About This Game

Your orders, Captain?
You've always wanted to sit in a big captain's chair and shout, "More power to the shields!" and "Fire the torpedoes!" I have too, and this is why I built Quintet.

Quintet is a scifi cooperative, cross-platform, multiplayer, "crew" game where players work harmoniously to control the same ship. There are 5 roles: Captain, Helm, Tactical, Engineering and Science. How successful you are will depend on how well you all work together. You can play Quintet for hours for free and enjoy 20 playable ships online. There are 5 additional ships available with an upgrade.

Truly multiplatform - No one is left out!
Mac, PC, Linux, iOS, and Android can all play together on the same ships and in the same missions. The Captain can be on an iPhone with a Tactical officer on a Linux box with an Engineer on an Android tablet with a Science officer on a Mac.

No friends? No problem!
Quintet has one, two, three, four and five player ships. All the different ship types can all play together in the same scenarios. Quintet plays over the Internet so you can all play together even if you can't be in the same room. Easily drop in and drop out any time.

No Internet, no cry
Playing in offline mode or in LAN mode? You'll have access to everything (all scenarios and Trio ship too). Not sure if you want to upgrade? Just set the game to offline mode and try it out first! I figured this was the good Indie game developer thing to do.

Several game types
Quintet features lots of different scenarios for co-op and pvp game play. Work together to fend off a massive armada or have a 20-ship free-for-all. Upgraded version includes beloved game types such as Capture the Flag and King of the Hill (my hill is a polyhedron).

Always Fresh
I love working on this game. I update Quintet all the time. I'm constantly adding new features and new scenarios. Got an idea? Post your idea in the forum.

Intuitive controls
I wanted non-gamers to be able to play Quintet. I've simplified and streamlined the interface so you can drag in more friends of yours to play this crazy space game.

Control DMX and Philips HUE Lights
Get immersive! Quintet has a built in simple scripting language for controlling DMX lights and Philips HUE lights. You can trigger lights when you fire weapons or when the shields are hit.

This is an amazing game experience that may only be nulled by the realization that you are literally the only person on the face of God's green Earth playing. Taking that into consideration, and given that the game is free and takes up very little space, this game easily scores a 9.5/10 in my book. This game has a very little in the way of learning curves, so it shouldn't be hard for anyone to pick up and play after a minute or two of floundering around at the controls, but keep in mind only the most well coordinated team of hardened players will come out alive should conflict arise amongst them. There are AI to fight against so you can play by yourself, but given the low required specs and the ease of use, you should easily be able to get friends to join you in this epic space combat simulator.

-tldr: Great game, bring friends!

Quintet is a cooperative, cross-platform, multiplayer spaceship simulator game. It worked, looked good, played good, sounded good. For free, you can fly Solo, dual, quartet, quintet ships, of 5 different races. Has PVE, PVP, Coop missions. You can Coop with people already in mission. You can join large ship crew stations. Try it, maybe you would like it.

I guess its not that bad of the idea...but i dont like how its executed

Pros:
- there are dosens of various match modes, and players are able the create their own
- team based gameplay that can be fun with using VOIP or at LAN parties
- no microtransactions (completly free to play)
- if you like challenge, you can try controlling 6 man ship all by yourself; you can also select if you want 1 man ship , 2 man ship...etc

Cons:
- it is really, really hard to find someone to play this game with, no one is playing it anmore
- graphics could be better
- game feels boring, way too bland since there are only 3 weapons, and nothing to unlock
- combat and movement is really bad, it is probably better when you play with team

Hey, did you like Artemis? Complex UI's and super hardcore learning curve? Space? SPACE?!?

yeah, probably a bit tough to grab and go, but grab a few friends and laugh like maniacs as you repeatedly fire off into nothingness while your helmsman decided that asteroid would make a great hood ornament. Science studies the bottom of their glass (what, you aren't drinking by now?) while engineering tries to turn everything around them into some trek scale metaphor.

Definitely a party game if you have teamspeak, ABSOLUTELY a party game if you have drunk jackasses enough to fill a ship or two.

10/10

"I cannah get the rating any higher, captain!"

It's a very cool concept of segmenting rolls and requiring communication between them. The game has a lot of potential to be one of the best space simulation games out there. However, at it's current state, that's all there is to do. Your captain tells you to go somewhere, you go there, there will be some static objects to shoot, you shoot them, there is probably a base there, you shoot it, you get absolutely nothing for doing this, and repeat the process.

It was fun for about an hour, but once you realize that there is no objective, no salvage, no leveling, no money making, no exploring and no story, it all just falls apart. It was released 2 years ago after this review. I played it a year ago, but couldn't find anyone to even play with. There are people playing, but it still doesn't cut it as a game just yet. I look forward to this game and others, but it seems like it's another one that stuck in perpetual development until no one cares any more. I'll change my recommendation when the game is updated to the point of being more than a cool concept.

I backed this game on Kickstarter and it has come a long way. It is still a work in progress but if you play with friends it is very fun. It would be better with voice chat but you can use TeamSpeak. If you like Star Trek this is the game for you. Teamwork is a must. If your on a good ship with a good crew nothing is better.

P.S. The DLC is just actually buying the game. The free version is just the demo (which is still fun). You can also play on your Iphone or Android and the players playing on Mobile can play on the same ships as the players on PC and Mac.

Quintet is a fun cooperative experience, it's F2P strategy helps it grow and get more people involved with the game, and the 5/20$ expansions are completely optional.
PROS
  • Co-op online multiplayer actually feels like flying a real spacecraft
  • 5 races,4 types of ships(trio was OP, they added a price to that), 20 different machines of destrucion
Cons
  • Small bugs here and there
  • Inexperienced players, including myself. Easily fixable by adding a bigger tutorial
In the end this game deserves:
4 pro crew members out of 5, best captain ever, and a mentor for 5th crew member #forthesakeofit

Do you like Star Trek, blew all your money on replica phasers, but HATE microtransactions? Then get Quintet. Not any of those things? GET QUINTET! Seriously, this game is an amazing space-flight sim, if noting else. The free version (which, don't worry, is still a full game) can be a bit lacking in things to do, as people doing the actual missions are scarce and, while fun, there's not much to do in Open Space when there isn't alot of people, but that's why you need to get this game. it is not only an incredibly fun co-op spaceship simulator, it's a fun FREE-TO-PLAY MMO WITH NO MICROTRANSACTIONS, something fairly rare to see on steam these days, that needs all the people it can get. I got the free version on launch week, and am saving up for the $5.00 DLC, and i have seen the amount of positive reviews shoot from about 5-6 to more than 10x that, and all I have to say about that is that they are well deserved. Get. This. Game.

Quintet is a game that breathes new life into sci-fi space combat by introducing the ability to fly one ship with multiple people. The free version gets a little boring when playing it by yourself, but that's OK because it was designed to be played with friends. With friends it never gets old, blowing up enemy hoards and shouting commands to your crew. But, this isn't everything it has to offer because if you pay only $5 you get access to a full role-play universe that I haven't even touched yet.

To make it simple:

The Pro's:
  • Wonderful Coop
  • Multiple Missions
  • Open World (Play with anyone and everyone)
  • The ability to create scenarios
  • And more to discover for yourself

The Con's:
  • When you halt your thrust you instantly stop moving instead of free floating
  • When alone the free version get's a little old
  • Not sure what else I could complain about.

Overall it's a great coop game, but alone (with the free version) it's a little boring.

Great base for a game, has a ton of potential and is really fun. All I would ask for is more meaning to the game than just going around and blowing up ships, heres some idea's

*Maybe like a point system with better costumization (but plz dont make it money based customization :D)
*Different levels of control since the basic controls are too easy most of the time
*In-game voice chat
*Smoother and more zoomed out camera would be nice

~This game is amazing~
