Astro Emporia is a simple turn based strategy where your objective is to make as much money in a limited amount of turns. The game is designed to play a game in a few minutes which at the end you will get a high score. While the amount you buy and sell for and the resource availability is randomised each time you visit a planet, there are tactics that enable you to increase your chances at getting a profit. The initial release will let you compete against your own high scores. New modes and online scores are planned for future releases. Also available on Google Play Store.

Just another update. The update is coming along. Most of the game has been re-factored and the new interface is currently being implemented. A news article will be posted in the future with new media displaying the changes so a chance for feedback can be given before the update is released.

Thanks for waiting.

Hi all.
Just wanted to give an update with some of the things in development.

- New Interface. The current interface is going to be replaced with something that should be easier and quicker to navigate.
- New models for ships and different method of upgrade. Upgrading wont happen by adding containers but by buying larger ships.
- Selecting a planet to travel to will only take a single click now.
- Resource types will be indicated via icons instead of text. Should make it faster to identify.
- Planets will always have type and what they are seeking visible. No need to search for info.
A pretty big re-write to the code to make it faster and more efficient.

Hey just brought this thanks for supporting Linux, I am looking forward to future updates :D
Also something you may want to look into is I had to install "ttf-ms-fonts" to get the text to show. Try switching to an open font :D

Thanks for the heads up. I will change the fonts in the next release. Still in the process of moving so will be a little while before I can get the next update out.

Thanks a heap for buying it and all my deskrop games will be available for Linux.

Hi All,
Been working on new interface and extra features but will have to stop working on it for a short while while I move interstate. When I get settled I will post some updates.

Cheers,

Jay

No Problem. I probably spend more time in Linux then Windows. I also plan on making more Linux games down the track. (After I add more features to this game.)

Yeah. Since I use multiple platforms I try and do stuff on all of them. But I live in linux for my day job and I love it.

@bobafett978 whats the bounty on my head?

A little more #indiedev #gamedev on #hexclaim when I get back then running a greenlight campaign and some #crowdfunding a little later. Fun!

May 5 2015, 1:29am

Got a bit of #gamedev #indiedev to catch up on. Lots of stuff planned and worked out.

May 4 2015, 7:44pm

Spend most of a week out in the middle of nowhere has an unintended effect of increasing your eagerness to get back into #gamedev #indiedev

May 4 2015, 3:29am

Back in phone signal range! Been one heck of a road trip so far! Looking forward to getting back to #indiedev #gamedev though.

May 3 2015, 10:59pm

@LifeAndDevGames @AllGameBot made me laugh. Nice one.

May 1 2015, 11:09pm

Full time road trip is leading to a bit more mental #indiedev #gamedev haha. Better write this stuff down when I stop.

May 1 2015, 11:07pm

@CataclysmGames Oh no worries. Its kind of a board/civ game with cards that players can use. Hopefully it's interesting. Still in early dev.

Apr 29 2015, 11:06pm

@CataclysmGames ... it may even make it to a physical game if it becomes popular enough. Check out #hexclaim
