レビュー

“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

ゲームについて

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!

While the AI's decisions are weird at times, it's still a pretty funny ♥♥♥♥take of social media, f2p titles, science-fiction, and relationships, period. It's also pretty open-ended, allows for a lot of strategies to be taken, and is pretty adjustable if you want more/less challenge.

Also beating the game via canny trading and obscene wealth gets you a Ferengi joke and the ability to flip off everyone else as the place blows up. 10/10.

Note: I got this game for basically free in a bundle, which definitely colors my opinion.

Pros:
+ You can customize your character with lots of options/colors/races/stuff.
+ Good sci-fi in-jokes.
+ The thrill of moving up the social and job ladders.
+ The feeling of loss when your romantic partner and/or friends get vaporized on away missions.
+ The betrayal when your partner dumps you (especially if you were just about to leverage that relationship into a new job!)

Cons:
- Still somewhat buggy. I completed the game via the “bribery” track, but got the achievement for the “tons o’ cash” track. I’ve noticed some minor visual glitches.
- A lot of repetition. Especially if you’re not sleeping your way to the top, you’re spending weeks doing the same tasks over and over.
- Some NPC ♥♥♥♥♥♥baggery. What, you’re annoyed that I don’t spend time with you? Well, I tried to set up activities together with you all Saturday and Sunday, but you were busy! Stop sending snooty messages about how I’m letting you down!
- Not a lot of interaction. Sometimes work will give you special events. You have no control over these. Sometimes you’re picked for an away team. You have no control over those either.
- Replay-ability: not a whole lot of it. The game gives you 5 paths to win, but you’re pretty much going to be playing the same game and doing the same things no matter which way off you eventually pick.

Overall:
+ Worth picking up if you can get it cheap, then worth playing through to the end once. Took me ~5 hours.

Redshirt is a wonderfully satirical game about people and situational manipulation. It does make you question a validaty of the facebook and social media controlled society we live in today.
