Skyjacker will be a single purchase download, and will offer intense space combat missions in an open world in which players control customizable starships as they hijack, destroy and loot enemy vessels.
Players take control of one of the most ruthless pirates in the galaxy, Ael, as they fight against hostile alien races. In multiplayer, including co-op, players can select from one of several alien pirates and several gameplay modes. With Skyjacker’s physics and extensive spaceship customization abilities, space-sim enthusiasts have the freedom to go beyond the stars like never before.
“We started development of Skyjackerbecause we noticed there was a lack of quality space combat games for fans of the genre, and as space exploration enthusiasts we wanted to change this,” said Eugene Zhukov, CEO of Digitilus. “Since introducing Skyjackerto the community, we’ve received immense support from players and although we are committed to funding and completing the project ourselves, a successful Kickstarter will enable us to solidify the game and speed up the launch, providing galactic aficionados with all the features they want, much sooner than planned.”
Digitilus is looking to raise $150,000 USD in backing through Kickstarter which will be used to fund co-op multiplayer and Mission Constructor, a system that lets players create their own missions for anyone to play.
Skyjackeris currently in alpha, with pre-orders available here.
