'Everspace' (ALL) Makes Switch Debut At Gamescom - Screens & Trailer

Everspace is a roguelike 3D space shooter with a unique, non-linear story and fast-paced shooter gameplay.

In Everspace, players awaken on board a battleship in a remote corner of our galaxy. They receive a mysterious command to appear at a specific place. Searching for the origins of their own existence and the unknown commander, they must fight their way through more and more new, uncontrolled territories where they will encounter other skilled combat pilots, who range from cooperative to hostile. Death will be a constant companion and constantly recurring flashbacks of the protagonist will gradually shine a light in the darkness of the mission.

During the course of the game, players will not only have to continually prove their combat skills, but also gather fuel and raw materials in order to travel to various star systems and repair and upgrade their equipment. The roguelike character of the game offers a quick and easy entry to the game and adds constant twists and surprises to the game events. Along with gameplaying skills, this also demands improvisation by players and provides an individual, always motivational game experience. Unlike in classic roguelikes, game progress is not completely lost at the moment of death, but rather remains available in the form of persistent upgrades.


Independent developer Rockfish Games will present its roguelike 3D space shooter Everspace to the public for the first time, as well as for the first time on portable console Nintendo Switch, at this year's Gamescom in the Nindie Area at the Nintendo booth.

“Over the past four years we’ve managed to build a passionate community of sci-fi and space shooter fans, so we are delighted to recruit even more on Nintendo Switch”, said Michael Schade, CEO at ROCKFISH games. “Thanks to the fast-paced and easy-to-pick up gameplay, with comparatively short game sessions and automatic savegames, Everspace is also a perfect match for playing on the mobile Switch console without losing long-term motivation. Players can easily pause the game and pick up right where they left off later when on the go.”

The Nintendo Switch “Stellar Edition” release, which will contain the base game, the expansion, the Everspace art book and the complete soundtrack with over 60 titles, is scheduled for digital and physical retail release in December 2018.
