Derelict Redux Update

So this is for the ragtag bunch that are still with me. The Redux update is live. Only a few months overdue (or a year and a half considering the abortive mess the initial "game" was).

Just as a little side by side thing, this was the rebuild in January this year next to it now:

Hopefully it'll run smoothly for everyone, but if it doesn't, let me know in the community hub and i'll get back to work.

Trading cards will be going up tomorrow as I really need some sleep.

And again, if you're still here.

Don't die too much.

January Update

I've started updating the game store and pretty much everything else involved. Due to my general ineptitude, there is going to be some weird stuff going on.

Everything should be updated by tomorrow, as of now the builds are fubared and I've had to dive out the door to go to work. Should be home in about 8 hours and i'll get it all back up and running. If i can whilst i'm at work ill re-enable the old build just to avoid confusion of any "missing exe" issues.

Thanks in advance for your patience.

About This Game

Derelict is a top down, sandbox shooter set in the far distant future.

You have woken up from stasis long after the fall of humanity and must try to survive in this hostile galaxy. Luckily, thousands of years of human colonization have left countless derelict space craft, abandoned space stations and the crumbling remains of human settlements ripe for looting.

Unfortunately the galaxy is not quite dead yet. Genetically modified organisms, hardened for hostile environments, ancient mechanoids with corrupt A.I, rival scavengers, and countless hordes of humans who succumbed to a genocidal nanite plague, infest the dark corners of mankind's broken legacy.


Derelict will not hold your hand. Nor will it take you to A&E and call your mum when you've raided a derelict full of millennia old, raging androids, armed only with a knife. (Okay it will a bit, but only because my testers made me put a tutorial in).

- A wide range of hand crafted and randomly generated environments to explore.
- Dozens of weapons, ships and equipment pieces to loot.
- Multiple difficulties. From rogue light to rogueaaaAAAGH.
- Hordes of enemies to gib.
- NPC's to aid or end.
- Grim Epitaphs. Seek out shrines lamenting your death for phat lewts.
- State of the art 2D graphics with a customisable player character.

Redux overhaul:

The past year has been spent over-hauling the whole game. The Redux update brings the game closer to the original vision for the game.

- Rebuilt from the ground up in game maker studio 2.
- Full pad support and rebinding.
- New derelicts, planets and a completely remade space environment.
- New enemy types.
- New weapon and inventory systems.
- More grim Epitaphs.

Totally non-biased quotes from people who've played during development:

"It's allright." - Developers nephew.
"Pretty sure I had fun." - Part time QA Tester Arpz.
"Looks like mario." - Developers mum.
420/10 wpuld epitaph again. - Dr Tester, PhD

Message from the Dev...

The game has been a labor of love over the past 4 years since I drunkenly decided to try and make a game, it's been coded and designed in my spare time, and tested by my hardcore group of friends. The aim was to make a top down shooter where you weren't constrained to loading up arena's and just fighting waves, one where you actually felt a part of the world. I hope you like it.
