Hyperspace Delivery Service
A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, Linux, and Android
**Please check out the Steam Early Access Release!
Note that the price for this itch.io version reflects the fact that you get the Android version as well as the PC version. It may be the same game but the dev time is not negligible to deal with a second platform.
You’ve been hired by the Hyperspace Delivery Service to make a delivery to planet Miridian V.
Located on the other side of explored space, the trip to Miridian V will be a dangerous yet lucrative journey full of mad robots and unpredictable stellar phenomenon.
Can you and your crew survive the trip? Will you die from the dreaded Telunian flu? Hyperspace Delivery Service offers an exciting and strategically challenging journey where you must manage your fuel, oxygen, food, and various other supplies to make your delivery within the target time.
Choose what kind of captain you will be. Work the trade routes, learn to use your crews’ unique attributes, mine for fuel, search for abandoned supplies, fight robot space pirates on the ground in retro FPS, experience thrilling space battles from the bridge of your space ship in retro 3D space shooting action.
Can you make it to Miridian V? See you on the next delivery!
Game is in active development and in a fully playable early access state!! Hyperspace Delivery Service will be available on steam (and itch.io) for Windows, Mac, and Linux upon release. For now, I will release platforms as they are ready starting with Windows.
