  • Fixed a bug that made the derelict cruiser missions too easy.
  • Fixed several spelling mistakes in the dialogue.
  • Removed escape and life pods from spawning in several levels they did not belong in.
  • Fixed a mouse scrolling bug.
  • Slightly reduced the accuracy of Shredder Cannons.
  • Fixed a cutscene issue.

    And that is all for now. Thank you for testing the game.

Greetings Commanders. Thank you so much to everyone that has tried out the game and provided us feedback. This is really helpful and we really appreciate it. Together we will make this the best game it can be.

Today's patch address some of the themes we have been seeing:

  • Fixed a bug where the final story mission couldn't be completed.
  • Fixed a bug on the Heartless mission where you could fly into the asteroid base.
  • Slowed down the dialogue so it was easier to read.
  • Fixed a loading bug related to certain equipment.

And that is all for now. Thank you for playing our games.

A new chapter in the world of Ancient Frontier!

Steel Shadows is a standalone RPG set in the epic universe of Ancient Frontier. You do NOT need to own or have played Ancient Frontier to enjoy this content. Take command of a rag tag band of pirates and outlaws as you fight your way across the Frontier for treasure and glory. Delve into our latest turn based tactical RPG.

You play as Rogan Harker, a recently freed convict. He travels to the Frontier to find old friends and start a new life. But the overpowering Federation still controls most of the Frontier, and the new and budding Alliance is no fan of outlaws. Hated and feared, the pirate life is one of constant danger. Friends and allies are hard to find and harder still to keep. Beset on all sides can Rogan find fame and fortune with his fledgling pirate fleet?

  • A full campaign with over 20 story missions
  • Over 50 procedurally generated side missions
  • Dynamic initiative-based turn-based combat
  • Purchase, outfit and control the unique Pirate faction ships
  • Hire and assign crew members that gain experience and power along with your ships
  • Hidden unique mercenaries and ships to add to your fleet
  • Experience over 50 random events
  • Customize your play style by unlocking technologies in an extensive Tech Tree
  • Large, detailed space maps to fight across
  • Three different strategic resources to manage
  • Dozens of different weapon systems and abilities to control
  • Includes both free DLCs; Ancient Frontier - The Crew and Ancient Frontier - Quests and Events

Will you survive the frontier?
