Mysterious Space was originally created for the 2014 7-Day Rogue-Like competition, but has received many updates since! It features many familiar rogue-like elements - including potions, equipment, and procedurally-generated worlds - but is ultimately a side-scrolling action shooter.

0.10.3 released!

full changelog is here: https://mysteriousspace.com/changelog/0-10-x/

but before I summarize: there's a bug I've been experiencing on my computer, but haven't been able to reproduce anywhere else: in fullscreen mode, Mysterious Space runs SUPER-slow! unplayably slow! I've checked with a couple other people, and a couple other computers I have access to, and so far the bug SEEMS to be isolated to my computer...?? strange...

if you also have unplayably-slow framerates in fullscreen, please let me know!

ON TO THE CHANGES:

* eliminated more instances where you'd start a level RIGHT ON TOP OF A MINIBOSS. because that's super uncool.
* a new enemy: Wezen Web-walker
* a new accessory: Stasis Field Generator
* a few equipment & subroutine tweaks
* some Ocean worlds are now narrow and super-deep (I thought about doing this for Lava worlds, but that was too mean :P)
* made some improvements to the internationalization/translation code, to allow for more-complex string replacements. thank you, fedprod, for suggesting this!

About This Game

Originally made for 7DRL 2014, Mysterious Space tasks you with delving deep into the ZZ-Omega sector to recover an important piece of information, and to return with that information in one piece.

To get there, you'll have to stop at planets along the way to find much-needed fuel.

Arm yourself with procedurally-generated weapons, armors, and shields to defeat the enemies that stand in your way.

Features

  • Local co-op, up to five players
  • Procedurally-generated planets, including forest worlds, desert worlds, ice worlds, lava worlds, and others
  • "Alien Artifacts" and "Advanced Technology", analogous to the potions and scrolls of rogue-likes: does the Red Alien Artifact repair armor this game? Or will it scramble your sensors for 10 seconds?
  • Unlockable ships and ship upgrades
  • Procedurally-generated weapons, shields, armor, and accessories to equip yourself with
  • Various enemies and mini-bosses, with distinct movement patterns/AI
  • "Secret logs" that reveal the lore of the world (galaxy? universe?)
  • Supports XBox-compatible gamepads (you'll need them for co-op!)

Mysterious Space's soundtrack - by DDRKirby(ISQ) - is available for listening and purchasing at bandcamp: https://ddrkirbyisq.bandcamp.com/

System Requirements

    Minimum:
    • OS: 7 to 10
    • Memory: 100 MB RAM
    • DirectX: Version 9.0
