Update on future space epic & my Gamedev journey
Just a short blog to update those who have enjoyed my games in the past, that my new project is coming along well.
I’ve been working on a random universe generator, similar to Endless Space, for each new game all the stars, planets and moons are randomized. It works well, my next stage is to create local economies, and corporations zones of control and orbital industries.
The global map will display the star system and several planets and moons in orbit, and will act as the strategic layer where fleets will roam. When players arrive at a star system, they will enter a more detailed map with all of the planets, moons and orbital industries along with ships in-system.
My goal for this game is to have one of the most deep and meaningful economic simulation that drives everything. It’s something that’s quite lacking in space games, barring a few such as Eve Online and the X-series.
As for my gamedev journey, Nomads of the Fallen Star has been quite a disappointment for me in terms of sales. It seems the break away to try a different genre wasn’t a good idea, and I should have focused on staying in space where I’m more tuned-in on what makes a good game.
I’ve got some part time work as a technical writer for a science lab, so it will help pay the bills as I focus on making this next space epic that I envision clearly in my mind into reality.
Being a solo gamedev ain’t easy, that’s for sure!
Good luck with that project! 😀
The only close we’ve to a Eve Online universe but offline is interstellar pilot but it seems that even them stopped updating.
Thanks! It’s what I am going for, an offline 2D Eve, with an emphasis on industry & fleet battles (in real-time).
This game has a potential and when it comes in terms of sales it will be a blowout since there are only few platforms of topdown space rpg in mobile.
People will enjoy this another series of Star Nomad,
Also make the price affordable 😅.
Thanks, hopefully I can pull it off and make a great space game! It will be priced affordable. 🙂
Great, I hope all android version will be supported 😀. Btw any updates on how the development of the game is on going?. Im so hype to play it 😁.
How’s the game coming along?
2020 has been non-productive for me, as I spent most of it working elsewhere and not game-dev. Family moved to new place too. I will resume work on the game this month. 🙂
