    Hey guys! I've been coding a space sim and rts hybrid - the idea is that you can pilot ships like in a space sim and command them like in a real time strategy. I hope that this gives you the player a unique experience.

    Its been a long time coming and we are finally here, a stage (late alpha) where I feel comfortable enough to run a Kickstarter and Greenlight campaigns.


    Kickstarter: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1718477862/void-destroyer


    Greenlight: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=146068036



    Here is the first "Official Trailer" (which are also included in the above links):





    Please help spread the word to anyone who might be interested.

    Thank you for checking these campaigns out.

    Paul

    Hey guys! Exciting news - we reached our base goal!


    Now we are pursuing stretch goals of an additional pirate faction (+5K) and 'Privateer' mode (+30K) and a dream goal of FPS elements (+40K).

    I didn't come empty handed - here is a new trailer:





    This is a warm up trailer for the Kickstarter finale trailer, which by my estimates is... well I don't want to oversell it (ok I do - I'm super excited).

    I will post it later on this week and then quit running around the web promoting the project.



    PS:

    If you haven't been keeping up with the project's updates, there's been a few neat "how indie games are made" videos added. If you are interested in gamedev/coding etc I hope that you'll find them interesting.

    Here is a video where I talk through adding mines:

    Here's the end result:

    Here's another video where I talk through adding an area of effect missile, this one focuses more on coding:

    Hey guys! I haven't "promoted/marketed" since Kickstarter... over 60 days I believe. With the recent 100 games being greenlit Void Destroyer jumped up in rankings, we are now in the top 100 (out of over 1300). So I'm devoting some time to get even higher in the rankings.

    So - if you haven't yet - please vote for Void Destroyer making it into Steam - http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=146068036 (since voting via the web page is somewhat clumsy you can also find Void Destroyer via going to the Steam Client - then clicking Community - then choosing Greenlight and entering in "Void Destroyer" into the search). And if you'd be so kind as to bug your Steam (and other) friends to vote that would be incredibly helpful as well.




    Here is an updated video of updates since Kickstarter:



    There is an updated demo on the main site here: http://www.VoidDestroyer.com so you can check out the changes.

    Here's a vid where I talk about the recent mouse changes and time dilation system:

    Here's a screen shot of the new repair ships:

    Thank you!

    that's an impressive game you've got here. I wish you all the best for it. What will be the platforms for the game?
