Death to the permadeath & patch 0.31.11

Posted by Erhune 7 months ago

Death to the permadeath!

Gangs of Space has been designed from the beginning to be a permadeath game (even before we introduced the “roguelite” elements like subsystems; our inspiration is taken mostly from old arcade games).

Even though we - and many players - like it this way, it is true that losing a ship can be a demoralizing experience for a new player. So today, we’re introducing a permadeath protection designed to help beginners without changing the fundamental high-level game for experienced players.

From now on, newly built ships will be equipped by default with a new passive item: the Auto-Warp. This item warps you back automatically to the Motherbase when you would have taken a fatal hit, but it comes with a few drawbacks:

  • since it is a passive item, you cannot equip another item that would have given you nice passive bonuses;
  • it lowers all Sector Points (SP) and Credit gains by 25%;
  • it prevents you from warping to T5 or T6 systems.

Auto-Warp

You can remove this item at any time (and we encourage experienced players to do so!), but it will be destroyed in the process.

New base skins

To add some visual variety, all ships are now created randomly with one out of 3 base colors.

Of course you can still customize your ship at any time (for free) in the Skin Shop.

10 new music tracks!

Alex, the composer of the soundtrack of Gangs of Space, has been touched by all your positive feedback about his compositions. So he has graced us with 10 more tracks, which triples the amount of music we now have in the game!

You can discover these new tracks everywhere, from an alternative Motherbase ambiance to different music for all 6 tiers, and even some music on the death screen! (another good reason to un-equip your Auto-Warp!)

Patch 0.31.11

As usual, all the details of the patch are available in the changelog.

A wiki full of treasures

Thanks to a growing team of motivated players, the Gangs of Space Wiki is now full of useful information:

wiki.gangsofspace.com

Items, ships, subsystems, drops, enemies… all there, ready for your eyes!

There is still a lot of translation work though, so if you speak another language like Spanish, Russian, Chinese, German, Portuguese… then join the Wiki team on Discord! You will be more than welcome!
