What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Sector Six has been in development since January 2015. Core features have been implemented and in order to perfect the game, we require player feedback. Aside from feedback, the game needs some funding to be finished, so releasing Sector Six as Early Access is an ideal solution. Sector Six is currently in a late beta stage and with your help it will be improved in every way possible!”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“The estimated release of Sector Six is Spring 2018.”

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

“The full game is planned to have new features like legendary parts, mission chains, and boss replaying. Features that are already in game will be expanded. There will be new region missions and new story missions that will lead to an epic culmination - player will have to fight the gigantic Machines. There will be new spaceship parts, abilities for all spaceship classes, colorful parallax backgrounds and improved sound effects. There will be additional language support and a Mac version.
To sum it up, the completed game will have a lot of content that would take many hours to complete and thousands of exciting moments!”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Sector Six is currently in a late beta stage.”

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

“The base price of Sector Six will stay the same after Early Access.”

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

“We will listen to player feedback from Early Access Users and try to include as many ideas as possible. It's not possible to implement all ideas, but the most interesting one will be discussed within the dev team.”

Update! Story mission X, balancing, and Sector Five

This update adds a lot of new stuff!

Story mission X

High Path is active, it's time to travel to a dimension beyond the light of Sector Six.
You need to go there to meet a scientist, imprisoned for his work in the forbidden branch of science.

One more step towards victory.
One more step towards the unknown.

If the Almadi knew what you did and what you're planning to do, you would be imprisoned too.

Tips and part rotation

Spaceship building has a received a small update.
Now it's possible to rotate almost every part.
Building a cool-looking ship has never been so easy!

With the new functionality, comes new controls, and because there is no way I could stuff explanation for part rotating into an already long tutorial, I have added tips!
Now every time you will open spaceship interface, below inventory you will see one of several tips.

One of them will tell you how to rotate parts.


I've been playing Sector Six a lot recently and I noticed that I have too many units.
To fix that, I made amplifiers, cathodes, and anodes as expensive as fractal parts.
This also makes difficulty level rewards even more rewarding.

The other thing that I have noticed was how powerful Searing Beam is.

So, here is what I did:
  • Searing Beam now deals less damage - from 150% pylon damage to 80% pylon damage at level 10.
  • Searing Beam now deals 40% at level 1, instead of 15%.
  • Spending points on Searing Beam now increase Searing Beam damage by 4%.
Finally, diodes used to be too over-powered and made getting high-grade parts way too easy.
So, now to upgrade higher grade parts with diodes you need more diodes.
E.g.: Upgrading fractal part to mythical now requires 5 diodes.

Sector Five

Accessible after completing mission IX and securing Decelerators area, Sector Five contains these features:
  • The region that sells empty parts
  • Three new minions unique to Sector Five
  • Arena mission in which you can fight these unique minions
  • Story mission X
Empty parts

Empty parts are parts with amplifier slots instead of part properties.
E.g.: Empty optimized part instead of 2 properties and 1 amplifier slot has 3 amplifier slots.
So, now you can craft your own parts by amplifying empty parts!
This is another reason why amplifier prices have been increased.

Other changes
  • Map tooltips now show up at the correct height.
  • "Collect" button now shows a tooltip that explains what it does.
  • Corrected Creation Of Energy ability description.
  • Corrected Searing Beam ability description.
  • Corrected shield removal tutorial.
  • Player spaceship now has the same damage and collision graphical effects as the enemies.
  • Eolutch is now level 19 region.
  • Charred Link is now level 20 region.
  • Made new background for High Path region.
  • You will no longer get Through Broken Infinity achievement for completing Time Vortex mission. Hopefully.
  • Black Rain now deals less damage to the spaceship.
Have fun!

Echo #99: Bad week

Last week wasn't any better than previous ones.

I was having weird post-flu paracetamol poisoning induced depression and I had to do a lot of work on the farm.
Because of that, very little progress was made with story mission X, so I don't really have anything to write about.

Instead, here are screenshots from upcoming version:

Until next time!

About This Game

Sector Six is a side-scrolling, sci-fi shooter with silhouette aesthetic, procedural loot and extensive customization.

Save the Universe

Enter distant future and join the desperate fight to stop the Eight Machines from destroying everything.
Unleash apocalyptic weapons, break laws of physics, resurrect ravaged dimensions - nothing is impossible in a war of this scale.

Build your spaceship

Build your spaceship from procedural parts, obtained by destroying minions of the Machines and completing missions.
Every part has various properties and can be placed anywhere on the building field, allowing you to customize performance and appearance of your spaceship however you want.

Become master of spaceship combat

Test not just your spaceship, but also your skills as you dodge enemy projectiles and find the right timing to counterattack with your own.
Each enemy brings new attacks, defenses, and strategies to defeat - it’s up to you to hone your combat skills and take them down.

Spaceship part customization and part sets

Combine, upgrade and re-roll parts to create ones that are ideal for your dream spaceship.
If that is not enough, collect set parts to activate game-change set effects and transform your destroyer of invaders into something even more powerful!

Modular difficulty system

Make the game as hard as you want it to be!
Forget "Easy / Medium / Hard" - the modular difficulty system allows you to modify almost every element of the combat and even gives rewards for it.
