3030 Deathwar Redux - Current Plans and a Sneak Peek

Hey there Space Cowboys and -girls,

we just wanted to let you know what we're working on currently, and say thank you for all the great reviews coming in recently. It's really fantastic to see new and old players adding their voices and letting others know what's to like about 3030. These reviews are helping other players discover the game, and they also make it possible for us to keep working on the game, adding new content and new features to the 3030 universe.

So in terms of that, what are some of the things we're working on currently you ask? Well, let's see... There is going to be an updated ship buy screen, improved nebula effects, a much cooler nebula map, improved dynamic zoom effects, an improved intro, better turning jet look & placement, a cool new nebula radar (that you can see in the image above) aaand... some new outfits for Falcon! You'll be able to get a bunch of new outfits, and even can take that old hat off your noggin if you so choose.

Besides these, we'll also be further improving Mod support, this time focusing on making missions and custom quests more moddable. We've already seen some cool weapon and ship mods being made, and there are some custom quests in the making. We hope to improve the modding API for these, so it's easier for creators to set up new story lines of their own, thus adding even more depth to the 3030 world.

And finally, we also have a long running project of improving the game's combat, as some players have pointed out that you tend to resort to the same tactics each time. We'll be trying to spice things up a bit and add some variety, but these features are still very much Work In Progress, so we can't give any ETA on that yet.

Also, perhaps you've noticed already: There's a new trailer for the game, this time with a really cool Voice Over. If you want to check it out, it's the first video in the gallery above.

And our last announcement: For this year's Steam Summer Sale, we'll be discounting the game to 50%, our biggest discount yet! Our goal, as we've said before, is to get the game to 500 reviews, and we think offering such a big discount during the year's biggest sale is a good way to get there! So if there's anyone you know who would enjoy a good Space Odyssey, please spread the word!

Thanks again for all your feedback, it's what has motivated all these upcoming features, and an extra Thank You to everyone who has left a review, it's what is making these additional features and updates possible! <3

We'll be in touch again soon about the update! If you're interested in early testing and giving us direct feedback, please come join us on our Discord channel. We are always listening to what you have to say and are always happy to chat :)

3030 Deathwar Redux - Now with Trading Cards!

Hey guys,

we have an announcement for you today, and although it's no update, we think it's still pretty cool.... But first, we'd like to express a special thank you to everyone who has taken the time to leave a review for 3030. These really mean a lot to us, and have kept us motivated all along our path from Early Access to our latest big update "The Nanotech Conspiracy".

Not only do these reviews push us onward, they also mean a lot to potential new players, who regularly check reviews and make their purchasing decision based off of them. Our big goal since the Modding update is to reach 500 reviews and keep the same rating we have now. This would push us into the "Overwhelmingly Positive" category. Other small Indie devs have said this can have a big impact on how Steam treats the game. It would mean more features, better store placements, more players, and would allow us to continue working on the game. So long story short, if you like the game and have a few minutes to spare, writing a review and helping us get to that magic 500 would really mean a lot to us!

With that out of the way, our announcement today is that we're finally adding Trading Cards to the game! A lot of players have requested these on the forums, and we always said we would get them eventually. Well today, they're finally here :) If you've been playing the game already, you should retroactively be awarded any cards you would have earned, so just check your Steam Inventory to see if you got a staunch and stalwart Kent, or a slinky, stinky Frank :)

On top of this, we are running our biggest Discount yet, at 40% off! So if you've been holding off on the game because of missing Trading Cards, or if you know a friend, colleague or subreddit that would appreciate a solid Space Adventure, go ahead and let them know :D

As always, you're welcome to join us on our Discord channel, to chat and hangout:

About This Game

Rated 96% with over 10,000 copies sold

Fusing space exploration, fast-paced combat, trading, and a healthy dose of point-and-click comedic adventuring, 3030 Deathwar Redux sets you free to roam an entire war-torn galaxy filled with devastated planets, uninhabitable zones, and space stations in quarantine lockdown.

Top 30 Best Space games of all time by Steam 250's impartial Steam rankings

It's not been a good day for you. Your crew has discovered a dead body, your brand new ship's been impounded by the cops, and most people you run into seem very unhappy with you... probably something to do with that missing cargo of gold bars.

So... will you take on a couple shady delivery jobs in order to afford a better ship, or will you downsize to a cheap jetsuit and go shooting space-junk for quick money? Will you perhaps decide to focus on finding that missing gold shipment before the local gangs and salvage teams get there first?

Meanwhile, there's that damn mechanic who sold you a stolen ship, and a mysterious 'Taoist' group everyone keeps talking about. Oh, yes, you have most definitely found yourself inextricably caught up in a plot of intergalactic intrigue...

  • Open-world space adventuring with frantic combat and 30 star systems to explore.
  • Stations to board, bars to visit, scores of space scum to talk to.
  • Ghostly derelict ships to discover via your star-map, space-walk into, and salvage valuables from.
  • Large variety of intriguing jobs and missions, with exciting, and occasionally silly side-quests.
  • A diverse array of ships to buy and upgrade.
  • The once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to refuel from the corona of a sun without burning up!
  • Pirate Stations to discover, and the option of living a life of crime, piracy, cargo stealing, and nastiness.
  • The chance to invest in a large cargo ship and go asteroid mining for metals, or just haul goods between systems.
  • Hidden wormhole shortcuts, comets, unique stations, and a ton of secrets to uncover.
  • An irreverent, thoroughly amusing, and enthralling main story.
  • A whole load more!
