Captain on deck!

A lot has changed since you were away. Now that the Summer Sale is over and new games have been played to shreds, it´s time to give old favorites some love too.

If you missed our last update due to Summer Sale madness, here is an overview of Voidfarer Traditions update.

New content
  • 25% more content to explore overall.
  • Encounter new events, longer dialogues with multiple choices to make.
  • New anomaly sector in system map - a high risk and high reward area with unique enemies. Learn their weaknesses and battle a mighty foe.
  • 6 new modules - 2 of them unlockable within unique events. 5 of them featuring completely new game mechanics, like tractor beams and teleportation.
  • Major overhaul to the traditions system - the number of traditions has nearly doubled. Traditions come with added effects on gameplay, making the choices even more important. Through these choices, you tell the story of your Voidfarers.
  • More interactions and things to buy at friendly starbases.



Quality of life improvements
  • Ability to return to friendly starbase you´ve already visited.
  • New settings for camera rotation, screenshake and screenflash disabling.
  • Build menu shows more stats for modules and the entire ship:
    - ship speed stats - compare how maneuverable one design is compared to another.
    - module stats are reworked and calculate appropriate firepower for all modules.
    - module range, turning power and area damage range info. - items over budget more visible.
  • Resources pop-up while going into battle removed.

    We also fixed a bunch of bugs and tiny annoyances. Save games are not compatible with previous versions of the game. Start fresh and craft a new journey for your people. You can still use old saves by rolling back to an older version under ´betas´ in Steam.

    As always, if you encounter any bugs or have any questions or suggestions, submit them via Steam discussions or join the game's Discord [discordapp.com].

    Thanks for playing Voidship: The Long Journey!

“It manages to scratch that FTL itch while still feeling unique and its particularly enjoyable upgrading your ship with new modules then testing it out in battle. Highly recommended.”

“I love the way you can actually build your own ship and I´m a big sucker for that random world FTL-ness of it all.”

SHIPBUILDING


A wide selection of modules gives you near countless ways to design your ship. Large dreadnaught class ships may be powerful, but become very slow and especially vulnerable in ion nebulas. A speedy spaceship can kite the enemy and evade most weapons.

STRATEGY


The enemies in your path are quite challenging. You can pause the game and identify the weakest points of each enemy. Concentrate your weapons on a specific module to take out the engines, weapons or repair stations to weaken your enemy. Learn from your mistakes and add countermeasures to your ship to have a better outcome in the next battle.

EXPLORATION


Different factions inhabit different star systems. Based on the design of your ship you can choose to avoid the enemies you aren´t prepared for. Space travel takes time and traveling from one star system to another may take decades. Over time your crew will age, mature and reveal their needs and thoughts.
