Shallow Space: Insurgency is a story driven real-time strategy space combat adventure that focuses on organised combat from small fleets to massive armada’s as players fight for the survival of the human race.

In Shallow Space: Insurgency, intra-fighting grips the twelve colonies of the galaxy, as the future of the human race hangs in the balance. As the narrative unfolds players slowly learn how the various factions compete for resources, discover the political machinations of the major corporations and learn who their true allies are. Take command of a spacecraft fleet, with the aim of dominating sectors of space, through both random encounters and gripping storyline missions. Whether providing policing and escort duties, harvesting resources or responding to random encounters, the dynamic gameplay provides players with the freedom to direct their own authentic space adventure on multiple fronts.

Special Circumstance Games has launched an indiegogo crowdfunding campaign for Shallow Space: Insurgency, looking for $85,000 to help make its 3D space adventure real-time strategy game a reality.

Supporters of the project can get involved by pledging as little as $1. Multiple perks are available for backers, including a 3D printed ship model, or even the opportunity to help with the design of an in-game ship model. The Indiegogo campaign will allow Special Circumstance Games to take their impressive tech demo to a much more fully-featured game. For a taste of what Shallow Space: Insurgency is about, the demo is available to download now.

Featuring full fleet customization, players take command of a massive range of spacecraft, each with their own unique characteristics and customize them for a variety of tasks. Corvettes, Frigates, Cruisers and Battlecruisers supplement Capital ships and can be equipped with ship modules and turret placements and a number of kinetic, energy, missile and torpedo weapons to assist in achieving victory. Combat mechanics are based upon the grouping together of ships into ‘Wings’ and ‘Flotilla’’, which assist in managing operations and allow players to undertake fast attack, shield damage, hull damage and repair, among many others, as well as a complex player AI to reduce the complexity of large engagements. Each player’s battle group will comprise of several Flotillas, pre-equipped to their particular play style.

Shallow Space: Insurgency is on track for an Early Access launch on Steam in Fall 2015.
