    • LOTR by its atmosphere of high adventure
    • GTA by its criminal background and freedom of choice inside the game
    • NFS by its energy and gameplay dynamics, and ability to customize the vehicle
    And all of them together, in the deepest reaches of space.

    Skyjacker is a first-person free-roaming space combat game with unique features rarely - or never - seen in other space games to date.
    • Travel from the surface of a planet to the tunnels and bays of orbital space stations, with no transitions or cuts in between.
    • Bump space hulks and asteroids into collision courses with your enemies and watch the pretty fireworks.
    • Disable and destroy component parts of a ship. Cargo ship's getting away? Slow it down with some neighborly torpedoes to the engine.
    • Salvage the parts you didn't destroy and mount them on your own ship. Add insult to injury - rip enemies apart with their own guns!
    • Swap out engine parts to change the behavior of your ship - play it like an arcade game, like a classic space game, or with full inertia and momentum.
    • And all this in professional graphics and gameplay.


    Don't think that because the basic backer cost with the game (minus any expacs) is only £10 that this game has no talent behind it.
    The most noticable thing in almost all games is the sound. I'm sure many of you have played either The Witcher 2 or Bulletstorm and know how brilliant the music was... Well that was 50% (roughly) Krzysztof Wierzynkiewicz's work. He's on board fo this one. (The kickstarter page has 3 tracks to listen to and they are pretty damn good)

    On top of this the studio (Abyss Lights) have worked on content for games from Need For Speed to LoL to World of Tanks (and lazy town :p)

    Here is why they are indie... makes for some infuriating reading if you are a space sim fan
    On top of the single player campaign Skyjacker also features a robust MULTIPLAYER experience. The standard game types are all available: Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch, Capture the Flag, and Last Man Standing. There’s even a Cooperative multiplayer mode, with a variety of encounters players can work together to survive. We say “can” instead of “should” - you are pirates, after all.

    Here is the official trailer.

    Due to the fact that the demo is only a proof of concept and very buggy/crashes frequently, I can't get good recording footage of the game, but it is very good fun. Feels quite similar to Tachyon the Fringe without the slide mechanic. Also the ability to customise ships is brilliant.
    You should all try it if you have even the slightest inetrest in space combat sims.
