EVERSPACE 2 Launches Kickstarter Campaign

Everspace 2

Open-world space shooter EVERSPACEhas launched a crowdfunding campaign, as it aims to move far beyond the scope of it’s roguelike predecessor.

ROCKFISH Games has launched a crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter for EVERSPACE 2, the sequel to its original indie hit.

While EVERSPACE was a roguelike, the sequel will be an open-world space shooter, aiming to far surpass the original in size, scope and quality.

EVERSPACE 2 will feature include Diablo-like RPG elements, side missions, a focused narrative and more. The team at ROCKFISH is working with Streamline Studios and Volta as external development partners, and also Joshua Rubin, who has been involved with productions such as Destiny, Assassin’s Creed II, and The Walking Dead.

At time of writing, the Kickstarter campaign has raised roughly £130,000 of its £400,911 (€450,000) goal. Some backers will be able to get access to an exclusive playable demo later this year, but the rest of us will have to wait until September 2020 for the early access version of the game, with a full release scheduled for PC and consoles the following year.

"Cynical", "sarcastic" and "irritable" are just some of the words that have been used to describe Diggy B, the other words usually being four letters long and incredibly rude. He can normally be found with a controller in his hands and strives to provide acerbic rants on all things gaming, from Gears of War to Candy Crush.
