The on-going space voxel project by the six sibling studio, ZanMgt! A labor of love, Blockade Runner is an ever-evolving development that's currently undergoing a major engine overhaul to provide a solid foundation for the game's bi-weekly builds. We've found the bi-weekly builds to be an enjoyable and healthy development cycle and are anxiously preparing the game for their return!

You asked, and Zack delivered! We’ve pelted the asteroids with craters, added ore generators (although Ice is showing mostly in the screenshots below), and added a noise filter to reduce the smoothness of the surface!

Now, if only we could mine it… =)

I’ve also asked for Gabe to build an “asteroid.xml” file so purchasers of Blockade Runner can mess with the asteroid settings in the multiplayer and editor and get some basic modding going.

We've been big fans of ModDB since 2003, so it's quite exciting for us to actually be a part of it! =)
