What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Development of Skipchaser has been an open process from the beginning. From our initial "game jam" release, to our internal beta and now Early Access we've relied on player input to build a game worth playing.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Our plan is to to do 12 rounds of early access updates--each two weeks in length. This should put our Early Access period at 6 months total. We have the funding to sustain this level of development.”

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

“The Early Access version has the basic features we want in the game, however we want to expand those features and add more content, such as:

  • Act 2 and 3 will continue the storyline
  • More missions and random variety
  • More gun and armor pieces and recipes
  • More enemy types and bosses
  • Local co-op
  • Additional dialog and cutscenes
  • Subtitle localization

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Currently, we feel the game has many hours of gameplay and is both enjoyable and (relatively) bug free.”

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

“We may gradually raise the price as we ship new content and features, but it will not be significantly more than our launch price.”

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

“Our hope is to find players who love twin stick shooters and action RPGs and suck all the feedback we can out of them.”

Thanks to Everyone for their SHIPCHASER Launch Support!

We watched some videos and streams and read some great feedback on our launch. We are listening and we're already implementing some of the "low hanging fruit" from the community suggestions. Like this variable grenade throw distance suggestion from one of our supporters.


The longer you hold the farther it goes

We've got a long way to go, but we are tracking for Update #2 to drop the first week of April!

About This Game

SKIPCHASER is a story driven sci-fi fantasy shooter with weapon customization, procedural levels and fast paced gunfights. Battle and loot your way through an abandoned mining wasteland while upgrading your gun and gear along the way.


SKIPCHASERs are a dying breed of bounty hunters that scour the universe for anyone willing to pay a contract price. Your journey begins on the planet of Paterae XI where there are plenty of scum and villains to track down.


Contracts will send you all over the planet from salted wastelands to the bowels of the element mines long since abandoned. Here you will encounter all manner of human, alien and robotic brutes, making sure to keep your trigger finger ready at all times. With procedurally generated enemies it could be hours before you encounter the same one twice.




A SKIPCHASER's best friend is his weapon, so it should be completely customizable. With thousands of possible combinations you can use the smithing system to create just the right ordnance for any enemy or situation.




Skipchasers and enemies deal damage in three different types: fire, bio and cryo. Each damage type has a counter and can be applied to guns and gear. Choosing the right gun and armor to clear out a room adds the right amount strategy to this action experience.


SKIPCHASER was born out of the 72 hour Ludum Dare 35 challenge. Our entry, the Mimic, was built on the same engine, and uses a similar graphic style and gave rise to this futuristic rogue-lite shooter.
