    About the game:
    VoidExpanse is our first project – a space themed open world top down action RPG. The player takes the role of a spaceship pilot, and may explore vast expanses of space, engage in space combat and military missions, trade with NPC and space stations, mine asteroids, undertake various types of quests and generally do whatever he wants as the game is completely open ended. It doesn’t mean, though, that there is no story, on the contrary, we believe that without a great story all this openness wouldn’t be worth anything as there will be nothing driving you to devote yourself to explore the game world.

    Facts:
    1) VoidExpanse is being built on top of our custom scripting interface allowing us and any player to extend the game indefinitely with any new features and content or completely redefine how some systems work within the game. That also enables anyone to create a completely new game with this engine.
    2) The game will be multiplayer enabled from the day one. In fact even single player is played with the server being silently run behind the scenes on your PC. This multiplayer ability enables everyone to create their custom servers with any custom mods installed.
    3) We want is to basically enable anyone to have his own small “MMORPG” with a community of followers. But just to make it clear, it is not a MMO title, it is a single player game but which you can also play in multiplayer. Much like MineCraft.
    4) We are using Unity as our engine.
    5) The game will be available not only on Windows, but also eventually on Linux and OSX.

    The team:
    Five dudes from Europe :)

    Progress:
    So far a lot has been done already, but we are nowhere near releasing any demos or videos. Still, I would like to make people know about our project to get some extra motivation to our programmers :)

    The ship and background look awesome! But I hope the title and menu graphics are just temporary.

    Hm. What is wrong with the title?
    As for menu graphics - of course, this is work in progress.

    Nothing wrong with the name. But the text is way too plain. Looks like it was created by a word processor.

    Ah, I see. Well, this is only a work in progress, it is not even alpha :) But in fact we are currently working on some changes to the menu.
    Also we are currently implementing AI. Everything seems very fun so far.

    I think I will stop posting updates here as it doesn't look like many people are interested.
