Focus Home Interactive
has released a video and five screenshots
unveiling Space Run
, a PC game that mixes strategy and space ship construction in real time, borrowing certain mechanics from the "tower defense" system with numerous twists and hyper dynamic gameplay. Space Run is a nod to '80s science fiction and pays homage to many of its tropes and references.
You are a Space Runner, one of the space haulage contractors whose job is to transport valuable cargo from one end of the galaxy to the other. The rewards earned from your missions will enable you to unlock new modules for your ship or upgrade those you already own. Laser turrets, missile launchers, shield generators, thrusters, power plants and other modules will allow you to adapt to new combat situations in mid-flight that arise on your travels.
Developed by PASSTECH Games
, Space Run is scheduled to be available in May 2014.
