Peek into our project plan: Empowering level designers
Just to let you know what we are focusing on right now, here is a short summary of our most important (and visible) features to be implemented in April and May. In this development stage, we are focusing on empowering our level designers with tools and features they can use, especially for interior level design.

– Drones – camera drones equippable with hacking tools or explosives to perform risky and stealthy operations inside enemy stations.
– Security devices for space stations – cameras, scanners, alarms, doors, turrets.   These will be connectable to control panels and will be destructible as well as “hackable,” in order to allow for straightforward action gameplay as well as stealth and tactical gameplay.
– Electricity and functionality for space station parts – objects within a space station will require power generators in order to work. Many of the objects will have specific functionality and will form a logical and organic complex – turrets, generators, docking bays, cargo containers, ore storage, armories, radars and jammers, repair depots, security devices…
We are really excited about the gameplay options our new level-design tools will enable!
