Atomic Space Command Now on Steam Early Access

Atomic Space Command Now on Steam Early Access

Atomic Space Command — a multi-crew, co-op/competitive space combat game — is now available on Steam Early Access

Join the fray and vie for the “Atomic Overlord” title in this stunning, full-featured PvP battler for PC, Mac, and Linux developed by Bay Area-based No, You Shut Up! Games.

Atomic Space Command blends spaceship combat with strategy and simulation mechanics. Two competing teams battle it out in a massive solar arena in large-scale PvP skirmishes or objective-based PvE missions. To claim victory, you’ll build a spaceship, field co-op armadas with your allies, and build on planets to extract the coveted Spice Atomic before your enemies destroy you.


Timothy Johnson (CEO – No, You Shut Up! Games):

Atomic Space Command is everything you’ve ever wanted in a spaceship building, co-op battle arena game. I founded No, You Shut Up! to make the games that my friends and I always wanted to play — and Atomic Space Command delivers in a big way.”

Marty Caplan (Executive Producer – No, You Shut Up! Games):

“The game recreates the experience of playing with spaceships as a kid — from putting them together to whooshing them around the room while making ‘pew-pew-pew’ noises. If you ever did anything like that as a kid, you and your friends are bound to have a great time with Atomic Space Command.”

Build your ship from dozens of swappable chassis, weapons, thrusters, and other modules — ensuring that your team has the best ships to handle any situation. But winning is not as easy as building the biggest ship … or being the best pilot. You’ll also need to manage your crew and monitor the ship’s systems — making sure to keep your ship fueled and components repaired.

With a bigger ship, you have more hull hit points and can carry additional components and crew. This also means you have extra resources to manage, so co-op roles are more fun and advantageous. However, huge vessels are also heavier and less maneuverable — with slower acceleration and top speed. Each ship module can be individually damaged and hacked, so be careful when assembling bulky battlecruisers. Daring players can easily swoop in and disable weapons, thrusters, or even life support with a few well placed shots!

Teamwork is the name of the game — and it’s critical to victory. Work with your allies and pool your resources to create an unstoppable behemoth — or have a friend join you as a co-pilot so you can manage the crew and keep the ship’s systems operational in the heat of combat … giving new meaning to “#SquadGoals.”

The galactic arena is filled with planets that you can take over and use to your advantage: Build bases on planets to repair and resupply your ships; set up defensive structures to make a defendable fortress; construct fighter bays to expand your fleet with AI controlled ships; or go on the defense by establishing a Spice Atomic mine — and force your enemies to come to you. After completing each mission or arena, it’s time to collect Silver Atomics to buy ship upgrades, modules, and recruit additional crew members.

  • Explore the solar system with up to 8 player-controlled ships on your team
