About

Hellion is a first person multiplayer space survival game. It is a fusion of survival and space simulation genres that pits players against the deadly environment and one another. Survive in the harsh conditions of space and scavenge for air, fuel and other items necessary for survival. But keep in mind, you are not the only one out there. There are others, but will they help, or will they throw you to the void without a second thought? Remember, no matter how brutal space may seem, it cannot hold a candle to man. Hellion is a solar system several thousand lightyears from Earth. Despite its distance, it is the target of the first interstellar colonization mission during the 23rd century. Almost a million colonists, suspended in cryogenic hibernation, leave Sol on a journey that would take many decades. However, when they wake up, almost a century later, they find themselves trapped inside a nightmare. Instead of living in a manmade paradise, they are forced to fight for survival surrounded by deserted stations, incomplete orbital habitats and derelict warships. With the closest rescue operation decades away, orbital economy in disarray and no authorities in sight, many turn to scavenging, stealing and outright violence. Few others try to live more civilized and begin uncovering the truth behind the largest disaster in human history. Hellion is an ambitious project. It is an immersive world set in a solar system many lightyears from the comforts of Earth and is entirely based on the laws of Newtonian physics. Hellion will make its debut as an Early Access game. EA version represents the basics of the vision behind this dark world. As our community grows and the player base expands, the game will evolve beyond these confines and become a true space survival that we can all enjoy. Open and honest communication between developers and community is the cornerstone of this idea. We are always open for discussion with our players as we believe that each and every one of us can add something to this project. Join us in the dystopian future that is Hellion and let’s build this world together! Below is a comprehensive list of features planned for Hellion’s early access. Most of these are already in the game, some of them will undergo modification and improvement while others will be implemented during the course of Early Access (features marked as completed are the ones that will be present from the start and possibly modified and improved upon, based on community feedback)… Space based on real physics Explore a persistent solar system where all in-game objects from planets and moons to ships and stations abide by Newtonian Physics and full Orbital Mechanics.

HELLION reviews and comments

Early Access Review After 6 Hours of Play, I thought I was writing a Summary of my Experience here. The first few Minutes: Chaos and Amazement! You fall into a Game world without any Help and you have to bring a Room Station module back to the forefront. The Control really takes getting used to at first and demands something really, BUT it is just right! It must not be easier! Because that's how it is in Space, you have to be careful, slow and with accuracy working otherwise you drift into the infinite vastness. After the first Big Game experience the first Setback, laggs transport me into the Inside of The station and finally into Space. Stupid just that I didn't have my Helmet on ... So Death. Of course, I didn't let this little Setback get me down and tried to re-joine "main server connection lost" Mh ... Oke... This has gone bleary-eyed. BUT I stayed tuned, I kept trying and came back in. Apparently, the main server has only been overwhelmed with Requests that had cleared up in the course of Time. I'm back in it and finally manage to dock some Station Modules together. When I finally tried to dock my Spaceship from the Station Modules, the next Bug came towards me. The Airlock was still filled with Air, I dribbed at the undock lever and PENG!!! My Ship lags from it through the Gust of air and lands in the middle OF IN the Station ... Well.... What to do, start again. So third Attempt. This Time everything is going great. I fit especially on always to use the Locks Nicely, always have the Helmet with me and after watching the navigation tutorial of the Developers on YT again, I even managed my first warp jumps. Then the first Meeting with another Player ship!! I approached slowly, got out with a gun pulled, flew there. Since the lock was filled with Air and the inner Door was open, I knew the Player still had to be in the Ship. I started the Decompression Process, got in, and then faced it! Well.... apparently he was AFK xD A Lucky fortune for me ... Shot him:D In the Warp-Drive then the Surprise! 3 fully charged WARPZELLEN!!! With Joy first by the area and have directly cleared the Cells and brought them into my Ship. There, overjoyed then continue to an Asteroid to collect RCS fuel. After initial Difficulties with the Drill ... Damn, who does ne empty Battery again in the Inventory but throw the full up floor?! ..... At some point I had the shoot there but also get out so everything went great. Oke... The Asteroid has occasionally made strange Movements but nothing disastrous, actually not even disturbing. Just the Yield much meagre off. Just 10% I was able to fill up. But 30% main thruster fuel!! Before, I had 0%;) And here came my 6 Standing Journey through the Remains of a Misguided Colonization. But it won't be the last 6 Hours I'll spend in this Game, because it's just Hammer! Sure, here and there are a few Bugs, and some are also unfortunately game braking ... But we're talking about an Early Access Game. This Game is now in development and actually not suitable for Playing. But with like the Idea of this Game so much that I am happy to help to improve it further and I am happy to start it again in purchase 3, 4, 10 or 20 times! So If you also want to watch a Simulation space survival game in the Making and maybe even participate in some Improvement or another, then buy this Game and support the Developers! If you just want to budge, shoot each other over the Heap and expect a continuous Game Pleasure, then NOT KUT IT YOU! WARTET until it is ready or more developed. In any case, I have no regrets about my Decision and hope that the Developers will stick to all their good Ideas and, above all, the degree of Difficulty!
