Post news RSS Starting real game development

And now we are on the moment where old is old, new will be new.

Posted by on

Until now i've coded the game adding new features every day, upgrading the graphic, looking around for inspiration. Now is time to draw a line, and take fly following it.

Pre-demo version: (1 March 2013)

Oldest screenshots show it. Really un-happy version... simply codes, codes everything!!!!!

Demo version: (10 March 2013)

This is the final release of what i've done till now.
From now on the game will have a more "marketing policy", will evolve in the way most of the users want, and... as ever where I want.
For now the game is a full strategic skirmish game, the demo (look on downloads) is a standard 4 systems 1v1 battle... i think the perfect solutions for 1v1 PvP multiplayer matches...
AI is not extremly intelligent but enough to take a little fun.

Beta version: From 10 March 2013 and beyond...

In progress: (what will be or have already done for further versions) in bold most important things or what is already under work

  • Better graphics
  • Better AI
  • Lesser AI as CPU-intensive (imagine 200 systems with 100 factions... a really long game but also laggy i think... never tried XD)
  • Main menu
  • Single player domination game mode (what is now but selecting number of stars, enemies and so on...)
  • Single player tutorial game mode
  • Single player campaign game mode (yes a strategy game with a story...strange but true)
  • BUG FIXES (more things added, more bugs were born)
  • Multiplayer domination game mode
  • Multiplayer coop / campaign game mode
  • Balancing gameplay
  • More researches and lesser rare (My concept: I want to make a game where NO ONE knows exactly ALL researches. I want multiplayer research advantage given to who played much more and know more tech than enemy. For example: Hyperspace tech is already in game but condition to obtain it are not reveled. Play play, understood what researches are necessary in order to unlock Hyperspace. Or for example: Shields, Intelligence tech, Cloaking, Beacons, Motherships and so on.....
  • i forgot others ....................................

Too much? no it is my dream-game... and Last colony will be this.
