"Characters run the spectrum: you can be a lesbian, hit on aliens, and possibly be hassled by bigots."

평가

“Like a socially-aware velociraptor, Redshirt is a clever girl... Smart, savvy, and satirical.”
7.5/10 – PC Gamer

“Redshirt has everything I've ever wanted in a social sim: satire, addictive mechanics and buckets of cheesy sci-fi puns.”
8/10 – Polygon

“Most games in the life sim genre would punish you for playing incorrectly, but Redshirt thrives on transgressions. Don’t let the charming, low-key tone and gentle referential humor fool you, this is pitch black stuff.”
8/10 – Paste Magazine

게임에 대해

Redshirt is the comedy sci-fi sim about social networking aboard a space station, starring the station's most ambitious low-ranking peon: you! Navigate the professional and interpersonal politics of the ubiquitous "Spacebook" to curry favor among friends and colleagues. As intense intergalactic conflict rages around you, it's up to you to accrue those all-important "likes" on your status updates! Whether you're looking for love, opportunities for promotion, or even a chance to play Zero-G golf with the captain, you can schmooze your way through social circles and claw your way up the career ladder. Perhaps you too can finally achieve the dream of an off-station transfer, or even the Redshirt's opportunity of a lifetime: being sent on an away-mission!

"Redshirt’s take on science fiction clichés is amusing, telling short stories in the form of status updates and messages, but the activity of playing the game is rather intense, even though it’s a turn-based life management sim. As if accidentally snubbing friends and causing heartbreak wasn’t enough, a short while into your misadventure, a disturbing message arrives. A calamity is coming. The station is doomed. People will die." - Rock Paper Shotgun

"Spying on an ex in a video game even though there’s no tangible benefit to doing so WHATS GOING ON" - Red Door Blue Key

Redshirt received an Honorable Mention in the 2014 IGF Awards for Excellence in Narrative!

Social Networking, But Not As We Know It...


Redshirt is a comedy sci-fi social networking simulation game. Create & customise your character, a brand new arrival aboard space station Megalodon-9, where you start your career on the lowest possible rung: a Transporter Accident Cleanup Technician. You also realise that everyone on the station is required to use the proprietary social network, "Spacebook"!

You hear rumours something terrible will happen soon aboard the station, and it's up to you to stop being a disposable nobody before it's too late! You can do this by interacting (through Spacebook!) with randomly-generated, AI-driven characters with their own unique personalities, trying to win friends and influence station citizens. Or, you can focus on what skills you need to climb the fairly-extensive career tree. Or, save up your KarmaCreds. Or, flirt your way up the station. The choice is yours, and there are different strategies. You just have a limited time in which to do it, otherwise... terrible things will happen. You are a Redshirt, after all!

Features

  • Satirical, tongue-in-cheek social simulation, filled with humour and political intrigue.
  • Detailed character creation: choose from 5 different species, from human to tentacled squid creature!
  • Each game is unique: Megalodon-9 is full of procedurally generated AI-driven characters, each with their own random personalities and profile pictures.

  • Customise station settings: define the kinds of personalities you'll encounter, from friendly chatterboxes to self-obsessed bigots.
  • Update your Spacebook, strategically 'like' statuses, and send private messages to your fellow station citizens.
  • Arrange Spacebook 'events' with your friends, frenemies, and even higher-ranking officers, to influence your relationships and skills.
  • Multiple routes to success through turn-based gameplay, from skills-based diligence, to romance, to charismatic schmoozing.
  • Navigate an extensive, non-linear career tree, by gaining the right skills... or just by making the right friends.
  • Make friends and manage romantic relationships -- if you can handle the drama!
  • Strategically manage your interests and skills.
  • Buy items in the Self-Help Object Purveyor (S.H.O.P.) to increase your stats and skills, from RoboCats to illegal hoverbikes!

  • Away missions!
  • Humorous parody of social networking culture.
  • Puns! So many puns.

Redshirt is a Facebook simulator with Sci Fi window dressing. Your mission is to social engineer your way to the top of the space station hierarchy. Along the way, you can make friends, start (and end) relationships, and arrange events with your cohabitants.

The gameplay involves making a limited number of moves per day on "Spacebook". This includes liking posts, sending messages and friend invites, and inviting friends to events. These events not only bring you closer to your friends, but will also change your interests. You must balance your interests to make friends with whoever your desired target is (either a goal given to you by the game, or the hiring manager at the next job you want). During the day you will also have to work, which will give you money and have an effect on your relationships.

Redshirt is one of those games where it's fun to tool around in for a few minutes, but after a bit you feel like you have seen everything that the game has to offer. I managed to get a really good promotion by dating the hiring manager, but the only reward I really got was that I could do the process all over again for an even better job. For those that enjoy that type of manipulation, maybe the fun can last for a few cycles. For me, I got bored rather quickly. The main feedback you get from your actions is your changing relationship status with other inhabitants of the space station. It comes in the form of the green and red bar that will be familiar to anyone that has played the Sims. The real issue I had with it was that there is not much separating one character from the next, besides a cartoon portait that looks a little bit the same from one character to the next. besides alien race of course. You never really feel like you are interacting with separate characters, like you would in the Sims for instance.

I do not recommend playing Redshirt. I felt like I was just playing Facebook with generic robots, which I guess in the end was what I was really doing. From my time with it, I didn't feel the motivation needed to keep advancing.

This is the definition of a "Time Waster". Slightly fun for 10-15 minutes then gets repetitive.

Overview
Simply a facebook simulator taken a bit further including events, work, career advancement, and romantic events. I do not recommend this game due to how there are broken achievements where only .04% of players have completed them mysteriously. You can still safely complete 18/20, but they're not as rare as the broken ones. It also seems that the developers have completely abandoned this game, so don't hold any hope towards updates. I've tried scrolling through the game's programming in order to manually unlock the achievements, but I cannot find them.

Story
You are an ....[Race] named ...[Name] sent to work for a big space station where there will be an extinction event pending xxx days. The game is about your journey to prevent, or accept your death aboard the doomed Station; however, you may die even before the extinction event on one of the legendary exploratory missions with comical & fatal consequences.

You will have two attributes to look after throughout the course of your journey: Health & Happiness. These two attributes are very important during surprise expeditions since they may decide whether you live or die.

In order to advance your career you have to do events/specific jobs in order advance skills. You will be given an option to escape through: Captain's Attendant[Career], Ambassador's lover[Romance], High Ranking Officer's Lover[Romance], Ted the black market[Bribery], and T'arg's overpriced ticket[Rich].


Final Decision
It's a completed, but broken game, so I would consider it a borderline cash grab since it's been abandoned by the developer.

우주 페이스북 게임. 소재는 독창적이었으나 재미가 없다
일도 하고 밥도 먹고 메세지도 보내고 여자친구도 사귀고 꽤나 다양한 행동을 할 수 있지만 모두 재미가 없다
텍스트가 거의 전부인 이런 게임에서는 등장 캐릭터의 입체적인 성격과 재밌는 이벤트 등이 있어야 게임이 흥미롭고 즐거워진다
이 게임은 정확히 반대다
이 게임 캐릭터의 매크로 대화는 채 10분도 되지 않아 질려버리며 모든 즐길거리들은 말라 비틀어져 있는 것 같다
게다가 캐릭터 디자인은 안 그래도 없던 매력을 뿌리채 뽑아 불구덩이에 집어넣어 버렸다
특별히 꼭 해야 할 이유가 없다면 플레이하지 마라 그냥 별로 재미가 없다

한 우주 정거장의 사회 구성원이 되어 살아가는 게임. 사회적 관계를 맺음에 있어 주요 수단으로 사용하는 것이 놀랍게도 "SNS"이다. 이름도 낯이 익는데 'Spacebook'이다. 이 서비스를 이용해 다른 이의 활동에 '좋아요'를 누르기도 하고 데이트를 하거나 이벤트를 새로 여는 등 다양한 활동을 하게 된다. 그렇기 때문에 모든 활동이 SNS 상에 중계된다. 누구랑 만나서 식사를 한 사실이 바로 포스팅 형식으로 올라가고 그것에 영향을 받아 누군가는 소외된 기분을 느끼기도 한다. 질투를 느끼기도 하고 복잡한 인간 관계가 얽히고 섥힌다.

복잡한 인간 관계 속에서 다양한 활동을 하는 한편 자신의 관심사를 개발하거나 능력을 길러 더 높은 등급의 직업을 가질 수도 있다. 하나의 직업을 갖고서는 어느 정도 수행을 해야 그 직업을 마스터할 수 있고 적정 랭크의 직업 어느 것 하나라도 마스터를 해야 다음 랭크의 직업에 지원할 수 있기 때문에 잘 선택해야한다. 이직은 이직과 관련된 '동료', '(특히) 상사'와 (당연하게도) 연결되어있기 때문에 인간 관계를 건강하게 유지하려 한다면 잦은 이직은 별로 좋지 않다.

게임의 그리드 이미지만 보았을 때는 모종의 우주선 관리 게임인 줄 알았지만 조금 해보니 정말 색다른 종류의 RPG 라는 것을 알게 되었다. 인간의 '사회적 역할'에 대해서 생각해볼 수 있었고 꽤 독특한 재미를 지니고 있다. 당연하게도 친밀한 관계를 형성한 뒤에 '연애'를 할 수도 있는데, 다양성이 중요시되는 요즘의 시대에 맞게 가장 처음에 자신의 성향을 선택해 동성 연애를 할 수도 있고 양성 모두와 연애를 할 수도 있다. 개인적으로는 무언가 '나'의 성취를 위해서 공부를 하거나 활동을 하게 될텐데, 그럴 때마다 애인이 외롭다느니 개인 메세지로 보고 싶다고 오는 것이 하도 많아서 정말 곤혹스러웠다. 결국 나에게 저주하는 메세지를 보내며 사이는 영영 돌아올 수 없게 되었다.

깔끔한 인터페이스에 적당히 합리적인 반응들 때문인지 게임 진행이 크게 어렵지는 않다. 하지만 '영어'가 주로 사용되기 때문에 영어를 어느 정도 무슨 뜻인지는 알 수 있어야 진행이 어렵지 않을 것이다. 그렇지 않다면 누군가를 비난하는 포스트를 아무 뜻도 모르고 '좋아요' 누를 수도 있기 때문이다. 그 외에 다양한 관심사나 능력이 구성되어 있고 그것을 바탕으로 좀 더 다양한 활동을 펼칠 수 있는 점 등에서는 성장의 재미를 맛볼 수도 있을 것이다. 아주 재미있다고는 할 수 없지만 제 나름 독특한 시스템을 갖추었다는 점이 의미가 있다고 느낀다. 한편으로는 SNS에 자신의 일상을 낯낯이 공개하는 요즘의 어떤 경향이 만약에 극화된다면 이런 사회가 되지 않을까 하는 재미있는 상상도 해볼 수 있을 것 같다.
