From Tau Leader:
Deep Space D-6: Armada is the standalone multiplayer sequel to Deep Space D-6.
In the far reaches of the galaxy, a local cluster of planets have been invaded by a hostile regime. Players will take command of a starship and work together to complete missions while defending the system.
Each player begins the game with their own starship with unique capabilities and basic crew. As you earn credits from completing missions, you’ll be able to upgrade your ship and hire advanced crew members. Your crew are your dice and players will roll them to assign them to their ship’s stations in order to perform actions during combat or complete missions. Ship to ship combat in Armada involves managing your crew and ship stations. As your ship takes damages, your stations become disabled and require repair actions by engineers. Your crew is also susceptible to injury and you’ll medic actions to revive them. Ships can be customized to your individual playstayle, whether you prefer to deal direct damage, or support teammates by disabling enemy shields and stations.
When the players have fully eliminated the threat, the sector will be saved. What challenge faces our captains? And who is behind all the terror?
DSD6: Armada takes the gameplay of Deep Space D-6 and enhances it with ship upgrades, luck mitigation, missions, and co-operative gameplay- all while retaining the game’s signature minimalist style.
