Sector Six is under attack, the Machines, massive automatic spaceships are destroying everything! No weapon can stop the Machines, the only hope is the Elder Mechanism, an ancient device of the mighty Almadi civilization, who colonized Sector Six a long time ago.

You take the role of the Negati Armada's best fighter, who, due to a dramatic chain of events receives the Elder Mechanism. Go on an epic journey across the mysterious Sector, develop your spaceship, activate the Elder Mechanism and defeat the Machines, before it's too late!

Sector Six is an elegant and innovative RPG/shoot 'em up hybrid.

The core feature of Sector Six is the unique spaceship building from randomly generated parts, which can be obtained by destroying enemies - the minions of the Machines.

Other key features are:

  • Story-driven missions including cutscenes and dialog
  • Unique silhouette art style
  • Complex combat system
  • Deep character customization
  • Millions of randomly generated items

The game is still under development, upcoming updates will further enhance the gameplay experience!

Last two weeks I've lost a lot of development time because my PC broke down few times.
But now my PC is back to being a functioning game development device and I'm happy to announce that Sector Six is going to be updated next week!

Next update features few neat graphical improvements, a possible fix to dreadful inventory glitch, and a good dose of new content!

After hearing few complaints about the lack of content, I have put everything aside and made two new region missions - time siege and gauntlet!

Time siege is about destroying a siege unit as fast as possible!
This mission is the first Sector Six mission that has a performance-based reward.
The faster you will destroy a siege unit, the better reward you will get at the end of the mission.
Getting to a siege unit is not easy - you will have to defeat each of current Sector Six enemies - from swarming to an apparition.
Time siege mission will always generate the same enemies in the same order, so the outcome of the mission is completely based on your skill and spaceship.

Gauntlet is similar to good old kill mission in a way that during it, you'll get to kill a certain amount of enemies.
The catch is that during a gauntlet mission, you will not be able to repair your spaceship!
All damage received is permanent.
The reward is proportional to the challenge - you will receive extant part if you will manage to survive!

I was also meant to do a heroic gauntlet mission, but because my PC broke, I decided to add that with some other update.
I want to keep the gaps between updates as small as possible.

There's not much to say about the graphical changes - backgrounds, region entering/leaving and the main menu are simply better now!

So, that's all for this echo, I hope you guys are excited about the update as much as I am!

Until next time!

The controls feel a little clunky, so I'm looking forward to any changes in that matter. Other than that, the aesthetics are so cool, and the overall execution is pretty good.

im really looking forward for the full game.

there's something i've noticed during Colony Seeker fights. when it charges forward and u get in his way, it starts to constantly bashing u until u die. the controls arent working, so u cant step aside anymore.

also, if u fly all the way back, when fighting it, it will go off-screen, leaving u in empty space with nothing to do.

Gives you time to reassert your bearings. Useful, I'd say.

have you thought of adding game pad compatibility?

Update: I got suggestion to make a co-op mode in Sector Six! I like this idea a lot, imagine building two spaceships and teamwork while fighting bosses! So I might implement controller support just to make co-op possible.

Of course, I'll need for people to support Sector Six to make this happen, because making co-op mode in Sector Six is as hard as to make whole new game.

Yes, but I don't think Sector Six will ever support game pads.

I think you can only mod game that has mod support. Which leads to same problem, because Sector Six will not have mod support. But I might be wrong, I don't know much about modding.

And to be honest, I don't like mods. I tried to add them to few games, but it only ruined them.

Well, I can understand mods that fix game flaws, but only those mods. Others are horrible =]

Well, to force a game pad on a game that doesn't have support for gamepads, you don't need to mod it. Instead, it typically involves some sort of keyhooking so, for instance, "R1" emulates the left mouse button, so on and so forth, but such things also require the user to configure all of which button to which key, and do fine tuning as well, (Deadzones, anti-deadzones, sensitivity, axis switching/rotation etc) so, yeah. There are special programs you can find for this, such as X360CE, JoyToKey, Motioninjoy, and Xpadder, among others.

If you do decide to use one of these, without any personal tuning pertaining to your specific gamepad, using a gamepad would be even MORE clunky than using the keyboard itself.

As for modding games that don't have mod support, that's kind of complicated, because it comes down to "at what point do we cross the line from modding to cheating" when modding that type of game, because usually it's more along the lines of hooking to alter specific hex/floating point values.
