  • I'm not home yet, but using the Xbox Game Pass app, I scheduled this for download.
  • 2019-06-01
  • This is pretty cool, something about the exploration of derelict ships, as well as the music and atmosphere reminds me of certain Amiga games like Paradroid 90 and Xenomorph.
  • I met the Space Pirates. It didn't go well for me.
  • 2019-06-02
  • The diminutive Frank Marshall snuck around with too few hit points in a treacherous ship and died of radiation poisoning.
  • Bernard Cooper did an amazing run, unlocking Heart Starter (extra life), Trainers (less slipping in oil), Banger grenades, Flak Vest, the Toaster gun, the amazing Rifter capture device (which allows you to capture Screws and other powerful enemies), the Clusterflack grenade, and finally the HR Computer, progressing the storyline.
  • Cooper is still alive, which is crazy, and I've found out how to use the Rifter to lock up Screws in prisons.
  • Cooper was finally defeated by Hybris when he tried to battle three pirates with a Cow Zapper and a Riveter.
  • 2019-06-04
  • I unlocked the Nebulator, which is basically a DOOM rocket launcher.
  • I got a shield! It's very effective against most enemies. Not Patients though.
  • 2019-06-05
  • These are the items need to complete the game:
    • Citizen Card
    • HR Computer
    • Water Cooling unit
    • Transmitter
    • Reg Certificate
  • 2019-06-07
  • I've learned to use the Rifter to deal with Zecs, and managed to build the Water Cooling system.
  • The Rad Spiker (applies radiation status to enemies) is also very effective against shielded enemies such as Zecs. I built the Transmitter ... I'm really tired, but Edwards just refuses to die.
  • 2019-06-08
  • Completed the game on Normal difficulty. Edwards kept surviving, and I focused on creating the last Action Item, the Reg Certificate. It worked, and the game ended without any particular challenge at the end.
  • 2022-10-13
  • I played this game on Xbox Game Pass, but I decided that I should own it, since it was one of my favourite games at the time, and I probably will play it again. I bought the 'Void Bastards: DeLUXe Bundle' for 264 DKK. Not cheap, but a fair price for an excellent game.
