this is pure game, no fluff, just pure gameplay at its finest. truely enjoyed the demo and look forward to seeing what you guys do with this concept.

note that i found the defensive trees not required to win the demo. just breed heaps of fighters on rich soil

Pretty fun game, it just felt too slow for me,
Also was intersesting to have pretty much all my asteroids be attacked one by one by a army of 400 LOL, I didn't think the AI was smart enough to gather a massive attack :O

But really though, I wish it had a speed up button in some situations :)

I like this alot. Simple strategy yet still bring unique situations and possibilities. Crisp and clean graphics that run smoothly. Keep up development, this is looking really good.

Are you planning multi-player capability?

This game is excellent. There are a few things that need to be worked out, won't go into detail here, but so far it's awesome.

Can't wait to see what else happens with the game. ^_^
Great job!

Awesome demo. All it needs now is multiplayer and touchscreen support. Seriously. The gameplay and interface would be perfect for play on a Microsoft Surface or similar touchscreen.

Thanks guys/gals! I have to say I am really chuffed by the great responses that have come in. I will post some more info on the game and our plans soon, including comments on the moddability (is that a word?) of the game. The game is still in development and has several features and mechanics still to be added, as well as aditional content, so the current demo is not without its flaws. We make sure we look at all feedback though so your comments, critical or praising both, are all welcome and help us make the game better.

I want an Hotkey for selecting all Seeds of an Asteriod.

Although this would be nice, because each asteroid has a difference range, having a hotkey would be useless since half of your seedlings cannot get to where you want them anyways.

If you were referring to sending all possibly seedlings to the same location, of course, if not, sorry I misunderstood. :D

i meant all seeds of a single asteriod. a comfortable hotkey instead of a loooooong right click.

To select every seed just left click on the astroid and drag them where you want them to go.

I've been absolutely addicted to this game ever since I read about it on IndieGames about a year ago. The first versions we're pretty stellar in my opinion, offered vast gameplay, and it felt like I was playing Sins of Solar Empire, except not so fail.

For a while, things got dicey in my opinion with their builds, and adding controversial defense trees. But a lot of balance changes have been made that make it as fun as the first iterations, and on top of that, the new art additions make it all that more enjoyable.

I really love this. But I thought of something that would make it even better.. ability to flag positions for every asteroid, so that when new units spawn they fly directly to the place you want. this way you dont have to click so much when you need a big attack and gather units from many asteroids at once.

I'm looking forward to seeing new maps :)

I was playing on Level 4 and completely owned the entire asteroid belt but it never said I won.

However, I found out that there is a rough 850 limit on an asteroid. ^_^

It's awesome, great job guys, I played it over 3 hours and I still can't get enough of it :P it's a great, simple and concept.

I don't know if this is because of my PC (tho it shouldn't) but after 40 minutes or so of continuous play it starts stuttering also on level 4 I think it was the sound of the core of the asteroid is present even when I zoom out and it's a lot louder than the music.

As for new content:
-maybe you can upgrade those seeds that go into the ground (besides the trees or what they're suppose to be) or make them grow with time, into flowers, for protection (projectiles) or some kind of force field for the asteroid? don't really know, maybe a force field might be too much :P
-some new shapes of seeds
-different types of attacks for the seeds, not only lasers

I don't really know if those ideas are worth it/possible, but it would be great with more variety :).

hey dudes, This game rocks and I know this is a Work In Progress but I have an idea for a mod maybe Battlestar galactica or a WW2 mod? IU am just spit-balling as i have no modding talent/knowledge.
*Btw, when I say ww2 mod I mean with spitfires ect. just to prevent any confusion.

Love this game...but it should be made for multiplay too.
Just adding one or two players would be nice.

A map editor and a feature that randomly generates maps based on small, medium, and large criteria would be a great addition to this game. Who knows, maybe even one or two more units if you feel up for it.

i think an option to continue a level after completion would be good.

level 3 i only had about half of the asteroids, and hadn't conquered the large asteroid at the bottom, i thought that was what i was supposed to defeat, apparently not.
