What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“NIGHTSTAR: Rogue Wings was released on Early Access as a way for the community to get involved and play an important role on the game's development. We’ve been continuously improving the game with all the invaluable feedback we are having from players. This is a handcrafted game with no procedurally generated content, so everything you see is carefully planned. Play the game, and make sure to come join the game's community page afterwards here on Steam where we discuss features, bugs, and much, much more.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We intend to have NIGHTSTAR: Rogue Wings ready for full release, with 7 complete levels, by the end of 2017. We’re still on Early Access, so some changes in direction may still occur.”

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

“The final version will feature 7 PLAYABLE LEVELS.

Here's a list of features that are planned to be available in the full version:

  • 7 complete levels with unique enemies, bosses and story line
  • Weapons and upgrades for your ship
  • Skins and color customization options (always free, no in-game purchases)
  • Dynamic missions that will change according to the player's choices
  • Steam Trading Cards and Achievements.

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“NIGHTSTAR: Rogue Wings’ Early Access version brings a solid core gameplay with working enemies, weapons, wingmen, and much more.

Here's a list of the major features available so far:

  • Single player campaign mode with 5 COMPLETE LEVELS
  • Tactical third person view AND immersive cockpit view
  • Unique target-lock system
  • Triple-A art and effects
  • State-of-the-art sound design

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

“Not for players who participate on the Early Access phase. These players will not have to pay any additional amount after the game is released. Our Early Access pricing is more attractive so that the community can engage more during this phase. Our final pricing may be higher, but not by a large margin.”

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

“The indie gaming industry is only strong because of our community, and that's how we endure. Feedback has always been a key in the development process of NIGHTSTAR: Rogue Wings. Real players’ experiences are extremely valuable in that it allows us to see the game from the players’ point of view, and then correct or change things to enhance the game and make it even better!

We are very thankful for having such an amazing community of players here on Steam! Check out our Community Forums and feel free to talk directly to the dev! Game on!”

Alpha V06 is on the way!



Hey pilots,

Alpha v06 is just around the corner! This is a major update and I'm thankful for your patience so far! This time I'm introducing the Rogue Wings' Open Universe: a living and breathing star system full of friendlies and foes, planets, moons, asteroid fields and space stations for you to explore! This is how you will now enter missions and take part as the story progresses.



A word of caution: this star system is under attack by the evil Supremacy forces, and each space lane jump might trigger an encounter! In the most dangerous areas you'll face drone squadrons, pirate ships and even Supremacy Battleships!

The new flight model is also coming together really well! This is a complete overhaul over the original Rogue Wings flight model, and it brings more responsive turning and the ability to roll with ease. Flying now is way more satisfying, as your ship will respond a lot better to your commands.



You will also notice major performance improvements. A lot of the game base code went through some serious optimization and I can now throw a lot more enemies in and increase the scale of combat considerably!

That's it for today! It's almost time to jump into the pilot's seat!

About This Game



A decade ago, the robotic forces of the Supremacy slaughtered the ones who opposed its absolute control over the Galaxy. This fateful period is known as the Division War. The few lucky survivors were enslaved or banished to the Outer Planets. Driven by their ever-growing hunger for power, the evil Supremacist fleet now travels at full speed expanding its reach to the Outer Rim. The survivors once again stand on the brink of destruction.

The bravest veterans of the Division War joined forces and created the NIGHTSTAR: a group of elite flying aces that are ready to rebel against the hunger of the machines.

The NIGHTSTAR has discovered a secret that could put an end to the conflict. Now the very fate of the galaxy lies in the hands of these fearless pilots.
