Space Run is a PC game that mixes strategy and space ship construction in real time, borrowing certain mechanics from the “tower defense” system with numerous twists and hyper dynamic gameplay. Space Run is a nod to ‘80s science fiction and pays homage to many of its tropes and references.

The year is 2525. You are Captain Buck Mann, a Space Runner whose job is to transport valuable cargo from one end of the galaxy to the other... and one thing’s for sure: it’s going to be a bumpy ride! Not only do the cosmic highways regularly pass through asteroid belts of all sizes, but they are also used by dangerous and unscrupulous pirates armed to the teeth, whose fighters and battle cruisers will make short work of your transport vessel if you’re totally unprepared.
Fulfil your contracts with gusto and your reputation will soar, opening the doors to new clients and more demanding and hazardous assignments... but which will also be more lucrative! Unlock new modules for your ship or upgrade those you already own: laser turrets, missile launchers, shield generators, thrusters, power plants and other modules will allow you to adapt to new combat situations in mid-flight that arise on your travels. Build, recycle, repair and reposition the modules and improvise as best you can to deal with the multiple threats you will face.

Retry the first missions with the advanced modules you’ve just unlocked to improve your score, and challenge your friends to do better!

Story

Fast and safe delivery
when you need it there yesterday!
The Year is 2525, space is no longer "the final frontier". Mankind has spread out to the farthest reaches of the known galaxy. Thing is, those far reaches are dangerous, filled with space pirates, deadly asteroids, hostile aliens, random anomalies, and maybe even a strange space monster. But that doesn’t mean the people living out there still don’t want stuff. That’s where you come in.

You are captain Buck Mann (kind of an ironic since you don’t have a buck to your name).

You’re a "thirtysomething" year old pilot, but truthfully you don’t really care about age. Age is just a number and you’ve never been all that good with numbers. The only number that matters to you is being number one. You pride yourself in being the best fraking pilot in the galaxy, if not the universe. You once flew for Earth Force. Later you became a hot item on the space racing tour. You are a rugged individualist, your own man, a man’s man.
Problem is, you do have a bit of a gambling "habit". That gets you in trouble time and again. For your latest incidents, you were holding Aces over Kings a full house, a sure winner. Hard to believe you lost everything to some mutant who had four threes. Then you failed to cover the spread on the humans vs androids rugby game. You had the androids, but never anticipated that EMP blast. Long story short, you now owe the mob a LOT of credits. Being out of money and in debt over your head, you are forced to accept jobs piloting big bulky cargo ships. Much to your chagrin you are now a "Space Runner" making Space Run after Space Run.
Still, you have the courage, knowhow and mojo to get the job done! You have two mottos you use depending on the customer. "Fast safe delivery!" - "When you need it there yesterday!".
If somebody has a package they need delivered, you’re the man to do it, no questions asked. Well there is one question asked: how much does it pay?
Your crew

Adaam-12: an android who is one of a kind (well more likely 12 of a kind) he is your co-pilot, your second in command, your right hand man, eh machine.

He is constantly by your side. You won him in a black jack game. He knows pretty much everything and he is programmed to be ever helpful and full of ideas.

Yet this somehow doesn’t stop him from being snarky. Sometimes you think he thinks you work for him.

Transporters

The companies that hire you

Big Cargo is run by the beautiful Susana Siren: she is the CEO CFO COB (and pretty much head honcho) of Big Cargo. BC (as they insist on being called) is the biggest transportation company in the known worlds. There is no package too big, too small or too dangerous for them. They didn’t get to be big by playing it safe (or for that matter legal). Susana has a hot body and a cold heart. She’s an ex-mega-super model so you know she’s ruthless. She married the founder of BC, Dick Towers. Towers died in his sleep on the Honeymoon (or so the story goes). Susana took over the company and has grown it from really big to ridiculously huge. Rumor has it Ms. Siren (as she prefers to be called) can talk anybody into anything. Even though she is the head of BC she is still the one who interacts with you. She is very hands on.

While BC does have their a team of regular drivers they have so much work they have had to hire freelancers like yourself.

Many of the regulars are less than thrilled about the new additions.

Motto:

You Got It! We Get It There!

Nuclear Star is a big company that specializes in nuclear fuel and waste. Since their products are so dangerous to move their insurance is much lower if they actually hire freelancers to move their material. They are pretty much a faceless corporation. Sure they have owners and a board of directors but they all like to be as hush hush and keep as low profile as possible. Their thoughts are when you have a product that can go “BOOM” you don’t want to draw a lot of attention to yourselves. People either need nuclear fuel or want to get rid of nuclear waste, so Nuclear Star has more than enough work without advertising.

When you deal with Nuclear Star you deal with a faceless robot.

Radioactivity done right!

VIP Travel is a company for people who have more credits than they know what to do with. VIP Travel lets these people experience the “joy of deep space travel.” Eccentric mega billionaire Brandon Richards runs the company. He is a friendly guy who doesn’t seem to care about the dangers of space.
VIP gives you a passenger cabin to ride along with you for the view. These VIPs inside want to have “the best view” of deep space therefore they insist on being on the side of the ship which makes them more difficult to protect.

Motto:

We show stars the stars...

Out of This World is a company run by a bunch of strange acting people that claim they are space explorers and archeologists.

Out of this World gives you strange alien artifacts to transport. You don’t know how they acquire these strange artifacts. Some artifacts give you penalties other benefits.

When you deal with Out of This World you deal with strange looking and acting “humans” who go out of their way to convince you they are human.

Motto:

Trust us we’re humans just like you...

AI Squared is a newer company that specializes in advanced newer than new artificial intelligence. They give you cybernetic brains to transport. These brains must be connected to the central server.

When you deal with AI you deal with a computer presence that thinks it is better than you are.

Motto:

We Think Therefore We Are Better
