Developers Rockfish Games have published a countdown timer on their official website, counting down until Gamescom’s Opening Night presentation on August 19th at 7pm BST. The countdown timer is for their latest game: an open-world RPG space shooter set in the Everspace universe.
On the official website, the developers state that after producing the roguelike Everspace, one thing became clear: the fans wanted a game that was more persistent. Well, Rockfish look like they’re going to deliver, as they say:
Even though many fans liked our innovative concept of combining fast-paced space combat with rogue-like elements and exciting storytelling set in a colorful science fiction world, many space game enthusiasts are longing for an open-world space shooter with classic RPG elements in the iconic vibrant audiovisual style and the intense action gameplay of Everspace. Well, we got good news: You will be able to explore a vivid open world featuring persistent progression in our new space game.
The new game promises “wacky aliens over mysterious space anomalies” and other potential discoveries, along with the ever present and desirable loot. We’ll find out more on August 19th. Are you excited? Sound off in the comments.
