Hardspace Shipbreaker is a first-person sci-fi title that has you salvaging spacecraft in space.
But it’s essentially Minesweeper in space as the risks involved in scavenging for tech in zero gravity has the Health and Safety Team at Acme Mechanics filling their pants.
Blackbird Interactive’s game aims to recover valuable material from wrecks so that you can upgrade your gear and get out of debt to LYNX Corp.
One slight mistake with cutting a component could trigger an almightly explosion that will have you eternally floating in space like a promo to a Stanley Kubrick flick.
Hardspace Shipbreaker starts as a run-of-the-mill mechanical simulator until that first spark triggers an explosion, then you’re on the edge of your seat, holding your breath.
