We (my brother and I) are a small indie studio (< 4 people) working on a new strategy game. We put our project, Void Eclipse, up on Kickstarter last week and I wanted to share it with this community. Void Eclipse is a blend of genres for fans of turn-based 4X empire building, story-driven single-player campaign, and card battling strategy. Players explore a universe of unique planets and star systems to discover the origin of the android protagonist, interacting with NPCs and saving an alien empire faced with a mysterious threat. Characters in Void Eclipse are represented in battle as 3D animated cards in tactical, turn-based combat. We take full advantage of the Unreal Engine to provide our impressive visuals and special effects. I'd be happy to answer questions folks might have about the game, so speak up! We recently did a short Q&A with eXplorminate too. Check out our Kickstarter and give us your feedback, we're planning to do a beta run next year and would love to have some strategy fans on board helping us.
Has anybody else played this yet? I saw a single article on RPS a few months ago and grabbed the free download, but since then I've seen very little fanfare over the project. The gist is that you're exploring a tiny star system in your own personal space ship. Full Newtonian physics is in effect, and you can land on the different little odd-ball planets and slowly unravel this story about this alien race. You can walk around inside your little ship, and have to step outside to repair it if you bump into too many things. There's also a cool probe tool that you can launch into space and then hit a button to snap pictures from it. I won't give too much more away, but it's an amazing and confident exercise in non-linear storytelling combined with some cool mechanics that lead to emergent situations. http://outerwilds.com/
