“It’s pretty and affectingly moody, and in its movement-heavy, explosion-littered fights involving sometimes dozens of ships it’s probably leaning more towards Gratuitous Space Battles than FTL’s static hull bombardment. “

  • I thought I would try an Early Access game, but I was worried as to what I would be getting myself into. It seems that all I did get myself into is a new found addiction. I thoroughly look forward to future updates, & the creators at Blazing Griffin are doing a superb job at both creating a game & listening to what the community wants.

  • I think this is awesome progress for the game and it makes me feel that it will end up as an awesome game if they keep up this pace.

  • Very much FTL meets a 2D version of homeworld. Nice premise and has a lot of potential I think.

  • FTL meets SPAZ (but with RTS combat). Great graphics (for a roguelike). Good overall concept.

 Dynamically generated galaxy

Traverse a dynamically generated galaxy that is populated with randomised story events and missions.  Rogulike mission design means that no two playthroughs are the same.  RTS style combat that’s fast paced and challenging with different mission objectives such as defend, capture, escort or survive an ambush.

 Adapt to survive

Persistent upgrades & damage to your ships and perma-death ensure tactics must evolve and decisions are meaningful from level to level.  If your ship is disabled in a mission it will be available in the next mission but will suffer a critical penalty (negative effect) which must be repaired.  If a ship gains too many criticals, there’s a chance it will be destroyed.  If you lose all ships in a mission, then it’s game over

 Challenging RTS style combat

Control your fleet of ships.  Keep them out of danger, activate their abilities and destroy your opponents.  But if things are getting too frantic, then pause the action with Tactical Mode and take your time to give out your next orders.  Trigger your damage boosting abilities, move your ships out of the line of fire, launch targeted storms, swarms of drones or even nuclear strikes to damage your opponents.

  • Distant Star: Revenant Fleet is an interesting mix of FTL-like overworld and roguelike style of random encounter with RTS combat mechanics.
