VIDEO: Space Crew announcement trailer from the Future Games Show, also on YouTube (opens in new tab)

Bomber Crew is a tough and extremely fun strategy flight sim (opens in new tab)—a bit like FTL set in World War II. It was a near-instant hit, and developer Runner Duck said back in 2017 that they planned on making another game.

Well, climb out of your battered old airplane and put on a space suit, because Bomber Crew is getting a sequel and it's set far in the future. Get ready for Space Crew.

At the Future Games Show (opens in new tab), the Space Crew announcement trailer went "full Abrams" with the lens flares and showed off the same cartoony energy as the original game, but in a sci-fi setting. Once again you'll have to manage a crew and stave off disaster, this time trying to keep your spaceship in one piece as you battle aliens across the galaxy.

Space Crew will blast off this September on Steam.

Chris started playing PC games in the 1980s, started writing about them in the early 2000s, and (finally) started getting paid to write about them in the late 2000s. Following a few years as a regular freelancer, PC Gamer hired him in 2014, probably so he'd stop emailing them asking for more work. Chris has a love-hate relationship with survival games and an unhealthy fascination with the inner lives of NPCs. He's also a fan of offbeat simulation games, mods, and ignoring storylines in RPGs so he can make up his own.
