'Space Raiders in Space' Leaving Early Access, Gets Release Date - Screens & Trailer

Space Raiders in Space is a tower defense game with a strong graphic novel storyline and a pinch of self-centered humor.

Humanity and the sentient hivemind extraterrestrials were getting along so well until the aliens collectively decided that they were tired of friendship and felt more in the mood for murder. Join badass warrior Andy, super-scientist Heather, and friendly alien Murphy as they squish the creepy-crawly aliens and prove the superiority of individual consciousness once and for all. But as history proves, first encounters may start with a hug, but they can easily end with a knife in the back. Don’t trust everything you see; sometimes salt looks like sugar.

The gameplay is based around 5 tasks for the almost competent crew: Search, Build, Defend, Attack, and Cower. These are used to loot for weapons and supplies, build defenses, and fight your way through the Bugpocalypse – waves of bloodthirsty space bugs eager to have some human flesh for dinner.

Combine tower defense strategery with roguelike-inspired game modes and squad management across a new story mode with 40+ pages of custom comic illustrations and voice acting. Assemble defenses of walls, turrets, and obstructions to reduce these space invaders to ash. Between waves, issue commands to the squad to search, build, fight, defend, and cower away from the extraterrestrial danger.

Eradicate wave after wave to collect weapons for survival like big ole hammers, a nasty crossbow that shoots through lines of enemies, beefy swords, and many more implements of destruction, each with different tiers and rarities. With enemies approaching from all sides, Andy, Heather, Murphy, and humanity need as much help as they can get from the cosmos, like the ability to stop time itself for a quick breather or a last-ditch effort for survival.

Sometimes there is no such thing as a good choice and one has to choose what is subjectively the lesser evil.

“Comic-style art, killer space aliens, and deprecating humor come together for a truly great tower defense experience in Space Raiders in Space,” said Marcin Stanek, Business Development Manager at Destructive Creations. “Build the best strategy and beat back the hordes when we launch on December 8.”

Full of easter eggs, 2 Stupid Devs’ humor comes through with plenty of moments that break the fourth wall to provide a laugh while crushing those alien jerks.

Key Features:

  • Simplicity with Depth - The orders you can give are simple; the strategies you can achieve with them are surprisingly complex.
  • Challenging Maps - As you loot your way through the galaxy, the different locations you explore will present unique tactical challenges for you to conquer via clever use of weapons, fortifications, and orders.
  • Unique Weapons - Penetrating Crossbows, Slashing Swords, Armour-piercing Snipers, Crushing Hammers, and many more categories of weapons, each with multiple tiers and rarities.
  • Super Time Stop Powers - Pause the game mid-combat to evaluate your strategy and give orders. It will help, but sometimes there are just too many bugs.
  • Official ranking of the best players.

Currently available through Steam Early Access, Space Raiders in Space will be coming to PC on Dec. 8, 2020.
