Thanks j-swan! :D

For me, if you don't have actual voice over, lip syncing isn't that necessary since my eyes would be looking more at the words and not as much the speaker.  But when they finish a sentence or at dramatic moments it's still nice to have them stop.  Sentence endings can be detected with the dot and adding a <PAUSE=2> like tag (pause for two seconds) in the dialogue text for dramatic pauses should be "simple enough" to handle.

Yeah there won't be voice overs, I just synced it with the text in the mockup for fun.  Cheesy
Good idea with the tags though!

Yeah, the art is really good. I am impressed how it works with 3d models as well together. Nice work.

Thanks guy, it's coming along really nicely. There's only a few more hurdles to overcome before we can start showing the game in action. Smiley



Here is an in-game screenshot showing various furniture, walls and floors of different materials.
There will be tiers for materials but at the same time we want different materials to also have different functions.
Like wood looks better and makes colonist happy, but also burns and breaks easily.

Also in the screenshot are paintings and rugs which we now have a system for placing on walls/floors.
Right now the player places them, but in the future we want colonists to decorate their own rooms

Thank you!

We're about to implement colonist inventory.
They can have good items and bad items. We want the player to decide what is good and what is bad. But there will be some things that are definitely only bad or only good, everything else will have both positive and negative effects.

So the player picks what is a contraband, and then places security checkpoints to find and dispose of such items.
Security checks take time and they lower the morale of those being checked.
Eventually we want colonists to be able to smuggle items through them, at a pretty decent success rate. The colonists will probably need a certain set of skills, like a perk called smuggling or a skill involving all kinds of deceit and thievery.

Great! So would you be able to walk around with camera or it's going to be fixed perspective?

This is really cool looking. I'm super excited to see how all the wiring/pipes/air ducts works out in the simulation. I love the idea of designing this kind of space station environment.

It'd be cool if you could have some kind of "remote" settlements on planets but obviously that's something you can think about way down the road. :D

Thanks everyone! :D

We're using unity, yes.

The camera is the perspective you see in the screenshots, with manual zoom and rotation.

Remote settlements is pretty interesting but might be a bit out of scope.
We've discussed having big ships that you can send on missions too, it would be pretty cool if you could manage those ships and bring them back to the station if necessary. But we gotta limit the scope Smiley

Turning down features to manage scope creep? What kind of game developer are you? Wink

I've got to agree with some of the earlier posters - I really love the aesthetic here, and the gameplay is looking like it's going to have the kind of depth I enjoy in games. I'm going to keep a close eye on this, as it looks awesome.

Speaking of scope creep, do you guys have a plan for a version 1.0 feature set? Will combat be a part of the game?

I've seen... things..  Smiley




Unless we change our minds, version 1.0 will have combat, destructible tiles, fire, explosions.
But most importantly it will have real balancing and the basics of material tiers and machines.
Right now we're saving balancing and tiers until we have all things in place, so we don't have to redo it constantly.

This looks great! I love the use of pixel art in the 3D environment. Very curious to hear more gameplay-wise Smiley

How is the character rendered? As a 3D plane with texture?
