What is This Means Warp?


This Means Warp is a space-faring roguelike adventure. One to four players work together to run a spaceship as you traverse a procedurally generated map in real-time, engaging in both combat and non-combat encounters. Facing increasingly dangerous enemies, upgrade your ship and purchase new sub-systems as you progress. The stakes are high - if your ship is destroyed, it’s game over.
