Today’s Niche Spotlight is Kosmokrats, a puzzle-adventure game full of dark humor by Pixel Delusion and Modern Wolf.
Things aren’t going so well on Earth right now, and as a member of the glorious Space Force, it’s your job to assemble starships and space stations with the most advanced drones of the 1960s.
Push and pull parts to connect them together while in zero gravity, taking special care not to kill yourself or your brave comrades. Your efforts will be rewarded with rations of vodka, potatoes, leisure time with your state-of-the-art Я-Box games console, and the reassuring knowledge that you will save humanity and help spread space communism to the masses.
You can find the launch trailer below.
You can find the rundown (via Steam) below:
Comrades! You have grown bored of Earth, and rightly so. Take your life into your own hands by joining the SPACE FORCE. As an elite drone pilot in the SPACE FORCE, you will learn to use your drone to assemble spaceships in orbit. See the wonders of the solar system, and possibly even survive. There is no fail state for Kosmokrats, but your mistakes will shape the story.
Build a mighty fleet: Use the most cutting edge drone technology of the 1960s to master assembling spaceships in orbit: simply push and pull the spaceship parts together in zero gravity. Just make sure you’re lining up the right connectors, comrade. And don’t take too long. Or squish too many brave cosmonauts.
Live a heroic narrative: The story of the people’s colonization of the solar system and beyond is full of interesting characters and even more interesting decisions! No two play-throughs will be the same, and every action you take — from accidentally killing cosmonauts in “workplace incidents” to failing to correctly assemble spaceships — will have repercussions that you and the fleet will feel sooner or later.
Become a citizen of the stars: In Kosmokrats you will earn medals to display in your awards cabinet, read the very accurate Official Party newspaper, entertain yourself between missions with your state-of-the-art Я-Box games console, adjust the game’s difficulty level with the help of vodka, and more.
Join the SPACE FORCE! Play Kosmokrats!
