DarkStation
3 January 2014
  • Conclusion: Redshirt is an incredibly fun and interesting game mired in small problems that prohibit it from becoming a must buy. The social science behind making characters like you and working your way up the food chain is fun and addicting, but the sometimes unwieldy interface and tense while ugly as well as...

Redshirt Preview

  • Summary: Sadly, I don’t know if my sleep-your-way-to-the-top strategy will actually pay off in the end. Redshirt isn’t complete yet, so I couldn’t progress all the way through. I’ve enjoyed what I got to play immensely, though, and can’t wait for the final product.

  • Conclusion: If you spend time reading all the jokes or the endlessly repeating messages and leave your escape until the last minute Redshirt could last you up to 5 hours. Theoretically there’s replay value with several different ways of winning to try out, but it all gets so repetitive I can’t imagine I’d ever...

IGN

  • Summary: Redshirt is deeper than its Star Trek parody presentation might appear, but it's not quite deep enough.

  • Cons: Little challenge, Buggy

  • Summary: Of course, that’s the joke – social networks are echo-chambers, Likes are currency, and online relationships can be fickle. I get it. But the game is trapped between satirising its shallow subject matter and needing to meet you halfway in the creation of its fantasy.

Redshirt Review (PC)

Softpedia
23 November 2013
  • Excerpt: But, then again, I never played something as weird, funny and captivating as Redshirt. Redshirt, as the name implies, draws much of its visual and thematic inspiration from Star Trek, but this is a vision of the far future that would probably make the members of the Federation cringe because it’s...
  • Pros: + Solid gameplay, + Impressive social network commentary, + Star Trek theme
  • Cons: - Limited replayability, - Some unclear mechanics

Redshirt Review (Steam/PC)

gamingshogun.com
22 November 2013
  • Excerpt: Any fan or even casual viewer of the Star Trek universe knows the cardinal rule: it’s never good to be the “Redshirt”. The Redshirt is that Star Fleet employee who we generally never learn the name of when they go on away-missions and we usually see die at the first sign of phaser fire or strange...

Relationship status: it's complicated.

GameSpot
21 November 2013
  • Summary: In the future, social networking is still a big deal. It's mandatory, in fact. Your account on Spacebook, the proprietary social network of space station Megalodon-9, doesn't just let you share your life; it dictates it.
  • Pros: Funny sci-fi humor, Clever relationship-based gameplay
  • Cons: Activities become rote over time, Randomization can lead to frustration

Redshirt review

Eurogamer

  • Conclusion: For all its charm and ambition, Redshirt can't even come close to realising that goal, and inevitably ends up as a fairly flat and repetitive exercise in meaningless random text and mindless icon clicking.
