Salvation Prophecy is a space epic. Four warring factions battle over control of the known galaxy. Space stations and planet colonies endure constant assault. You begin your journey as a soldier recruit. Through intense planet and space battle, your combat skills will be put to a grim test. Success is rewarded with powerful skills, combat gear, and ship upgrades, and you may rise in rank to become commander of your faction. Lurking in the dark recesses of the universe is a threat foreseen by an apocalyptic prophecy. A danger far greater than mankind's endless battles. The pursuit of the prophecy leads through distant alien worlds with deadly creatures and untold secrets. A chance for redemption, if only we find our way through that dark hour.

The native linux port of Salvation Prophecy has been released on Desura.

Lots of care was taken to support a full linux experience:

  • Robust full-screen functionality
  • Support for mouse & keyboard, joysticks, and gamepads
  • Testing on multiple distributions, on both NVidia and AMD cards
  • English and French (new!) language language settings

In other news - .Underdog Reviews has created a video review for Salvation Prophecy, included below. This video gives a good overview of the gameplay and features of Salvation Prophecy, which includes both space and planetary combat.

Aw i was hoping the movement animations would be more thorough, and the races would have genders? unless all humans suddenly became masculine hermaphrodites, which would explain that :) Or the humans are sleeping with the salvation faction every so often under a peace treaty on a neutral planet? ^.^

Yes overthinking, but variety of information and data and features makes anything amazing.

Hey Fluffeh -
Short answer - 3D models are really expensive.
I wrote up a big post in my forums that show you how a 3D model is made, in case you'd like a more detailed answer:

Still, I like your theory on the Salvation + Free Nations. Kinky. ;)

Thanks for voting on Steam - the more successful Salvation Prophecy is, the more chance I'll be able to continue making bigger and better games. :)

I just want to say, please don't ever abandon the features of the base idea of the game (factions, planet battles, space battles, exploration, etc) Just expand on it, never remove the base ideas that make these games no longer just "games" make them worlds in their own right, like x3 terran conflict (an amazing idea still although they didn't have ground anything and no colonizing.)

Also don't abandon the game :) expand it! forever! never stop ^.^ until it reaches 10gigs, then just give people a seperate game that requires them to play the first one to import gear and other experiences.. that's right! mass effect 2 and 3 :p

Going over to steam now to vote :)

Just from seeing the video i'm saying all this, i didn't even play it yet.

Heh, well, I guess it's all a publicity contest, isn't it. ;)
Thanks for recognizing the effort. It took me 5 years.

Just finished this game and I must say, I really love it!
Story had a very nice flow and pacing to it, (Along with great faction backgrounds. For the Wry, the Hitchhikers Guide reference was genius!) You never really feel like you're just "killing time" til the next Intel report. (Always advancing towards something.) Getting rune powerups was very badass, as well as the challenges to get them. (Loved the riddles!) I can tell the makers wanted to do much more with this game, but the pieces that are there, are very well implemented, enjoyable, and fit together nicely. (Becoming faction leader doesn’t feel gimmicky, i.e. Spore.)

But above all, the way the story unfolds it what sold it for me. From the start your perception of the universe is confined to just one space station, til the end when you have transcended time and space itself. When the aliens invade, you watch in silent horror as the enemies you once fought get cut down, one by one. (Conveys a feeling of helplessness without being frustrating very well.)

All this to say, thanks for the love you put into Salvation Prophecy Jabberwocky (And everyone else)! And I would love to see a sequel of sorts one day!

Hi drakcothedark,

Thanks so much for writing that up. It honestly made my day a lot better.

I'll leave it at that, except to say that this kind of player experience is what makes it all worthwhile. It's a pleasure to know my little indie game is played and enjoyed.

Apologies, I got sidetracked by some new distribution contracts, stuff I couldn't ignore. You can read the updates in the news section on the salvation prophecy website.

That's all done this week, so linux will have my full attention again. It shouldn't be long!

I've played through the game once, and I have to say it really exceeded my expectations. Although the game suffers a bit from repetition, I feel like it's really got a good tempo; let me explain what I mean by tempo. There's always something to do, and you're (until near the end) always getting stronger in some way. The best way I could describe it is to draw comparisons to Pirates!. New mission types are introduced at a reasonable pace and keep the game interesting. Maybe you'll start out doing…
