Pytheas is a galactic exploration, vehicle based, construction game. It has been in development since December 2010. A fleet from Earth's Exploratory Force has gone missing; you are sent to find it. After finding the aptly named ship, Pytheas, you could return to earth, report the find, and let a collection of search and rescue efforts do the rest. However, realizing that is boring, you decide to scour the nearby star systems with your brand new, eerily empty inter-stellar mammoth. Pytheas gives players the tools to execute thier ideas without the limitations of a game engine designed with a different purpose in mind. Barriers that limit how you can play are removed to allow for more freedom.
Pytheas Alpha version 1.0 contains features for the construction and combat of fighter and shuttle class ships.
It's ready! Simply extract and run Pytheas.exe!
Requires graphics card with pixel shader 2.0 support. OpenGL not currently supported.
If you don't already have OpenAL or MSVC++ redistributable I have provided the links below. (You will know you need these if Pytheas fails to locate a DLL)
MSVC++ 2010 Redistributable
This first alpha contains features for the construction and combat of fighter and shuttle class ships. The OGRE config display will allow you to setup your graphics options until a full in-game options menu has been completed.
