Starship Rubicon

Released on July 13, 2015 by Wickworks

Developed by Wickworks

Starship Rubicon is a modern take on the classic space shooter genre. It's a smart and challenging rogue-lite that features a unique control scheme, pixel art remixed with NASA photographs, and an existential crisis about who is REALLY the monster.

Last week we dropped the Greenlight for Starship Rubicon and we appreciate everyone checking it out. We wanted to get out a few videos showing off the game and are now releasing the all new gameplay trailer you can watch above. The gameplay trailer shows off the games randomized universe, ships, customization and even more gameplay! We are working hard to get the game out by years end so stay tuned and if you haven’t already, check us out on Steam Greenlight.

You can also pre-order Starship Rubicon too

After spending the last few months polishing Starship Rubicon we are extremely excited to debut the game on Steam Greenlight. Wick and I are both huge Steam fans and as such if you would like to see Rubicon on Steam, we’d appreciate an upvote. We are also using the Greenlight to debut our new Rubicon Reveal Trailer featuring new gameplay footage!

So take a minute to head over to our Steam Greenlight page, give us an upvote and check out the new trailer and gameplay screenshots!

I was also really excited to see people responding well to the build of the game we had to show. After the first few people ran into a steep difficulty wall, Wick balanced the game and everyone that came afterward had a bit easier go of things. Some people did very well, some... Read All
A few months ago I posted that Cheerful Ghost was publishing it’s first game and today I am happy to introduce you to Starship Rubicon!

Starship Rubicon is a space shoot-em up that modernizes the physics and mechanics of Asteroids combined with the ship modification and roguelike elements of FTL.

In Starship Rubicon, Earth has been casually destroyed by a mysterious race of space-faring invertebrates. You are a fighter pilot whose cryopod has been collected by a possibly-insane AI, who has placed you in the unenviable position of being humanity’s savior.
