Darkmatter Development was originally founded in 2006 specifically to develop Star Apocalypse. Currently, we work on several games at the same time, while also working on Star Apocalypse.

We offer programs for tutoring young coders, teaching them how to make games. We do this through letting them slowly undertake more and more important game development tasks. Eventually, they will be able to make indie games themselves fairly easily.

We are always open to new members in the community. So if you want to become a member, then please contact dirtbag007.

there's progress, but it's mainly making the code easier to maintain. I'm currently also trying to get mouse support working properly, so you can give orders to units.

as of a side note, I'm working on 3 projects at the same time. The first being this, the second being Vector Prime, and the third being an unknown one ;) All that is currently known of it rests with some people, and a banner which I've made for it on my profile.

Writing a full concept of our new game. It's still a rough idea, but already sounds quite awesome. Has influences of SMAC and EFS.

Troubled times currently ahead for me, as I seem to have been ill for a long time, and it's getting serious now. Hoping for the best!

Finally managed to relax for the first time in a few weeks! Felt very good! Except that I couldn't actually afford it, but it doesn't bother

Real life problems are taking a full swing again, taking precious coding time away from me. It can't seem to go well for more than a week!

Finally managed to pick up the code again. Seems we're switching to GTK# now, which provides better Linux compatibility!

Really knackered after 2 days of campaigning for the parliamentary elections! Need to get back to coding soon!

Jul 26 2012

Released the sourcecode of the Star Apocalypse Alpha prototype. If anyone wants to pick up on the sourcecode, let me know :)

Just picked up a small match of Alpha Centauri and Emperor of the fading suns. These 2 combined would make for a kickass game!

Continuing work on the Alpha, after a short hiatus due to parliamentary election campaign stuff.
