Recommended Posts



Blackbird Interactive, the studio behind Homeworld: Deserts of Kharak and the upcoming Homeworld 3, and Focus Home Interactive are pleased to announce Hardspace: Shipbreaker. With true-to-life physics and demolition effects, a sandbox of creative destruction lies before you this Summer on Steam Early Access. Put on your suit and get a first look of the life a space cutter in its Debut Gameplay Trailer.


Early Access will launch with many features to discover, 2 classes of spaceship to salvage, multiple upgradable salvaging tools and perks, and the first act of the story campaign. Over the course of the Early Access period, we are committed to releasing more spaceship classes, missions, daily challenges, leaderboards, modding support and much more with the help of the Steam Early Access community.

“We identified early in development that we wanted to release Hardspace: Shipbreaker on Early Access. We have a clear vision for what we think the game wants to be but there are still some things we need to figure out and we thought it would be fun to bring in the Early Access community to help us discover these things together.” says Trey Smith, Creative Director on Hardspace: Shipbreaker.


 “We are delighted to bring Blackbird on board the Focus flagship as we continue to invest in new and innovative games that will delight players for years to come. It’s also fantastic to be able to reveal this game in full at PAX East 2020, the premiere gaming culture convention running yearly in Boston, Massachusetts.” says John Bert, Focus Home Interactive Chief Operating Officer.


Hardspace: Shipbreaker launches in Early Access on Steam on Summer 2020. Focus Home Interactive and Blackbird Interactive will hold a live reveal stream on Twitch, February 20th at 5pm CET. The game will also be showcased at PAX East 2020 from February 27th to March 1st at the Focus Home Interactive booth (n°29017) and the Blackbird Interactive booth (n°28071).

Every time I see this thread I think it says "Shitbreaker" and it really gives a different meaning to the word "Hardspace"

This would also be a fun game. "We gotta shrink you down and break up that log or else Major Johnson's gonna cut his rectum clean in two."
