What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Early access really helps us to make a game for YOU. Your feedback is phenomenal. We are a small indie game developer and VR is an emerging gaming category where innovation is important. Having you be part of our community helps us make the game as good as possible. Our main goal is to make a game that is fun and replayable.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We're aiming to have the full version of Starship Survivor ready as soon as possible. We want to leverage the early access period to gather feedback and perfect the gameplay mechanics. Our core mission is to make the game balanced, challenging and fun first. At the same time, we want to complete our sci-fi universe and tell a story worth sharing.”

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

“The full version of the game will feature the campaign / story mode, in which the player is able to activate time jumping portals and make decisions that will impact the outcome of the game.

We also plan to add more intelligence to the game. For example, controlling certain rooms of the starship will yield specific bonuses to your character, defenses, and weapons.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“We have our basic procedural level generator completed, with weapons and towers. We completed our resource management model and allow the powering up of rooms, placing and upgrading towers.

We have our first 4 monsters in the game and are tweaking the difficulty.”

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

“All early access buyers will automatically get the full product value of the final release price. You will also get the full game on release.”

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

“The main hub for community engagement will be the Steam community. Also, please check our website and email us at with direct questions.”

About This Game

Starship Survivor is a free moving, unique strategic action shooter game with resource management, tower defense, and arcade elements.

Aboard the starship Ouroboros you wake up from cryogenic sleep. As the sole ex-Consortium crewmember, you were not injected with the test of loyalty serum. Your friends were not so lucky. The active virus in the serum mutated and transformed them into abhorrent monsters. The ship has turned against you. Your mission? Travel to the event horizon and leverage the crystal power source to go back in time to before the tragic events that killed your family.

While you were asleep, monsters consumed your ship's energy source, a crystal of legendary origin. As you wake up from cryogenic sleep, you find yourself in a ship where nothing is as you remember. Monsters will spawn in the darkness and attempt to attack you and your defenses until you manage to restore power to the entire ship.

As you navigate through the many rooms in your ship, you will unlock new weapons and defensive structures. You will be able to build & upgrade towers to help defend rooms that you have already reclaimed. As you amass more crystals, you have to continually choose between stronger weapons or building defenses.

Your decisions matter: turning the lights on too quickly, and you will get overrun, but without power, you will be left in the darkness. Your defensive structures won't work and are left to your flashlight and your keen sense of hearing when monsters creep up on you.

Starship Survivor is not a wave shooter. Each game features unique procedurally generated levels which are yours to explore. Starship Survivor is equal parts shooter and strategy. Rooms are dark, and it's up to you to restore power to the ship, build defensive structures and upgrade your weapons. The closer you are to your goal, the fiercer your opponents become. They will steal your crystals and weaken you.

Built from the ground up for virtual reality, Starship Survivor is a suspenseful shooter which will immerse you in an action-packed experience you will not forget quickly.

Cool Features:
- Big levels with free movement - NOT a wave shooter
- Gather crystals and spend them!
- Unlock various weapons and upgrade them with crystals
- Suspenseful monsters. Darkness. Hear Footsteps. Sneaking up on you or attack in groups.
- Unlock and build a variety of towers and weapons to defend the rooms you have conquered
- Time travel generates new spaceship layouts through procedural algorithms, making each game a unique challenge
- Monsters will try to destroy your defenses and reclaim rooms
