Beastmancer in Greenlight!

News

Hi

After around 5 months of work, I finally reached the moment to put my little game in Greenlight. Its not my first experience with it but I still feel pretty tense and excited. I'm a one man dev with no publisher, marketing or crowdfunding support so if you want to help me please consider visiting my Greenlight page and voting:

More Videos!

I recently updated my Greenlight trailer, please check it is only 46 seconds:

I also made an unedited pre-alpha gameplay video, its 5 minutes long but I think you'll like it so please give it a try:

If this player is too slow you can see the videos in my Youtube channel: Youtube.com

As you can see in the gameplay video I implemented music and sound fx for a lot of things (of course, there's a lot of work to do in that area but we are barely starting). I also made some minor features like rewards after defeating an enemy beastmancer... (sigh) I hope to be soon done with Greenlight so I can focus in working hard because now it starts the serious work: content and dialogue creation and polishing.

More Progress

Of course, work continues. Recently VozGris, a freelancer artist I hired sent me the female avatar I asked:

Female avatar


Looking good!

Well, that's it for the moment. I know this is a short article but please check the videos because I had to work a lot in making them.

Please consider voting, that really helps me.

Regards,

Jorge

Similarity shouldn't be in issue. What they should focus on instead, is what 'you' as the dev can add into the game. Innovation and exploration on new idea's and mechanics. Every game dev in the past started by creating what they thought was fun, you should be granted that same measure of freedom. Good luck Autarca.

Hi

This game seems a good one
It seems to be similar to Nexus the Jupiter Incident rather than Homeworld
I cannot understand why people are complaining that other games might copy Homeworld when i bumped into several space titles that wanna copy Master of Orion ( a particular thing i grew tired of making me almost steer clear of games that promise something along the lines of Master of Orion but with few exceptions of course like the former game i voted before this comment here namely Multiversum )

I like the graphics of Nomad Fleet and i would only agree that it would be good to offer mod support for it in the future unless you are going to expand the game and add DLCs , expansions and stuff to keep it going

I voted you max not just out of my altruistic heart but because i'm into space games a lot too so i hope everything turns out right for you

I'll be honest. As soon as I saw the Homeworld hyperspace jump, and the gameplay inspiration. It somewhat annoyed me. However, I see enough original material here to find this small project interesting. But there are several things that need to be worked on (by order of importance):

1st the game needs a better camera control, is not fluid, too slow and down right annoying to use, I'd sugest you to see how the Homeworld camera works and try to mimic it, considering the fact it works perfectly for it's game.

2nd Sometimes I'd find the UI to just vanish, pretty much preventing me from doing anything worth while.

3rd I think some of the ships and background art are in need of a redesign. They are just ugly. I understand the idea of the ships is for them to be old and clunky, as one would expect from a fleet that had to use century old ships. however you can still have those same elements and still have a good looking, and well designed ship. I also found the backgrounds to be too dark, plus with dark looking ships. it makes it hard to see them. I'd recommend you to ask for / hire an artist's help to fix all of these problems (I'd even offer myself to help, however regardless if you consider my advice and wish to either hire or ask for an artist's help, I am sure you'd find someone else whom's style fits more your own artistic vision of the game).

4th I'd Really recommend not to have the Homeworld hyperspace jump, and instead have an original one. It's like having a light-saber knock off in an non Star Wars title, it just makes you look bad.

asides from these few things. I think you are on an interesting path, I really liked the rpg elements in the game, to negotiate with other races, confront them or avoid fights. plus I completely love this sub-sub-genre of Scifi, of a small fleet trying to survive an overwhelming force like Battle Star Galatica, Homeworld and several others. I'll defently stick around to see where this game is going.

Sorry but no. That and Multiplayer was one of the first features I had to cut in order to make the project achievable.

Well, that's sad. It decreases replayability and fan base.

Mass Effect looked a bit stiff but still pretty great. I'm hyped.

That #DeathStranding trailer was weird, only explanations I can think of right now: nightmare world, hell, twisted reality... I don't know.

When I see a typo in the name of a class despite being called several times I know I can't trust in who code it.
