About This Game


As a mercenary, you'll get to decide for which faction(s) you're willing to fight. Your actions will have consequences, so choose wisely!

The Earth Military Conglomerate: the Earth's military faction. They usually have big guns and tend to use ballistic-based weapons when in combat.

The Void Outlaws: the renegade faction in space. They use weird tactics in combat with a wide variety of weapons, depending on what they might have stolen.

The Quantum Riders: the cult of scientists focusing on new technology. They usually have high-end energy weapons and shields at their disposal.


You'll get to play up to 12 different story missions in a single run, but there are 3 different paths you can take from the beginning to discover all of the 22 handcrafted story missions!


Between two story missions, you'll be able to grind for money or reputation by doing procedurally-generated contracts for the factions you wanna play with.


There are up to 7 different mission types in the game, and you'll get to unlock them all the more you progress through the storyline.

  • The Elimination missions: go through some waves on enemies until you reach the priority target and hunt it down!
  • The Collect missions: fight waves of enemies until you gather enough of the requested component from their scrap!
  • The Escort missions: help an allied and defenseless unit to go through a space sector by destroying any enemy target in front of you!
  • The Warfare missions: get involved in a conflict between two factions and get some reinforcement from the faction that requested some help!
  • The Rush missions: assault an enemy faction's position and go through their defenses while destroying all of their units!
  • The Survival missions: fight enemy waves for a set time, and decide if you want to continue and earn more rewards by destroying more of them!
  • The Mayhem missions: target a fleet concentrating numerous elite enemies and take them all down!


Even if the story missions' difficulty is set and cannot be changed, you'll be able to play the procedurally-generated contract missions based on their difficulty. The more difficult they are, the higher the risks and rewards will be!

Having trouble with higher difficulties? Maybe it's time to grind lower-difficulty contracts to get some new gear and upgrades!


You'll start to play with the default Firestorm machine gun unlocked, and then be able to expand your arsenal with gifted or purchased weapons!


Starting without any mod, you'll be able to get new perks by unlocking and selecting new mods! From a passive energy shield to an active E.M.P. system, test and decide what mod works best for you!


Who said you cannot be classy in space? You can decide on your spaceship's colors using 18 different colors, on two layers (primary and secondary). Plus, you can also decide what the color of your thruster's exhaust is!


In addition to the customization, you'll be able to constantly improve your spaceship by getting new upgrades until you get them all! Plan to unlock the most relevant ones for your playstyle first and dominate your enemies!


All of the in-game assets are hand-made with pixel art by myself, hope you'll enjoy them!


We teamed up with the very talented Scott Hsu who made this incredible OST for Escape Space!
