XXII century. Solar system.
Discovery of rare-earth minerals in Jupiter's asteroid belt started a new Gold Rush. You are a desperate adventurer who decides to leave Earth for the asteroid belt mining crusade.
Now you have to choose your own way: become a prospector, maintain law and order, explore the space, be a merchant or cruel space pirate. Build up your guild and own space station or join to one of the strongest factions. The choice is yours!
Project Amalthea is a top-down online sci-fi game with mostly arcade style controls, blazing fast battles and unrestricted PvP. The action takes place near the Jupiter's moon Amalthea, center for a new Gold Rush in the asteroid belt. Game is developed by RunServer studio and now in invite-only alpha testing stage. During the development we decided to shift the focus from MMORPG to MOBA game style, so right now you can only compete with another players in PVP Battleground battles. MMO game is planned to release in 2022.
Death is not the end. In this world every station has a cloning facility.
But it comes at a price: you die - you lose all your stuff! Carefully choose routes and beware of other players. Take advantage of stealth and camouflage techniques if you care of your belongings. Seek company for protection and join your efforts for various battleground battles!

tremendous fortune always go hand in hand. Start as an lone adventurer and then choose to become a pirate or a noble corvette captain in an endless war against cruelty of huge corporations.

With today's update we made a drastic change in Project Amalthea look and feel: we decided to make everything brighter and may be even over-saturated:
That's how it look in static picture:
When we just started the game was dark. Dark backgrounds, dark scenery, dark storyline. But later on all the quests moved to the brighter side, NPCs got some jokes and whole environment became more or less colorful. Except for the mostly occluded background, dark asteroids and the whole idea to live in post-quarantine worlds in the imminent threat of unknown disease spreading around Jupiter asteroid belt colony.
And now we're moving on and preparing to end the quarantine. Transport routes are more or less open, pilots are no more grounded and in a few weeks access to the outer world will be restored. So hang on for upcoming DLC coming before the holidays - Project Amalthea: Campaign! DLC will introduce two major space stations 56 new quests, lots of mobiles, trade goods and activities in the Amalthea 2 station vicinity.
But the new lighting goes live today!
Other changes in patch 1.2.394:
There is a new co-op map in Project Amalthea taking us back to 90's and pixel graphics. Let's take a look!
Our game evolves faster than we though! Just after a week from release we've added a new dungeon and lot of new features to the game.
We are ready to announce Project Amalthea: Battlegrounds release on October 12, 8AM California Time!
