About Kinetic Void

Kinetic Void is a 3D space adventure with a focus on customization and exploration. The shipyard allows players to construct their ship piece by piece. Ships can be as simplistic as a cockpit, a hull, a engine and a gun, or as complex as a player wants. Each module has available subsystems which can be applied to strengthen specific attributes of the ship, and when damaged, those subsystems may be destroyed. While in space flight, interactions between objects are governed by the physics engine. Running into an asteroid at high speed will damage your ship, potentially with catastrophic effects. Using the Kinetic Field Generator (KFG) in game will allow your ship to create an artificial gravity around the ship, both protecting the ship as well as allowing your ship to fly freely through space. This field will also enable the Micro Warp Drive, catapulting your ship far into space in a matter of seconds. Kinetic Void is a procedurally generated adventure, there is no main story line. The decisions and direction is left up to the player. Ally with factions, go to war, build your ship and amass wealth, the choices are yours.

A New Galaxy Every Time.

Procedural galaxy creation allows as many new experiences as you'd like. When a new game is started, the galaxy map, contents of each sector, and the factions involved will be generated from scratch. You may continue to play this galaxy, or if you'd like to try something different, create a brand new galaxy. Don't worry, your old galaxy will be saved in its current state if you ever wish to return. Choose how many sectors you'd like in your galaxy, as well as how many factions (NPCs) and whether your ships will be Creative or Career mode.

Know Your Neighbors.

In Kinetic Void the galaxy is a living, breathing thing. Not all factions get along, not all of them hate each other. As factions interact, agreements and treaties will be made and broken. Trade, combat and piracy will affect how the factions see each other based on their own internal standings.

Fully Detailed and customizable Space Ships.

Tailor your ship for any role. Make a sleek fighter, a bulky freighter, or a mighty carrier. Your ship’s capabilities and appearance are completely up to you. Using Kinetic Void’s ship builder you can make exactly the ship you want. Customize every part of your ship from cockpits, hulls, engines, weapons, and aesthetic modules. Each module has its own statistics that affect the total performance of your ship. Every module can be further customized by adding subsystems (right click on a module to add subsystems). You can even color your ship exactly how you want. Each module has seven color fields allowing you to make amazing ships quickly, and easily. Once your ship is created, save it to your computer, or share it to the Steam Workshop for the world to see. Subscribed ships from the workshop have a random chance of making it into any new galaxy as a faction vessel.

Freedom to Choose Your Fate.

Be the scourge of the galaxy, or its savior. A life of combat and struggle not your thing? Become an intergalactic trader and influence the galaxy one deal at a time. Not interested in being a ‘good guy’? Take on a life of piracy and plunder your way through sectors, creating havoc wherever you go, then docking at pirate stations for supplies as needed.

Intense Active Combat.

Target enemy ships and maneuver in real time to align devastating broad-sides or crippling strafing runs. Deploy drones to do your dirty work or simply confuse the enemy into targeting them instead of you while you deal with the enemy vessel. In Kinetic Void, your skills as a pilot are just as important as the components that make up your ship.

Take Direct Control Of Your Ship.

Kinetic Void offers three control modes. In cursor-mode, the player can control the ship through keyboard commands, and pan the camera with the mouse in any direction for quick tactical overview; or Mouse Flight-mode, allowing direct control of the ship through mouse movements. Control your battleship’s turrets from a sweeping orbital camera or slip between asteroids in a dogfight while piloting your heavy-fighter using mouse flight mode. Switch between modes at any time to best suit the situation.

I dont know what others have against this game.
Its an open world Space game were you have to choose what you are doing. There is no story you can do what ever you want. Fighting Mining Trading Exploring. I have played this game alot and its one of my favorites. So i recommend to try it out.

Honestly, when it first came out, I was hoping for the best. However, that failed and I was left with a game that I paid $20 for, that I could replicate the results with a few days in Blender with more to show for it.

Avoid this game, don't purchase it, if someone wants to try it I'll happily gift it to you. Share the knowledge of the game and it's atrocities.

Dull game that the Devs have abandoned. It has almost no content and offers nothing of value besides the ship building mechanics which admittedly are extremely finicky. I've had more fun having a doctor touch my balls than playing this poor excuse of a space sim. DO NOT BUY.

Game has been in Dev for multiple years with no signs of significant imporvement or acknowledgement of continuation from developer "Badland Studio." Every 6 months or so expect an update.
Game should be removed from steam until the dev team decides they actually care about this title.

You want to know how bad this game is? The tutorial (and by tutorial, I mean the 30 paragraph text dump they expect to guide you through this 'game') mentions features that, and I quote, have yet to be implemented.

This game claims to be fully released, but does not even contain all the features that the game itself says it does.

Do not buy this. The developers do not deserve your money.

This game is a massive let down. From horrendous graphics, to bugged game play, to basically an unfinished/ unplayable game. These dev's should be ashamed of themselves for releasing such a hot steaming pile of dung onto unsuspecting customers. This right here is the meaning of buyer beware, and why you should be extremely careful with Early adoption games....
Stay away, far away from this game and this company.....

One of my first (if not the first) early access i ever bought back in 2014. Im surprised i wasn't surprised.

Best deception simulator.

You wanna know what is sad though? What is sad is that the guy who was behind this actually had "hopes" to accomplish this and i saw a lot of commitment during the first months of release. It's just sad to see someone give up for no reason, without saying anything and leaving an unfinished, unoptimized, confusing pile of... Yeah.

The tutorial is poor to start with, and nonexistent after you've built a ship.
Ship building is a bit clunky, but works.

But what do I do after I've built it?

One of the first Early Access titles I purchased. Think I spent $5 on it. Just as Towns made me question Greenlit titles, this definitely gives me pause as a consumer to consider purchasing most EA titles from now on.
