Game Information

Available on:PCNov 13, 2013

Developer: The Tiniest Shark

Publisher: Positech Games

Genres: Simulation, RPG

Redshirt is the comedy sci-fi sim about social networking aboard a space station, starring the station's most ambitious low-ranking peon: you! Navigate the professional and interpersonal politics of the ubiquitous "Spacebook" to curry favor among friends and colleagues. As intense intergalactic conflict rages around you, it's up to you to accrue those all-important "likes" on your status updates! Whether you're looking for love, opportunities for promotion, or even a chance to play Zero-G golf with the captain, you can schmooze your way through social circles and claw your way up the career ladder. Perhaps you too can finally achieve the dream of an off-station transfer, or even the Redshirt's opportunity of a lifetime: being sent on an away-mission!

Redshirt is deeper than its Star Trek parody presentation might appear, but it's not quite deep enough.

For all its charm and ambition, Redshirt can't even come close to realising that goal, and inevitably ends up as a fairly flat and repetitive exercise in meaningless random text and mindless icon clicking. In that sense, it's arguably a perfect simulation of real-life social media, but it unfortunately doesn't make for an edifying game experience.

While Redshirt is a funny and clever sim that allows for interesting relationships, it can occasionally be as mindless as the social networks it parodies.

I couldn't pull myself away from the addictive nature of Spacebook.
