What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We want to develop Unfortunate Spacemen WITH you. We're a small team, and having early players giving us help, feedback and support will help us create the best Shape Shifting Space Based Murder and Deception!™ experience around! You not only get to help shape and influence the game, you're ensured exclusive Early Access content, frequent updates and direct developer contact all throughout the game's development \o/

Check out the Development Starmap for a very in-depth look at our development plans!”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“This is our best guess. We're probably looking at about 1.5 years of frequent updates and development to push the game through Alpha, Beta, and then to release. After release, we plan to support the game and continue updating it with new content.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“We have loads of changes and improvements on the way! You can find a full, detailed list on our Development Starmap.

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game is currently in ALPHA stage. This means the game is still adding features and nothing is really 'locked in' yet. When we switch to BETA, this will mean we are 'feature complete' for release, but the game still needs polish and work. You can check out the currently available (main) features below on the "About the Game" section of the store page, or view the Development Starmap for a super in-depth look.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“The game may change price as it gets closer to full release. After that, the game will follow the general pattern of steadily decreasing in price and frequently going on sale in Steam's many annual sales. The earlier you grab the game, the cheaper it will be! All content updates will also be free. FOREVER.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We are very active on our Twitter (@UnfortSpacemen) as well as our Discord Server. If you want us to see something you've posted, these are you best places to suggest features, get help, or simply talk about the game!”

v0.2.20 JUMP POINT


So why is this patch called Jump Point?

I don't know! Ask Zag

ANYWAY, the main features of this patch are:
  • Optimized netcode, polycounts, and texture sizes across the entire game
  • New Assault Rifle art and animations
  • New Railgun art and animations
  • Loads of quality of life fixes, from faster movement speed to tighter gunplay
https://youtu.be/4R_WY2ccwNo What you'll notice with this patch is that the game "feels" a lot more competent as a shooter thanks to increased movement speed, new weapon animations, new camera animations and all the feedback being moved to client side so impact happens instantly even if you have high latency. Feels good, Spaceman.

The full patch notes are available for you nerds, here: http://steamcommunity.com/app/408900/discussions/2/1488861734104852486/

This is all part of MY ultimate goal to make Unfortunate Spacemen a TRUE FPS so we can eventually introduce a Battle Royale mode to generate some easy $$$ for The Company



(Just kidding...maybe)

NOW: as we work to refine the game we're also going to be adding Single Player & Co-Op missions as the next step in continuing to add more content to the game while also looking to expand the player base for our classic intense shapeshifting action.



Stay tuned, Spacemen - and GET BACK TO WORK!

New Blood! New Price?!



Hey there spacemen! As you might notice, I'M NOT ZAG.

But worry not, Zag's not dead - he's just not here, man

He's taking a well deserved nap after shipping Unfortunate Spacemen v0.2.19 "Residual Heat"

https://youtu.be/iuHDLGkSEEA
A version that includes all sorts of goodies. Like... NEW monster art!



NEW HELMETS!



Including a crossover "Space Cultist" for anyone who also owns our retro FPS "DUSK" on Steam!

http://store.steampowered.com/app/519860/DUSK/
A helmet with cat ears! (Everyone loves cats)



And "The Roughneck" which will be given to anyone who currently owns Unfortunate Spacemen on Steam as a way of thanking you for being here BEFORE the price drop

Rico would be proud of you, Cadet



This patch also contains a whole lot of quality of life improvements and other things such as new weapon sounds, animations and a new and improved Flamethrower! Oh boy!

New Blood is committed to the continual support of Zag as Unfortunate Spacemen heads toward an eventual full 1.0 release with even more game modes, features, content and helmets with cute animal ears on them

So what are you waiting for?!

Get back out there into the vacuum of space and make The Company proud! (or die trying)

About This Game

Unfortunate Spacemen is a multiplayer game about space-based murder in space! Spacemen work diligently to be rescued from their failing outpost, but not everyone is who they claim to be...

Form alliances with other Spacemen and complete objectives, or, if you're not so human -- blend in, disguise yourself, and sabotage plans, betraying your friends and allies in the most gruesome ways imaginable. Death is part of life in space, and you're no exception to the rule. Paranoia runs rampant.

Are you the victim, or the cause?

Check out our Development Starmap to see our full plans!

Current Features:

  • Survive, hunt, or escape on desolate settlements, arctic outposts, derelict space stations, warp-speed hypertrains, or ancient digsites on alien worlds. 14 maps are available right now, with more currently in development, and even more planned after that! (New maps are always FREE!)
  • As a Spaceman, complete objectives to call down the Rescue Shuttle, or hunt the Monster in packs!
  • Proximity Chat: All in-game communication fades with distance from the speaker, so you can roam, sneak, hide, and eavesdrop as you hunt or run from other players!
  • Mimic and devour your 'fellow' Spacemen as the Monster from the blackest reaches of the galaxy! Lay eggs, disguise as other players, transform into your hideous Monster Form, and more!
  • Protect or betray your allies with at least a dozen unique tools, weapons, and items!
  • Rank up through The Company to unlock new customization and perks to customize your playstyle!
  • Security Guards (Bots) roam the facility with diverse personalities. Use them to help learn the ropes and practice, or just add more chaos to a multiplayer game!
  • Supports up to 32 players in a single game!
  • Randomized objectives every time you play. No two rounds play exactly the same!
  • Customize your Spaceman (or Spacewoman) to stand out, or blend in!
  • Additional Co-op Survival Mode: Survive with your friends against progressively more difficult waves of enemies!
