About this project

Space Thinger is an arcade space shooter! Fight your way through multiple combat zones mining asteroids for crystals and collecting the debris of your fallen foes to upgrade your ship and engage in ever more epic space battles. Take on bonus missions for even greater rewards whilst keeping the emphasis firmly on close quarters space dog fighting.

For Windows PC, Mac OSX and Linux.

FEATURES

A new mission on every level

After learning the ropes of combat in the first zone every level will have it's own unique mission, be it collecting artifacts, defending a space station or destroying transmitter probes! Each will reward you with resources to upgrade your ship although failure will not stagger your progress.

First person and Third person perspectives

Switch between first person and third person perspectives at the press of a button. Choose whichever mode suits your play style.

Great arcade combat loop

Fight a fantastic array of simultaneous combatants whilst collecting enough upgrade materials to ensure success in your next epic battle.

Turn on random enemies for endless game variation

Select the Random Enemies option and on top of it's standard set of foes each level will spawn an additional horde of ever more dangerous threats to test your skill and provide endless mission variety.

Varied enemies with a plethora of different armaments

With lasers, missiles, lightning, fireballs and the ever classic devastating beam attacks your foes will pound you with everything they've got. But keep an eye on the recourse stealing factory ships busy making more foes and hazards for you to fight.

Reach the safety of hyperspace to upgrade your ship, weapons and countermeasures

No space shooter would be complete without a fully operational upgrade system! Here we have left nothing to chance! Upgrade anything you wish from your secondary weapons to the ship's hull strength! The only thing you can't upgrade is the cup holder but there's always Space Thinger 2...!

Fast and furious fun, Space Thinger takes you straight to the heart of adrenaline pumping space combat action!

After a year of working on the game we have stretched our budget and resources as far as they will go. If we can reach our Kickstarter target we anticipate completing the game by late summer. Your support and backing will allow us to cover the remaining development costs and buy the software & assets we need to make Space Thinger the game we believe it deserves to be!

Risks and challenges

With two previous game projects under our belt we are all too aware of the challenges and delays that inevitably arise when making a video game. Not just the bugs and asset malfunctions of every day production but wonderful events like the birth of our son. Try coding enemy ship AI with an 11 month old jumping up and down on your lap. It's somewhat distracting!
It's been a long hard road but with your backing and support I'm sure we can make Space Thinger the ace space combat game we know you deserve, just as long as we can sleep for a month when it's finished.
Seriously though the more support we get the better the game and the more enhancements and extras we can add post launch.
