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.

The first release is a free sandbox style experience. The shuttle and fighter class ships are the most complete. These ships feature a smaller base unit size than the larger class ships you will find. Smaller units allow you to pack more components and design features into a small space craft. You can create more complex fighters and shuttles while maintaining speed and maneuverability. The small class ships will become vital to planetary exploration.

Many more features are planned and are in the workshop! Pytheas will focus on a unique sandbox space simulator experience. Future builds will include features to expand the player's options and introduce challenging enemies and objectives.
