Strike Suit Infinity, a score-chasing spin-off from Strike Suit Zero, has been announced by series developer Born Ready Games.
The standalone title offers wave-based challenges and online leaderboards for fans of the original game's space mech combat.
Infinity is due to launch via Steam on 30th April, priced Ł4.99/€5.99.
Strike Suit Zero launched for PC in January after a successful Kickstarter campaign. The project raised $174,804 - nearly $75k more than its $100,000 goal, but fared less well with critics.
"Some simple patches could improve much of Strike Suit Zero, and perhaps they will," Rich Stanton wrote in Eurogamer's 3/10 Strike Suit Zero review. "But the honest truth is I had an absolutely miserable time playing this."
Console versions of Strike Suit Zero are planned for later in 2013. The Heroes of the Fleet mission pack is also on the way for PC.
