Though visually stunning, the galaxy of Underspace hides untold horrors that will haunt even the most hardened space veterans. Inspired by the twisted cosmic horror of H.P. Lovecraft, Underspace mixes sci-fi and eldritch madness for a unique setting.

Players must maintain their sanity while navigating violent electrical storms, parasitic entities, dangerous cultists, and a pantheon of dark gods who promise only annihilation.

Customize Your Way Through a Dangerous Galaxy

Success in Underspace requires more than just strong piloting skills. Players can customize and upgrade their own spacefighters with diverse hulls, weapons, engines, and other modules.

Utilize stealth, speed, and firepower to survive against pirates, assassins, mercenaries, and cosmic beasts lurking at every hyperspace jump point.

Enter a Massive Multiplayer Galaxy

Alongside the single-player campaign, Underspace will feature online multiplayer at launch. Join up to 32 players as you battle for riches and explore the most dangerous corners of the galaxy.
