all right it's been a couple weeks since

i spun the roguelike roulette i've got a

whole bunch of new ones

on the horizon that i'm looking forward

to but

let's spin this anyway uh see everything

is good everything is good there's just

a bit of a delay on the twitch side of

things that i'm like is it working is it

not working i don't know

uh worry so we're going to play today

is it going to be heat signatures or is

it going to be immortal no it's going to

be heat signature

i actually haven't played this

in a long time i think there's even a

dlc that i missed

that people said i should specifically

give a go but i

just never got around to it all right

hey everyone waterbot here and i guess

welcome to heat signature i guess we

already rolled through the uh the

tutorial the tutorial we rolled through

the roulette

got here i've already played this game

before but it's been three years so i've

kind of forgotten how to play so we're

actually gonna dive in fresh because

it's gonna be a lot easier on me

uh let's see so i can be a couple of

different characters uh see so

daily challenger uh so you don't know

how to recharge or self-charge gadgets

and at this point you're too embarrassed

to ask extra glory oh interesting

uh see so intel costs so each of these

characters has a different personal

mission two times

likely to find good stuff in crates yeah

let's go with this guy

this guy seems decent he's got he's got

a good hammer everything is good

and i'm not gonna die galaxy 2 galactic

boogaloo exactly

you understand it uh let's see so what

do you want to do

non-lethal weapon required i don't know

if i have one of those so we're just

going to do

the composi project let's see do i want

to replay tutorial real quick

we should do that

this is how i pictured my retirement

getting shot out over nebula of battery


in the ass end of nowhere but i'm

invested now and there's one last thing

i want to do before i quit


there we go move left up down and right

yeah i figured just

quick refresher on the tutorial will be

super helpful

pause okay click on this


i can just teleport these things to me i

forget i forgot i could do that

oh i could actually equip it okay so

this is how we equip stuff

door's locked let's see grab the gun

pause now right click the gun

stand about here

okay so they hear the gunshot

there's the key okay guards sound the

alarm if they hear a shot find a body

see you

count count down hit zero you'll be

captured taking on the captain gun

cancel the cancels the bat the countdown

good got it there goes the window oh

Watch video from 03:00 - 6:00

take the helm but there's

three dudes i or maybe there aren't or


set of course for cold rock perfect

breaker i got a seed ship

i've laid of course laden of course for

cold rock haven this ship can crash the

defenses but you got to reprogram them

from the inside while they're down

i'm going to throw myself into space now

meet me at the bar if i don't die

well all right that's a pretty good

starting sequence


this seems like a foolish thing to do

she's pretty far away from anything

i mean i guess space is kind of small in

this immediate environment but like


dang you're gonna run into troubles


eat signature all right so now that i've

remembered how to play

we're just gonna we're just gonna

continue so cool rock haven

has been captured and recaptured four

times this year first three times no one


lived there could fight no one who lived

there could fight it this time

one of them can this time one of them

has a 40-year career in espionage a

preacher's stealth pod and a kinetic


breaker so it's gonna change hands one

last time

this time i'm taking it

pause click to remote control your pod

break will try and match

your speed as you as you're approaching

okay there we go so i just have to run

over myself

i wasn't actually sure if i if i had to

run over or

like how it exactly worked okay let's

get up in this

so now we know how to now we know how to


and we're good cool

talk to breaker holy you're alive

i get that more than you'd think hey we

have a station

we have a station that's going to start

something you know other stations are

going to want to throw off the shackles

like this

four factions fighting over this cloud

whoever get their strongholds this war

just ends

interesting idea sure oh sure you don't

want to postpone your retirement and

help out

you tear through these amateurs

i've been shot 10 times breaker i'll be

Watch video from 06:00 - 9:00

lucky if i make it to the couch

fair enough so that's it you're gonna

retire can't picture it what are you

gonna do

got connections people have problems i'm

gonna help out

well they're probably gonna come to me

with those but i'll point them your way

thanks b all right so retire

oh leave all right so now we get to pick

which characters we're playing as

so i was using seder okay

now we're good see practice being cool

start practice

nah practice is for other people let's


or steal the thing there's boss

what is the boss heat sensor okay

conductor can detect you within sensor

range without line of sight

we'll send the alarm and investigate has

a sword lethal weapon got it

there's also something here i'm not

entirely sure what that is but we're

going to start easy and work our way up

because i think last time uh i wasn't

ready for it

not that anybody knew knew or saw that

oh boy this one's far away

that's fine



i do wish the ship's exteriors were

cooler looking okay

quiet gun so we have a glitch trap and

quiet gun


he's there

i do actually have a key oh i see

one of those


that gunshot not nearly as quiet as i

was expecting it would be

with a name like quiet gun i was

expecting something to be well

you know silent okay

there's one more guy

and we're good ship secured steal the

thing and

uh do whatever so question is where are

all the security consoles

or did i pick up the key all right no

here we go here's the security council

that gets those oh no that gets all of

them hell yeah

okay so we get the experiment and

question is can i just fly this fly the


is that course to the nearest friendly


uh looks like it's working here's the

question will it just drop me off as a


i think so so silent is a separate

modifier to quiet

fair enough

oh uh do we want face cam for this what

Watch video from 09:00 - 12:00

do you guys think

i was toying with it yesterday and i

actually wouldn't mind turning it on or


because i i've been i've been playing

with face cam i

i think it's going to be one of those

where i only turn it on for certain


maybe i don't i really know oh you can

hit f to fast forward

what's handy so it looks like it just

dumps you off well one more or another

drop point drop off point

okay so we get liberation progress

mission time unscathed

enigma cool all right

yeah let's turn the cameras on

because the other all tabbing makes this

game have


but whatever it only takes a bit i think

there's a bonus for not murdering


yeah where's the fun in that

like honest a good oddness yeah honest

to goodness question

where is the fun in not murderizing


so we're gonna have to figure out uh

let's just pick another easy job

because i'm 90 certain my face is in the

wrong spot

so non-lethal required few guards

you guards let's do this one glitcher


oh so i can't like sell the ship or

anything like that that's unfortunate

hello yes i'm here to assassinate

we just have to make sure we avoid gun

oop okay so

assumption is right corner is probably

top right corner is probably safe let's

figure this out


so thank you for key

let's see now do we have anything here

that's actually good

not as much now oh yes assassinate that

was easy

oh you can kill them from the pause

screen how do

kill yummy fury done all right is there

any interesting

loot here i don't actually know

this looks like something

oh there was just money lying around on

the ground

could have chucked him into space

probably could have

all right whatever anyway let's just

send us home go from here and fast

forward i think

or do we have to

there we go i think i have to hold fast

Watch video from 12:00 - 15:00

forward to go home faster

that's okay all right let's switch this

around all right we're all good

enigma silent unscathed pay is absolute


so what do we have pod shop stash

can i sell okay so i can sell certain

things but

most of the stuff isn't that helpful

recover pod lose your pods somehow make

it back here

this is what costs to replace oof

passive traps short blades wrench


wipe fire quiet quick fire shotgun

overpriced rechargeable cell


okay so some of these look kind of neat

gonna be hard to work with

gun shops i remember if there's actually

much of a


oh you actually just see all of this

right now shops restock in a couple of

minutes some misc

shop has these then there's discounted

gadget shop gunshot

explosive shop pod shop and overpriced

doodoo shortage

all right so we don't actually have to

look at all of those that's a nice

system i guess

now alarm responds 40 seconds to escape

note from fiasco

this ship's been on my radar as a lead

on your target

just in phase i don't care if you do the


but get on board and check out the

terminal i've marked it'll save my


some work and i'll knock 40 off my fee

few guards

i think we're okay


we could we could do this one hard is

not impossible

and i got guns

we'll go from there so is the meta

progression in this game just the fact

that you're slowly collecting equipment

i i know there was something to do with

liberations that got you extra stuff

there we go okay


glitch dash

got it so as long as i'm outside of

range there is a turret that's a bit of

a scare

got him okay

got him what is this take visitor

okay what is a visitor teleporters move

you instantly but

each has okay


oh look anywhere on the radius to

teleport there you'll be pulled back to

Watch video from 15:00 - 18:00

your original location two seconds later



i think i think i got the turret to kill

the dude

okay got the intel

okay that's this ain't gonna work

that didn't work

got the key all right we're back

visitor is nuts i love this

okay uh let's see long range crash beam

we're just going to hang out here for a

second so long range crash beam turns


turrets shields and any other electronic

guard kit

can be used three times i'd like a

self-charging variety

but gonna be hard

to give me one of those oh boy

and i do have another visitor

got him all right we're all good what

kind of gun did he have

quite concussive gun that sounds fun

now we just have to worry about the

turret so i don't get uh absolutely

blasted on the way in

set of course for a friendly station

would prefer

not to okay rechargeable long range key


oh that's handy

nope gonna wait for that for a second

can you break a turret oh sentry gun

instantly knocks you unconscious can be

blown up crash or hacked

okay got that just gonna just gonna zoom

out a bunch

okay so

if you go up to it oh yep you can

deactivate it

doesn't look like you can i can turn it

to my side but that's still useful

okay well that wasn't so bad uh let's


pot shop i guess let's take a look at

this is all just kind of the same stuff

so concussive gun is quiet can't be

Watch video from 18:00 - 21:00

heard through walls and closed doors

audible range has shown

okay and rechargeable

well sell the wrench

do i sell the visitor

i'm gonna sell the visitor for a smidge

we have some money

curious what the credit looking stuff is

i have no idea what those resources are

all right well one way or another

i've got my um ooh hi

arm response please glitch back


i will instantly teleport you out if

you're about to be injured in any way so

there's no risk in attempting this

mission ship will escape though

the mission will be cancelled passing

through any door in the ship deactivates

any gadgets you have running slip


it sounds fun so we're gonna we're gonna

try this one

even if it's not actually the most


visitor seems like a profoundly useful

tool i

i can imagine a lot of those tools will

be amazing

i'd like to find the recharging versions

okay let's take a look

oh he's got shields

now well

uh that didn't work he had shields

i don't actually know how to deal with


well whatever let's see what's this one

glitch back guarantee

light reinforcements hell yeah if

there's a guarantee then i'm just gonna

do my thing

i'll have to figure out shield piercing

uh there's probably something

let's see they're dealt with via crash

beams or hammer before they see you

yeah they must have he must have spotted

me uh very early on

i think did see that that looks like a

snipey gun

could be wrong

okay so i one thing i gotta give myself

credit for i've got a lot longer range

than i think i do with this hammer

it's actually super helpful

now i'm not entirely sure

Watch video from 21:00 - 24:00

what do i have well

there we go got that defender arriving


let's see key

got that so we have a defender arriving

in a couple of seconds

unless they go incredibly fast nope

okay that didn't work and i think i'm in



well these are all glitch back


so cool i should probably pause and

actually take a look at some of these

things because it actually tells me how

to deal with it

i'm just going to keep doing um yeah

crash down for shields yeah

unfortunately i don't

really have uh the capability to deal

with that currently

or maybe i do oh crash beam

shields okay so we do actually have a

means of getting rid of shields

i just need to use it

i just have to steal a thing so

hopefully i don't screw up as hard


i'll get used to it you're getting

injured every time you get shot oh

okay so let's take a look at these guys

defended only their defender can be

crashed or hacked

and shields to nearby guards okay

so we got to steal that thing we have a


we have two defenders

so how does this work


got gunshot

okay now we gotta panic

because there's that where the heck is

the captain's chair

there's the pilot okay

there's the level two key card

i might not be able to do this

wait we have a key cloner

Watch video from 24:00 - 27:00

copies guard's key card through distant


what are these concussive shotgun i'm

gonna grab one of those

okay so

do secondary

keys are open

okay let me just bail down this

grab him timer's off steal the thing

take the phase project oh it's f to take

the phase project

and i think that's it there is an item

okay rechargeable emergency shield

i like that better than the quite

concussive gun i think

let's see what else we have not enough

to really make me want to stick around

ah let's see but the question is do we

do it anyway

attempting to do so

uh why didn't that work oh i hacked the


okay they're done there's something down


i think this is just munitions in

retrospect armor-piercing rounds

oh so that's what that is so the orange

is regular ammo

got it all right well i don't have

anything else so return to pod

and can i just press nope nope nope nope

why is t hop out of escape pod

why is t that

i am upset

that is a dumb button why is the button

that when you're piloting a ship

is the same is the one that takes you


and in an escape pod it's the one that

sends you to your death outside

that's stupid

you get extra money if you hijack the

ship take it back makes sense

still frustrating all right

well new liberation available

okay blue stations want to go

independent like us they need help you

can choose one to send your support to

defect your missions

okay so these will give me different

things so defector

let's see so that's a new agent

Watch video from 27:00 - 30:00

oh here we go we'll make rechargeable

glitch traps permanently available in

our shops

aussie gives money and extra money to

all starting characters

let's see so these are different

different characters

i'd like to unlock tech

i'm not really sure which tech i'd like

to unlock

well there's the visitor

swapper long range glitch traps do we

not have a rechargeable


well which direction am i i want to go

extreme range teleporters available in

our shops

might not be a bad idea let's go for

this one rechargeable glitch traps sound

kind of fun

okay so we've we've liberated it rename

to cube outpost 13.

ah let's see and we've unlocked

bloodless missions right because these

get harder

uh let's see so play defector mission

play is janet ceylon who's planning an


audacious mission against the glitches

to demonstrate their loyalty and join us



oh okay so i can restart this at any

time we have a short blade

a self-charging swapper

swap places with people

okay i have a quick fire shotgun an arm

armor piercing short blade

damn it okay so that didn't work restart

defective mission

so oh hi

okay so that didn't work

this looks a little better

okay gunshot oh but it's a quiet gun

okay so i have to asses oh god i have to

assassinate that person

Watch video from 30:00 - 33:00

okay what do we have here we've got a

bunch of dudes

who i am assuming i have to kill yeah

let me see they never really go anywhere

else do they oh they do

okay let's see

nope that didn't work so swapping with

them just

gets me found real quick

oh damn it it's like a guaranteed you're

gonna get spot

situate spotted situation if this is a

bit better

got those okay do i care about these


yeah perfect

uh let's see open cargo crate this has

stealth blanket hides you from all

enemies and centuries in the direction

you're facing

activating it consumes one charge and

steel shield stays for five seconds

okay so i have an invisibility cloak

that's super tacky

i love it all right uh let's get closer

these defector missions are tough

let's see switch when you're about to

get shot interesting point

okay wait hold up oh no that's

that's the way in guy that i have to

assassinate all the way down there


there we go got it


Break into spaceships!
Fly your pod up to any spaceship in the galaxy and dock with its airlock to sneak inside. From there, you've got to sneak up on the crew, outshoot them in slowmo gunfights, or outthink them with clever gadgets. Take missions to steal loot, assassinate VIPs, or rescue friends.

Take your time!
Get out of impossible situations by pausing at any time and taking as long as you need to figure out a clever plan. You have a wide range of gadgets with clever uses, and you can switch, aim and fire them with no time pressure at all, letting you pull off ridiculously cool tricks without needing twitch skills.

Liberate the galaxy!
All your missions get you closer to liberating new space stations from the empires that control them, and this unlocks new gadgets to buy in your shops, and special challenge characters to play.

Emergent gameplay!
Use gadgets like teleporters, stealth shields and subverters to invent your own solutions to tricky situations.

Galactic zoom!
Zoom smoothly from a view of the whole galaxy down to your character sneaking up on guards inside the spaceship you're boarding.

Choose your difficulty!
You choose each mission, ranging from trivially easy to nightmarishly hard. There's also a practice mode where you can try items and tactics with no consequences and instant-restart.

Randomly generated missions!
Each one picks a random combination of guard kit, ship layout, and complications like space battles.

Each life is a new character!
Choose between randomly generated characters with different starting kit, and when you die, play as someone new in the same galaxy.

Personal missions!
Every character has one grand heist to work towards: rescue their brother, steal their gun back, get revenge on their partner's killer.

Modular destruction!
Blow up any part of a ship with breach grenades or fuel barrels. Rip a ship in half. Get sucked into space by the vacuum.

Rescue your friends' characters!
If someone on your friends list gets their character captured, and they aren't able to rescue them, maybe you can! You'll sometimes get a character whose personal goal is to rescue a friend's character. If you manage it, you unlock your friend's character to play as! They don't get it back. They had their chance. It's yours now.

Find your friends' items!
When you retire an accomplished character, you can choose one item to pass on. You get to name it, and both your Steam friends and your own future characters have a chance to find these as loot. Equally, you'll come across items your friends have named.

  1. Ahh, I remember the time I played that game recently. Fun feature: melee weapons can be thrown to create more mayhem. And also if you throw a trap, pause, grab it, and activate it during pause, it'll be thrown activated. Fun exploit, and no grenades!

  2. Heat signature is actually one of my favorite rogue-like due to it's simplicity and ease of entry. The game can get repetitive rather quickly, but it is a great game to pick up and play for a bit.

  3. the most glorious thing in heat signature i've come across, the life-link plus a fast melee weapon since by taking out one life link person the others warp to that area and you can take out everyone in that 2-3 enemy life-link net. feels SOOOO damn good when you pull that off.

  4. One fun thing I love to do to cheese assassination missions is to steal another ship then shoot the ship with the target in it until it's in pieces. It even works with glory missions until a certain tier. (about 4rth tier ones I think they make them missile proof).

  5. Hmmmmmm… .Wander-cam…

    If you're happy doing this, I'll take it, but It'll be a while before I get used to seeing you in the top of the screen and not imagining you as a 14ft tall giant talking just over my shoulder :p

  6. Heat signature seemed too simple when I first started. Then I captured someone by shooting the window out and catching them with the pod. That’s when I fell in love with the versatility.
