The CEO of Snowhound Games, Dmytro Zhovtobryukh, thanked the player base for their support over the past four months. “We’re very thankful to all the fans of Deep Sky Derelicts, for their valuable support. We’re striving to create a very distinctive gaming experience, and happy to see it paying off so well. The player reviews we’ve seen, as well as their creative suggestions – some of which have already made it into the game – are lighting our way to what we believe will be a successful, well-accepted and popular title among true tactical game lovers“.
Deep Sky Derelicts is a turn-based strategy role-playing game infused with rogue-like elements and tactical card combat. Combat actions are decided by randomly drawn cards from a chosen deck build. Exploration consists of searching the aforementioned derelicts in search of loot and resources for upgrading gear. As is typical of rogue-likes, levels and content are procedurally generated with each new run.
