Haarlem, The Netherlands: Indie game publisher Iceberg Interactive and developer Interactive Fate are releasing a new update today to their highly-rated space survival game Shortest Trip to Earth! Prepare yourself for your trip back to Earth, and let this update make your journey even more challenging than before. Check out the gameplay video below to see the awesome new sectors and features that this update brings.
‘Enter the Spideraa’ is the 8th Early Access update of the game and it features two brand new levels: Sector 7 and 8. The update also includes:
- A new ship: be the commander of the brand-new Warpshell ship.
- Exotic new species: battle the new hostile species Spideraa and witness a completely new ending to the game.
- Enhanced crew skills: improve your crew’s skills with the warp-drive operation skill, the bridge operating skill, the research skill, the firefighting skill and the shield operation skill.
- Visual updates to certain space stations.
- UI/UX improvements and significant bug fixes.
Interactive Fate CEO and Lead Game Designer Edvin Aedma says:
“This new update is important not only because it introduces two fresh sectors and the Spideraa faction, but also because of changes to economy mechanics and related UI/UX improvements. The introduction of long-awaited skills and a new spaceship (it's partially made of cloned warp animal tissue!) will increase the range of strategies one can adopt to maximize one’s survival chances. We hope the community and players love it as much as we do. And we will of course keep expanding all of it...”
Shortest Trip to Earth is available in Early Access now on Steam, with a full release scheduled for Summer 2019.
Supporting assets including trailers, videos, new screenshots and fact sheets are available via the Shortest Trip to Earth Press Kit. For media requests, including developer interviews and latest preview builds, please email email@example.com.
