Critic Reviews for Hardspace: Shipbreaker

Hardspace: Shipbreaker makes disassembling giant spacecraft piece by piece fun for a bit, but due to a lack of variety in its puzzle-like objectives it soon devolves into hard labor.

A satisfying disassembly sim wrapped in cutting workplace commentary, Hardspace: Shipbreaker is a gig well worth taking up.

Despite its ambitious scope, Hardspace never bites off more than it can chew. It is unapologetically pro-union and anti-corporate, and it shows a remarkable deftness in handling the social complexities of those positions. It distinguishes the personal value of labor from the material value - two products our corporate overlords are eager to conflate - and offers a perspective of hope in an otherwise hopeless world. I consider Hardspace: Shipbreaker essential media for anyone that is employed - blue-collar or otherwise. If nothing else it will provoke you to think about your relationship with work in a new way. Considering we spend one-third of our lives doing it, it’s a worthwhile experience.

A deep space shipbreaking simulator with a mellow feel and a satirical edge, that's only let down by a gameplay loop that eventually gets a little too repetitive.

Impressive efforts with a few noticeable problems holding them back. Won't astound everyone, but is worth your time and cash.

A nice idea, very well implemented. If you are not scared by repetitive tasks you may have found your next job.
