BossConstructor lets you build and fly your own spaceship!

Building your ship

The core feature of the game is its editor which allows you to freely assemble your own ships using a variety of modules. The way you build your ships determines how they behave and what they are capable of doing. Since every module costs money, weight and energy, designing a good ship is a challenging yet rewarding task.

Expedition

The game will feature a number of missions which test your design and piloting skills. The missions include combat and survival missions as well as mining and trade missions.
The expedition mode lets you explore a procedurally generated galaxy inhabited by the von-Neumann, an evolving AI species. You begin with a basic ship and advance as you discover new enemy species and scavenge for more powerful components to improve your ship.

Power Overwhelming

If you prefer to design your ship without contraints, you can do so in the free mission mode which lets you play any of the game's missions with any ship.

Artificial Intelligence

Being a single player game, a lot of attention is given to the game's artificial intelligence system. The von-Neumann enemies you encounter in the expedition mode are created using elaborate artificial evolutions, in which a vast number of mutating ships have competed for survival. Several bonus game modes allow you to lean back and watch how different AI species compete with each other for survival.

Availability and Current state

The game has been approved by the Steam Greenlight community and is now available on Steam Early Access.
While the early access phase is ongoing, you can expect regular updates which expand the expedition mode's story line and add more module types. I plan to complete the game in 2015. You can follow my progress on my development blog at Bossconstructor.com.
