Haarlem, the Netherlands, October 9, 2018 - It’s time to take control of your ship, captain. Shortest Trip to Earth enters Steam Early Access today!
Having received critical acclaim at the recent Gamescom 2018 show, Shortest Trip to Earth is a single-player game where the player explores a procedurally generated galaxy in the midst of an intergalactic war, rife with danger and secrets.
Players will meet strange life forms and exotic planets while upgrading their ship and crew. The game will feature 1000 pieces of sci-fi art, catering for every unique encounter present in the game. Combat takes place in real time and permadeath ups the ante, adding weight to every action.
Edvin Aedma, lead designer of Shortest Trip to Earth, says:
"We are extremely excited to make our project available on Steam, having been in development for five years. Like my previous title "Teleglitch", "Shortest Trip to Earth" will swiftly lead players into the hardcore survival zone. The game presents an atmospheric, rich world that rewards exploration and demands you to cope with deadly, often desperate conditions... or die in permadeath and start over. The Shortest Trip universe is harsh, and continuously chips away at hit points, resources, ammo, drones and crew, until you need to start scrapping parts of your ship to keep on going. The game is packed witty tongue-in-cheek comments and innuendo that will appeal to a mature audience."
