    Website reworked

    05/11/2012

    Still alive

    Hello there, it has been a while. But I am making good progress.

    I did a little rework of the website, moved the gallery to imgur and rewrote the 'About' section to sound less boring. I hope you all enjoy it!

    I am now currently working on the generator for the space ships, you can view the first results here. The ships are basically built up from smaller parts, to make repetition possible and to make the ships look less chaotic and more constructed. As soon as I have a version of the generator that produces ships in a way that I like, I will publish the next version of the game.

    So stay tuned!

    The first demo of the game is out. Check the Downloads section for the installer!

    After 8 months of development, the first playable demo is now out.
    I want to emphasize that this version of the game is in a very early stage and far from finished. I will be releasing regular updates with further features and fixes, also based on your feedback. Tell me if you like or don't like something, it will only improve the game.
    The purpose of the release of this early version is to show the players the basics of the game and to improve the game based on the feedback of the players.

    The website is now online and ready!

    Check out the Gallery to get a better image of how the game will be looking like.
    In the About section you will find some information about me and the development status of the game, as well as my bigger picture of what the game will become as development goes on.
    If you have any questions about me or the game, or if you have any suggestions for features you don't want to miss in the game, you can send me an Email. I'll read them all and I'll respond as soon as I can.
