Salvation Prophecy is a space epic. Four warring factions battle over control of the known galaxy. Space stations and planet colonies endure constant assault. You begin your journey as a soldier recruit. Through intense planet and space battle, your combat skills will be put to a grim test. Success is rewarded with powerful skills, combat gear, and ship upgrades, and you may rise in rank to become commander of your faction. Lurking in the dark recesses of the universe is a threat foreseen by an apocalyptic prophecy. A danger far greater than mankind's endless battles. The pursuit of the prophecy leads through distant alien worlds with deadly creatures and untold secrets. A chance for redemption, if only we find our way through that dark hour.

this game was nice first invasion as a human landed charged the enemy positions listening to legacy by Eminem it was epic just 3 requests

- can you make an option to increase the number of units
- add more weapons because we are kind of limited to certain tactics
- add a first person view it always makes a game so much more immerse

all this would make the game go from a 9.5/10 to a 15/10
thanks for such a great game great job you deserve a few awards for this piece of art

Any way we get steam cd keys by chance for purchasing here? I prefer to keep the main games on one account but I had to get SP here instead of waiting...

If you need funding for an expansion after this gets greenlit, I suggest trying out on KickStarter if it's not already mentioned. This game is neat, and I don't see why it shouldn't get the funding.

Hey Hamish -
Wow thanks! For sure, I really enjoy discussing the design and gameplay of Salvation Prophecy (or any game) with people. The quality of conversation here on Desura is particularly good. For whatever reason, Desura seems to attract very smart and very cool folks.

I see from your gamingonlinux. profile that you're from Alberta. I made Salvation Prophecy while living a little further east on the prairies - Manitoba and Saskatchewan. Go Canada! :)

Yeah, I noticed that it said you were based in Canada. Nice to see the Indie scene here heating up over the past few years.

I hear what you're saying, megaflux.

I learned a ton, both design and technically, from making Salvation Prophecy. It is an unusual combination of space sim / shooter / action-RPG / strategy, and getting the pieces to fit together just right was a huge challenge. There weren't many other similar games to model the design after.

There's a few design aspects I think I could nail better the second time around. Agreed, there are a bunch of core components I could reuse and expand on. But there are also a few baseline design decisions I'd like to change as well. Also, I'd love to do a much bigger universe, and include much better modding support.

Either way, if I am in a financial position to keep working on big complicated space epics, it won't be to add piddily little DLCs. :)

I've played through the game once, and I have to say it really exceeded my expectations. Although the game suffers a bit from repetition, I feel like it's really got a good tempo; let me explain what I mean by tempo. There's always something to do, and you're (until near the end) always getting stronger in some way. The best way I could describe it is to draw comparisons to Pirates!. New mission types are introduced at a reasonable pace and keep the game interesting. Maybe you'll start out doing…

@bartwerf Don't force it. Use the time to do something else constructive, or just take a day off. Option 2: Caffeine megadose.

@Methanoid Cool.

@Methanoid James - did you get this worked out? There's a pinned thread on retrieving steam keys in the Salvation Prophecy steam forums.

Aug 13 2014, 9:11pm

Weird - Steam is putting "Goat Simulator" in the "more like this" list for Salvation Prophecy. Are they space goats?

Jun 27 2014, 12:41am

@SeanMobsby Thanks Seán. :)

@KarinESkoog Quite likely it was games. Over mugs of mead.

May 16 2014, 2:19pm

@KarinESkoog That's great! I know "skog" means forest, and "lind" is a certain type of tree. Yep, I've played both.
