Reviews

“I like the plinky planging sounds when you fire big metal spears into the robots, and the saw blades and strange tentacular missile thing.”
Rock Paper Shotgun

“One thing that bothers me is that the ship propulsion jets look like glowing plastic things glued to the ship [...] Other than that, it looks really good and it seems to get better with every update.”
Teleglitch dev on TIGSource (2017, Alpha stage)

About This Game

Savage Vessels is a rogue-like top-down shooter with pixel-art, physics and hard survival.



Within fields of asteroids and fragmented freighters you scavenge and fight against drone vessels while a strange void surrounds you making your escape difficult.

You are a scavenger fortunate enough to have managed to acquire an automated carrier and a one-man destroyer. Without warning your ragtag fleet dropped out of hyperspace into this threatening region where somehow it is merging with real space. Apparently a freak accident occurred. A freighter fleet, traversing hyperspace, has been disassembled by a mysterious force and then rematerialized in real space merging with asteroids. The attendant drone vessels survived this incident but are out of control. Seemingly they are still following their primary directive, protection of the property of their owner: the Taiko Mining Corporation.

In order to escape you must triangulate your location repeatedly. It is rather simple: leave the carrier, check navpoints, land again and move on. But the drones will not let you. So by necessity arm yourself against them by scavenging and crafting materials.

Savage Vessels is a spiritual successor to Teleglitch. The levels consist of handmade regions which are procedurally combined and populated with enemies and items. Your view is obstructed and your ears constantly alert you to danger. You must deal with permadeath and some levels can be unlocked as entry levels as headstarts into each run.
