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. More details are available at


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 continued to grow, with a beta playtest in July 2021 and Early Access on March 17th 2022. The game's 1.0 release on PC was on May 4th 2023 and console release is scheduled for later in 2023.
