The sequel to the STEAM chart-topping title, Bomber Crew moves the theatre of war from World War Two to the far-flung future with players challenged to fight a conflict on an intergalactic scale. Armed with their own carefully chosen crew and fully customisable spaceship, captains must protect Earth and venture across the galaxy to stave off a new alien threat known as the Phasmids. Check out the launch trailer here: 

“We’re beyond excited that Space Crew is releasing today, to boldly take players past the final frontier and into a galactic land of adventure,” says Jon Wingrove, co-founder of Runner Duck Games.  “With this sequel to Bomber Crew, we took inspiration from some of our favorite sci-fi stories and tropes and we’re thrilled about all the support we have received so far from the community. As a small team of three people, seeing the excitement coming from players across the world as they start playing is a genuine tonic.”

Space Crew is as varied as it is challenging, with aspiring captains having to manage their crew members one-by-one during missions to ensure objectives with ‘minimal’ casualties. Phasmid attacks, black holes, falling oxygen levels, incursions from other-worldly organisms, system failures and more are just some of the challenges crews will have to face head-on, with the AI always ready to chuck something dastardly into the mix. 

Space Crew is available now for PC and consoles, priced at £17.99 / €19.99 / $19.99, with a limited time 20% off discount applied to all platforms so be sure to head to your platform storefront of choice.
