Introducing "Endless Mode" in Deep Sixed 1.20

Hello everybody,

Two months have passed since the release of Deep Sixed, and during that time we have released many small updates with bugfixes, usability improvements and new features.
With the latest update (1.20) we bring you a new game mode that many people have requested. The "Endless Challenge" mode is a game without the main story line and without an ending. The gameplay is stripped to the basics and there are no story missions or cut-scenes. You explore the nebula, complete missions, upgrade your ship and try to survive as long as possible while the game gets increasingly harder.
This mode is for experienced players only - those who want a real challenge. It doesn't end until you die, and when the game is over you get a score based on the reputation points you have earned in your playthrough.

We hope you like the new game mode and all the other little improvements we have added. Check this forum topic for a detailed list of changes.

Thanks again for all your support and the amazing feedback!

Deep Sixed 1.10

Hi everybody,
we have been working hard to improve the game and fix all the glitches, typos, bugs and inconsistencies you have reported. Your feedback has been amazing and we're delighted that you enjoy Deep Sixed and that our game is getting so much love from players.

We've uploaded many updates over the last few days and we're now at version 1.10. Here are some of the most important fixes and changes since the release:
  • Some of the early "find and retrieve" and "find and kill" missions have been re-balanced to be less frustrating.

  • Some of the maintenance tasks have been rebalanced.

  • Permadeath is now disabled in Easy Mode. That means you can continue from the last save point when you die.

  • Many small glitches and a few serious bugs have been fixed.

  • Problems with the Mac version have been fixed.
These days it's hard to get noticed among the dozens of games that are released on Steam every day - but the overwhelmingly positive feedback we're getting keeps us motivated.
If you enjoy Deeps Sixed, please consider leaving us a review on Steam and help us spread the word.

“If you’re a Trek fan, sci-fi fan, a fan of roguelikes, a fan of simulators, or a fan of difficult games, Deep Sixed is a no-brainer.”
Lou's Reviews

“I’m having a good time so far, and will definitely be playing more of Deep Sixed as time allows. It’s quite unlike any space sim I’ve ever played, and that’s interesting enough in itself.”
Rock Paper Shotgun

“What we have is a thoroughly enjoyable experience, full of radiation, hostile space creatures and a whole lot of broken junk to deal with.”

About This Game

We're not alone here.

A secretive corporation that holds a monopoly on the technology necessary to "fold space", travelling light-years in mere moments, has shown an obsessive interest in a large uncharted nebula in a distant arm of the galaxy.

The Pilot is working off the remainder of her sentence as an involuntary stellar cartographer for this corporation. She has been issued a small spacecraft that is equipped with a finicky deep space scanner and the support of an infantile Artificial Intelligence unit, and given orders to map as much as possible and report back with her findings.

What she discovers out there will change her life forever, if she can get back home in one piece.


  • Life without an "undo" button. Your ship stays with you from start to finish. If something breaks, it'll stay broken until you figure out how to fix it.
  • A universe of procedurally generated mysteries for the ambitious explorer.
  • A diverse ecosystem of intergalactic fauna with their own predator, prey and scavenger roles to play.
  • A steep difficulty-curve that will push your ability to stay calm under pressure to the limits.
  • A compelling story of friendship and compassion that promises to surprise and entertain.
