Dereliction is a very cool looking real-time squad based tactics game in which you take control of an elite squad of mercenaries as they fight for control of a derelict space ship that’s been overrun by deadly alien bugs.
In Dereliction your team of mercenaries do battle against the Dross – a swarming Starship Troopers-esque race of alien bugs that are keen on putting humans at the bottom of their food chain. The Dross are fairly primitive creatures so you have the upper hand technology-wise, but they more than make up for it with numbers, with over 200 of them able to swarm towards your team at once. You’re going to need a hell of a lot of bullets to get out of this one alive.
Your goal is to make your way across the bug-infested ship, eradicate the bugs, reach the command centre and restore power. The advanced AI system that controls the swarm will test your team at every turn and thanks to the randomly generated ship design, each playthrough is different. Your team does have a nice selection of weaponry at its disposal though, from flamethrowers to miniguns, which should help keep the bugs at bay.
It’s a great looking game, with fast paced real time tactical squad based combat, stylish visuals, big guns and masses of swarming aliens to shoot. Sign up for the Beta now to join in the bug hunt.
