Heading to Steam Early Access, Atomic Space Command is an indie spaceship simulation. Developed by No You Shut Up! Games, the ASC will primarily feature large-scale PvP skirmishes and objective-based PvE missions involving a co-op armada. Players must build and decorate their own custom ships from a selection of chassis, weapons, thrusters, and additional modules. Ace pilots won’t be able to carry the team though, as players may be inclined towards building a large ship for durability and increased utility. But then those can only be beneficial when the crew and ship systems are managed and monitored effectively. A tougher ship, with more HP, is a larger vessel with more things to maintain. As such, players need to count on teamwork to ensure they have proper dogfighting defenses as well as a strong flagship.
Atomic Space Command will support up to eight players per team, with local and online multiplayer. Far-thinking players will set up bases on planets for supplies and expansion. Powerful planet bases can contain fighter bays for a fleet of AI-controlled ships. People all want to get at the Spice Atomic resource, so constructing a Spice Atomic mine may be just the bait for attracting enemies to a properly fortified fortress. Each completed mission and arena will also net Silver Atomics – points for ship upgrades, modules, and new crew.
