Everspace Needs Your Help To Launch From Kickstarter To The Ends Of The Universe

wpid-wp-1439159659732.png

Last month ROCKFISH Games revealed their upcoming title EVERSPACE, its a rogue-like 3D space shooter with non-linear storytelling. Whatever you do, don’t chalk this up to being “just another space sim”, EVERSPACE promises to be far more than that. They’ve taken everything they learned with their incredibly popular title Galaxy On Fire and decided to show themselves up… Utilizing the Unreal Engine 4 they’ve created a stunningly beautiful universe that you can’t help but want to lose yourself in. I think the only thing that could possibly rival the visuals are the core mechanics that it’s all based upon, they’ve added details that most wish they could pull together in a AAA title.

However in order to deliver the finished product that they envisioned, they’ve turned to Kickstarter to rally the community so they’ll be able to finish the game the way it needs to be done.

Just in case you’ve been lost in the woods for the last month and aren’t yet familiar with EVERSPACE, you can check out our original coverage for an overview.
