3030 Deathwar Redux: A Unique Mix of Classic Adventure and Space Exploration (Video)

3030 Deathwar Redux is a unique mixture of old-school Adventure game and Space Combat and Trading Sim. Combining elements of classics like Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis and Frontier, you can fly around between star systems, take missions, blast pirates to smithereens, but also board stations, talk to diverse characters, use the consoles or just get a drink at the bar. There are quests to solve and derelicts to raid, races to race and bounties to chase! Now available on Steam.

The game is Open World, with many characters and side-quests, but there is also a main story line of conspiracy and treachery you can follow. Here’s our intro to the plot: “After a dead body is found by his crew, then his new ship gets impounded by the cops, something is going on… probably related to a missing freighter with a large cargo of gold bars. Now, John Falcon, a freewheeling space pilot, tries to get back on his feet. But where to start?”

Features include
•Open world space exploration and frantic combat with afterburners blazing
•Board Stations, visit the bars and talk to an array of space scum
•Ghostly Derelict Ships to find on your Star-Map, spacewalk into, and salvage valuables
•Large variety of fun Jobs and Missions, with exciting Side Quests
•Diverse ships to buy and upgrade for Performance, Defence and Combat
•Get a fuel-scoop and refuel from the corona of a sun without frying yourself!
•Find Pirate Stations & begin a life of crime, attack innocent traders, steal cargo from traffic
•Get a large cargo ship and go Asteroid Mining for metals, or haul Goods between systems
•Hidden wormhole shortcuts, Comets, Unique Stations and other secrets to find
•An intriguing Main Plot Line… and much, much more!

Reviews
“(of the 2014 re-release) It’s a heck of an undertaking and Deathwar is precisely the sort of game I often hope somebody somewhere is making – how strange to realise someone had already made it.”

About 3030 Deathwar Redux
After a dead body is found by his crew, then his new ship gets impounded by the cops, something is going on… probably related to a missing freighter with a large cargo of gold bars. Now, John Falcon, a freewheeling space pilot, tries to get back on his feet. But where to start?

* Take on some local delivery jobs and get a better ship?
* Downsize to a Jetsuit and go shooting space-junk for quick money?
* Focus on finding the missing gold shipment before the local gangs and salvage teams?
* Go punch that damn mechanic who sold you a stolen ship?
…and what is this mysterious ‘Taoist’ group you keep hearing about?

Maybe just take a break and go travelling inter-stellar, in an Open World of more than 30 star systems.

The Redux version adds: an extended adventure, with extra characters and side quests, space races, lots of graphical enhancements, balancing and gameplay changes, a smoother tutorial and tons of other improvements!
