After the successful Kickstarter campaign and release of EVERSPACE we're now back with the sequel - join the community on discord.gg/rockfishgames!

EVERSPACE 2 is a fast-paced single-player space shooter with deep exploration, tons of loot, classic RPG elements for PC (Windows, Mac, Linux) and console (PS4 and XB1). Set in a persistent open world, it is driven by a captivating sci-fi story, picking up shortly after the events of the predecessor. An approximately 20-hour-long campaign and various side missions will lead you into the endgame. Prepare yourself to beat the most vicious encounters, and master difficult challenges which will reward you with that juicy epic loot!  

 

Imagine a Hack & Slash Action-RPG with all the bells and whistles: classes, random loot, skills, talents, and more... but in space. Your ship is the hero in this adventure. Expand your private ship collection from a virtually endless supply of vessels composed of three main classes with several sub-classes and optimize your build to perfection. Cleverly combine modules, weapons, devices, and perks to fit your individual playstyle and the current objective.

If you liked the fast-paced space combat of EVERSPACE, we have great news for you: aiming, precision, and maneuverability will still be key to your success, so EVERSPACE 2 will keep the much-praised Freelancer-inspired keyboard + mouse controls of its predecessor. Because tastes and preferences vary from pilot to pilot, we will refine the controls even further and add more input settings for tweaking them to your liking.  

This time we added customizable input settings for gamepads, even more button layouts to choose from, and HOTAS support from the get-go. We will also be shipping the game with presets for the most common joystick setups on Day 1 to make die-hard fans of space sims happy, too (hey there, space truckers!). And yes, you will be able to turn off inertial dampeners if floating around space Newtonian-style is your thing.

To make the action even more interesting, we have redesigned the enemy AI from scratch and given it a much larger set of behaviors and variables. You will fight against opponents who will now be able to act and react to you, other NPCs, and the environment in a much more sophisticated way, delivering a whole new level of challenge for even the most veteran space pilots out there.

Based on your great feedback about combat inside of derelict space stations and near the surface of celestial bodies, we are planning to add more locations with even greater gameplay variety to EVERSPACE 2:

Fly inside massive capital ships and overcome complex security systems before taking the beast down by placing a ticking bomb right next to its fusion power core. Just be sure to get the hell out of there in time. 

 

Descend to planet surfaces where interstellar mining corporation Grady & Brunt (G&B) Prospects operates large mining facilities both above and below ground, and where massive freighters full of loot constantly come and go. 

Grady & Brunt mining facilities are big business and therefore well-protected - raid at your on risk! Grady & Brunt mining facilities are big business and therefore well-protected - raid at your on risk!

You asked for it, you got it: EVERSPACE 2 will take place in a persistent, open game world, combining the best of level-based and open-world design concepts. Look forward to exploring over a hundred locations filled with little secrets, challenges and puzzles, tons of loot, all sorts of weird alien creatures, and a wide variety of NPCs.

Fixed locations will be created using a large pool of handcrafted props, uniquely designed iconic space landmarks, and some clever procedural generation. Repeat visits will always be worth your while. While some changes to the environment will be permanent, some structures may have been rebuilt since your last visit and you can never be sure who you will encounter or what loot and resources you might find.

Rival outlaw clans are scattered all over the DMZ, always on the hunt for booty. Rival outlaw clans are scattered all over the Demilitarized Zone (the DMZ, a former war zone in the interstellar conflict between the Okkar and the human race), always on the hunt for booty.

The randomly created procedural locations from EVERSPACE will also make a return in the form of temporary events and encounters.

Mining will receive a minor overhaul: it will still be easy to extract iron ore from an asteroid just by shooting at it, but to get your hands on rare resources you will have to be at the right place with the right equipment. Once obtained, use your resources to build or upgrade stuff or sell it to whichever station offers the best price. You can also roam the world looking for the best deals on certain commodities, becoming the part-time trader you always wanted to be.

To get around quickly in any star system, you will be able to travel in Supralight Mode and cover large distances with ease. Of course, if something interesting pops up along your way, you can always stop by. However, Supralight travel generates an enormous energy signature which can be traced by anyone from afar. Be sure to watch out for any unpleasant surprises while zooming through space.

Nice to see this one posted here.  In fact, I got directed to the Reaper Bones V KS from the comments there (which is how I ended up here).  It's in the final 28 hours with around $26k US to go.

      Story
      In the depths of Agaldurs Keep, where the deep roots of the ancient Dwarven king's mines break into the natural homeland of the Gnomes, the magicks of the Darkewood begin to take hold. In the years after the Dwarves had left these lands the Gnomes took up residence in the lower sections of the Keep finding it infinitely more comfortable than their underground holes. Moving here exposed the Gnomes to new creatures, new tools and of course the magick that weaves through the Darkewood. Over time Gnomish society changed and began revolving around frogs and fairies instead of just dirt.
          More Gnomes? is this just an excuse for Bad puns?
      No of course not,  but when opportunity knocks it would be rude not to open the door eh?  We originally launched the 'Gnome More MR. Nice Guys' miniatures in 2018 and had always hoped to explore deeper into the history of these strange creatures. Where did they come from, What are they wearing and Why do they get so angry?  With your help in funding this project not only will we be able to answer some of these burning questions but we will also be able to bring a whole heap of brand new Northumbrian Tin Minis into production for general release next year. 
      We spent a fair amount of time considering how these gnomes fit into the world along with the rest of the Nightfolk and the Denizens of the Wood and so to help you bring a little bit more of that world to life they also come equipped with a small free digital adventure. Rumor has it that our author Ken became so engaged with the characters and lore that he built a whole campaign around it, which he may or may not have committed to paper - we shall have to see!
      We have 8 Gnomes and 5 Toads as well as an epic Toad mounted Deathstealer, Several stretch goals which include Additional free Minis!
        What do you get out of this? Well, you can get all of those fantastic miniatures we just mentioned and some addons with a fantastic discount on the usual retail price and perhaps bag yourself some free stretch goals on top!  You also get to lend us a hand in shaping these characters and the lore that surrounds them.

      I assume that everyone is already aware that Midlam is running a new KS, but...

      Story
      Throughout the land, small shadowy figures are reported, often just glimpsed out of the corner of the eye.  They go hither, they go thither! They are abroad on unnamed errands and secret quests.  It can only be...
      The Classic Cloaked Halfling Adventuring Party!
      A Set of 10 Classic Cloaked Halfling Adventurers for all of your Fantasy Adventures.
      Welcome to our latest Kickstarter Project, which we are running as a quick campaign, of just over a week.   Our plans for the year, like so many other peoples, have been knocked sideways and we are behind where we planned to be.   To that end, we intend to run this campaign for just over a week, and get the miniatures sent out to backers before the end of the year.
      The classic cloaked halflings project came about because the few halflings we did have with cloaks, always proved popular, and it remains a classic look.  So here we have male and female cloaked halfling with a variety of adventuring gear.
       
       
      Now hurry up, you only have 7 days on this one because they hope to get the minis out the door in time for Christmas.
