About

The game is a 2D top down, pixel art game set in space. The objective is to maximize profits through multifarious means. This includes buying and selling planets, running factories and operating trading missions.  There are several ways to play the game, some legitimate and some illegal. To ensure that you get to craft your own experience, we do not restrict features. Risks are entirely your choice, with drug smuggling and options such as forcibly taking planets available from the very start. If you back us we can create an awesome game that fuses simulation game features with action and adventure, and you could be part of it.

Risks and challenges

The obstacles we face are mainly in programming and making sure that the game plays with a smooth and realistic feel. The challenges we face in design are achieving a good balance between the pixel art style we want to create and a look of a modern game. However through hard work and coding innovation these obstacles are overcome. The money we raise will go towards upgrading computers, buying software and web space. All of our investments are to make sure that our project achieves its full potential, and also in the shortest time possible to ensure that you get to play a amazing game at the as soon as possible.

As you have probably noticed we are not using any paid software. It is especially important that we can use products like Photoshop and Unity pro to finish the game. We are currently using GIMP for photo editing and Unity Free to create the main game. We desperately need funds to buy software as well as an upgrade to a currently non-functional PC.
