Deep Sky Derelicts

Post by Kreador Freeaxe »

Recently on a GOG sale I picked up this game, Deep Sky Derelicts. Kind of interesting mix of exploration and deck builder in an SF deep space setting. I'm early in the mid-game right now and it's gotten very challenging. Anybody else try it?

My wife is a little annoyed at how much I've been playing it, and I'm only on a first trial run to get the hang of the mechanics. I need to go back and try some of the other classes and probably make a custom team.

That looks really interesting. I love the comic book style artwork and vibe, and I've been on the lookout for a good turn-based RPG with a card aesthetic. Too bad it's only on PC. I'd love to have this on my Switch, or even on my Mac. :(

Nice, it's like Darkest Dungeons, but in space (and w/cards, lol).

Void Bastards has a similar aesthetic, if completely different gameplay. It's more dark-humour-y, and it's a 1st person shooter-roguelike... but similar art and theme.

As Bernie showed above, it does run on Mac. I know, because I'm running it on a Mac.

Interesting. When I searched Google for the game, it took me to the company's web site, and it only mentions PC:

They may just mean that it's not on console platforms. Mac and Windows are both PCs to many people.

Followed the link to the developer's site and it also shows a price of $4.99 on Steam right now. Not sure if that's just not updated, or if that's correct.
