Conquering an asteroid and returning it to the owner is a lucrative business. Use what you earn on the field to develop new technologies and purchase new parts, weapons, and items.

Synopsis:

Year 22xx. No new laws of physics have been discovered that allow for Faster-Than-Light travel. However, the development of Nuclear Propulsion and AI Systems allowed humankind to expand its operations to the entire Solar System.

Asteroid Mining, once not more than a dream for some, is now a reality. AI Systems equipped with Artificial General Intelligence carry out most space operations.

These AI Systems could develop their objectives, and often Companies lost control of their colonies.

Both Governments, through regulations, and Companies, through engineering efforts, had attempted to create AI Systems capable of carrying out the mining and exploration tasks without developing AGI. All those attempts failed. The resulting systems were either not intelligent enough or managed to develop AGI over time.

When there is a problem financially worth solving, the market responds. Thus, a new type of Company was born with the only task of returning the colonies that went rogue to their human owners.

You work for one of such Companies.

Initially, owning a simple Gunship and few weapons, you'll complete missions, expand your ship capabilities, and develop and buy more powerful weapons while uncovering the mystery underlying a surge in machine rebellions.

In the last few months, I managed to work more on the game design and some new modes and features. Here is a list of all the major changes and improvements.

New gunship model

The gunship model has been reworked entirely. It now has more of a traditional spaceship look.

Cockpit view

The front view has been replaced by an internal view of the cockpit. It looks nicer, doesn't it?

Multiplayer PvP

The game now has PvP multiplayer! It only offers a deathmatch mode at the moment. There are two maps, and up to 8 players can play on the same map. Keep in mind that the mode is in pre-alpha stage. Major issues are to be expected.

Here is a video of a play test match.

VR Mode

A new VR mode will be added soon. It will support SteamVR with mouse & keyboard controls.



And much more

I improved a lot more visual aspects, like the HUD and post-processing. I redesigned some maps, improved general performances, tuned the gameplay and more! If you'd like to try it, an Early Access version is available on Steam here (Or you can just wishlist the game if interested).
