While it’s extremely reductive to use comparisons to other games to describe new ones since it quickly paints a picture it is convenient. So with Deep Sky Derelicts I’d say start with a picture of Darkest Dungeon but set in space and with a sci-fi rather than a gothic bent. If you guessed that implies that it can be a tough game, you’d be right. Though Derelicts lacks perhaps some of the cruel edge of the challenge of your party members being inclined to going insane that also diminishes some of the game’s overall personality and memorability as well unfortunately. If you’re down for the challenge of managing combat and understanding how best to utilize your team and the equipment you find you’ll probably dig it, but if you were hoping for narrative threads or something bigger and more exciting to tie the experience together you’ll likely find it a bit lacking.
