Strategy shooter Void Bastards looks out of this world

The studio, headed by ex-Irrational/Looking Glass developer Jon Chey, has been mostly quiet the last few years.

Your task is to lead the rag-tag Void Bastards out of the Sargasso Nebula.

Players will have to make decisions on "where to go, what to do and who to fight", while face-to-face with enemies.

System Shock's influence shines through in the sci-fi setting, but Void Bastards clearly has a style of its own - one with bright colors, thickly inked outlines, and action stamped with comic book-style sound effects. "Void Bastards" is about taking charge of your team as you plan out missions while taking your ship's layout into account as well as other ship systems and terminals you can use against the enemies that lie in wait out in space. Remaining on the ship gives you more time to find loot to build new weapons and items (including a meowing robo-kitty), or grab the food and fuel you need to keep your crew alive.

While traveling through the nebula players will come into contact with void whales, pirates, and hermits. Crafting progress carries over between runs, but you start each playthrough as a new and unique prisoner.

The game will feature a 12-15 hour campaign that you'll be able to complete with an "endless supply" of prisoner characters, which looks to add a rogue like element to the game.

Void Bastards is set to be available for both Xbox One and Windows PC (sorry PS4 users).
