Spark Rising is a build and battle sandbox game. Build fortresses, defenses, and an army to battle against an invasion of mechs, aliens, zombies, dinos... oh the madness!
Since we launched the game last month on Steam Early Access, we been listening to your feedback, and planning on some big changes to the game. What we're pleased so far with is that the core gameplay mechanic around battle feels downright fun. Seems like we nailed that pretty good.
So what's next? Grab a seat and I'll share with you!
First off... Happy Birthday to the game's creator John Master Lee! To celebrate his desperate need to hold onto his youth anyway he can, we're offering up Spark Rising on IndieGameStand, and you can PAY WHAT YOU WANT. This limited time offer is to thank all of you who believed in us so far.

You can read about some of these updates here, and here, as well as check out a gallery of our concept art on Steam's Community Hub.
Our conquest mode design is coming along! It's based around conquering one planet at a time, and fending off marauding enemies out to syphon the planet of rare crystals. The general idea is that you have enemies broaching each world with their mega flying fortresses, and you have to destroy each one to gather enough resources to build out your own defensive base to secure the planet. Although... it begs the question... are you protecting the planet or conquering it?
If you are taking orders, wouldn't it be nice to know who is giving the orders? Is this master being good or evil. And just how faithful are you in carrying out your galactic domination plans? Here's a first glimpse of some concept art of this master being...
