New Release (9/20/12): Version 1.9 Alpha (15 Changes)
- This is second of three updates before we start BETA testing in October. A lot of changes and new additions -- Read More
A True "Live in" Universe to Explore. No borders, no boundaries. Just an infinite sandbox on an Epic Scale.
"A top-down 2D shooter, that’s also a sandbox MMO, and space trading game. This is one of my favourite things about Kickstarter – it’s basically allowing for every mad genre cocktail to have an opportunity to be explored." - John Walker, Rock Paper Shotgun
THE LARGEST MMO UNIVERSE CREATED
Epic Space Game is an ever persistent, ever expanding MMO universe. You play as a pilot among many all trying to live their lives in a small pocket of the universe. You have limited resources, and limited ammo, and no friends?
FOR iOS, PC and MAC - Run your part of the Galaxy from an iPad!
"It's a game about building a life in the void of space and protecting it with tools, resources, and friends."

WHY WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT
Epic Space Game will have one primary game universe. The prototype runs great! -- In my closet! Help me upgrade the backend so we can host more players, have bigger and better battles and create a universe everyone plays a role in.
This will require:
- Primary Universe Server Hosting at Viawest Denver
- Extra Talent for IT and Creative Development (I'm only one guy!)
- Extra Spit and Polish
- Intricate Server Infrastructure
WHERE ARE WE NOW
We've completed the first rendition of the BETA release. However, without better hardware backing, we'll only be able to support between 20-50 players. We'll still launch, just not at the capacity we want. So pitch in!
HOW YOU PLAY IS UP TO YOU
( AND YOUR FRIENDS )
You keep what you kill, there are no rules and law outside of "The Cradle". The starting point of all pilots and the primary trading hub of the galaxy.
Strike out on your own and discover hidden artifacts, and lost ships. Can be a very lucrative business for the daring.
Harvest all kinds of space rocks and planets. Create new weapons, gear. Use them against your enemies, or sell them to your allies.
Getting goods from point A to point B in once piece isn't just a good idea, it's a way of life.
You hunt humans, period.
You live by one rule: Supply less, demand more.
Dead pirates, and ancient Odin class carriers are all over the galaxy. Find them, stake them as their own. Sell them or turn them against your enemy.
DEPLOY A SPACE STATION... OR A DOZEN
All stations are able to trade automatically with other players as well as host docked ships. Non owners can sell and buy specific products that the station makes. And the owner generates income!
A station designed for players to trade goods, ideas, jobs and more directly.
Solar Power Plant
Deploy next to a star to generate power cells. A necessary consumable for all space stations.
Requires Aluminum Ore and Rock Ice. Product: Rocket Fuel
Requires Cordite Ore and Tritanium. Product: 120mm Ammunition
Fuel with parts and sell flyable Ships to other players.
AN EPIC UNIVERSE - GRAND IN SCALE
- 100% Player Driven
- An Epic Sandbox Game

- Dozens of different ships
- Randomly generated content
- Epic Space Battles over an insane amount of territory

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
Server Infrastructure is without a doubt the challenge. And that's why we need your help. We'll still launch in October as this is the type of game that would have new features and updates applied "forever".
Yes! It'll work on Linux. However only PC users will have an .exe. It'll also be HTML5 Compatible and work on most Mobile platforms including iOS.
The kind of music i'm going for the act of "Exploring" would be this ( Thank you David - Downtempo ):
Music of this sort is embedded in parts of the game already. But yes, if the Kickstarter campaign is successful I will most certainly need your talents. Send me a message directly for more info.
There are a number of things that will keep players near the "Cradle of Civilization" also known as 0x0 space.
It's basically the center of the universe and is the main starting point and the primary trading hub for all players. When you die, you are respawned in that area at one of the stations.
Recruitment, Ship Procurement, and countless other things really take place there. Fuel is a requirement in exploration. You can head to this area, stock up on supplies and then venture out. Of course, that's only one of many "avenues" to get supplies.
Thanks for the great question Dexiro.
