Sands of Space is old school RPG with turn based combat. The plot of the game takes a place in alternative future of the 1980s. Active space exploration in progress. Many planets are inhabited, and some have already been abandoned. The main character, the space nighthawk gets suspiciously shady offer. During the mission spaceship crashed and the whole crew has died. He is the only one who survived and left alone without any back up on the planet called TRAPPIST-1 h which has been in quarantine for dozens of years. The previously prosperous cyber-metropolis of one of the planetary systems - decays after a biological plague. And it’s not the most pleasant place that turns into the hell, when he realizes that it's impossible to run away from this trap. Some people say that everyone has a small chance to leave TRAPPIST-1 h, and the black archaeologist is trying to do his best to find the ship and get off this planet.

Posted by on

Hi! Yet another progress of old school RPG with turn based combat.

Long story short I have added a outliner for objects that player can interact with, new monster Derelict and Psy Derelict with invisible feature, new HUD, ammo reloading, new UI for dialogs and notifications for quests.
And here the timeline

  1. 00:00 - 02:18 fight with Derelicts and Psy Derelict
  2. 02:18 - 02:54 new UI for Inventory
  3. 02:54 - 03:28 big badaboom

The outliner works like in Underrail. You can press Tab and it will highlight the objects near the player to reduce pixel hunting. Also the color of outliner is depending on what object it is. For example

  1. None NPC (lockers, stuff on floor etc.) — blue outline
  2. NPC not in battle mode with player — green outline
  3. NPC in battle mode with player — red outline

As you can see the new enemy Derelict is in a game, two version of him actually. Psy Derelict and Derelict. The Psy Derelict is invisible and he is the leader of group. Thats mean other Derelicts near the Psy Derelict attack with more damage. And if Psy Derelict is dead they become weaker.
