Anniversary Update 2023
Rewind 5 years to February 2018 and we released Abandon Ship into Early Access, so we thought it appropriate to mark the occasion with a new free update.
The night we launched, we shot to 4th in the Global Top Seller charts, which was an amazing accomplishment for our little micro-studio to achieve on its debut title. Here’s a screengrab of the chart so you can see the games around us:
We’ve added three new ships to the game, meaning since our full release we’ve now expanded the roster with 15 free ships! Here’s what the latest additions look like:
The left and centre ships are of the Cutter and Schooner classes, and to acquire their blueprints you’ll need to capture them intact once you’ve encountered an enemy version.
The right-most vessel is a Warship class, and cannot be attained in the usual fashion. This one is unlocked upon completing a special event that has an accompanying achievement.
For those that have been following our work, you may find this particular ship oddly reminiscent, and that’s because we’ve based it on the player character from our upcoming game SENTRY. Here’s some concept art of that new ship alongside a model of a SENTRY for comparison:
Because this is a special case ship, you won’t see any enemy with this skin; it’s a player-only vessel. As to where the event is located, I won’t spoil anything as I know some of you are very good at detective work 🙂

We’ve also done some other small updates which you can find listed in our patch notes on Steam.
For existing owners, if you see the version number has updated in the main menu to 1.3.19921, you have the latest build.
