Game developers need your help to finish their sci-fi game - DamianDivine - Oct 19, 2012 04:36 PM
My name is Anti A. Danilevski and I'm making video games. Glad to meet you all!
We're making a 3D space adventure/ARPG in hard sci-fi genre, with real-time combat. It's a mix of the spirits of such games as Star Control, Elite, and Space Rangers. It has a simple click-n-go controls, comparable to Dark Orbit and excellent, up-to-date three-dimensional graphics somehow comparable to Eve Online.
There are no games like this on iPads existing now (GOF is a hardcore sim, while Divine Space is a massive game, but with very simple controls that anyone can play).
When I'm saying 'good graphics', I actually means this:
The action of the game takes place in a universe resembling our real world as much as possible: stars are located just where they actually are. We had to spend several months developing actual astronomical data and building a universe based on them. After playing it, you will know once and for all where the sun is located in our corner of the universe, which stars are closest to us, what their spectral classes are, planets... and much more.
Our full 3D starmap:
Beside that, we have a deep scenario and world design (it's almost USP nowadays). We built our scenario based on current research. It's somewhat a prediction of the possible future - we are developing an educative game.
And there are few screenshots from the game:
Why I'm here, just registered and already posting this? There are two reasons:
First, I'm gathering feedback and opinions. This really helps me to make a better game and realize if something is wrong. Thanks to some people I've already made few corrections. I've just joined, but that doesn't mean I'll throw my post and disappear.
Second, we are now on Kickstarter, and this is where I need your backing, if you want to play a game like this. We need support of a strong community to make this game, otherwise it won't see the light.
I'm not going to give you any links because I, myself, hate spam. Besides, I and have a really bad experience with it - at the beginning I was naive enough to create big beautiful threads with many pictures and videos, information... good read, quick bans.
So, I ask permission to share link to our campaign.
If not allowed, well - we can simply discuss our game and development!
