How to play Undercrewed
How to play Undercrewed

You are the last 4 survivors on your spacecraft! You will be running around the ship activating parts to try and keep the ship flying to attempt to complete the mission.

In this game you must make real time decisions and prioritise your efforts to help your team, fans of FTL / Lovers in Dangerous Spacetime / Galaxy Trucker / Space Cadets / Artemis will enjoy Undercrewed!

New modules are acquired from this huge circular unlock tree. It’s your choice if you should specialise in one area or spread your points for a more flexible spaceship.

Making a spaceship that fits your play style is key. Some teams will want a ship with loads of guns, some teams will want a tactical ship that can adapt to every situation. Deciding how much of your spaceship you want to dedicate to shields, repair droids or holographic medics will change how you and your team play the game.

Playing with your friends is easy! We’ve made it so your friends can join together through Steam’s invite system or have multiple people playing at the same computer. You can even mix and match both!

We love gamepads but we know not everyone has one, if you fancy getting much closer to your friends everyone can play on the same keyboard. The whole campaign is designed to be played with your friends so any combination of keyboard, controllers and online play works.

If you don’t have enough people for a full crew our super smart bots can fill in the missing slots, this allows you to play everything single player.

Hi! Nice to meet you! We are a team of two:

David (coding, design, business) @DavesInHisPants

  • Writes game making guides
  • Professional programmer
  • Game development talks and videos 
  • London, UK

 Dex (Art) @dexdonte

  • At art college
  • Animator
  • Colorado, US

What we've done before

Over the last year Dex and Dave have been making lots of Web based games together that have been released for free on the Internet. Together they have been played by more than 200,000 people. We are often told we should make a full length game so this is our first venture into that.

Our games include:

The game would be perfect for consoles, but we want to get it perfect on PC first so this is a long term dream.

The game is in such a good place and is so entertaining to play we know we are going to finish it. However this boost of money will greatly improve the overall quality of the game, allowing us to hire people to make music, give us a better budget for buying sound effects and other assets.

Undercrewed Costs
Undercrewed Costs

Dex and I have invested a lot of time working on the game creating what you can see, so we are heavily invested in the project ourselves. An investment would allow us to make Undercrewed a full time project and dedicate our focus on creating the best work we can.

Steam Keys:

A digital copy of the game when the Early Access launches on Steam, allowing Kickstarter backers to play the game before anyone else.

We will send your copies of the game as Steam keys, these will be E-mailed to you. Most of the pledge levels come with multiple cd keys that you can give to your friends. These will be dispatched at the same time via E-mail.

Name in the Game:  

When you fly near a planet or galaxy at the moment a cool little popup comes up saying “planet discovered by NAME”. We want to add the names of our Kickstarter backers so their names will be immortalised in the game.

If you don’t want your name in the game that is fine as well, you can buy that tier and not have your name in the game.

Design a Ship:

You will work with our artist to design a ship picking the layout and colours and even giving it stats. If you want we will even name it after you. The ship you design will be included in the final game for everyone to play!

Steam Achievement

To thank the people that give the most we will name an achievement after them!

We do have to be careful what names we get given to make sure they are family friendly and that we have the character set to display it.

Risks and challenges

Dex and I have completed many games together that we have released for free and that have been played by 200,000+ people. So we are very experienced with finishing games and dedicated to completing projects together.

At the moment the core engine is very solid and all the netcode is in and working. So we know the game will get finished, however with the help of Kickstarter we can make a more expansive world and a better experience for everyone.

We’ve done a lot in 4 months and the game is currently very playable and stable.

We have already done an internal closed alpha which went very successfully across all platforms, and will be doing many more to help balance the game and make sure it's as fun as it can be.
