This Means Warp is an online co-op spaceship management roguelite game. Explore a procedurally generated universe in real-time, upgrade your ship, battle increasingly dangerous enemies, and adapt your strategies in a constantly changing and challenging fight for survival. Steam page.


Outlier was founded in 2018, with creators Paul Froggatt and Matt Rathbun lamenting the lack of challenging and strategic co-op gaming experiences.


Development on This Means Warp began shortly thereafter, with the game combining the high-risk strategy of turn-based roguelites with the adrenaline and pace of real-time co-op games.

An early build of the game was revealed in mid-2020, with thousands of players applying to participate in the first alpha playtest in September 2020. This Means Warp continues to grow, with a beta playtest in July 2021 and targeted release in early 2022.
