In Derelict_, control a squad of soldiers to take back a space ship from an alien infestation

Derelict_ VoiceOver - Indie DB

Walking Gif

Derelict is a squad-based real-time strategy game, requiring a sophisticated mobile defence strategy for objective success.

Loadout Evolution

The objective of the game is to get your soldiers from one side of the derelict space-ship to the other, moving from one airlock to the next. There you rest, refuel, reload and prepare to meet your opponents in the next level.

Play the role of the Commander. Reclaim the Derelict. Rescue survivors. Eradicate the Dross.


Storm the ship, recover the command center, return power to the ship!
Kill anything that gets in your way! You must reclaim the Derelict!

I like your screenshots and gifs and the setting got me so i tried it out. Some feedback: i suggest you to target PC.. and rework you control sheme. Why not mobile? The settings are dark and gritty (this is cool but it doesnt work on mobile), the time you need to complete a level it too long but most important: i think your target player group just doesn't play on mobile. My 2 cents.
One more thing: Indiegogo or Crowdfunding in general doesn't work out pretty well for games tagged as iOS/mobile. So if your campaign fails keep your motivation up and continue working on it.

We are aiming to make a mobile game that people will want to play. Even if its not similar to other mobile games. Hopefully some people will like it and appreciate they can play it on their tablets. That will make it worth while.

As for a PC release, That is a definite possibility! If we have the resources to rework everything for the computer, we definitely will do so.

While we hope our funding campaign works, we arent hinging us working based on that. We will complete this game either way!

Thank you for your comments! I hope you try the current demo, look at the videos of new stuff to come, and stay up to date with Derelict! This is why we are making this game!
Thank you!
