New UI and Wargroove!

Posted by Ominux Games (Creator)

Hello Backers,

We don't like to make too many Kickstarter updates, because it blasts your email, and we find that annoying.

We've been diligently working on Starmancer. Every Friday we post a new blog about what we worked on

New UI

Over the past 2 weeks we worked on implementing a new User Interface system. This includes a build menu, HUD, and window system (so when you click on an object a window will appear).

We've been quiet. Starmancer has a new engine

Posted by Ominux Games (Creator)

Hello everyone,

It's been a while since the Kickstarter ended. We've quietly been creating a new engine for Starmancer. We're still using Unity for rendering, animations, input, and some other things.

We wrote a fairly long blog post on our website that goes into more detail.

(I'd post it here, but you can't edit a Kickstarter update)

Thanks everyone for your support

- Tyler
