An indie game project with the goal of reviving our favorite game type, the epic space adventure! By mixing favorite aspects of classics like StarFlight, Star Control, SunDog, Universe, and Tradewars, we hope to bring what we loved as kids to the current generation. Quirky aliens, arcade space battles, planetary mining, and adventure around the galaxy -- should keep us busy developing for a while. The project is a family affair, Wife on art, son on music, and code-monkeying by me. We are currently in early development for the PC,Mac,Linux platforms... XboxOne or PS4 if we can swing it.
We are feeling good!!!! We have hit a major milestone for StarDiver. We now have 20 alien races and 20 alien ships designed and art assets ready for animation and implementation.
Now for the fun part -- getting them all in-game and FUN! Each ship will be completely unique from the way it controls to the weapons at it's disposal. More combat videos coming soon. I suspect we will add another 5-10 alien races and ships along the way, but it feels great to have hit our target minimum needed to fill out of universe and story arc.
This was the second of three goals prior to launching our Kickstart and Greenlight campaigns. Last up is planetary mining and we should have all the core pieces ready to make a pretty stellar promo video to capture the heart of what we are making here.
