New Demo Version - v0.8.0.3 - Introducing Research!

Posted by Ring Runner (Creator)

EVE-like, Real-Time Research (even when you're not playing)

We're happy to announce our new research option accessible through the Shop in the Main Menu. You can choose to research your favorite node or go random for an efficiency boost.  Progress continues even when you're not playing, and multiple research instructions can be queued.

You can also rush production by paying with Plex, or you can "rent" out your Laboratory to generate an income of Plex instead of researching new equipment. This is a very useful feature, so be sure to take advantage of it early on! 

We're still working on the look and interface of our shop and lab, but all the functionality is there, so have at it! ;)

Demo version Patch notes (10-23-2012):

  • Introducing Research! - You can now research new hulls or new items for your favorite node in real-time.
  • Added new equipment and several new abilities!
  • Minor graphical and mechanic adjustments.

As always, you can download the latest demo version from our website.

Until next time, Sages!

      Hi Joe!

      Yes, the research done will carry over between updates just like equipment unlocked through any other means. It might even carry over to the full release, but that's not certain yet.

      Does research done during the demo carry over between updates? Will it carryover when the full game is released?
