“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

À propos du jeu

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.

This game is absolutely hilarous if you've ever been a part of Facebook, whether you liked it or not!

If you use the activity feed here on Steam, you'll totally understand what I'm talking about.
Redshirt deals with many complicated social interactions ranging from cause and effect of inviting and talking to certain people and forgetting about others. Misunderstandings and jealousy from your coworkers adds to the chaos and comedy in this game.

9/10 Not much of an in-game tutorial available, but fairly understandable anyway!

TLDR: Try and get the game during a sale, or in a bundle. It's not worth $10.

Star Trek fans will pick up on some humour, otherwise it is a relatively easy game to play for all, without too much effort, and can be picked up and started up again without having to remember or re-learn how to play.

It's a time-waster game that mimicks Facebook, and various Sim-type where you learn skills, and try to play your career, your relationships, or bribery-tactics into getting off the space station before it goes kerboom.

It has some fun to it, but the longevity is really determined by how much you like repetitive play. It's quirky, good for a laugh, but not a $10 one.

Le jeu souffre encore de bugs (et pas des petits), il est répétitif, pas très joli. Même à 10 euros il ne vaut pas son prix. Une grande déception.
L'humour est présent, et il fonctionne, mais guère plus longtemps qu'une partie... si on a le courage de recharger d'anciennes sauvegardes à cause des bugs pour finir une partie!
Les objectifs automatiques sont finalement tout ce qui motive le joueur, qui n'est jamais poussé à découvrir ou à explorer. Après quelques minutes on finit par passer tous les textes et à cliquer automatiquement, en se limitant à la lectures des évènements rares en espérant rire un peu. Puis on se dit qu'on a fichu 10 euros (20 euros pour ceux qui payent plein pot) et on clique rageusement sur le bouton "quitter".
Prenez-le uniquement si vous pouvez l'avoir à moins de 5 euros et si vous n'attendez pas autre chose qu'un peu d'humour "trekkie".
