A downloadable game for Windows and Linux

Space Mercs is an extreme arcade space combat game where the amount of projectiles and lasers on-screen is only toppled by the amount of stars in the universe! Will you be able to complete all the mercenary missions and become the best pilot in the Galaxy?

Please wishlist the game on Steam if you like the demo! It's going to help us rank better on launch! Please!

The demo version gives you access to three missions that take place in the middle of the campaign and a quick battle mode where you are placed in a battlefield with more than 100 ships! Boost, dodge and roll your way towards victory and out of enemy fire!

Designed to be played with the keyboard! Supports Gamepad and Mouse ( key/button bindings available in the options menu).

The game was designed under my Linux 1st Initiative.
