Today’s Spotlight is Landinar: Into the Void, a top-down space RPG by Convoy Games that recently left Steam Early Access.
You play as a rookie bounty hunter that has been recruited by the mysterious Stone Eye Children to complete a mission in a quadrant of space that is currently under complete lockdown by the oppressive Landinar Empire.
Build your own starship by collecting hull blueprints that can be modified with whatever internal systems and firepower that you like. Explore the quadrant, take on quests, and fly under the radar of the Landinar military. You can check out the launch trailer above.
Landinar: Into the Void is available on Windows PC via Steam for $15.99.
Here’s a rundown of the game:
The Landinar Empire has the quadrant on lockdown. Having lost your previous job, you are recruited as a bounty hunter for the Stone Eyed Children. Under their wing you will explore the quadrant, all while having the freedom to build your own spaceship.
Meet diverse characters throughout the Landinar quadrant by docking your ship and exploring stations on foot. As a bounty hunter, you can visit the stations’ bounty boards to accept randomly generated bounty missions for credits and rewards. Discover the quadrant, warp from sector to sector and explore stations, hidden areas and secrets at your own pace. You decide where to go next, whether it is continuing the main story or making your own adventure.
Gather hull templates and ship parts to build your own spaceship. What strategy will you choose? Do you prefer speed or gunpower? Build your ship to match your personal playing style at the stations’ ship builders and fly off into space in your own custom ship.
Traverse the Landinar sectors and pick your battles. Choose from 10+ weapon types to find your personal strategy and take down your enemies in real time top-down space combat. Hop out of your cockpit mid-combat to repair broken-down rooms with your repair gun, reload your weapons or change your engine boost settings. Board and hack your shut-down enemies for even more rewards.
In Landinar: Into the Void you create your own adventure. You decide what to do, who to talk to, who to fight and how big (or small) your spaceship is going to be!
