From the developers of Deep Town, Sandship is a factory management game set in a post-apocalyptic sci-fi universe. You control the last remaining sandship: a gigantic, artificially intelligent mega-factory, which roams across the endless deserts of a far-away planet. Noranti One was a highly advanced civilization. After an accident forced your sandship into hibernation, it awoke in a world of ruins. Join us on a journey to rediscover forgotten technologies, forge a better tomorrow through crafting and trade, and fight a vicious cult hellbent on your destruction. Unlock the secrets of this cryptic land onboard your incredible sandship.

Design futuristic factories from the ground up in this free to play adventure. Place devices like synthesizers, chemical mixers, and ice guns in your sandship factory. The more devices you have, the greater your automated productivity. Connect those devices with conveyor belts to craft a wide variety of materials, from copper wires and combustion engines to ancient technology utilizing the mythic power of the overwell. Upgrade your sandship and add bigger factories to get the space you’ll need to produce more complex items. Trade the incredible stuff you make to earn credits, XP and get old crates filled with scientific research from the distant past. This ancient knowledge gives your sandship new abilities, becoming stronger, smarter, and more powerful than she’s been in a long, long time.

Your engineering mentor is Harvey, a tenacious one-eyed cyborg who needs your help to reconnect with his past. Harvey will show you the ropes of sandship engineering as you build and maintain more complex factories on a desert journey. Are you ready to voyage through a mysterious alien desert with many obstacles in your path? The planet is inhabited by an unusual assortment of robots and aliens. Some are friendly and astounded by your sandship. Others are hostile and want to see your sandship destroyed, but you’re not sure why. Complete quests to meet new characters, uncover ancient civilizations, hear campfire stories and learn how this once industrious world crumbled in the distant past.

There’s so much to discover on-board a sandship. Solve factory floor puzzles, then create your own to share with other players. Get creative in the sandbox to try out new setups without using any resources. Build an enigmatic underwell to mine precious resources, but be prepared to defend against hordes of extraterrestrial enemies to collect them. New features and places to explore are added continuously. The universe of Sandship is constantly expanding.

I love this game

I love this game and I honestly hope the developers don’t leave this game in the sand, I have so much fun with factory games and idle games. I wanna see this game continue with more levels and more resources and more complex factory builds honestly tho I just got to level 8 so I haven’t touched the liquids and stuff like that, I really just wanted to make this review to let the developers know that people do enjoy your game, the only bugs and companies that I have are sometimes when you start the game it just puts you into a black screen all you have to do is close the app and reopen but I just want that to be known and I wish that you guys would add puzzles that you guys made I understand the online creation but for the story mission of finish 5 puzzles I already got to where I didn’t know what I was even doing with the resource needed I would really like a developer made puzzles tab and you can use those as a demo and a challenge, overall I’m having so much fun with this game and dumped a inexcusable amount of money into this app but I want it to be know that this is no where near a pay to win game it’s going to take much longer but you won’t be waiting on resources like I am now you’ll be waiting on the money (also please make it more obvious that you could make money) it took me WAY to long to realize the recycler actually made money I thought it was just gonna revert what was made like iron rods turn into iron plates but no it makes you money…

New Update Edit

Love the story and the factory building, is satisfying and interesting. Unfortunately several bugs are INCREDIBLY frustrating, namely the inability to complete contracts (as they sometimes get stuck), and the level 4 underwell pit expands the space inside but doesn’t let you place any more structures, making it impossible to gain everstone with the higher enemy spawns. The in transit and storage menus are too small on the phone and it’s difficult/near impossible to scroll or drag resources around. Without these few issues this game would easily be 5 stars, I’ve been playing a long time and you’ve got a great thing going. Keep up the work devs! You made a great product, it just needs some love.

Edit: The newest update is fantastic. Splitting up individual storage limits for each resource was a great idea, though it does mean you have to spend credits to increase those individual caps. However, being able to drag the transit and storage box out and maximize it to see each of the mentioned resource storage caps makes it so much easier to see what you have. It also seems as if the contract bugs have been fixed! There are still some minor crashing and optimization issues, but I love that you guys are still working so hard on this game. I’ve updated my rating to 5 stars.

Excellent until higher levels

I’ve played this game for about 5 months now and it is one of my favorite mobile games ever. I love the way it’s structured, with both contacts and objectives being different styles of goals to complete, and it has a good story to follow. It always feels like you’re expanding by unlocking some new technology or finding some new optimized way to produce something. The guidance for how to make things is very good and helpful up until level 18-19 when instructions for the oil and ink industry are virtually non existent. I also feel like the objectives “complete 10 contracts” become a bit repetitive after doing it 4 or 5 times. My final complaint is that you need to be level 22 in order to upgrade your Sandship the final time. But the game caps your experience at level 20! It feels like a beautiful game until level 18 or so when there seem to be a few holes and it feels generally unpolished for the last few machines/technologies.
Minor endgame issues aside, this is one of the best mobile games I’ve played in YEARS and I’m extremely happy with it. It’s kept me engaged for 5 ish months now and I am very impressed with how few ads there were. I’ve recommended it to a few friends and they seem to be enjoying it too. Thank you Rockbite!
