What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We have been working on Gangs of Space since 2012. Over these 5 years, we have released 30 alpha versions of the game to the public, and used the community feedback to shape the game as it exists now.

We are releasing Gangs of Space on Steam Early Access to:
  • gather more feedback, especially when playing with a great number of players
  • bring more competition to the seasonal ladders
  • find and fix server scaling issues

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We expect around 6 months of Early Access.”

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

  • more game content (playable ships, enemies...)
  • Steam achievements and cards
  • bug fixes and usability improvements

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The current Early Access version is complete feature-wise, and fully playable on all supported platforms, including playing along with hundreds of other players.

There might be some performance issues on the server side when we reach thousands of simultaneous players, but we have all measures in place to quickly fix any problem that might occur in this case.”

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

“Right now, we don't have plans to change the price of the packs for release.

Some content of these packs will be exclusive for Early Access buyers though:
  • Early Access exclusive skins
  • the possibility to name game content (crews, sectors and systems)
  • the Shares in the Shark Investor Pack

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

“We have been developing Gangs of Space using a lot of feedback from our community since 2012, and have already released 30 alpha versions to the public.

We discuss the game on our forums, on our official Discord channel, on our Twitter @GangsOfSpace, during live devsteams on Twitch, and by direct e-mail: contact@gangsofspace.com goes straight to the inbox of everyone in the dev team!”

About This Game

Gangs of Space is an indie Rogue Shmup MMO developed with love by Grouroux and Erhune.

Shmup




Part-Shmup, part-Hack'n Slash.

Your skill will be your important asset in order to avoid the myriad of enemy bullets. In addition, chosing the right abilities and equipment for your ship will transform you in a formidable space perdator.

But get your tissues ready: here, every death is permanent!

Roguelike RPG




Chose a ship among multiple classes, and level it over 10 quick levels. Create a unique build and optimize it by looting equipment from the fuming wrecks of your enemies.

Over time, you will complete class objectives and unlock new build choices that will enhance the possibilities of your next ships.

MMO conquest




The goal of Gangs of Space is simple: conquer the Galaxy in the name of the Empire! Whether you go solo-hunting or gather a squad of talented Gang-mates, the only important thing is that: conquer more and more sectors.

When the Galaxy is fully conquered, players and Gangs receive rewards based on their rank in various ladders. A new conquest campaign then starts, in a new unknown Galaxy.
