Kinetic Void v1.0 Release

Today marks the release of Kinetic Void, we have officially completed all listed features planned from development. This however is not the end of development for Kinetic Void! We have a long list of additional features we want to continue to add to the game and release in monthly content updates. Check them out here: http://steamcommunity.com/app/227160/discussions/0/624075566822823055/

The public release of the mission editor will be out in a couple days as well as workshop support for it.

I want to thank everyone that helped make this possible, our Kickstarter backers, and our Steam Early Access community, we couldn't have done this without you. Rest assured there is more to come but at this point we feel that we have grown past the point of Early Access.

Thanks again!

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.

Key Features

  • Fully detailed and customizable space ships
  • Hundreds of weapons and modules of multiple sizes
  • Huge procedurally generated galaxy, limited only by your computer's capabilities
  • Randomized factions and political standings
  • Open world sandbox, you are in control of your fate
  • Detailed economy simulation with resources, trade routes
  • Epic space combat

Not enough features to call this a playable game.

With the current amount of content I would put this game in the "Casual" genre and slap a £5.99 price tag on it.

If this looks like the sort of game you'd like to play I would advise you wait a few months and see if they release any free DLC. (I say free because £18.99 is way too much to charge for the content thats in the game right now- 22/11/14)

These days, I'm not surprised to see a game like this on the release list. This is not a finished game. This cannot and will not compete with any past or future space sims, and should be avoided at all costs.

Backed this game for 50 bucks on Kickstarter. Almost 3 years later its still a horrible game. The shipbuilder was pretty nice. But thats pretty much the only enjoyable part of the game. Also runs pretty choppy on high end PC's. Cant believe they actually released this as a finished product, but I guess they just gave up and got tired of working on it. Also massively overpriced. You can get X3: Albion Prelude, a very superior game for 10 bucks. Had a lot of hope for this game, just another Kickstarter let down. (Nov. 22, 2014)

Sorry guys... The general idea about this game was great. But putting it on "released" is a joke.

It's still far from being a playable game on Nov 22 2014..

Kinetic void had shown promise when first announced. I have experimented with it's features at all stages of development, and was happy to see progress being made each time.

However, as of this writing (Nov 22/2014) I would not recommend this game in it's current state. Many of it's systems still need some time in the oven, features are missing, and there is a lack of purpose or motivation in continued play. Shipbuilding is entertaining if you have a creative side, but not enough to keep me engaged.

An excellent concept hindered by pushing this game out before it is ready. I'd hold off on buying this unless it's under a deep discount or after significant updates and patches.

Dreadful. It is really hard to say anything else to be honest. It is also equally hard to find the motivation to spend time writing a proper review for something that certainly is not a proper finished game. It is not a matter of it simply being in an unpolished beta or alpha state, it is the matter of it being, well, not a game yet. There is barely any gameplay to be had, core ui functionality is completely absent, and the gameplay on offer barely qualifies as more than a tech test.
This would be fine, if said tech test was something new, something revolutionary, such as the Swarm tech test or if it had dynamic visual damage on the ships. If there was anything beyond the most barebones physics and graphics engine tech that has already been outdone 10 years ago or more, by games such as X2: The Threat (yes, i said X2, not X3).
That is how antiquated this game already is, it is released in 2014 with features, gameplay and tech that has been outdone by games released 10 years ago.

Then, on what basis could i possibly recommend this game? On the basis of it being an indie kickstarter project? No, it isnt good enough. If one starts to recommend and promote any indie project just for the sole reason of "supporting the little guy", we only betray ourselves as gamers and customers with basic consumer rights.
There is nothing on offer in Kinetic Void that is better, or even equal, to games already on the market, indie or AAA.
Many of the competitors even have a lower pricepoint, or have been in the bargain bin for years!

This is not just about making games. Its about basic supply and demand.
If other games have existed for 10 years that do everything this game wants to do, better, then there simply is no demand for this game. If there is no demand for this game, what was the point?
The development time would have been better spent pursuing something else, because as of right now i cant possibly claim that Kinetic Void has anything of value to bring to the gaming scene what so ever.

While all the planned features may have been technically released, this game is not playable. I really wanted this game to be fun to play, but it is just too far from ready.

no reason to buy it until it offers some sort of gameplay. pretty much only a proof of concept now. after a long time to real progress as far as an actual playable game goes.

Still can't figure out how to get my ship out of the first shipyard. The game always tells me my ship is missing systems, but then doesn't tell me how to install them. The menus are massive and kind of incomprehensible. Eventually I get bored trying to figure it out and give up, to go play Starpoint Gemini for my space sim fix.

This has the potential to become the sandbox space sim against which all others are measured, but it requires a lot of work.

Waiting with much interest to see what happens in the near future.

This is a truly horrible game.

I bought into this early access version a couple of years ago because I believed the developers were committed to delivering a high quality space-sim experience. I found the ship building workshop a cool introduction to the game too. All was looking promising and I cooled my interest while the developers worked away.

Well two years on (three for the kickstarter backers) and Badland Studio have churned out an ugly, half-baked, poorly optimised, insubstantial product with almost nothing to recommend it.

To those who have yet to put money in the pockets of Badland Studio, seriously don't bother.
To those who have already paid for/backed the game, you have my condolences. If Steam routinely processed refunds, I would be asking for my money back right about now.

You want an exemple of early access done well ? Don't go here.

I bought this game very early in its early access stage (alpha I think, don't know I only played 5 hours in two years). At first I thought that the game was boring because it was an alpha, I was ready to let the time pass and try later when the game would be more polished and interesting.

I gave it a try every few month, with every time the hope that it would be a nice game, every time I was not happy.

The game pretend to be a mix of Eve, KSP and so on. Procedurally generated universe YEAH, ship costumization YEAH, an adventure of your own YEAH

None of that is good. First : ship building is not good. Far from it : the pieces are ugly, the interface is a nightmare, and it's overly complicated for a thing that offer very fews possibilites.

Procedurally generated universe and adventures : the faction exists, the planets too, the mission too. But nowhere the game tells you how to accept a mission, how to dock on a space station, what the next thing you could do. I've got nothing about being free on a vast world (not even that vast the world) but what would be nice is some advices about how to get started. In fact the game throw you in it's universe, with a obnoxious and boring text tutorial and expect you to do stuff. Never it tells you what stuff you can do, never it explain youi how to accept missions. All you can do is touch every button with the hope you would find a useful thing (last playtrough I opened fire on a station because I wanted to dock, every patrol in the system warped to me an blew me to pieces)

The game takethe worst of every of its inspiration and sublimate them. Well if you want a good space exploration game wait for Elite or Star Citizen, you can't make your own ship but at least it's interesting.

What bothers me the most is the fact that they changed all the Steam pictures in the store that looked like the game had awesome gameplay in one of the early acces patches and from that point on I knew this will remain a ship builder until the release. And now they ask for "community intrest" to add all the cool freatures they will never actually include

Análisis de acceso anticipado
First thing's first. I enjoy Kinetic Void a lot. I've had this game for over a year now, and in that time I've seen it progress remarkably far, with most of the work going into the Shipyard (by far this game's most impressive feature) and the general usability. The game is in a very playable state, but make sure you read at least some of the tutorials and give it some time to get used to the way the editor works - it's a great tool if you give it time.

The shipyard, where you build your vessels, is almost at completion (I think they mentioned more parts were to be added), but mechanically it's there and it's very robust. There's a working galactic economy, and factions will vie for control of star systems.

Yes, the game's got lots of features to come - some more ambitious ones rely on good sales - but then what other game allows you to choose almost any given space ship from any game/movie/series that someone has built and fly it around in a sandbox galaxy. You can also change the game files so that, say, one faction uses all Star Destroyers, while another has ships from the Halo universe, Mass Effect or whatever you like.

And this is without mentioning the hundreds of stellar, original, designs created by players and uploaded to the workshop (early workshop integration was an excellent decision by the devs). Most 'Space' games will give you the choice of a handful of ships to pilot and own, whereas KV's 'build your own' approach means that aside from as many as YOU can build, you can tap into the creative output of hundreds of other players, many of whom have written backstory/lore for their ships in their workshop descriptions. These can be used to populate your universe.

The Devs are very open about how the game is progressing and I think that they are helped by a strong community. You get responses to any feedback or bug reports you leave very quickly and the direction in which the game is headed is very clearly layed out.

I spend about 90% of my time on this game in the shipyard, so I should make it clear that unless you plan to immerse yourself in the ship creation aspect, you probably won't get the most out of Kinetic Void, but if, like me, you get sucked up into the whole creative process of building a ship from scratch, you can't go wrong. A big thumbs up from me! :)
