Hot New Freight

by on 28th Feb 2014

You get the goods. Transport the haul, bring it to where the customer desires and collect your earnings. Sounds simple, doesn't it? The thing is, space is a dangerous place, even in and of itself - never mind the deadly, greedy scum that inhabits it - in PassTech Games' upcoming Space Run.

The game:

(...) mixes strategy and space ship construction in real time, borrowing certain mechanics from the "tower defense" system with numerous twists and hyper dynamic gameplay. Space Run is a nod to '80s science fiction and pays homage to many of its tropes and references.

The year is 2525. You are captain Buck Mann, the most fearless, daredevil and the most broke of all the pilots in the galaxy! Your new job: you are a Space Runner, one of the space haulage contractors whose job is to transport valuable cargo from one end of the galaxy to the other... and one thing's for sure: it's going to be a bumpy ride.(...)

Fulfil your contracts with gusto and your reputation will soar, opening the doors to new clients and more demanding and hazardous assignments... but which will also be more lucrative! The rewards earned from these missions will enable you to unlock new modules for your ship or upgrade those you already own: luxuries you can't afford to be without if you want to survive the mortal perils lurking in space. Turrets lasers, missile launchers, shield generators, thrusters, power plants and other modules will allow you to adapt to new combat situations in mid-flight that arise on your travels. Build, recycle, repair and reposition the modules and improvise as best you can to deal with the multiple threats you will face.

No word has been offered regarding when you'll be able to make your first run, but we'll be sure to hail your ship when the time comes.
