It is with the utmost joy that I finally, after much intense labor, hand you the fruit of these past months :) I'm sorry that it comes at the rather awkward time of Sunday night, but I wanted to get this thing to you sooner rather than later!
Limit Theory Prototype ('LTP')
Compared to what I initially planned to ship, LTP is a beastly thing. It's certainly not Limit Theory - not yet - but it's got a respectable array of bells and whistles and, in my opinion, makes for a nice little space combat mini-game. Here's what you can look forward to doing:
- Explore and conquer 4 systems
- Pilot and own 12 distinct types of ships, ranging from small fighters to respectably-sized frigates
- Suit up with loads of different weapons and armor/shields
- Buy and command as many ships as you like; build up massive fleets and use them to steamroll opposing fleets
- Build up your own personal armory with in-station storage
- Save helpless ships from certain destruction, or join in massive conflicts to turn the tide of battle
- Fly into battle with your (highly-capable) AI wingmen by your side!
How Do I Get It?
The digital download system that I'm using to distribute LTP currently has it in the queue, and should be sending you an email with a secure, private download link within the next 15-30 minutes! That gives you just enough time to watch the tutorial and get excited :) Speaking of which...
The Official LTP Tutorial
If you're not the kind of person that likes figuring out stuff by himself/herself, then you won't like LTP. The game lacks any form of in-game help system at this early stage. In lieu of that, I've provided a fairly thorough tutorial video to acquaint you with the knowledge necessary to dominate LTP. If you want to figure stuff out on your own, go ahead, but it's worth glancing at the tutorial to make sure you don't miss out on any features! Besides, what else would you want to do while waiting on that email!?
Some Gratuitous Eye Candy
Share Your Thoughts!
Don't be shy. I know you have something to say about LTP, whether it's "THISISAMAZING," "This is totally underwhelming," or "RAWRRR IT CRASHED." Either way, hop on over to the forums and use the appropriate LTP sub-forum to let us know.
Thanks to everyone, not just LTP-level backers, for helping me get this far. As you know, it wouldn't have happened without your support. I'm having entirely too much fun making this game, and I want you to be able to have entirely too much fun playing it (which is, again, why you should hop over to the forums and tell me what would make it better!) But this is just the beginning. For those of you who don't get LTP access, don't sweat it...the full game is going to be so much better! LTP is just a little snack.
Now. See you on the forums :)
