Objects in Space is an intriguing open-world space-stealth retro space jam from Sydney-based indie Flat Earth Games. One that has been in development for quite some time, has a very cool retro vibe, and looks to have been influenced by submarine sims in addition to space-exploration epics. There's even support for customer homemade hardware controllers.
Loving the retro-DOS vibe of the interfaces, and the stylish character models in this new trailer.
“This is a 90s-style space game but with the huge expectations of a contemporary open-world game,” said Leigh Harris, co-founder of Flat Earth Games. “It was designed around a central narrative but without a hero’s journey, so players can treat it as a sandbox and play with the game’s intricate economies or explore and find stories and characters to engage with.”
“We’ve taken the tension of submarine simulators and borrowed from them to make a space game which doesn’t require intense reflexes,” said Elissa Harris, co-founder of Flat Earth Games. “Players who want to avoid combat altogether can pay attention to pirate notices and avoid it, while those who like tense combat challenges can seek it out via bounty hunting contracts and more.”
Objects in Space is being published by 505 Games, and you can become a trader, bounty hunter, explorer, or pirate when it hits Early Access in June.
