What is Distant Star: Revenant Fleet about?
In Distant Star: Revenant Fleet, you take control of the last remaining ships of a near-destroyed A'kari fleet, and must rebuild your forces as you battle through ancient, galactic battlefields towards a final showdown with the Orthani.
Build your fleet of up to 5 ships (from a choice of any combination of 8 classes) and upgrade their weapons and attachments which give you new and improved skills to use in combat. With hundreds of attachments to choose from, each class has many different possible loadouts.
Traverse the galaxy one system at a time - each step of the way you will face unique story events, each of which has multiple outcomes that can change with each playthrough. Choose whether or not you enter combat, flee or try to talk your way out of difficult situations - but dont think the same choice next time round will have the same outcome!
Combat takes place in small tactical RTS missions that last between 5 and 30 minutes. Enemy fleets scale to always provide a challenge for your fleet and as you progress through the game, things will get tougher still! But dont worry, you can use Tactical Pause to issue orders to your fleet and ensure you have the upper hand in battle.
All set within a beautifully designed universe with an eerily atmospheric soundtrack - Distant Star: Revenant Fleet is a game youll be playing again and again...
FTL: Faster Than Light says hello. Similar plot and dark gameplay. But you command a fleet instead of just a ship. This game doesn't come close to the charm of FTL, but it was still fun for me. First and foremost, you have to fight pretty and tactical space battles in real time. I used the pause button a lot. On the normal level of difficulty, I played Distant Star: Revenant Fleet in about 4 hours. Not in one piece but in several sessions. It was the perfect sci-fi game for me to fill in the gaps until my beloved wife had finished dinner or the bathtub was full. I will do one or two more runs to unlock some more Steam Achievements, that's for sure. For pure u201eAchievementu201c or u201ePerfekte Spieleu201c hunters, however, the part is nothing, since some Achievements would probably have to play through the game 50 times. It doesn't offer that much content.
