About the Game

Procedurally Generated Galaxy

All the content in the game is procedurally generated while the player explores. Wherever you go, you will always find new places, ships and factions.

Procedural Space Ships and Stations

Space ships and stations in Avorion are procedurally generated, based on styles. Different ships that have the same style as a basis will resemble one another.

Space Sandbox - Explore, Build, Trade, Wage Wars

You're free to do everything you want to: Explore, mine, trade, help others, build up an army, go to war, be a pirate, raid helpless freighters. Do whatever suits your playstyle!

Build Your Own Ship - Or Fleet

Creative Freedom

Players can either build their ships themselves or let them be generated by the game. Blocks can be arbitrarily scaled and ships have no maximum size limit, so go ahead and build that large battleship you've always dreamed of!

    About the Team

    Konstantin 'koonschi' Kronfeldner

    Inventor of Avorion, jack of all gamedev trades, coder and driving force of the game. Big fan of c++, Star Wars and heavy metal music. He's the main Avorion game designer, idea maker and in charge of the gameplay development and performance. Nick is pronounced 'konshi', just in case you were wondering.

    Philipp 'Qui_Sum' Erhardt

    Gifted with a calm, analytical mind, he's the one who always knows what to do when things get stuck or out of control. Walking library for all things unix and technical, Philipp is the dev for tools, linux, backend and graphics features. Master of silly puns. He also wrote his own pdf viewer.

    Hannes Kretzer

    Since Hannes has been present for years in the ambient music scene, he's the perfect choice for the composer of Avorion's music. Our personal musical expert, lover of cookies and permanent source of positive energy.


    History

    Konstantin developed Avorion from scratch for over four years as a hobby. Several free demos were released over the first years and a community formed around the game.

    Two years into the development, Konstantin met Hannes, who turned out to be a perfect fit for the music composer of Avorion, and who was happy to provide his skills for the game.

    After a year of radio silence, where some really urgent works of refactoring, reworking, tinkering and graphical enhancements had to be done, a trailer was made and the game was put on Steam Greenlight in December 2015. Only 9 days later the game was greenlit.

    After the positive reception on Steam Greenlight and determined to take the game to the next level, the former one-man-team was extended by a new member: Philipp, aka. Qui_Sum.

    After sorting things out, the team will now be working towards the first real release of the game.
