I develop this game alone in my free time. It was always my dream to work as a game developer but in the end I become an enterprise software developer. Please help to accomplish my dream by voting for my game on Steam Greenlight.
About the Game
DESIGN OR DIE takes place in the not so distant future of our solar system. In this game, space travel has already become part of our life. Several hundred million people live on distant planets and space stations. Our protagonist is a freelancer who takes on any kind of job, so he will not starve to death at the end of the day.
Single player missions
Nowadays, there are hundreds of great games focusing on space expedition, but this one differs from the most of them as it is designed to be a level based, single player game. On each level, you can prove your ability by designing a good ship and defeat the given objectives. Furthermore, you can collect some credits and you can spend them to improve the parts of your ship.
Some levels might have enemies so you will need heavy weaponry to survive. On other levels however, these weapons could lead you to your doom, since a weapon means not just protection, but it also adds extra mass to your ship. So, if you have to fight the gravity of a gas giant, you will probably be better off with a faster and lighter ship.
Destructible modular ships
Even the strongest ships have their weak points, so your duty is to find them, hit them hard, and thus you can defeat them. The difference in size does not always matter.
Every ship in this game is made of blocks so you can lose a part of your ship, an engine or a weapon, if you get hit by the enemy or an asteroid.
There are also important parts of a ship like batteries and power plants, without which it will not work. Do not forget to place them somewhere where they would not be hit by the enemy.
Do you have to go through a field of asteroids? Do not worry, you can easily cut through them with your lasers. But you can also use them to hide from enemy fire.
