Risks and challenges

Building a full featured mobile game is a large endeavor.
Potential risks include:
Delays due to sickness
Technical delays

Our view on Challenges:
Our team is a talented group of individuals, skilled in their respective fields. Each member has the ability to accomplish their responsibilities in a timely and professional manner.
Our backers will be kept informed should any unforeseen delays occur, and what steps we are taking to resolve them.

With our team in mind, these are the major challenges and how we plan to overcome them

1. A large explorable galaxy = a lot of content to create
In order to create a galaxy that is varied and worthy of exploring we are employing the following strategies
a. 2d graphics instead of 3d graphics. This keeps costs down. In addition, 2d assets will be photoshopped and manipulated to produce additional assets.
b. We are collaborating with our backers to create user inspired content to add into the game, on top of and beyond our designs. By collaborating with our backers, we will ensure every corner of the galaxy is unique and interesting.

2. This game sounds ambitious in it's complexity. Are you sure you can pull it off?
Our lead developer, Logan Penland, is a trained biologist with a deep understanding of interacting and emerging systems. Leveraging his technical expertise with his coding background, Logan has spent the last year developing our game engine to allow the world, characters, and story lines to evolve organically.

3. Creating a coherent story experience
One challenge we are excited to tackle is linking all of our prototyped systems together to create a coherent story experience. With building a game that switches between many game mechanics such as flight, landing, and platforming, it is important to us that the game feels like a singular experience, rather than a collection of disparate events.This will be our first challenge to tackle once production has begun in full. Our goal is to release early access with this challenge already creatively solved.
