Ghost in the caverns
The Neptune Master Operator
Here's a quick video where Jarrett talks about NeMO - The Neptune Master Operator.
NeMO is our procedural generation robot - he makes each descent unique and makes Neptune, Have Mercy replayable.
He works by combining prefabricated parts into unique caverns - obstacles, creatures, minerals, treasure etc.
NeMO is still pretty dumb to be honest, but he's getting smarter everyday!
It's our job as developers to teach NeMO to design good levels. We're dedicating a significant portion of our Kickstarter funds to making NeMO as smart as we can.
Progress So Far
We're just about 25% funded, and nearly 60% of the way to the top 100 on Steam Greenlight. Thank you everyone! These numbers come from the support of over 150 Kickstarter backers, and over 1700 steam users.
Rock, Paper, Shotgun Article
We're excited to see lots of new backers finding their way to the page through Rock, Paper Shotgun.
You can check out their short article on Neptune here:
We're on track to getting this game funded!
You can help us cross the finish line by spreading the word. We're planning a special thankyou for backers who contributed in the first week. Keep tuned to these updates for more information about that.
...and seriously, tell a friend about the scifi submarine roguelike you just backed, they'll think you're awesome.
Until next time!
- Jarrett, Team Neptune.
