Element Space is a video game in the Tactical turn-based RPG genre set in a dystopic future where mankind has colonized three solar systems and their vicinities. The player takes the spotlight in a new intergalactic upheaval, leading their own squadron into dangerous situations and dealing with the consequences of their choices.

An action-packed fusion of immersive storytelling and strategic turn-based combat, Element Space follows the journey of Captain Christopher Pietham and an elite team of soldiers on a galaxy-spanning mission to hunt down the terrorist organization Tempest. Thwart their radical plans and secure humanity’s future by outmaneuvering their fighters across distinct 20 battlefields teeming with environmental hazards, critical chokepoints, and destructible terrain.

Recruit allies with backgrounds, beliefs, and abilities as numerous as the stars in the sky. Kit out these companions from an armory of more than 30 weapons, mixing and matching gear to forge an unstoppable team. Interact with a range of factions, each vying for control of the galaxy, to gain their favor, unlock new perks, skills, and equipment to help take Tempest down.

Shape the fate of the galaxy with an immersive ideological system tracking both combat outcomes and narrative choices. Captain Pietham’s decisions ripple outward into space, attracting new characters to his cause, repelling others, and causing new narrative branches to open and close as relationships with friends and foes continue to grow and evolve.
