About This Game

Breathedge is an ironic outer space survival adventure game. Take on the role of a simple guy who just carries his grandpa’s ashes to a galactic funeral and finds himself in the middle of a universal conspiracy.

Welcome to Space

A massive space hearse suffers a wreck in the deep space, leaving the area filled with debris, coffins, dead passengers and yourself. Survive in this interstellar dump, uncover a global conspiracy, save the princess and don’t break your fingers while tapping the keyboard as you travel around the world (keeping your display on for full immersion is advised).

More Flotsam and Jetsam!

It took a long time for our ancestors to develop because they had no duct tape. You have it and you know how to use it. With this magical artifact, you can create a vast variety of useless objects and throw them out the airlock! There are also many useful items to be created, but be careful as this may result in completing the game.

Fix and Decorate

When all the people around you just hover around in the vacuum doing nothing but playing dead, various tools and gears will help you become the worst noisy neighbor ever. Create a unique space station, provide it with oxygen and electricity, install all kinds of equipment from solar panels to hamster farm, and turn it into a real bachelor pad by stuffing it with furniture mixed with all kind of junk.

Honk! Honk!

Yes, you heard that right, it’s your own private car horn! Besides that, you can assemble a small rocket, ride the dead or build a large space shuttle. Transportation helps you move faster, evade obstacles and see the death screen after a head-on collision.

Prologue, Epilogue, and Other Nonsense

Surviving in space is fun, and surviving with a story is even more fun because you can just skip it all to annoy the scriptwriters! Breathedge offers you an intriguing plot with lots of dark jokes, cynical dialogues, an immortal chicken, a mad enemy, as well as badly animated cutscenes and other features of an excellent game.

Imagine if Subnautica was set in space and directed by Monty Python. This is that game.

I really enjoyed the first chapter of this game, it’s truly shaping up to be a masterpiece. I love the story so far, the crafting is on point, and the fact that it has this silly aspect really separates it from the other crafting/survival games out there. Great job on this beautiful game, I only wish I had more chapters to play! I’ll be waiting!

For only having one chapter, *and* being in early access, this sure feels like a finished game. Honestly my only complaints are that tools have a durability when the resources used to make them are seemingly finite, which means careless resource management can result in an unsolvable situation, and that the speed of the voice acting, and things in general could do well to be slowed down a little bit. I felt a bit overwhelmed by how fast the suit was talking at me, so much so I couldn’t appreciate some of the dialogue.

I would absolutely recommend this game. Even in early access, having just been released, it’s already worth the price as is.

I bought this because I REALLY love space games and I also like survival games. I looked at it and thought the comedy was going to be a bit weird and ruin the experience. BOY WAS I WRONG!

This game has the exact balance of hilariously stupid and funny joke games to gut-wrenching thrills of survival games. It seriously is a lot of fun.

The current game only has one chapter that in my opinion is completely finished in EA. I didn’t have a single bug and the only thing I’d say is that at the start it can be a bit overwhealming. But other than that it is more polished and less buggy than a lot of AAA full released games these days. THIS. IS. the pinnacle of what an early access should come on to steam like and the devs deserve A LOT of credit for it, and better yet it only cost me US$12.79 which for what you get at this point in time I would say is WELL worth it.

With such a stable ground that this game has already I cannot wait to see what it will become upon it’s full release.

(P.S. Although you could play the content this game has at the moment numerous times, at this point in time it does not have any real replayability. So if that is the MAIN/ONLY reason you would be looking to buy this, I would probably suggest waiting till the game is full released or closer to it. I will update this review as time goes on)

Early Access Review

Not too long ago, I wrote a review for Subnatuica. In it, I stated that Subnatuica was the greatest survival game ever, with an amazing sountrack, environment, and amount of things to do. I didn’t think I would come across across a game that could go toe-to-toe with it, but I was wrong, very, very wrong. Breathedge has got to be one of the best god damn experiences that the survival genre has to offer. Not only is it fun, but it absolutely HILARIOUS. I’m talking laugh-out-loud, tears-forming-in-your-eyes humor. I don’t know who did the writing for this game, but if you’re reading this right now, I want you to know that I love you and think you deserve every literary award that our species has created. From the moment this game starts up, I had the biggest freakin smile on my face. If you don’t find laughs extruding from your body as you play Breathedge, I’m afraid you have no soul.

Besides the award-winning writing, the game is absolutely goregous. For a title that it’s in early access, Breathedge is extremely pleasant to look at. It also has a nice soundtrack that has a great medium between humorous and calming.

In terms of the gameplay, it really doesn’t differ from 99% of other games in the surivial genre. Gather materials, create items, maintain your hunger, drink water, rest–all of this is standard fare. The one thing I don’t like–and this is the only complaint I have–is your O2 meter. You lose oxygen fairly quickly, which means you’ll be heading back to your ship to replenish it quite a bit. Outside of that, everything else about Breathedge is an absolute joy.

Between this and Subnautica, it’s clear that the survivial genre is in for a plethora of innovation. I can’twait for RedRuins to add more content to this, because quite frankly, this is the type of game that the world needs more of.

As someone who rarely ever finishes games this was ideal for me. Playing it casually, stockpiling supplies and investigating everything I finished it in about five hours.

Great game, no bugs and good humour!

I would echo the comments of others to the developers about slowing down the voice of the suit. I generally found I had to get somewhere safe and then look through the log to see what he’d actually said, same for the other messages.

For Β£12.39 I’m very happy with the game and I’m looking forward to seeing what comes in chapter two.

Beat the game in under 4 hours and I was taking my time. That aside, I really enjoyed the experience and I am looking forward to seeing where Redruins takes this.

I didn’t encounter a single bug, everything ran very smoothly and I had no qualms with the performance.

I laughed out loud a couple times, which is rare for me in a video game so the humor is definitely there.

Plays a lot like Subnautica which is an incredible game, but with just enough differences to make the experience seem relatively new. Thank you for the fun and the great price Redruins.

I love this.

This is gaming 101… humour, fun and visually pleasing.. just as good as subnautica, but less content yet (of course, it took years for subnautica to be where it is now)

You should support this, in stead of a AAA games rehashed for the 253th time, with 15 paid DLC’s and lootboxes.

Not saying it’s as good as Subnautica, but it’s as fun as Subnautica.

Early Access Review

I didn’t know much about this game outside of the premise before playing it for the first time, and I have to say overall, I absolutely loved it and look forward to seeing further development. Keep in mind that it is an early access game that, at the time of writing this review, has only been available for 2 months.

What I enjoyed:
  • The look of the game is striking, unique, and absolutely gorgeous. It feels vast and desolate, and the music that plays while you space walk instills a sense of awe at the sheer scale of your surroundings.
  • It’s a really funny game with a unique humour all of its own. It made me laugh out loud several times at the silliness or ridiculousness of a particular situation or event.
  • The voice acting is really high quality in both English and Russian.
  • So is the music!
  • The inventory system reminds me A LOT of the inventory system in the very early days of the "We Happy Few" builds. Personally, I really like it!
  • There’s a lot of world building at the beginning of the game, it makes you want to keep finding out about this universe you’re playing in.

Observations / suggestions / "in the middle" thoughts:
  • There are heavy soviet themes from your status bars to the menu design to the music that plays in your shuttle, but for some reason I didn’t feel like the player character fit into this. I’m almost certain this is because of the voice acting. While excellent voice acting, I feel like it would have benefited from a more ‘Russian’ feel. Perhaps further in development there will be more that helps this, but overall I don’t feel like it impacts the game in any considerable way. (Playing with Russian audio definitely helps this)
  • The game at the moment is very short and linear. Buying at this point is an investment into the game and a statement of belief in the developers. This isn’t a complete or polished game yet, but it looks like it’s had a lot of work and love put into it until this point. If these developers continue into the future with what they’ve done in the past, this will be a fantastic game.


While I don’t actually feel like these were things that ruined or spoilt my enjoyment of the game, I feel like these are things that definitely need to be worked on just a tiny bit in order to get the most out of the game.
  • At the beginning of the game, your understanding of how to get resources and from where is a little bit of an issue. In particular, the "Handy Scraper" comes up a lot when encountering objects floating around that you think will give you the materials you need. A little bit of extra assistance at the very beginning of the game might help dumbasses like me figure out what to do and where to go. I can see this happening through highlighting or guiding to the initial materials you need, or preferably pointing out the guidebook tab which helps you figure it out, too. Either way, it was about 5 minutes of frustration trying to figure it out for me, that I think could be avoided for other players with a little bit of jiggering.
  • The sudden change in music when going in and out of oxygen-rich environments and space can be a little bit jarring, especially when there’s no door on said oxygen-rich environment.

Overall this was a really fun and pretty short little game, and I’m really excited to see how the mechanics, story, and gameplay progress and develop.

I purchased this game because of it’s overwhelmingly positive reviews, good graphics and general quality, because currently there is no survival game with crafting in open 0 G space and because I deemed this game might reach double it’s current price once it’s better known among a bigger audience.
It does indeed pull off some hilarious jokes, got a decent graphics quality and is really short currently.
I wish there was more serious game content in between the jokes though, there is no real crafting, surviving, learning recipes/blueprints as it is all a linear story and most of the resources you can harvest or gather are only used in a single recipe… in fact the first placeable structure you are able to craft turns out to be namely "Some crap the developers made up" and once you try to place it it drops to the ground and turns out to be only of artistic value…. which did make me laugh, but I wished for some actual serious content, it also makes the jokes more fun when they are placed well in a seriously mindcatching story.

So if the upcoming episodes don’t drift too much into slapstick comedy and actually provide new gameplay mechanics and content, this game will be really good.
