    Let's Play Heat Signature [Roguelike Roulette] – PC Gameplay Part 1 – Amateur Space Marauder

    Please login to search this video.

    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.
