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.

It looks quite interesting. The sound effects for guns leave much to be desired but it's looking good.

Thanks for the feedback! I definitely agree. I have access to several actual cannons, the charges and a crew. Unfortunately, I have no recording equipment lol. I am working on improving the sounds and may purchase some stock, high quality samples. In the meantime, I have added the doppler effect and a new reverb scheme to help.
