Out of Space is a co-operative game about living together on a space ship. You and your cohabitants have to build a sustainable spaceship, as well as making it a cosy home. All is not plain sailing though, as you come across deadly alien infestations, a lack of resources and (not forgetting) a long list of housework to get done.

Each of the spaceship levels are procedurally generated so you have a different challenge each time you play. This combines with the fun of playing with other people to make it a game that's easy to pick up and play while also requiring some strategy about prioritising your short and long term commitments and challenges.

As you play you unlock items you can purchase with in game currency and place in your spaceship to make it more of a home.
