The on-going space voxel project by the six sibling studio, ZanMgt! A labor of love, Blockade Runner is an ever-evolving development that's currently undergoing a major engine overhaul to provide a solid foundation for the game's bi-weekly builds. We've found the bi-weekly builds to be an enjoyable and healthy development cycle and are anxiously preparing the game for their return!

Indev release imminent!



It's about time...


We're usually focused on all the little engineering and technical bits of Blockade Runner with very little time to actually play around with the editor. However, a couple nights ago Gabe and I (Aaron) were up until 3:00am just messing with the editor and making spaceships, constantly having to remind each other "You REALLY should be getting some sleep!", but alas, there was always “one more room!”. After some deliberation on how addictive the editor was in its current form, we decided that really it's just about time we get the indev Editor into your hands!

What's left!

Features that cause severe crashes or aren't ready to be tested yet will be disabled (mostly only things we haven’t shown yet), with new features and bug fixes to be released afterward the indev’s released. It is a tad more work on our end this way, but now that we've locked down some very complicated back-end capabilities we feel we can return to our regular updates without having to worry about coding ourselves into a corner for the upcoming multiplayer!

Onwards and upwards!

All in all, with the current “must have fixed” list we’re looking at an indev release before April 8th, with a ton of new features to go in soon after launch. We’re all very excited about finally getting the editor out, and would like to thank you all for your support and patience!

Nice! Will there be a demo version as well, as well as just for the people that have bought the game?

There will be no "lite" version for the indev. However when we release our Public version, than we will add in a "lite" demo.

Methinks it's time to buy the game. It's really looking like a super worthwhile purchase now! :)

All I want to do is spend 100 hours building the perfect ship and then blow it up in 1 minute
