Explore space DRM-free with Helium Rain now available on GOG

By - | Views: 7,316

Free from the restrictions of planet Earth, the space exploration, trading and action game 'Helium Rain' from Deimos Games has officially become DRM free on GOG.

It has some of the most striking visuals I've seen in a space game for a while, seriously! Some of the scenery is breathtaking. The gameplay is pretty good too, performance is great in my testing as well.

Features:

  • 13 playable ships with weapon and engine upgrades
    Build and fly fleets of fighters, bombers, cargos, corvettes or capital ships. Buy new engines and weapons.
  • Fast-paced combat with Newtonian flight, localized damage and joystick support
    There is no speed limit in Helium Rain. You can fly at half a mile a second while aiming backwards. Aim for critical systems in order to disable ships, kill their crew or capture targets, and don't fly into asteroids.
  • Complex economy model
    Take advantage of a complex simulation of space trade to be the most competitive company.
  • A planetary system to explore
    Explore around 25 sectors orbiting the gas giant Nema and its moons.
  • Procedural contracts, world exploration, technology upgrades
    Pick contracts and build your empire to become the largest company.
  • Quick-action skirmish mode
    Setup your fleet, pick an opponent and go into fighting action right away!  

I've had a lot of fun with it, especially since they added in the skirmish mode! Outside of that, it's pretty relaxing I've found.

Find it on GOG. It's also on Steam and itch.io.

Fantastic! I already have it on Steam, so here's hoping Helium Rain will make it to the GOG Reclaim Your Game thing. :)

Seriously, this is an excellent title, and you have any remote interest in the genre, you should buy it!

Looks pretty sweet to me.

Seems to be a bit of a misunderstanding:

The steam version was already DRM-Free

Thou, it's good to have the devs get into GOG.
