Hardspace: Shipbreake­r ±R450


We rarely see what happens when massive sci-fi vessels are past their prime. In Hardspace:

Shipbreake­r, you’re a ‘breaker’ who recycles decommissi­oned starships. Each one you encounter has a different layout. To avoid decompress­ive explosions, detonating fuel, and volatile reactors, you must approach with care. As we were challenged with bigger, more massive ships with each job, we began to appreciate taking gargantuan tasks and breaking them down into bite-sized pieces. There’s a certain Zen that comes from tearing a multi-thousand-ton hulk down to nothing.
