Been following this on twitter, you should post your tweets here as well man. Good stuff in there and it's a better format here to scroll through the process of the game being built.

Thanks guys!
I totally forgot about TIGS, I've been reminded occasionally but then I forget again..  Roll Eyes

Anyways, it's been a long time, I better post now while I'm here.  Cheesy

We've been really busy since I lasted posted. In-between working on the game we've been posting things on various social media and we also built a website for Starmancer which you can find at playstarmancer.com.


This fall we decided to improve on the look of the game and one of the things we did was add a simple lighting system.
It's more of a material tint that actual lighting and it's based on rooms. The lights go off when colonists go to sleep and when a room is empty the dim down. We needed something that would scale well and work with our building system.





Another area of focus has been damaged objects, doors, walls, etc.




And adding shadows underneath objects.



------

Most of this work was leading up to our kickstarter which we plan to launch very soon now.
We want the game to look really interesting, but we don't plan on stopping here.

------

The main theme of the game is that you play as a Starmancer, a Human-AI hybrid who is in charge of the space station.
You have a physical core which you need to protect at all costs, shown here below.



 


The backstory of the game is basically the following:
Humanity had to flee earth from a catastrophic event.
Everyone uploaded their consciousness into databanks on ARK ships, which were sent out in great numbers, controlled by Starmancers.

As you start the game your Starmancer core has been corrupted and the station is in disarray, you've laid dormant for years and now you have to get the station back up and running.
As you play, the corrupted memory will gradually be restored and more features will be available.

As colonists are merely data at first, their physical bodies will have to be grown in tanks and their consciousness uploaded into their new brains.





Colonists will have a sprite and also a portrait, for more detailed view of their look and expression.
Here's a mockup of how upper and lower halves of the face can be randomized, but no hairstyles yet.



Here's also something fun I did with faction leaders talking animations.





Well, I think that summarizes most of what we've been doing since I last posted.

I'm gonna try to post more frequently here, but if you want updates asap our Twitter account is the most active.

Love the look. Looks a million times better than Spacebase DF-9. Looking forward to when this comes out.

Good to see that it's still making progress, despite the fact this thread hasn't been updated in a while. Keep up the great work!  Hand Clap
