Action-RPG Space Robinson Launches on Steam October 7th

A Lot More Alien Shooting Than The Swiss Version



Space Robinson, a blast-happy space action adventure from Luxorix Games (and published by Alawar Premium) will be coming out on Steam for the PC on Oct 7th, 9 pm PDT/Oct 8th 6 am CEST. However, if you just can’t wait for some top-down space shooting action then the open beta demo is available to everyone on Steam leading up to the release date. Luxorix Games said in a press release:

“Players will enjoy a Hardcore RPG-action on a procedurally generated planet. Collect resources, craft weapons, unlock a cute but ruthless pet-mate and then choose your way to die!”

Space Robinson places the player in the shoes of an engineer employed by the intergalactic corporation named VAST, where you’re assigned to the distant Colony 21 to perform maintenance works. Surprisingly it turns out the planet was a bit more hostile to humans than made out in your contract, forcing you o fight for survivial. Surviving Colony 21 will require collecting resources, building turrets, learning the vast wilderness and defeating endless waves of xenological beasties. The landscape is procedurally generated, so you’ll never know what to expect! You can even unlock a dog to help you on your quest! With different enemies spawning during day and night, and a rogue-lite game over system that forces you to restart your adventure upon every death, you’ll need every advantage you can get.

Luxorix advertises the following key features:

You can always choose a way to die, be it enemies, traps, or the night! Fight, level up, unlock new guns and victory will be just around the corner!

Need a gun that shoots lightning? Or need a first aid kit? It’s up to you to decide what to use in battle today! Collect resources and craft your dream loot!

Do you like to meet the sunrise, wrapped up in a blanket by the fire? Forget it! Build protective turrets to survive the harsh alien nights!

Someone has set up serious fortifications, but this isn’t an obstacle for your bots! Collect bot-assistants and destroy caches!

Start over and over again to find a way out! Explore all the locations to escape from this damned planet!

Jonathan is HeyPoorPlayer's token British person, so expect him to thoroughly exploit this by quoting Monty Python and saying things like "Pip, pip, toodly-whotsit!" for the delight of American readers. He likes artsy-fartsy games, RPGs and RPG-Hybrids (which means pretty much everything at this point). He used to write for He's also just realised how much fun it is to refer to himself in the third person like he's The Rock or something.
