Dean Hall’s Stationeers spacewalks into early access

I want to be the type of person who plays and enjoys Stationeers, the Space Station 13-inspired construction and management game from Day Z creator Dean Hall's studio Rocketwerkz. Unfortunately, I am the type of person who initially gets excited at the prospect of managing complex interlocking systems, then finds it all too much and scampers back to Overwatch. That won't stop me trying mind,…

DayZ creator’s space game Ion has been cancelled

Ion, a simulation-heavy space game inspired by role-playing adventure Space Station 13 and announced by Dean Hall back at E3 in 2015 has been cancelled, reports Eurogamer. A sad day for fans of dying from a lack of oxygen in a floating metal cylinder, but perhaps not surprising given the ambition behind the game. “I want a game that is not a game," Hall had…

Barotrauma is a Space Station 13-y co-op sub game

Grab some pals, crowd into a submarine, and dive into an alien sea to die horribly inside a simulation inspired by Space Station 13. That's emergent sim-o-RPG Barotrauma [official site], which is currently available free in open alpha as developers Undertow Games work towards the full release. Delving into the icy waters of Europa, one of Jupiter's moons, different player classes with different responsibilities must…

Evac Shuttle: Space Station 13 Remake Open-Sourced

Space Station 13 sits high on my list of Favourite Games I've Never Actually Played. When chums started talking about their space station adventures - mixing toxic drinks in the bar, turning people into clowns as a space-wizard, amputating crewmates' bottoms to turn into autonomous cyborgs - I assumed they were talking about a pen & paper RPG. Nope. It's a mystifyingly complex multiplayer sandbox,…

Space Station Titanic: Centration

As I pressed the gleaming red button that launches the Kickstarter Katchup onto the internet, the sound of screaming klaxons and crunching gears echoed around my apartment. It was past midnight and the Publish-o-tron 5000's precise machinery had triggered an automated warning, informing everybody in a four mile radius that one project in particular deserved to see the light of day. For those who may…

Lucky For Some: Space Station 13 Remake

Like rumbling, fume-farting modes of public transport, space station catastrophe simulators keep a man waiting for ages and then two arrive at the same time. I've never actually met anyone who admires Space Station 13's tile-based terrorism and farce quite as much as I do, but I was pleased to hear that Dean Hall is a devotee. That makes sense. There's a clear throughline from…

Galactic Bartender Episode 2: Last Orders

The more time I spend with Space Station 13 the more impressed I am, but I'll save that for a round-up post at a later date. For now, here's another abstract update on my progress. If you missed it, Episode 1 can be found here. This is the adventures of Galactic Bartender Gengy Patel. Barman’s log, stardate 40263.1. Dunno where to begin. I'm recording this…

Space Station 13: Galactic Bartender Ep. 1

I've started investigating Space Station 13, a sci-fi multiplayer sandbox with the same utterly batshit more-is-more design as Dwarf Fortress. It uses Byond, and with that installed you can get SS13 here. The comprehensive Something Awful goon wiki can be read here and there's a big map of the station here. The game lets you pick your job on the crew each game, but I've…
