  • Perfect game for budding Twitch streamers

Subpixel Studios, a small team of three industry veterans, has just entered the beta stage for Slipstream: Rogue Space, a title they’ve been working on for three years. It is a multiplayer sim that puts you in charge of a spaceship crew. The game is a quirky combination of teamwork, survival, and cute animals, all battling aliens in space.

Slipstream: Rogue Space is more targeted towards Twitch streamers, which is understandable given the popularity of games like Among Us. In order to captain a ship, you must have 100+ followers on Twitch, which grants automatic captain privileges. As for the players within these spaceships, each vessel can house 120, which should be more than enough for you and your buddies.

As captains of these spaceships, you will be making a tonne of strategic decisions. Rogue Space is a very dangerous region and you’ll be tasked with a variety of responsibilities ranging from giving orders to crewmates and managing resources. Crew members move in real-time and will perform duties like launching an attack on enemies, recharging shields, and making repairs.
