Objects in Space

Home / Objects in Space

Objects in Space is a modempunk stealth space-trading game set in Apollo – a huge cluster of star systems dozens of lightyears away from Earth. You are a lonesome ship’s captain, buying and selling wares in order to keep your bucket of bolts afloat and stay one step ahead of pirates, organised criminals, corrupt governments and shady laws. The game is being developed by Sydney-based Indie Studio Flat Earth Games.​ OiS has won the PAX Australia Indie Showcase in 2016, was nominated for the Alt.Ctrl.GDC award and was picked up by publisher 505 Games in 2017.

Objects in Space is still in development and was announced in July, 2015. I joined the team almost at this time, mainly working on concept art and ship interior design as well as the design for the physical controllers and consoles.​
The project has received a lot of press after PAX Aus 2015, including Warren Spector naming it his most innovative PAX game of the year. It has been on display with a physical controller set 2.0 at PAX East and West 2016 and has been reviewed by TotalBiscuit. Objects in Space won the PAX Australia Indie Showcase in 2016 and will be on GDC's Alt.Ctrl showfloor in 2017.​
