History

Spacejacked began as an attempt in 2013 to create a 2D metroidvania game featuring gravity manipulation as the core mechanic. As development dragged on, we realized that we were over-ambitious, and decided to build something much smaller. We created three small arenas, added the building of turrets as a mechanic, and threw in lots of enemies. We liked what we saw, and decided to expand upon it!

  • March 2014 - Development on Spacejacked began.
  • October 2014 - Official announcement made.
  • April 2015 - Spacejacked was Greenlit by the Steam community after 47 days.
  • September 2015 - Spacejacked won the Best Linux Game award in the Intel Level Up Game Demo Contest.
  • 26 February 2016 - Spacejacked was released on Steam.
  • August 2016 - Porting of Spacejacked to PS4 and Vita began.

Awards & Recognition

  • "Winner of the Best Linux Game award" - Intel Level Up 2015 Game Demo Contest

Selected Articles

  • "If nothing else, Spacejacked easily meets the most important criteria I have when reviewing games - fun. Its frantic pace, interesting take on the genre, and well-executed mechanics make for an enjoyable experience."
    - Chaz Miller, Twinfinite
  • "The mechanics in the game work so well that you don’t want to put the game down."
    - Eric Mortensen, Geeky Hobbies
  • "Build turrets, manage resources, shoot aliens, and die a bunch. It's that kind of game, and it's a lot of maddening, campy fun though it might also drive you completely insane."
    - Erik Kain, Forbes
  • "By mixing a 2D side-scrolling shooter with traditional tower defense, the developers have created an intoxicatingly addictive action game that perfectly transcends genres."
    - Cyril Lachel, Defunct Games
  • "My expectations were low, I was expecting a 30 minute session, maximum. Two hours later and my food’s burnt, I’m jumping between 3 different areas defending from alien hordes, while collecting scrap metal for my freshly developed turret obsession. Welcome to Spacejacked."
    - Marc Hemming, Big Boss Battle
