PULSAR is a cooperative starship simulator that takes you and your crew (1-5 players) to the farthest corners of the universe on a mission to find the mysterious Lost Colony. It features a procedural galaxy generator so every journey will be unique and contain new challenges for you and your crew.
The game has been designed from the ground up to provide an amazing cooperative multiplayer experience (up to five players), although it is entirely possible to play offline with bots as your crew.
The game will be released on Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux.
We are on track for release in Summer 2014 with a closed Alpha beginning in early 2014.
We have some big news regarding Pulsar: Lost Colony!We are now in Phase 2 of the Alpha. This is when we focus on preparing the game for Beta. It will mostly consist of 5 major updates, each focused on one of the 5 playable classes in the game. We are excited to be at this stage of development and to share the progress we’ve made so far.
To kick off Phase 2, the first major update features the Pilot! The Pilot’s job is an interesting one, and from recent testing we’ve learned a lot about how players fly the ship and interact with enemies. We noticed a few things regarding flight mechanics that we believed could be improved. This update revolves around how the Pilot maneuvers the ship, as well as further developing the Pilot’s role in ship-to-ship combat. This is no doubt the biggest update to the game so far, and we’ve made a ton of changes and additions.
Here is a devlog (28) discussing Phase 2 of the Alpha:
