Lords of the Black launches out of Early Access !

9月12日

Today is a joyful day for the Arkavi development team, as we conclude the Early access stage on Steam and move on to the game’s release.

On the other hand we are looking forward to the future, as Lords of the Black Sun may have reached “version 1.0” without that meaning that we think our work on the game, our first game, is done.

Indeed, despite the transition from Early Access to release, we are still very much committed to improve Lords of the Black Sun as much as possible.
As such, we are looking forward to any bug reports and suggestions you may have so we can keep on balancing the game and fix whatever issues may arise. We have not slept a lot lately but are standing by this weekend !

We also wanted to take this opportunity to thank Early Access players for the confidence shown in our team and the game’s development, and for all feedback given. We hope you are pleased with the improvements made during the past 9 months.

One of our short term goals in development is integrating German and Russian languages in the game. We will keep you updated on any other stuff too, but meanwhile have fun!

ゲームについて

Lords of the Black Sun is an epic, complex, dense, turn-based 4X PC strategy game, set in deep space.

Take command of one race to join the struggle for supremacy in the galaxy. As the leader of your empire you are tasked with exploring the stars, colonizing new worlds, managing your empire and conquering whoever dares to oppose you.

The galaxy is full of secrets and dangers: Discover ancient ruins and artifacts, repel or befriend pirates, promote a general to guide your fleets to victory. Concoct complex plots with your allies or use your intelligence services to uncover weak spots on that threatening empire whose leader has vowed to destroy you.

Make sure to keep your population happy or be prepared to face protests against your rule, or in a worst case scenario, rebel factions within your empire.

Only the mightiest rulers can prevail in the depths of space. Are you up to the task of becoming a Lord of the Black Sun?

Key features:

  • 8 major races each with their own ship designs, technologies, unique traits and unique abilities, meaning playing with each race is a different challenge and offers new ways to approach the game.
  • Big, living universe: In addition to the major powers, independent races and pirate clans also claim the galaxy as their residence; their existence can be an annoyance, or a blessing if you can take advantage of them.
  • Deep economical and political layer: War isn’t the only way to weaken your rivals. Diplomacy, inteligence and trade can be one of many powerful tools that, if used properly, can be very effective as well.
  • Tactical Turn based combat.
  • Create and customize your own ship designs.
  • Generals: These unique and powerful units evolve as they battle and if used well can be the difference between defeat and victory.
  • Randomly generated universe, tech tree and units: You will never play the same game twice.
  • Empire shattering: Unrest might lead rebels to start a civil war which in turn might lead to the creation of a new, independent empire that might grow to rival your own.
  • Plotting: Secretly finance a war against your rivals in order to weaken them or prepare a surprise joint war along with your allies in a bid to destroy that frighteningly fast growing empire.
  • Human-like AI that doesn’t cheat and plays by the same rules as human players, while presenting a constant challenge.
  • Play Multiplayer and Hotseat online via LAN or IP/internet.

A decent 4 x game , with classic ideas and game mecanics, but potentialy fun.
Fot me it's obious that the game developpers put their heart in it to make à good game, but actually, it's still unfinished : too much crashes, ugly textured "grey ship" on starpmap...
But overall, not a bad game at all...

I hope the dev will continue to patch and polish this game, because it as potential and try to mix lots of good ideas of other 4 x games.

I recommend it , but if you are not in a hurry and don't want to be dispointed, wait a little longer.... after few patches maybe ?

Promising base of a game, just nothing there to make it interesting.

This game is not bad, just mediocre. It is unpolished, but not bad looking. It is a 4x space game, but without the depth. I'll break it down.

The good:
- Loads at the beginning but minimal loading afterwards.
- Graphics are crisp but still run on older hardware decently.
- Not overly complex (If you're not looking for complex).
- Accessible for players newer to 4X games.

The bad:
- Grammatical errors to the point where I noticed and it bothered me enough to mention.
- Underwhelming UI.
- Combat is boring.
- Research is boring.
- Production is boring.
- Bland AI and diplomacy.
- Economy that lacks balance. (Or I need a better tutorial for it)
- Too easy for expereinced players.
- Speech system is unbalanced.

I might not have played it enough to see the depth here, but the economy seems to be very simple and not very easy to deal with. If you get it going early and get lucky with the random exploration treasures (and not just have your scout destroyed without a fight) then you can be dominant pretty quickly. If you get set back by a random event (which rarely cost less than 1000 BC) or hit up for protection money too often there's not much you can do to come back. If you lose a planet and suddenly have -12 BC per turn and only around 120 BC in the bank you have literally nothing you can do to come back aside from hoping that you have enough Glory to give the +5000 BC speech. Oh and you earn that glory by winning battles, so if you're behind in military now good luck getting there on that one. The speech system overall seems to just be covering for sloppy design OR this game is specifically trying to be a short playing 4X game, which is kind of a weird concept to me. Case in point. In my last game before I wrote this, I was dominating the galaxy for most of the game with diplomacy and science before a few bad events and one AI deciding to finally attack me left me with only 1 planet left (not my homeworld). So I just pulled up the tech tree and selected the "You win" tech (which always seemed to take 28 turns to complete no matter how much science I had) and hit the "Your current research finishes next turn" speech to instant win even though I was clearly outmatched otherwise. I did not feel like I was snatching victory from the jaws of defeat, I just felt like I cheated better than the dumb AI did. Also, you need to have an "Army ship" stationed at a planet in order for it to be defended at all when attacked, otherwise they just stroll in and take the planet without a fight. This is a conscious design decision I'm sure, but it's not one that I find fun.

I do not recommend this game over other games in the genre. It's not a strictly bad game, and I'm glad developers and publishers are coming out with more games of this type. This one is just not for me.

早期アクセスレビュー
デバッグエラー、エラー、エラー、
ロードで落ちる、戦闘中にフリーズする、敵を殲滅せしめたらフリーズ、
無限ローディング地獄、たまにデータがぶっ壊れるなどとバグだらけで
これデバッグしてないのかよ??と疑いたくなるよ

同ジャンルの神ゲー Imperium Galactica 2 のような雰囲気があり期待していたのだが、、
これからのアップデートに期待したい(致命的なバグだらけでプレイするのもイヤになるw)
アップデ来なかったら唯のマゾゲーですよ?(クソゲではない)
$19.99で買ったけど、$3でも高いと思いますよ
三回もやり直してるけど、現状じゃこれ以上はもうむりぽ

追記:
なんだかんだで5回やり直してなんとかクリアした感想という愚痴をココに書きます。

セーブデータが頻繁に壊れる、整合性がとれずにCTD
初期化できずにCTD、戦闘突入時に敵の艦隊がPC側として読み込まれてCTD
敵の将軍が読み込まれてバグってフリーズする、特定の日付で敵が攻め込んでくるとCTD、特定の日付で敵を攻める・宙域で戦闘を行うとCTD
特定の座標で戦闘するとCTD、惑星を占領するとCTD、艦隊が何故か増えて次のターンでCTD、生産された艦隊が消滅してCTD
NPC、PCの支配惑星・艦隊らが共に消滅しCTD、
セーブした瞬間(オートセーブ含む)にCTD
ゲーム中にロードするとCTD (但し、一度ゲームを中断してタイトルからロードすれば落ちないが、今度はセーブデータがロード出来なくなる事がある)
数ターン前のセーブデータ・オートセーブがロード出来ずに積む
などと苦痛しか味わえない稀代のマゾゲ。




ゲームとしてはマップの拡大縮小が大雑把で使いづらい、
艦隊の行き先がA点→B点までしか指示できずに複数の艦隊を運用する上で使い難い
すべての技術を完成させても入植できない惑星がある。
小型艦・中型艦・大型艦・主力艦という区切りはあるが、空母の概念、攻撃する方向によりダメージや命中率が変化するなどの概念がない為、戦闘が単調でつまらない。
特殊装備の使いどころがない。(全艦艇ミサイル装備して突っ込ませておけば大体勝てる)
自動戦闘のバランスがおかしい(hp:20,arm:9 主力艦 x 8 vs hp:11,arm:0 中型艦 x 2 で主力艦側が全滅など)
傭兵として使役する将軍の存在が微妙(艦をアップグレード出来ないので最初は盾に使えても中盤では弾除けにすらならない)

ようやくクリアしたが、エンディング的なものはおろか
クレジットすら出ないとは、、あっさりしてます。

現在のバージョンでは金と時間の無駄使いです、まだCapcomのつまらんゾンビゲの方がマシ。
