What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Space Trash Scavenger is a game developed by two people—Al and Sarah of SquarePlay Games—and is an ambitious project. A lot of work has been put into the game and it has come a long way; however, the game still has a lot of potential and ideas that can really bring it to the next level. We want to hear feedback from players that can help us bring Space Trash Scavenger to that vision”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“The current goal is around 6-12 months, but this is really dependent on the feedback we receive and the time that the game needs. We plan to keep updating the game with new features and content, as well as continuing to polish it, for as long as it is needed to make sure that we have the best possible version of the game.”

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

“New features, More building blocks, Expanded narrative.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Currently the game is fully functional with procedurally generated sectors, fully-featured building of your Space Rig, 360-degree gravitation across asteroids and the Space Rig to allow building in any direction, a tutorial, and some minor NPCs. It also has a light automation system and full-featured crafting with the resources that you gather.”

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


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

“As we work on the game and continue its development into Early Access, the Steam forums and other platforms such as Discord and traditional social media sites will be a valuable source of feedback for us. We want to have the most direct connection to our players as possible, and so will be taking note of that feedback regularly to help inform our direction forward.”

About This Game

In the 31st century, Space Trash Scavengers roam the cosmos, risking their lives for riches amongst the debris of an ancient war.

Build your Space Rig–a 3D raft with artificial gravity, power, trash processing, farming and defense. Craft the everyday food, fuel, weapons, ammo and space suit upgrades you’ll need to survive out here in the vastness of the cosmos.

In space there is no up or down! Expand your base in any direction for the most efficient layout. Once you are equipped with the necessary fuel and a warp drive, you’ll be free to explore other sectors and continue your mission.

Circumnavigate tiny asteroids, fly between abandoned outposts, and board derelict spaceships as they orbit the system. Take caution, however, and remember to keep your jetpack fuel topped up–you’ll need it to get back to your Space Rig safe and sound!

Each salvage zone is a procedurally generated, dynamic, and ever-changing open world.

You are an employee for the galaxy’s number one waste disposal firm, stranded far away from home with a mission to clean the galaxy from the remains of a galactic war. Space trash is your main resource. Whether it is salvaged debris floating in space, advanced and rare tech from wrecked ships, or scavenged goods from asteroid surfaces, you’ll want to snatch it all up!

Recycle and refine it to produce valuable goods that will net a tidy sum on the Trash Exchange, and spend it to upgrade your kit.

You’re not alone amid the wreckage. Alien bots patrol most sectors of space nowadays and they’ll be drawn to you as your operation expands.

You’ll need a steady aim, impeccable defenses, and an upgraded armory to protect your Space Rig from the dangers of these foes. Survival depends on your ability to defend yourself!
