Focus Home Interactive, the publishers of The Surge 2,Curse of the Dead Gods and other titles, is about to reveal their next one — a sandbox space sim called Hardspace: Shipbreaker, developed by Blackbird Interactive.
The title is literal: you’re a salvager in space, which means you break ships. Demolish derelict spacecraft piece by piece, and turn in the scraps for major cash. That’s the basics, and when the game launches in Early Access form it will indeed be basic, but more will be added on a regular basis.

Hardspace: Shipbreaker hits Steam Early Access this summer, but if you want to see more than just the trailer below, tune in to Focus Home’s Twitch page tomorrow, February 20, at 11 AM Eastern / 8 AM Pacific.

The game will be shown off at two different locations: Focus Home’s booth (#29017) and Blackbird Interactive’s booth (#28071).

Passing the Turing Test is the ultimate goal of robot builders: that is, creating an AI so advanced that an actual human cannot tell the difference. But what if, as a consequence, you could be a robot and not realize it? That’s the question indie developers Metagalaxy Panda are dramatizing
Despite being a tabletop franchise first, Vampire The Masquerade is no stranger to the world of video games. Now another one is on the way, but it’s a bit different from the two Bloodlines games that came out in recent years. Vampire The Masquerade: Bloodhunt will be free to play,
