StarForge is a game about gathering resources, building bases, buying weapons, using strategy, and destroying your opponent’s bases to win the match. It is real time and set in a first or third person perspective. Set on an alien planet, the theme is high technology, mixed with old world building mechanics. Earth has been depleted and the humans transferred as much technology and resources as possible and left on a one way mission to populate another planet. They must forge a new star.
Looking to build with some wood so old, so rickety, and so scrappy that it even comes with barbed wire? Well look no further...

That is not all that's new, we have hugely optimized it's rendering techniques so it should run silky smooth with massive structures. And we polished the tilsets to have proper normalmaps.
Finally we are testing some motion blur. It's not like the radial or zoom blur you see in photoshop, but rather references camera movement and rotations giving the expected blur.
Keep watching for future updates and let us know what you think or make with it. The last month we have been actually been spending our time working on a major physics movement revision that we think will change the way you expect to play games. We also have been working on our first heros and nearly have the account/store system setup.
