Void Bastards is a revolutionary new strategy-shooter that will test your wits as well as exercise your aim. Can you lead the misfit prisoners of the Void Ark through the derelict spaceships?
Forget everything you know about first-person shooters: Void Bastards asks you to take charge, not just point your gun and fire. Your task is to lead the rag-tag Void Bastards out of the Sargasso Nebula. You make the decisions: where to go, what to do and who to fight. And then you must carry out that strategy in the face of strange and terrible enemies.
On board derelict spaceships you’ll plan your mission, taking note of the ship layout, what hazards and enemies you might encounter and what terminals and other ship systems you can use to your advantage...
Move carefully through the dangerous ships, searching for supplies and manipulating control systems. React to what you find - will you detour to the generator to bring the power back online or will you fight your way into the security module to disable the ship’s defenses? Choose carefully when to fight, when to run and when just to be a bastard.
Use your hard won supplies to improvise tools and weapons, from the distracting robo-kitty to the horribly unstable clusterflak.
Navigate your tiny escape pod through the vast nebula. Flee from void whales and pirates, and politely avoid the hungry hermits. All the while you must keep scavenging for the food, fuel, and other resources that keep you alive.
Void Bastards features a 12-15 hour campaign that you can complete with an endless supply of prisoners, each with their own unique traits. When one dies, another steps forward to carry on the fight. Don’t worry though, as any crafting progress you’ve made is retained from one to another.

Void Bastards: Bang Tydy
Clean up your messy nebula with the Tydy DLC! Tydy adds a whole new org to Void Bastards as well as a brutal new weapon, a fiendishly dangerous new opponent, new ships to loot and the opportunity to collect additional heart starters, giving you a chance to keep your favourite client alive or beat that ironman challenge.
Tydy vans roam the nebula dispensing neat-freak Tydy bots into every ship they visit. Although Tydy bots aren’t hostile, to them you’re just another dirty, dirty object to be vacuumed clean. Unfortunately for you, Tydy vacuums sucks the very air out of your lungs, making it hard to hang around.
The good news is that parts from Tydy ships can be repurposed by clever clients and used to build your own vacuum device: the whackuum. The whackuum not only dishes out damage to your enemies, it can suck blood from citizens and slag out of mechanical foes. It’s a double whammy!
But perhaps the choicest delight that Tydy offers up is the chance to rip out an ignition plug from a combustion chamber on a Tydy furnace ship. This plug can easily be turned into a makeshift heart starter, giving you that jolt back to life when you’ve been living life on the edge. Watch out though, because the furnace is a dangerous place…
Rumour has it that other goodies can be recovered from Tydy ships due to the large amount of discarded junk that the Tydy bots have been known to collect.
