Originally made for 7DRL 2014, Mysterious Space tasks you with delving deep into the ZZ-Omega sector to recover an important piece of information, and to return with that information in one piece.

To get there, you'll have to stop at planets along the way to find much-needed fuel.

Arm yourself with procedurally-generated weapons, armors, and shields to defeat the enemies that stand in your way.


  • Worlds of ice, forest, lava, and others! Plumb their procedurally-generated depths in search of fuel and other items!
  • Local co-op, up to five players! (One player can use the keyboard; the others will need Xbox controllers.)
  • "Alien Artifacts" and "Advanced Technology", analogous to potions and scrolls: does the Red Alien Artifact repair armor, this game? Or will it scramble your sensors for 5 seconds?
  • Various enemies, and a few mini-bosses, with distinct movement patterns/AI...
  • Procedurally-generated weapons, shields, armor, and accessories to equip yourself with
  • Upgrade Parts, which you can collect and use to further customize your ship!
  • "Secret logs" that reveal the lore of the world (galaxy? universe?)
  • Unlockable ships, and other components, offering different play-styles and optional challenges.

Profits go to Charity
