Space Shock is an RPG game set in Space. Space Shock is the younger brother of all famous dungeon crawlers the RPG fans could play in the past and it still can be played via emulators on our beloved PCs. Space Shock will not be an ordinary Dungeon crawler, but rather Sci-fi based, which the players have not seen the likes of for years. The dungeons, forests, old cities will be replaced by huge ships, space stations and bases built on the planet surfaces and their moons. The player will take a party of heroes and needs to lead them through the real ‘Survival of the Fittest’ environment. It will be hard to crawl past all robots, droids, defense systems, aliens, mutants and get out of the ghost ship which you have boarded as a group of Space pirates. As the younger brother to all dungeon crawlers, Space Shock does not suffer from all the growing pains of its older brothers and will become a modern and revolutionary dungeon crawling game, offering everything you loved before and much more you can find in many of new RPG games.

  • Grid-based movement or free-walk
  • Challenging turn-based combat
  • Rich sci-fi atmosphere
  • Exciting gameplay
  • Intriguing story
  • Variable and scary enemies with many special abilities
  • Beautiful and variable environments
  • Five different classes and three specializations for each class
  • Friendly and ergonomic control system based on shortcuts
  • Replayability
  • Unreal Development Kit

You will lead your party of three Space renegades through many dangerous locations on the ghost ship and challenging fights with brutal and scary enemies. Weapons and equip of your party won't be very exciting at the start, but you will find a lot of unique weapons and pieces of equip in the crates and loot from dead bodies of the enemies and bosses.

Space Shock will offer you two gameplay views:

1. Exploration in 1st person player of vision; where you will be excited by great looking and variable environments among the location of the huge Spaceship. A lot of challenging and funny puzzles and traps awaits on your party inside.

2. The unique combat system view. As we were listening to the community, the combat system has been switched from the ordinary real-time combat system seen too often in the ordinary dungeon crawling games to the modern and tactical turn-based combat. No more ‘hit-n-run’ boring moves around the enemy, you will fight hard, you will face the guns and cannons of dangerous robots, you will deal with the claws of the vicious aliens and mutants and you will stand against the elite troops of your kind.

While other ordinary dungeon crawlers do offer you three maybe four classes to play, in Space Shock you will be able to choose from five unique classes (three in base game) and their specific talents and abilities. Do you prefer killing the enemies with the weapons? Choose any of physical dealing class like Soldier or Mercenary. Would you like to decimate the hordes with the “magic”? Take Sentinel or Adept and you will bring the pain to them with your PSI Powers. We also offer you a hybrid class; the Engineer, master of constructs, traps and dirty tricks to make the enemies unable to move or act.

We are small indie studio but full of the veterans in game development industry. Everyone has experience in game development for over seven years. The time to make an exciting and excellent game project for you has come. We started working on the prototype with two people. From the day when we released very first video of the prototype a lot of people working in several game studios have been impressed by our work and they have started to contribute in this project. For more than seven months we have worked hard, after work hours, over weekends and any spare time we had to create this working prototype. We now have all main features for the base game included in the prototype.

Being employed at big company does not allow us to develop the whole game to the level of quality we want to give the players. For small and independent studio Kickstarter is the right option to turn our dreams into something real and make an awesome and exciting game for you! Many of us have been working on several great looking project thus far, some of them were terminated, some of them have been released but not to the quality we wanted to deliver to the players on account ‘of men in suits’. We are game players, just as you all. We do not want to waste our earned money to play empty games in terrible settings. We do not want to waste our time playing boring games with less than five hours of gameplay! The great thing about Kickstarter is that we can go directly to the people who love to play RPGs, especially Dungeon crawlers, as much as we love to play them and of course make them. We don't like to make compromises on account of the publishers wishes. We make the decisions, we will finish the game, we will release the exciting RPG game on the market but we won't answer to anyone but you, the players and fans, contributors. We will be the great tool in your hands led by your ideas, dreams and unbreakable will.

You can be even closer to us with Kickstarter. We will get you an inside look what goes on weekly, monthly with the game designers, coders, level designers and artists of Space Shock. We will give you the behind the scenes videos and look at the game's development, and we have planned the stuff like blogs, dev chats, and much more.

We have worked hard on our working prototype after work hours and over the weekends for seven months. We now have all main features for the base game included in the prototype.

All funds will be used to pay for production, which are; artists, gameplay scripters, gameplay designers and audio designers. There is no way to make Space Shock in either prototype or a higher level of quality without the participation of talented people and clear focus on production. Successful funding will allow these people to work on Space Shock full time.

All members of the core team will need to have their workstation and related software of the trade to be able to work daily from the beginning to finish.

Main goal is to make the base game, which will be a space crawling RPG game. This includes numerous improvements giving this a revolutionary new and exciting aspect in this genre. There are more goals and all extra money will make Space Shock more complex with more content such as enemies, locations etc. Top goals will turn the base game into something bigger to likes of the legendary forerunners in the RPG genre.

While Space Shock has its origins in old and ordinary Dungeon Crawlers, the game is planned as something extraordinary among the games of RPG genre. All game aspects in Space Shock will be rich, gameplay, entertainment, combat, count and variability of the enemies, character customization, visuals, audio, so the project needs to have this amount of money for the base game. If Space Shock succeeds on funding, the project will grow rapidly with content, gameplay and much more.

Do not worry what you get with Base game. It will still be an extraordinary RPG game with a lot of exciting game aspect inside. Soldiers, Adepts or Mercenaries will fight with twenty unique and scary enemies of all kinds (robots, sentry turrets, aliens, mutants, humanoids...) inside the huge ghost Space ship with ten unique weapons of all kind (pistols, shotguns, assault rifles...) in their hands and protected by ten unique armor sets of each kind (helm, chest armor, gloves, pants and boots).
