Pytheas is a galactic exploration, vehicle based, construction game. It has been in development since December 2010. A fleet from Earth's Exploratory Force has gone missing; you are sent to find it. After finding the aptly named ship, Pytheas, you could return to earth, report the find, and let a collection of search and rescue efforts do the rest. However, realizing that is boring, you decide to scour the nearby star systems with your brand new, eerily empty inter-stellar mammoth. Pytheas gives players the tools to execute thier ideas without the limitations of a game engine designed with a different purpose in mind. Barriers that limit how you can play are removed to allow for more freedom.

Report RSS First Pre-Alpha Video

Here it is, the first pre-alpha game-play video! The alpha features are coming together and mod-ability is a big focus.

Posted by on

Here is a short video showing some of the features coming together.


First Pre-Alpha Video - Mod DB

Most of the programming is complete for the major features to be included in the alpha. I'm not giving a definite release date but the to-do list is getting much smaller. The focus will be on polishing the GUI and crafting system. Pytheas is designed to be highly mod-able. The alpha will include enough functionality to create some custom content and do plenty of tweaking. As a long-time modder, I absolutely support modding!

Enjoy the video! Keep in mind it's still an early alpha, but I still have fun playing around in it!

Haha, good to hear. I'm working on getting the alpha out but I figured it would be good to show some moving footage for once!

I really like the collisions and thank you SO much for just putting a third person view in, I hate it when there's no third person view. On that note, will we be able to move the third person camera at all? It would certainly make landing ships in smaller areas easier.

I'm working on making a camera re-position key that let's you move it anywhere within a sphere around the vehicle. And as for the collisions, I have a lot more Im not including yet ;)
