Site Migration

Sometime in the next few days the Ghostship: Aftermath, CDF Ghostship, and MAG Studios websites will be going down and migrating to a new web host. We expect the move to be completed sometime next week and apologize in advance for any inconvenience this might cause.

Don't forget, we'll still be here on the forums if you need to contact us for anything!

“The lack of hand-holding makes the game much more fun, adding to the sense that this is a survival game, not an action game”
7/10 – TheRiftArcade

“Ghostship also has some amazing acoustics that will chill your bones and a narrative that offers a nod to B-movies style”
4/5 – Region2Show

Ghostship Aftermath - the game that takes SCI-FI SURVIVAL HORROR to a new level. Prepare for a new breed of survival horror with rogue-like elements!
_____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Over 350 years in the future mankind has embraced space travel and exploration. We have colonized many worlds and spread ourselves across the galaxy. The Colonial Defense Force (CDF) is responsible for the security of Earth and her colonies, and our only line of defense against the unknown.

On March 1st 2368 contact was lost with our most distant colony, located in the Icarus System. The Dreadnought class spaceship CDF Goliath was dispatched on March 3rd 2368 to investigate. The CDF lost contact with the Goliath not long after it entered the Icarus System on March 12th 2368. She is now presumed a Ghostship!

Before sending any more CDF forces it is common practice to send in an Advance Scientific Evaluation Team (ASET) comprised of 2 specialists from the Colonial Science Division (CSD) to determine if there are any biological or scientific threats which would impede a salvage operation.

You play the part of Dr. Jake Abbots who boards the CDF Goliath while your partner, Dr. David Riggs, stays behind on the CSD Alexis as mission control. You have radio contact with Dr. Riggs and he will give you objectives, advice, and help you along the way. Or at least that was the plan. As you will soon find out, anything can happen aboard the Ghostship...

Your actions will decide your fate in this non-linear sci-fi survival horror game with real consequences. You have limited oxygen and sprinting uses it 4x as fast, while your helmet has a non-rechargeable, non-replaceable 1 hour flashlight battery. So manage them well to avoid suffocation, or dying to unseen horrors lurking in the dark. After all, dead is dead is dead. With permadeath there are no do-overs, when you die you have to start a new game, but with random events and multiple story-line branches death is just a new beginning, and every game will offer something new!

Features

- Instant Action Mode, get into the action faster with a few weapons and no permadeath in this gamemode included in the Halloween update.
- Random events and multiple story-line branches - no two games will be the same.
- Survival horror - not a regular FPS, so choose your fights carefully.
- Huge focus on atmosphere and immersion, on a huge and mostly functional military spacecraft.
- Open world - explore and uncover secrets and clues to find weapons, shields, and medikits.
- Roguelike-like - with elements such as Permadeath and random enemy spawns.
- Survival elements - limited flashlight battery and oxygen management.
- Signature Helmet View - a living in-game hud with no artificial overlay. (see screen shots)
- Physics - Normal gravity and zero-G.
- Hassle Free DLC - allows you to free roam with no enemies or objectives to hassle you. Plus it's free.
- Free additional content scheduled for release Oct 30, 2014 for Halloween.
- Made for virtual reality (VR), you get both the non-VR version and VR version so when Oculus Rift becomes available in 2015 you'll be ready!

*****WARNING: THIS GAME CONTAINS FLASHING LIGHTS & LOTS OF BLOOD n` GUTS! ******

So what is Ghostship Aftermath?

It is basically somekind of a mix between the good old System Shock 2 and Dead Space. You play as some "dude" that has to board a ship where something "good"? has happened. Oh I meant bad! Its always something bad happening! So once you do board, you gotta follow some directives from you partner and not long after, you get cutoff from him and some A.I. takes over the coms and directs you to a list of objectives. It all seems cool doesn't?

I'll sum up the pros and cons so you can get a better overview and decide for yourself whether or not to get this game.


PROS:
+Solid Atmosphere (ships noise reminiscent of System Shock 2)
+Cool Design concept (This is where the game shines the most: Every playthrough is different. At one pt, the A.I. can be helpful, the next pt it hinders your progress and on another pt, it can even be dead so you're all alone trying to figure out what to do).
+Infinity ammo for weapons but takes time to recharge
+Story is predictable but serviceable nonetheless. Some elements do change between each playthrough which keeps things interesting.
+Price drop of the game. Kudos to the devs 'cause when I got this game, it was very overpriced.

CONS:
-Technical glitches (it says on the game page that this game release many patches concerning the pletora of bugs and glitches but it is still infested by them. On instances, I kept getting stucked on items and couldn't move. I saw enemies going through walls also.
-Truly bad controls and aiming mecanism is very flawed (THIS IS MY MAIN GRIPE OVER THIS GAME: The aiming is very pathetic. Even when an enemy is right in front of you and aim at the head, you're missing the target anyway).
-False controller support (It's mentioned that the is controller compatible, but they kind of lie. The controller works, sure, but sometimes it won't sprint on controller anymore after certain scripted event).
-Weak graphical settings (Little to no graphical options. Only two resolutions available. No eye candy as you are used to in any modern games. Can't even change game settings when in-game. Also the visuals are quite bad, even on their aleged graphical patch. I know this is an indie game and its easy to pick negatively at the graphics. But honestly, the graphics could have really been more improved. At least, the game was playable on my end, compared to other gamers that seemed to have difficulty running the game).
-Auto save only. Can't save the game manually.
-Zombie sound glitch that can still be heard after you killed the zombie. Only way to make it stop was to quit and reload the game.
-Same enemies throughout the whole game. Same twitchy movements and even walk/crawl through walls.
-Mostly average and at times, terrible voice acting. (Granted this is an indie game but whoa, at times, it was really awful; especially the voice of your ally. The A.I. is quite fine by me though. It actually sounds like a computerized AI voice! Surely doesn't sound like SHODAN but it is decent!).


OVERALL:
This game has a good concept and some very good ideas. Sadly, many things hold it back. It is still a commendable work the developers did on this project and hopefully you guys can only improve on a potential sequel. I truly wish you up your game next time, especially on the glitches, bugs, voice acting and my biggest irritant, the poor aiming mechanism. The graphics can always get better and hopefully on a potential sequel, they'll be more optimized and up-to-date to modern gaming standards.

RECOMMENDATION:
I can't reccommend this game at this time. Cool concept but marred with inconsistencies, bugs and glitches. I did read on the reviews section of this game store page that Ghostship Aftermath did improved on the glitches and bugs so that is something to keep in mind. The devs are working on their project and that is noteworthy. Sadly, the game lost my attention with all the numerous cons I've mentioned earlier. The game did got a price drop recently but even so, I still wouldn't advise anyone to get this game. Wait up for a potential sequel when aspects of this game should (hopefully) be fixed by then.

RATING:
5.0 / 10

PS. I do not own any VR equipment at the moment so I cannot comment on that matter here.

Again, like many 'indie' games on here, this title has some decent concepts which tend to give players hope that they aren't playing a 'lemon'. In fact, this game is pretty much a solid turd. 11/10 I would poop on this game if it were a hard-copy and wipe my butt with its instructional manual.

1) The environment is a bit ridiculous. I mean blood bathed walls with like one or two human corpses present... That's sort of poop.

2) The aliens seem like they just don't know what the Hell they're doing. From the way they look, to how they interact to attack the player. The aliens range from giant flea-like creatures which come farting at you from nowhere to smurf-like zombies that make you feel like you're trapped in some cheap Haji rip-off of the Goonies with cloned versions of the Sloth; made even more ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ through the cloning process and rapidly multiplying cellular generation.

Oh yes. Watch in horror as those things crowd into a narrow corridor swarming you, and smile with glee as you dump endless rounds of the worst possible ammunition from what could be high-tech airsoft rifles from the far future into their sponge powered bodies. Then die... :/

3) Go here; do this; maybe run from that? "Eh I don't know, what the Hell, why not?" basically sums up the every play-through. Try as you might it doesn't get much better than that.

I tried flushing the toilets in the bathrooms to see if they would suck my player out into oblivion because I was having so much fun. But much to my dismay the character I was controlling did nothing of the sort while he breathed heavily in his space 'suit' (probably hoping he'd just passout and be eaten by a giant-flea or something).

If you MUST be curious and buy this game, don't do what I did, and don't be sober. Maybe get smashed on a bottle of cheap vodka beforehand if you are of age.

The consept is very good, the execution very bad.

Basic controls are sluggish and poor in general. You cant map controls.
You cant aim down at your feet and many enemies get close very fast and kill you because you CANT aim at them probberly"! Thats probberly my main reason to quit.

The sounds are O.K. but not great, and the voice acting sounds like when a pal and got drunk and played with a bad qulity recorder -.-

The game requires a LOT of pacience as movement is low and running makes you run out of oxygin much faster.

All the textures belong in the system schok era.

All the "plots" I tried were very similar and I got a white bunny chace twise in a row.

Points for Idia
Points for Atmusphere which works

Over all I have to give it 4/10

I don't know if I can reccommend this one. The atmosphere and graphics are really kewl, but game play is lousy. It's hard to manuver, its hard to pick things up, it's hard to aim, and you run out of ammo too quickly. I had a horrible time just getting the game to load; I "played" 78 minutes of the game (according to steam) before I ever saw anything past the loading screen. I'm going to give it a "thumbs down" because of the difficulties. If the gameplay and controls can be smoothed out, I'll change that.

I enjoy everything about this game the tense atmosphere, weapons, and having to salvage what weapons/ammo you can find to survive, with the random generated Objectives & Storyline.

However, all of these are overpowered by the bugs and glitches that occur in-game. The closest I've gotten to completeing a story arc (last objective) I opened the door to it and fell through the level..if that wasn't enough, the enemies when they attack teleport all over the place (at close range) leaving you the only option of spraying and praying you kill them. I recommend leading them through a doorway or kiting them and keeping them at range, in order to properly shoot them.

I can only hope they address these issues in the sequel "CDF:Ghostship" and make it a worthwhile experience.
