What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“What we already have is well polished and has a well defined design, but we need more time to make the rest of the game. We feel that the current version clearly shows what the game will look like, but we also want to put it in players' hands, too see how they react and play.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“The game will be in Early Access for around 5 months.”

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

“We plan to have more Races/Ships, Cards, Events, "units" (including enemies) and bosses. In addition, we also have plans to make Events and player's "Traits" (called Reputation) more interesting.

We also plan to release the game in more languages.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Currently the game has one Race/Ship (Dwarves), 70+ cards, 34+ units (10+ enemies) and a Boss. In addition, we have 42+ Reputations that define and show the trajectory of your Character, 32+ Events, some Stores and Factions.

The game is also in a polished state and with few bugs.”

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

“Yes, we plan to increase the price of the game at launch. We will not change the price during Early Access.”

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

“We have a very clear vision of what we want the game to be, but within that vision there is still room for player input. We will look closely at how people play and this will influence the design of the game, whether it's creating cards, events or new enemies.

We are going to set up a specific subforum on Steam forums, so if you want to give your opinion about something in the game, the ideal place is there.
We will also watch Streams of the game on platforms like Twitch and YouTube.”

About This Game


The means of productions of fuels and beverages of the Federation was robbed!
Without it, the economy of this galaxy is going down the drain!
Calling all cadets -Dwarves, Humans, Orks and Elves- to a search and rescue operation!

Build your deck while exploring the Cosmos, choose from a handful of Maneuver and Equipment cards!



Develop your combat skills, make a chain of combos!
Plan ahead and make your turns never end. Get into a frenzy that recharges your batteries when you defeat a wave of enemies.
You might even resort to using your whole ship as a weapon!



The deck building aspect starts at character creation: Each new run allows countless strategy possibilities!
Choosing what’s your starting reputation can be as important as your choice of cards.



What’s your Reputation?

  • Are you a fast learner, a Proud Genius?
  • Business comes easy for you, maybe a Born Seller?
  • Are you a gifted pilot, something like a Naive Prodigy?

Keep in mind Reputations aren’t permanent and passive of change through events in your journey.



Your response to events influences your reputation and deck: Karma will be generated during your interactions.
Say you respond in a blessed way… you’ll get blessed Karma and reputation!
You rather be a badass? Guts Karma is out there somewhere in the Cosmos!


Buy authorized equipment from the Guild or not-so-official ones from the Pirates.
Smuggled equip cards travels around the galaxy and you could end up as a mule...
You might be able to steal cards if your reputation of Thief turns up, but be aware:
Your chances of being caught are defined by your Karma!


Destroy enemies and recover resources that can be exchanged for various supplies - or use it as ammunition!


  • One playable Race/Ship: the Dwarven Hammer.
  • 70+ cards in total.
  • 34+ Unique units, 10+ Enemies.
  • One dragon Boss.
  • 42+ Reputations (traits) that mark your Character's journey.
  • 32+ Events, some Store types and Factions.
  • Art and writing inspired by Animes of the 80's-90's.


  • More Races/Ships, each with their quirks.
  • More cards of all types.
  • More Enemies, Units and Bosses.
  • More work on Events and Traits.
  • Improvements to the UI and game in general.
  • Even more 80's/90's anime attitude!
