No More Robots have announced TombStar, a top-down roguelite shooter by Andy Sum and Marcus Grambau.

You can find the announcement trailer below.

TombStar will be getting a closed beta later this year. Gamers interested in trying it out can sign up by joining the developer’s Discord server.

You can find a rundown of the game (via Steam) below:


“Travellers who wander into those parts don’t return. That whole star system is a tomb star” – Captain Jack Galloway

At the edges of the Galaxy, the Grimheart Gang have driven away every peaceful settler and claimed the whole star system to themselves. Efforts to remove them have been failures, until now. As part of an eclectic group of gunslingers, your job is to bring these criminals to justice, both for their crimes against the galaxy as well as for your own personal vengeance.

TombStar is a top-down space Western shooter with roguelike elements that follows a group of ferocious gunslingers in their quest to bring down the biggest outlaw gang in the Frontier Galaxy and free society from their tyrannical grip.

  • Blaze your way through hordes of assorted space scum, from pistol-wielding cowpokes to robots with death lasers
  • Collect valuable loot, powerful upgrades and an abundance of dynamic weapons
  • Cross four planets with their own distinct and gruelling alien landscapes to infiltrate the Grimheart Gang’s territory
  • Free society from tyranny and dispatch your own brand of justice in this lawless world

TombStar launches 2021 for Windows PC (via Steam), and unannounced consoles.
