Features

Story

In-depth, non-linear story.

It was said man dreamed of travelling the stars from the first moment he looked up into the sky and marveled at it’s majesty. But for untold centuries, that remained only dream. That is until man created artificial intelligence, launching the first sentient program and feeding it all knowledge currently known to mankind.

The A.I. quickly determined that humanity was doomed. Probability of finality while confined to terrestial existence was undisputable. Mankind joined together in the one hope of salvation, the most advanced spacecraft (The Imperium) they could conceive. A lottery was held and people from all professions and countries were selected to crew it. The A.I. was uploaded to the ship’s computer and within a few short years of completion, the ship was launched.

The program had selected a binary system a few thousand of light years away to colonize. The passengers and crew were put into stasis and once reaching a safe distance from their home planet, the ship initiated the first ever test of the wormhole drive. No one remembers quite what went wrong, but the alarms awoke those from cryosleep and initiated evacuation procedures. The wormdrive had malfunctioned and somehow created a singularity that warped both time and space.

As the crew ejected, the last remenants of the ship could be seen stretching into the growing event horizon of a supermassive blackhole. Stars, planests, and astroids were all pulled into a newly created universe and the people of The Imperium were left stranded to rebuild. The ejection pods landed in all different directions, and the first survivors scratched out what could barely be called an existance. In time the different groups formed into factions, each carrying the knowledge of their purpose on the crew.

The bastions of civilization are turned by the powers of Law, Government, and Merchantile Guilds, but not everything falls in their vision of colonization. disgruntled Worker’s Party, Black Syndicate pirates, and Temple of the Void religious zealots are making a play for power and their piece of the sector. Band together with multiple sides, always working in your own self-interest, using your contacts in conquest of the galaxy.

Combat

Stategic Combat Physics

All active modules will be visible on ships and function to allow a whole new level of configuration. Turrets actually turn, track, and lock their targets. Specific placement of these weapon modules will impact both mechanics and play style. Projectiles , missiles , beams and lasers, shields, engines, etc, will all operate within the physics engine, not Random Number Generation. What’s more, all NPC’s play by the exact same rules, and are limited by the same weapons physics that you are.

Perhaps you chose to mount all the weapon modules on one side of the ship to gain an advantage in broadside combat. Then added a passive module to improve your turn speed to capitalize on that advantage.

Or instead equip additional Engine modules to your ship, and have your weapons facing to ship’s aft. So that now you can deliver damage to ships that chase you, keeping them out of range as you use your superior thrust to escape their weapons systems.

Or maybe you move the weapons to the front of a ship, for a head on, guns blazing type configuration. The way you can optimize ships are limitless. The same ship, with the same modules, can be configured many different ways to match any combat play style.
