Redout: Space Assault gameplay pre-alpha video!

Redout: Space Assault page has been updated with our new pre-alpha gameplay video and a few screenshots of the current stage of the project. There’s still a lot to do and listening to your feedback about the multiplayer focus has been of great help for us.

Space Assault has now a lot more content on the single-player campaign and the arcade feel of the game greatly improved in the last couple of months. You can watch the video on its Steam page or on our Youtube channel: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kTca9fM95vU
Also, we finally created the official Discord server for the game. Join now to discuss the game with us! https://discord.gg/bCR52s4

Mars or Die! gets amazing free content!

A total of 669 changes between V1.1.2 and V1.2

The Supreme Leader was downhearted with the reception of its propaganda. After eating an unhealthy dose of chocolate, he called for a Great Warfare Maneuver to shake things up. After many fervent weeks of work, we are now ready to present the New Great Plan for conquering Mars! Of course, we will need to re-establish communications with our Explorers first...

To stop aliens from chewing on your defences, you’ve got to… give them something else to chew on first! These Titanium barricades with an integrated Energy Field can withstand terrifying amounts of punishment, allowing your turrets do their job.

Get rid of those pesky swarms from a distance! The Mortar Turret drops shells dealing AoE damage. Its long range also allows to counter aliens shooting from afar. A must-have gadget for every interplanetary army!

When it comes to hand-to-hand combat, every second counts. This revolutionary installation fires a strong audiovisual shockwave that overloads alien senses, dealing moderate area damage but especially stunning them for a few precious moments.

A new Structures Upgrade System allows you to spend your Resources to strengthen your Turrets individually, up to level 10! From today, we won’t depend on crate-box supplies only!

These strange, short creatures look like they just left Thanksgiving dinner. Problem is, they are basically mobile buckets of explosive chemicals. And, they run like stink!

An extremely dangerous specimen shooting extremely long-range bullets with precision. Good Mortars can take care of them: otherwise, our Explorers will need to take them on personally!

These obnoxious creatures can drop anywhere on the battlefield. Usually, they tend to drop behind our defence lines. This is most unfortunate, especially because they are aggressive and tough!

There is a strange… mutation going on: we identified 4 new alien evolutions, considerably stronger and faster than the previous one. This new 9-missions Campaign will take you to the deep recesses of the Red Planet, to find out what is the source of this formidable threat. We will need every bit of our new military technology to survive the Infection!

In case you need an even harder challenge, both the Conqvest and Liberation campaign can be played at Hardcore difficulty.

Thanks to a more efficient extraction process, Crystal pools can be mined for longer. Also, once a pool is depleted, it will continue to grant bits and pieces of Crystals indefinitely: the income will be much lower, but this will grant more time to transfer your base to a more Hawaiian location.
We also found out that Aliens love Crystals as snacks, so they always carry some. Meaning, we get free Resources for each Alien we KO!

They can now be researched on the spot. Just make sure a Research Center is up and running, find a Crate and pick it up. It will be automatically transferred to your base and applied!

We realigned and optimized propellers, so Explorers can now turn while Boosting. Exploring Mars is a breeze! Wheeeeeee!

Bean’s Shield is no longer damaged by alien projectiles. Bean can also bash enemies by boosting onto them while Shields are up. Show off your skills!

The last placed structure is automatically selected on reopening the Build Menu, making it faster to build a line of defence..
A better alignment between crosshair and bullets makes shooting smoother.
Enemy Health UI is now visible (can be turned off).
Remaining wave duration time is now displayed.
Minimap review: it now displays only Crate Boxes in proximity.

Companion automatically tries to reach an O2 tank when oxygen is low.
Companion always comes when called (removed minimum radius for the Follow command).

Reviewed classic campaign structure, duration and goals to adapt for new content.
Reviewed and recalibrated Endless mode difficulty to adapt for new content.

If you are *still* reading, phew! That was a lot to cover. We have read some legitimate, constructive criticism after launching the game and worked hard to give you a deeper experience, more content, more strategic variety and challenges.
There is much more we would have loved to do (but couldn't, due to time constraints) but for now do let us know what you appreciate, what still needs work, and what you'd love to see in the game.
Mars, or Die!

“Hyperdrive Massacre understands what it is, and plays to its strength of frenetic multiplayer action to perfection.”
80 – CogConnected

“A prime slice of local-multiplayer gaming that offers both co-operative and competitive action that is balanced, consistent and most importantly of all, hugely entertaining.”
80 – GamesPew

“Hyperdrive Massacre is exactly what it says on the tin; a super fast game that gives the player the ability to continually destroy their friends in a variety of game modes over and over again.”
80 – The Xbox Hub

Controller Required!

Hyperdrive Massacre was designed from the ground up for the controller and requires a controller to play.
