In a grim dystopian future, where mankind has scattered across the galaxy and the human society has split into two distinct classes, you are a poor stateless outcast forced to live off scraps from derelict alien stations and ships in the outer space, yet you dream of becoming a privileged citizen and living on the surface of a habitable planet, enjoying non-synthetic air, water and food. A fabled alien derelict ship somewhere within the Deep Sky sector of space is your voucher for a citizenship and a promise of cozy life on a hospitable planet.

Hire and control a squad of up to three mercenary characters and set on to explore derelict ships within your reach from the scavenger's base. Searching the derelicts for loot and clues, you come across many friendly inhabitants and traders, but more often – various enemies. Challenge and defeat them in tactical turn-based fights, where randomly-drawn cards form your changing arsenal of combat actions, gain experience for yourself and your crew, loot dead bodies, resupply and upgrade once back at your base. The scavenger's home ship gives you the opportunity to heal and level-up your mercenaries, recruit new ones, equip them, upgrade their gear or recharge energy for life support during missions.

Key Features:

  • Fresh take on turn-based combat with cards
  • Refined sci-fi comic book look & feel
  • Endless customization options for characters and scavenging teams
  • High replay value thanks to procedural generation of content
  • Story of the human society divided within a dystopian universe
  • Two game modes: story and arena

Deep Sky Derelicts features turn-based combat with a card system that makes every encounter strategically unique. The game’s retro sci-fi setting is enriched with roguelike elements, while the comic book-inspired art style creates a gritty world with a hand-drawn and inked feel. The launch build includes many new features including the legendary final “Mothership” derelict that completes Campaign mode, additional story features, overall polishing, Steam achievements, and more.

“Deep Sky Derelicts takes roguelike combat to a new level with the introduction of collectible card game elements and random draws that make every battle a unique experience,” said Nikolay Baryshnikov, VP of 1C Entertainment. “It’s a great addition to our 1C Entertainment portfolio, as Snowhound Games has created a fascinating retro-futuristic world that offers deep strategy and challenging surprises to keep players on their toes.”

Deep Sky Derelicts transports players to a grim dystopian future, where mankind has scattered across the galaxy and human society has split into two distinct classes. Players take on the role of a stateless outcast living off scraps from derelict alien stations and spaceships—while dreaming of discovering a fabled alien derelict ship that can provide a voucher for citizenship and a cozy life on a hospitable planet.

Players will build and control a squad of up to three mercenary characters and start exploring discovered derelict ships within reach of the scavenger base. As they search procedurally generated derelicts for loot and clues, players will encounter many friendly inhabitants and traders—but more often various adversaries. To survive, the player must defeat enemies in tactical turn-based fights where randomly-drawn cards offer an ever-changing arsenal of combat actions. As players proceed through Campaign mode, they’ll gain experience for their crew, find clues, and salvage loot from dead bodies before resupplying and upgrading once back at their base. The scavengers’ home station gives players the opportunity to heal and level-up mercenaries, recruit new allies, equip them, upgrade gear, and recharge energy reserves that power the squad’s suits during missions.

Game Features

  • Better Together: A compelling mix of turn-based RPG combat and card deck balancing
  • Comic Book Sci-Fi Worlds: Experience a dystopian world with a hand-drawn and inked feel
  • Every Battle Is Unique: Build the ultimate deck, but know that random card draws at the start of each battle will require fresh strategy to win
  • Search, Scan, Salvage, and Survive: Explore derelict stations and ships by scanning ahead, searching for loot, and using strategy to win tough battles
  • Build a Winning Team: Manage a squad of up to three mercenary allies with stat customization, ability tree-based upgrades, and upgradeable gear
  • Two Game Modes: Play through the story-based Campaign or jump into Arena battles
