About this project
Acceleron Online is a free-to-play browser-based online game, which sends the player into deep space to cooperate with The Space Guild. Players will have an opportunity to use their strategic skills to build asteroid mining bases for extracting resources. Players will also have the chance to engage in the Logistics of resources, the political endeavors of joining alliances and unions, these are just a few of the many challenges you will be faced with while exploring deep space. In Deep Space you slowly learn the mysteries behind your relationship of your assistance with the Space Guild.
How much work has been done already?
More about us:
We are a group of enthusiasts, gamers, and professionals. We collectively noticed that the gaming industry does not have enough strategic sci-fi games and strive to create an extensive universe like no other that we hope will evolve the genre as we know it. All work will be done by professional studios with experience in development. Ideas can be infinite, however, financial support is not. Without your help, this project cannot move forward.
Where will money be spent?
First, we will send to all backers their prizes thereby expressing our infinite gratitude to everybody who helps in development of this project. We will finish game art, a server that will provide stability and will support the future game population, and multiple servers with multiple language support.
Every dollar above and beyond our goal will be spent to improve our project: better content, better hardware, better support, more media, more information. Each extra dollar will make your in-game experience much deeper. If we will get more money that expected, (miracles happen sometimes!) we will bravely invest it to bring new content than was planned for future expansions. This content will be provided as fast as possible. Milestones will be solid, as well as a goal.
- $40,000: Content pack: we will double count of available types of: satellites modules and cruisers. Each of these items is unique content with unique abilities, that will make the game much more rich and interesting.
- $60,000: The first expansion will be developed twice as fast and will contain much more than we planned initially: two new playable races with their own unique content and balancing. Players will be able to choose their own play style by choosing one of the available races.
- $80,000: The second expansion will be ready early spring: Players will get the tools to expand their influence to space: they will build powerful permanent space satellites and space stations what will expand your colony far away from surface, allow you to make secret hideouts and plan your strategy in new ways. New types of spaceships, ground units, cruisers, buildings and satellites will also be included.
- $100,000: Plans for a third expansion is at the moment, to remain a mystery. But if things will come to this milestone, we will uncover new details, that will be even better than we can describe here.
Risks and challenges
Over the last few months, we have created a software client that will be able to withstand even the highest load of players without difficulty. We have performed high-population stress tests successfully.
Development will continue for two months after successful funding. This fantastic game will be possible because we have already chosen our development company. They will use all available people to make this game fully operational in a short period of time. This will allow you, the player, to enjoy the game sooner than planned. We are expecting this game to be finished in May of 2013, and after a month of beta-testing the game will be released. All backers will get their rewards accordingly, as promised in the pledge section. We want you to be able to play this game as soon as possible.
We are one hundred percent sure about the success of this game. The background story is unique: each expansion will give you another piece of the puzzle which will leave you excited for the next part of the story. Regular game events will keep the game interesting in between expansions, the perfect escape after a long work week.
The toughest challenge for us is the funding. Without it, the time spent developing the game will be much longer because we will have to do it ourselves. Every mountainous challenge we face is surmountable, in time, but with your support, they will become mere hills on our path to create a whole new gaming experience!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
