Spacebit 0.7.5 Stable Desura Release


Long time no see! Its been a while since we uploaded a news post based on the latest release on Desura so its about time we get up to date and release one :) We found an artist to create the enviroment, ground, characters etc... so soon you will see spacebit in top-notch visual goodness!

We are also available on Indievania for $5.99 as a special 40% off which includes the Spacebit Updater for constant earlier updates.

Spacebit has also been uploaded to Steam GreenLight. Check it out over here:
Any support and friendly comments you could give us over there would really be awesome and much welcomed! We really also reccomend to check out the many other games on there if you haven't already, almost every single one of them deserves your support in my opinion!

The Spacebit website has been completely reworked, including a new forum which can be found at


Visuals!! our main focus at the moment is improving graphical quality, completing the new environment art, improving particle quality, effects etc.

Tips and Hints

Playing this stable version is very different from the current version on Desura. That's why we have the Tips and Hints section to help you with some of the things that changed in the game you would not have known prior to this massive update!

  • All attacks have a knockback now
  • To open inventory, character sheet or creation menu, press ESC and click on one of the 3 buttons at the bottom left
  • Spaceship creation has been disabled while we are changing core of the map loading system
  • You have a map editor with which you can create your own maps
  • Top level has been changed to 5
  • You lose items if you die
  • To save character press ESC and click save character

Team and Development News

We have found a new 2D artist and will have more news of him during this week. Bert, our music composer has been working hard on new media for the background and main menu. Bram has been working hard on the menu art as well as the trailer/intro. Jeno has been busy working hard on the item icons, check the new art out in the compilation image!

And i've also been working on a side project we called Arena. Check it out over here: Ben has been programming multiplayer and is right now focusing on liquids once again.

Go to Content/Files/settings.txt

Then you will see something like:
Window Mode
800 x 600
0.4142857 (change this one to 1)
0.4357143 (change this one to 1)

Then that will fix the problem, let us know if this worked :)

Maybe I shouldn't like this game so much. I give it 10 for potential and the daily updates if you bought from the dev's site (via the handy updater program). It just feels so good to play even though I'm not very good at surviving. One suggestion to devs is that objects be added to existing slots - for example, if I have dirt moved down to my quick slots, then any new dirt I dig up should be added to the existing dirt in the quick slot until it is full before going in a new inventory slot. Otherwise…
