Spacebit is an indie game currently released to a growing community while we improve and add features to Spacebit. Spacebit is an amazing survival game which has many unique unheard of features in a survival game, including buffing and debuffing, spaceship creation, cattle stealing, and ability to build your own army.

Did you ever want to build a spaceship to search for new planets or die trying in the deep void of space? Well, in SpaceBit that's what its all about. You can dig down into the ground and dig into caves. The exploration of planets, asteroids or even suns is totaly up to you. The universe is randomly generated when you start a new game so there's always a chance to start a new world and still have the feeling of being lost while trying to survive.

In Spacebit, you will, in the future, be able to construct vehicles, build buildings, train armies, make items and remedy potions from materials you find all over the universe.

Spacebit will offer great visuals and physics including Strategy army management which allows you to build and maintain a collection of your own custom made spaceships to control through AI, as well as some ground build-able units which help you gather and farm resources.

Build your galaxy, control it and dominate with it online. 

Tell your friends about Spacebit! You can get a headstart by buying it now and building your planet to your desire. Multiplayer and spaceship creation isn't far away. Soon, you'll be able to invade your friend's planets to steal their resources, abduct their cattle, destroy their buildings... Or you can just broker an alliance and live peacefully.... The choice is entirely up to you!

Spacebit 0.7.5 Stable Desura Release

Introduction

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 Indievania.com 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: Steamcommunity.com
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 www.belusia.com

Future

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

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!

Ahh, I hope this game isn't dead. I love it.

If the dev is around - I bought directly from your website spacebitz.com and the updater points to that site, but because the site is down I am unable to update or download a new copy.

I messed with the graphics settings and have a small window about 800 x 600 and see the full screen button but cannot see the "okay" button at the bottom of the screen because it is cut off and unable to change resolution. Because the screen size is stuck at a small size and only showing a small portion of the actual screen I cannot even start it anymore because the buttons at the bottom are cut off.

But more importantly I hope you continue development on this game. There is a new game called Factorio out that shows what is really possible in these top down survival games. Hope to see this one revived because it was one of my favorite Desura games.

Hey Mik3k i sent you a Desura key becuase of the Updater being down. Spacebit is not dead i just have so much stuff this year i recently married and now following up further tasks and which has made it very difficult to sit down and work on Spacebit, The development will continue at full speed when there is less going on.

About the spacebitz.com that site will be replaced by Belusia.com its just a matter of paying the costs to run the site the website should be up within a month or 2.

Thank you for the desura key. Good that it's still going. This is the one game I really hope takes off and does well. It's such a unique idea and fun - two things that are hard to find in games. And congrats on your marriage!

Currently www.spacebitz.com is not being re-hosted we have purchased www.belusia.com which will be the new website location but there will be a little delay with the new hosting it shouldn't be much longer.

In the mean time the game will still be available through Desura and Indievania.

If there is any questions or help needed you can contact us here at mod db or at spacebitz@hotmail.com

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…
