This game is a what would happen if you mixed the good old narrative RPG and the as good and as old ''trading card game'' and put a science-fiction tag on it.
You play as a new captain of the Terran Imperial Navy that get tasked with the mission to track and destroy the Calamity, a monstrous spaceship filled with pirate. The mission goes awry and you find yourself bound into slavery inside the ship with half you crew killed...
But hope still persist and, with some luck, you may find a way to turn the situation into something good...
Or maybe will you be filled with despair as you should?
My name is François (simply call me Frank) and I am the lead developer of Becoming Captain.
Our team, Le Havre Creation, is made of four talented people that work tirelessly on this project to make it as wonderful as can be. So, today I am here on behalf of the team to tell you what is the current state of Becoming Captain, where we are currently and where we are heading.
We have been working on Becoming Captain (BC) for the last two years before posting anything here on Indie DB. The game is currently in an odd state where most of the pieces are falling into places and where we can't make anybody play it... but we know it is nearly working. The last two years have been rough, but also exciting and really delightful! We sure learned a lot while developing this game!
The major hurdle was the IA for the combat system. This is where most of the coding time went. Last winter, we succeeded in producing a playable prototype, but we decided to make a V.2 of our IA so that everything is more fluid and dynamic for the players. This V.2 is nearly finished and when it will be, we will be putting everything back together with our new artworks and assemble another playable version.
We are so glad to finally show some bits and pieces of our work to you folks! It has been an adventure and there is still a lot of work to be done!
So now, folks, do you have any question about what is our game and what it will become?
Don't be shy! :)
