Publisher Iceberg Interactive developer Interactive Fate have revealed that Shortest Trip to Earth will be released through Steam’s Early Access program, later in 2018.

From the writer of ‘Teleglitch: Die More Edition’, Shortest Trip to Earth is a roguelike spaceship simulator featuring exploration, ship management, game-influencing decision-making and real-time tactical battles.

Players will embark on a perilous journey across a procedurally-generated universe, while an intergalactic war is raging. Venture through massive space sectors crawling with exotic lifeforms. Engage in action-packed tactical combat against hostile ships, boarding parties and inter-dimensional space monsters.

Shape your journey through hundreds of multiple-choice events, featuring unique hand-drawn illustrations.
