Important Announcement (tm)

Dear Fans,

After thorough analysis of player feedback, we've decided to make several big changes to Das Geisterschiff to make sure our game remains fun and accessible to the widest possible audience.

Reworked Combat
Instead of a boring, 'what-is-this-1945?' turn-based combat system, Das Geisterschiff will adopt two-step tango combat from true dungeon crawling classics that nobody played.

Color Options
The bloody orange color palette received mixed reception and a color change option has been requested for many weeks.

We are adding the following options to the game:
Colors
Description
Red & Black
Virtual Boy-style palette for old school gamers.
Black & Red
Reversed Virtual Boy-style palette for old school gamers.
Pink & Cyan
Retrowave-style palette for connoisseurs.
Shades of Pink
Fabulous palette for fabulous players.

Achievements
According to the feedback, a game without achievements is worthless in 2019.

We've spent months coming up with good and meaningful achievements one can wear like a badge of pride. Take a look:
Name
Description
Impatient
Skip the tutorial.
Reading is Hard
Die during the tutorial.
No Pain No Gain
Die 1000 times.
Left a Large Crater
Fall into a pit 10 times.
More Balls Than Brains
Waste all ammo during the mission.
I'm not cheating, honest!
Beat the Tunnels map in less that 10 minutes.
I said I'm not cheating!
Beat the game without dying.
True Professional
Beat the game without killing critters.

Microtransactions
We've decided to introduce minor microtransactions to let struggling players finish the game.

Here's the list of options currently under consideration:
Name
Price
Light Armor Plate
$0.24
Medium Armor Plate
$0.49
Heavy Armor Plate
$0.74
Weapon Magazine
$0.49
10 Save Points
$0.99
Access to Full Map
$0.99
Quest Marker
$0.99

If you're worrying about predatory and anti-consumer practices, you can relax -- there will be NO changes to the difficulty.

We're very excited about these changes and can't wait to hear your thoughts.

Happy April Fools!

About This Game

Das Geisterschiff is a turn-based cyberpunk adventure/dungeon crawler hybrid with survival horror elements where you play as a mecha pilot working for one of the megacorps.

By 2072 the Earth turned into a scorched wasteland, forcing the population to move underground while two megacorps are stuck in an endless war over the territory and resources. After graduating from the military academy you've decided to join one of them.

Key Features
  • Non-linear dungeons filled with dangerous encounters, traps and puzzles;
  • Survival horror on steroids: no healing, no ammo pickups, no mercy;
  • Nuanced turn-based combat within dungeons;
  • Unique wireframe-like graphics supported by atmospheric electronic soundtrack.
