A few weeks back, just a bit after PAX Prime, Seven sent me an email with the following text and an attachment:
The game is pretty damn solid, even in alpha. I lost a good weekend on this demo, so hate me later.
That attachment contained a link to the Reassembly Alpha build, and yes, I did loose a weekend. Reassembly is a phenomenal game of exploration and construction giving you an incredible amount of freedom to make just the universe exploring ship you want.
Start off as a small ship in friendly territory.
Explore a living universe.
Say, “Hello,” to your neighbors.
Gather resources, upgrade your power reserves and unlock new components.
Redesign your ship as much as you want.
Make it a bit larger and check in on the neighbors again.
Or try out other designs
Now to design a fleet.
Build some outposts.
Explore the map.
Make new friends.
That is, in a nutshell, the aim of Reassembly. It’s a game best shown off by these gorgeous screenshots, and better yet, experienced. There is a downloadable Spaceship Editor on the game’s Kickstarter page which will give you just a taste of what you can expect from Reassembly:
Reassembly has just 4 days left in their funding period. It has raised (at time of writing) $27,058, just shy of its goal of $28,000. If you’d like to help this game make its funding goal, head on over to the Kickstarter page and take a look at your options. I, personally, couldn’t resist that sweet, sweet music:
