. Sorry for my english and best wishes for the future!
WinningHarp177 Jul 7 @ 8:10am 
Had my eye on this for a while and it's looking great, well done. One thing I would say is the loading screen between areas kind of jarred me out of the atmosphere. Think it would maintain the mood much more effectivley if you just had some kind of decon effect or a door unlock cycle or something, to mask the loading.
]CIA[ Onearmy Jul 4 @ 9:05am 
I stayed up the entire night waiting for the release lol. There seems to be a delay, most likely on STEAMS end. I can't wait! Haha

that voice in his helmet sounds kinda... well... look and see xD

Will you guys distribute keys to groupees before release? Or do we will have to wait till after the game is released to get them?
JonnyƦedHed Jul 1 @ 6:43am 
Ok Thanks
shaun  [author] Jul 1 @ 6:31am 
The none VR version is due for release this Friday (4th July) Here on steam at that time hopefully. You guys will get a choice of steam, desura and a few of distributor keys. You will get an e,mail tomorrow about your preferred choice (pre-orders) . We will have the full VR release ready and compatible with OR dk2, around the end of the month.
JonnyƦedHed Jul 1 @ 5:02am 
Ok yes I have that now. So is the game going on steam and we get steam keys, what's the status of this. Otherwise I assume we get another email when the game releases with a download URL.
shaun  [author] Jul 1 @ 2:18am 
Hi JohhnyRedHead, you should have received an e-mail :)
JonnyƦedHed Jun 30 @ 7:34pm 
I've pre-ordered Shaun, but have info after regarding what to do next and only my paypal receipt email. What next?
shaun  [author] Jun 20 @ 4:29pm 
It will be epic in DK2, Its made for HD and you have not seen nothing yet! Tonnes of stuff is store for you guys! We saved a lot of the scary and exciting stuff for the final release. The full ship is huge, In VR you can spend a week just looking round. All pre-orders will get the Hassle Free DLC free, when we started it was just an exploration game, but now she has gone much further than that :) the hassle Free DLC lets you just explore the ship :)
JVLK Jun 20 @ 2:40pm 
Was going to ask if you would update for dk2, but just read the information on the new website.
Good decision to postpone the vr release to the end of july to have full dk2 support.

Played the pre-order beta a couple of times with the dk1, and it scared the crap out of me a couple of times...you really nailed that sense of presence of walking in that big space ship and somehow also maintain that claustrophobic feeling while wearing that space suit, can't wait for the dk2 to get a even better experience.
shaun  [author] Jun 18 @ 7:05pm 
Thanks guys :) Please spread the word! Nobody knows about Ghostship yet! We now need you guys in our final couple of weeks to help us spread the word! A newcomer in Sci-fi survival horror arrives on the 4th July :) And all you sci-fi fans are going to love it! Not all indie games are made equal :)

shaun  [author] Jun 3 @ 4:35pm 
Looking forward to the reviews?

if you like sci-fi, you will love it!
if you like surprises, this is the game for you.
if you have VR, then this is for you!


If you have a weak heart, epilepsy or expect to complete a game in an hour or 2 then this is not the game for you!

And i am expecting some 1 or 2 out of 10`s. This last couple of days has now prepared me for that. :)
scoobs mcdoo Jun 3 @ 3:42pm 
look you guys, i don't see why this has been blown up out of proportion like this, the facts are that you are all arguing over a game in "Development" it aint even finished IN ANY FORMAT!!! if this shit continues and steam pull the plug NOBODY gets a look at what promises to be a masterpiece of sci fi! shit i wouldn't be surprised if they made a damn movie! CHILL lets see what the score is when the damn thing is FINISHED???????? ☮
krazedlion Jun 3 @ 3:41pm 
Good luck! I hope things work out well for all involved and that the game plays as awesome as it looks!
shaun  [author] Jun 3 @ 12:52pm 
I know that now, next time we are waiting for confirmation, i will keep qiuet until we get that info :)
BionicGolem Jun 3 @ 12:42pm 
Well you shoot yourself in the foot with no steam keys for Groupees bundle at the start. And then you only make it worse by saying many inappropriate things in this situation, like bundle buyers get diffrent version or that the game wont be relased.
Small advice next time do a little research and think before u say something,remember internet don't forget.
