Hi Space Pirates!


This might be the final pre alpha before i implement the final story and content.
I actually already started with the help of a writer and i will update you as soon as the story and universe is fleshed out.

So what is new in this version?
The biggest feature is a new hull system.
I started to ask myself what i like best in this game while i was fixing issues.
Simple answer: blowing stuff up and discovering secrets. I also wanted the game world to be even more alive. I asked myself: What if i could blow up every wall...and not just certain ones which are too obvious anyways. Something that fascinated me in the Red Faction series.
You want to freak out? Well...do it!

"Bombini..." you may ask "...but what about the level design, focus and pacing?"
Well there are still walls with a steel core you cant blow up (the comment your actions with a nice "ting" sound) but most of the walls can be blown up.
The trick...every vessel has now a health percentage (generated from a certain number of certain tiles and where they are) which i call "hull" and is grouped into four states.
A certain amount of "hull" is deducted everytime you blow something up.

Those are the states a vessel can have:

  • Green/blue: Minor damage but all fine
  • Orange: Spawns fire and tiny tile explosions once in a while (level shales once in a while)
  • Red: Spawn bigger tile explosions (level shakes constantly)
  • Hull has 0%: Ship will explode gradually


BlowingUpWalls

I added assembly lines which crafts items to for example robots:

robota
And advenced the flamer which can now burn through a lot more lements

I also updated the contract system although all contract levels are still placeholder or not existing.

Try the PC version:

Space Pirate (version 0.411) PC

...or the MAC version:

Now some suggestions I enjoyed the game but it would be nice if they put more special effects and would improve the artificial intelligence for enemies to move more and that to shoot in various directions with the keyboard

Thanks for the feedback!
I plan to work on this and will keep you updated.
Regarding effects: you want particles, flashes, blood and son on?
Cheers!
