“It's not just unique but the amount of gameplay features and scope of the game had me taken aback because even big budget AAA games usually don't include the amount of content present in Salvation Prophecy.”

Very clunky, dull and boring game with a inordinate amount of grinding, pretty much doing the same thing over and over again. The gameplay doesn't hold up well even when compared to anything in its own era and most of the time it feels like some early beta with plain place holders where you'd expect some more detail, until you realise they are actually trying to push this as the finished product.

Save yourself the time, money and effort since there are many more worthwhile things to be played for $20

Great game. Gets a little repetitive and the strategy portion is bareboned, but the space combat is really fun with some of the best flight controls I've ever used. Works flawlessly with a gamepad.

Despite the repetitiveness, the game is quite short if you complete the story missions as they come. But, with 4 different factions to play it packs a bit of replayability, although after your first playthrough, there are no more surprises, since there isn't really much difference between the factions beyond some aesthetics, except for one faction that gets the ability to construct turrets during planetary invasions.

The strategy portion, which doesn't unlock until mid-game leaves a lot to be desired. First, you can only attack from one station at a time and you must be docked at that station. When your stations or planets are attacked, there's no warning, and you will only find out about it after the fact on the news. The factions are all evenly matched, the planets alll have the same amound of buidlings and units, all stations have the same amount of ships, so who wins or loses these battles is a crap-shoot. Of course if you are at a station that is under attack you are given the opportunity to board your ship and defend the station, which will heavily put the odds in your favour.

As commander, when you launch an attack you must also participate in it, which means you can only ever fight one battle at a time. You can't send troops to attack one planet, while you attack another.

Still, despite the fact that no portion of the game is particularly well flushed-out (except maybe the space combat) the combinatiion of elements: 3rd pers. shooter, space sim, and realtime not-so-grand strategy make this an exceptional game unlike any I've played before.

I have mixed up feelings about this game. While it is filled with very intresting concepts for immersion, there is not actually much to dive in, making the game look a bit lame and some sort of cash grab - honestly, its not even worth half of the price -

So what is this game?

A: some sort of creative and lame 4x.

Creative and lame?

A: yeah. As i said, there are some nice concepts that work immersion wise, like well placed minigames, a constant feed of news and a cliché but solid lore. However, what the game gives with one hand it takes with another:

+ deep immersion potential
- not much to be immersed with

+character progession
- it is linear as ♥♥♥♥

+Racial diversity
-unless you are a die harder, the game style rewards a specific faction while punishes the others. specially late game

+a whole galaxy to conquer
- the way the war works makes it look like a sophisticated war tug, making fighting pointless as time goes by

+build stations and colonize planets
- it does not make any sense in game. they are all built like magic the moment you ask them to, regardless of the distance of the rest of your planets. Hell, you can build a station orbiting an enemy colony (?????)

+ real time tech up on the galaxy, making the battles more intresting with more elements
- they stop happening way too soon and in the end of the day, it just makes the battles last longer

+space dog fighting and planetary invasion
- fun until certain point ( 10 hours in game id say) after that it is all mechanical and pointless

so on so on


im giving it a thumb up because you can have some fun with it, but buy it at 85% discount, whoever did this game had or no idea how to price it (the graphics are plainly bad and unpolished, the models are soooo lame) or just deliberately made a cash grab... or both, idk.

offput by the 'wormhole' and 'jump' mechanics. I'm a pretty solid gamer, but the controls just aren't good enough for the challenge those scenees represent.
TBH I didn't troubleshoot or change mouse sensitivity or anything , I just kind of gave up.

Very nice game. There's a three-fold progression.

First the tutorial, which takes you through the basics of the game: moving and shooting.

Next comes the progression to commander, where you take missions to gain ranks, either invading a planet, attacking a space station, defending a space station or bounty hunting. In addition to spending money on upgrading your ship and your soldier, you also gain skill points and partake in the Prophecy missions.

Finally, once you attain the rank of commander, YOU decide what YOUR faction will do next. You can exterminate another faction's colony to build your own, which earns you resources, or attack another faction's space station to make room for your own. This has a 4x feel to it.

Once you get into the game, it becomes difficult to stop playing.

This game may not offer much in sense of graphics, but it makes up for it in gameplay for sure. It brings together a couple of genres, exploration/space sim/3rd person shooter/rpg in a very unique and entertaining way. Not something I have seen done succesful before.

I'm almost done with the game now and I have to say it really captivated me.

It still looks crappy and feels clunky, especially the mouse controls.

BUT this is simply a great game.

I can see a lot of people having trouble getting through it to begin with but once I got past the first hour I was hooked.

Fun game but the story is bad and the ending is not very fun at all. I would like to have seen more in the way of taking planets and building an emipre. The alien invasion piece seems tacked on so they could limit the scope of the game and foce an ending.

If they make a new game and it allows for more empire building I will be a customer.

Worth purchasing at a discounted rate.

I must say, Salvation Prophecy has surprised me in one of the best ways possible. At the first glance, one might expect a rather clunky game, and the graphics aren't exactly top-notch, but so far playing the game has given me great entertainment. Sure, the tutorial can be a bit tedious, but even that part of the game was amusing in my opinion. Furthermore, as soon as I was able to actually leave the space station behind me - for as long as I didn't need to invade anything - I was truly captivated by the atmosphere. And all that combined with the nice main story?

Sure, the game has it's flaws. The tutorial is, as I said, tedious, and the final part of the game can be so, too, yet I think it might be meant to be that way, but all in all, I can only find one word to describe my opinion of Salvation Prophecy.

Beautiful.

Surprisingly fun game if you break the rules a bit.. especially if you are a good pilot, after the first few missions I flew off on my own to mess with all the battles breaking out around the universe.. nothing funnier than flying to an enemy starbase while another enemy is assaulting it.. then defeating them both and blowing up their space station too.. made for some rather odd sounding news reports in game bwahahha.
Station life however is tedius, and boring, any time you poped back home to upgrade your ship there was almost always a call to arms for one thing or another. all the stations are basically the same yet you have to go to a particular one to advance the plot. Ground based battles feel... uuuhm tacked on really. It is like they planned for something cooler, but just never got around to coding more than basic placeholders and basic AI logic. Overall ok game for practicing space combat, just dont be expecting epic realism.

I'm going to be straight: Salvation Prophecy isn't everything it claims to be. The strategy is meh at best once you become commander, and the multi-galaxy war which the description seems to promise takes place in a measly 4 solar systems. That being said, I've greatly enjoyed my time with the game so far, and the game has so far continuously unlocked new features to keep me interested. Those looking for a dedicated space shooter or strategy game will be disappointed, but if you give Salvation Prophecy a shot you'll find a lot to keep you interested.

Amazing game game and all made by one person!

You can fight/lead battles on ground whether they be offensive or defensive. Fight/lead battles in space under the same criiteria. You start as the lowest rank and work your way up to the top.

The space combat is very smooth and fun, the ground combat is different for each race and is very fun. Each race uses different weapons an abilities and you can customize your own through usage of different weapons you can buy. You can upgrade your weapons as well and earn special abilities to aid you in combat. You can upgrade your spaceship as well.

The story is pretty good and is a nice bonus to the whole "sandbox" being able to ascend to the top of your race and conquer the galaxy, unite it, or enslave it.

Every time you jump in hyperspace there is an amount of skill needed however due to a little minigame that plays (that also hurts some persons' eyes).

Overall though this game is a marvel and is definitely worth a playthrough. I give this a solid 8.5/10. Definitely give it a shot.

Similar Games:

Mass Effect, Mount & Blade, and to a lesser degree Dynasty Warriors

The Good:

Varied gameplay mechanics that primarily focused on third person ground combat and space flight, but layers of strategy & RPG were there as well
Ground combat had a Mount & Blade/Dynasty Warriors feel to it, so the player would be fighting alongside his/her comrades in massive ground battles
Space flight and combat had a similar feel to the ground portions, but much more open and interesting
Space travel was unique in its use of wormholes and hyperjumps, which were refreshing and a nice change of pace
When needing to get a far off area in space, “hyperjumping” gets you there faster through the use of a quite fun mini-game that involves avoiding electric bolts strewn across a tunnel (See image)
A similar mini-game is present when using “wormholes”, which require you to stay in the center of the tunnels without hitting the sides (See Image)
Four different character races that each have different looks, starting areas, ships, and equipment loadouts
An RPG progression system that rewards you with skill points for accomplishments in battle (both space & ground)
This allows the player to tailor their character to their specific play styles (offensive, defensive, etc…)
A giant living, breathing world with a deep backstory and lore
Conversation trees are welcome and add a bit of needed flavor to character interactions
Numerous choices and options that are not only present in character and story development, but also in the game interface
Character interactions are amusing and keep a sense of humor about them (I was reminded of GlaDOS during certain points of the tutorial)
Sound design is well done and helps to immerse the player in battles or space travels
The Bad:

The beginning of the game is not indicative of the full package
The player will spend a good thirty minutes of slogging through a mediocre tutorial/basic combat section that has a very “been there, done that” feel to it
Graphics are very dated and can really ruin the great immersion the story creates
Animation and physics when it comes to combat sequences is very limited
Example: explosions all look the same and do not have a physics engine behind the particles (at least it is perceived that way)
Example: the death animations on the ground combat sections are all the same as well, with no variation based on the chosen weapon or vehicle of death
Not enough variation in indoor textures
When traveling to different space stations it is not uncommon to see the same textures and/or room setups within the same race
It feels like the game tries to do too much in scope and would benefit on focusing on one of its styles (space combat was my personal favorite)
Can you play it while the children are awake?:

I think so. With the dated graphics and basic death animations, the game didn’t scream inappropriateness to me.

Did I make time to complete it?:

I did not. However, I found the scope and gameplay compelling and worth the time spent in the game world. This small team should be proud of their ambitious project and I look forward to their future endeavours.

Salvation Prophecy manages to successfully marry several play styles into one game which makes for an enjoyable excursion into space for fans of shooting and exploration. Whilst the progression feels a little rigid in places, once the game opens up there's an enjoyable fusion of gameplay elements that keeps the game fresh and worthwhile. The game is very much a budget release, but with so much care and attention placed into this project, it stands as a testament that smaller budget games can be good and don't necessarily need expensive effects or flashy graphics to make them enjoyable. The gameplay and looks are simple compared to triple A games, but if this can be ignored, there's a cool and fun game to play here that's well polished and certainly worth the price of entry.

(Minor spoilers, but it's more a setting than a plot so I'm not ruining much)

I remember picking up this game for five dollars, and a friend preordering X-Rebirth for me at about seventy.
One was an unpolished mess of a program, an atrocity to gaming filled with every single rookie mistake from all of the ♥♥♥♥♥iest indy developers, and an insult to the entire space sim/adventure genre the other was Salvation Prophecy.
(Yes I know X-Rebirth is at least playable now but this was at launch)
Salvation Prophecy is kind of like a very very simplified Mount & Blade, IN SPACE!
You start as a grunt, and this is what I love about the game, I mean a grunt grunt, you are no one to anybody, you don't have a ship or a sweet gun or even a seperate character model. So when you work your way up to commander of your entire race it feels like you've earned it, and the journey feels so much better.

The game takes a bunch of themes and ideas and actually blends it together quite well, I'm surprised this game was able to be at all fun given the scope of the game and the indie developer.

First off you got your ground battles. These are fun because each faction requires a (semi) different plan of attack.
Salvation? Maybe try getting into melee range so you can beat the crap out of them without worrying about their shields.
Free Nations? They're the Jack-Of-All trades for this setting, with pretty good speed, melee, and firepower, but nothing to special of their own. Try using your factions unique abilities to get the edge.
Drone Unity? Keep your distance and try to pick them off that way. They're slow, so strafe/flank them.
Wyr? Target the guys placing the turrets first so you don't get overwhelmed. Use AOE to try damaging them and their turrets as well.
Aliens? AH ♥♥♥♥ FIRE EVERYTHING HOLY ♥♥♥♥

Next is your space battles, which offer much less complexity. All ships fire the same missiles and have the same attack patterns, but the general battling is still fun.

Third is bounty hunting, which are space battles, except the targets are all different and have different abilities, and you have to find your mark and take him on alone. Shakes it up a little, and its cool to unleash your inner Space Cowboy (actually this kind of ends like Cowboy Bebop too) but they're the same bounties for all factions, and I don't get that at all.
Why does the Drone Unity care about some guy desecrating corpses? Last I checked I'm exterminating the human race, shouldn't I hire this guy instead?

Fourth is when you become leader of your faction, and that's awesome, because it turns into a (albeit simple) strategy game where you can still go in with your troops and fire lasers at robots. You then invade colonies to secure resources, build up your defenses to protect your own from others, destroy billion dollar enemy space stations, and generally try to ruin everyone elses' day.

Fifth is when you investigate spooky wormholes and alien planets, trying to piece the titular Salvation Prophecy together and collecting runes that give you sweet powers during land battles.
Ever wanted to summon a space T-Rex to destroy those murder-bots threatening the human race? Well ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ it, SP is your game.

The time before the end game is where the game both comes alive and screeches to a halt. Just when you've almost either negotiated peace with, or exterminated all other factions, holy ♥♥♥♥ aliens invade! Easily tougher than all the other factions combined, threatening your planets and stations.
Did you let each faction have their own system and negotiate peace, so that you would have three friends to help you fight this threat?
Did you, like me, exterminate all other races and RULE THE GALAXY? Then congratulations, you have all the resources in the universe to help you fight the alien menace, alone.
The game comes alive here at first because you probably haven't finished dealing with all the factions yet, so for a while you're fighting aliens on one side and kill-droids on another, and that's exciting.
It screeches to a halt, however, when you've finished everything you need to do and are just waiting for the damn plot to advance and your cartographer to find the final wormhole. Eventually you get bored because there are so many aliens and fighting them takes so long, and the portals respawn so fast it's almost a joke. You just wait for them to destroy another base so you can rebuild it again and cut your lossess.

The plot is alright, although it's more of a setting really, and the setting is interesting, revealed little by little throughout war with other factions.

The game is also really atmospheric, the alien planets have an absolutely existential-horror level of isolation in a hostile environment. Here's a fun game, pan the camera out as far as you can and maybe turn the music off on either the third or final alien world, it's downright spooky I tell you, especially when you're playing as a human. And all the planets in the home galaxy are also unique artistically but really boring. You don't get a sense that that is where people live and work to get resources or anything like that. Same for the stations.

What I like about this atmosphere is that you can mute the background music and make your own atmosphere whenever you want. And whatever music you play will fit no matter what, leading to absolutetly ♥♥♥♥ing awesome results.
Shooting lasers back and forth between humans and drones and want to jack up the intensity? Pendulum.
Flying around hunting space bounties? How about the Cowboy Bebop soundtrack?
Want to act like the smooth rogue you are? Shooting down ships and conquering planets like it isn't a problem? Some electric funk or electro swing, This Head That I Hold did it for me
Drifting through space and feeling contemplative? Throw on Sad Machine
Heading through a wormhole to an alien planet billions of lightyears away and want to awaken your soul and attempt to understand the very essence of the universe? Moonchild.
Final boss? Queen or Dragon Force, send that alien to hell with maximum style!
Really experiment with this, the enjoyability goes up a hundred fold with some music, and the possibilities are endless.

Problems are that it eventually gets really repetitive, so maybe take a break every once in a while.
Second is that it has no sort of quick battle select, which sucks. So in order to do a fun part I liked I'd have to restart the entire game and work back to the part I want to play. And dammit sometimes I just want to get high and shoot some robots with laser guns.
Third is that towards the end game you're basically just drifting around for like an hour waiting for the plot to advance.
Fourth is that every planet and station feels empty. I don't see anyone just living in the faction, or even what day-to-day life would be like for them, this was especially apparent for the humans. And all the stations are the same inside for each faction, so that's dull, but given the budget I don't really mind.

But it's just a fun fun fun game full of robots, laser-guns and laser swords, aliens, and space battles. Totally worth buying, maybe get it on sale, but I don't think you'd regret it if you payed full price either.

This game is a flawed gem. It's definitely unpolished, but unique and interesting in it's own way. If you're looking for a really smoooth, AAA title, you might want to look elsewhere, but I had a lot of fun with Salvation.

The game is basically a war game. You choose to play as a soldier in one of four factions, but the gameplay structure is the same for all four. Starting out in a space station that functions as a shop / hangar / communication hub, you get missions that fall in to one of two types: on foot, or in space. The "on foot" missions are pretty simplistic third person shooting sections where you run around a field and blow up buildings and enemies. Each race has three weapons: a melee weapon, a ranged weapon, and a special weapon (like an energy shield or a bomb launcher). Space missions put you in the cockpit of your space fighter, and generally play like a simplified version of a space shooter, similar to something like Rogue Squadron or Strike Suit Zero.

The game is technically open world in that you can go anywhere, land on any planet and walk around, but since there's a war happening in real-time in the background, there's not a lot of time to explore. Completing missions gets you rank points (which give you promotions to advance your career) and money, which you use to upgrade your gear for the "on foot" sections and your spaceship. You can also get skill points to level up your character. However, there isn't a lot of customization here. Each faction has only one character model, which you can't change (humans can choose a few different skin tones), and one spaceship model, which also never changes. You can't even change your name, as far as I could find, even though it's just a text string. And while you can level up your character, you'll generally get all the upgrades in the game in one playthrough. This isn't inherently a bad thing, just bear in mind that you won't be able to, say, play a stealthy commando one run and a patient sniper the next or anything.

Moment to moment gameplay tends to be pretty shallow. The "on foot" sections are pretty straightforward, just move the cursor over the enemy, hold the trigger, and use a healing item when you get low on health. Space combat is pretty similar, although movement is slightly more complicated, you're still just pounding on enemy shields and popping a shield recharging item when yours get low. Annoyingly, enemies also get health/shield restoring items, meaning that a lot of fights tend to be drawn out affairs where you beat an enemy down to five or ten percent health and he pops a potion and heals back to 100, so you beat him down to five or ten percent again and he pops a potion and heals back to 100, so you beat him down again, and so on, until he runs out of regen items. It's pretty basic stuff, but it does get the job done.

Once you get to max rank, you become your faction's leader, and can direct where you want attacks to focus on, as well as what buildings to build on colonies and so on. This isn't as game changing as it sounds, though, because you can't really control if you win or lose a battle except by going there and killing everyone yourself, and since you can't have more than one attack going at once, you may as well join in on the battle anyway. However, enemies can still attack your bases while you're out, so progress tends to be irregular. You may get back from conquering one planet only to find you've lost two somewhere else. Or, sometimes, none, since the AI's decision making seems to be random instead of adhering to a specific strategy or anything. The endgame does get a bit annoying, too. Story events basically negate the progress you made in the game up to that point, and the challenge ramps up, except "challenge" in this game means massive waves of enemies with titanic health pools that take forever to burn through.

But I don't want to exaggerate the negatives, this game is a lot of fun, especially early on. You advance in rank fast, earning new abilities and upgrades fairly quickly, but never so quickly that you feel overwhelmed. The UI is clunky and ugly, but straightforward and easy to learn. And one of the really great things this game does is gives a sense of scale: you're usually going in to combat with 20 other allies, so you feel like a small part of a large team, rather than some unbeatable lone wolf, which is a neat feeling. On those occasions when you do have to do something solo, that aspect always made it feel special to me, making that jump without a swarm of allies around me felt more dramatic and tense because of their absence.

In terms of graphics and sound, this game is pretty inconsistent, as indie titles often are. There are a few good bits, a lot of the models look fairly nice. But as a whole, the art direction is hit and miss, there are issues with lighting and materials, the environments are very low detail, and so on. Outer space is full of asteroids and fights take place at point-blank range, making the galaxy feel small and cramped, while ground fighting is almost all on a slightly hilly outdoor map with few decorations or geological features making it feel barren and empty. The UI, as I mentioned above, is functional, but clunky to use (especially if you have to use it in combat) requiring a lot of extra clicks and wasting a lot of space. Animations are inconsistent, with some of them being fairly good (the sexy swagger of a Salvation officer) some of them being really bad (the derpy run cycle of a Drone Unity soldier) and a lot of them being flat out missing (like any kind of forward diagonal movement animation, your character just animates like he's running straight forward and drifts to the side). The audio is serviceable, but doesn't really stand out. The game does run at a nice framerate, though, and never crashed or ran in to any other technical problems during my playthrough.

Overall, this is almost a poster child for indie titles. The lacklustre graphics and shallow gameplay are made up for by the fact that this game tries to produce an experience that's mostly fun and unique. It's full of issues that a larger studio could probably have fixed, but the quirky nature of it's core gameplay produces an experience that a more polished title probably wouldn't match. Overall, I can't recommend it to everyone, but I definitely had a lot of fun with this game.

This is not a perfect game. But as a space empire fighter, it is unmatched. There are plenty of gripes, but if you want a game where you take part in ground level invasions, space fleet battles and galactic strategy, there really isn't much else. Find some playthroughs to see if this is your kind of thing, 'cause if it is this game is awesome.

***WARNING SPOILER ALERT***

When I first started playing this game I thought it would be the game I had long waited for. A space type game where you both command and fight, both in space and land. Although it wasn't quite what I had hoped it to be after playing for a little while, I still enjoyed the concept, and enjoyed playing it. When I became the faction leader I proceeded to concentrate on expanding my Empire while gradually destroying my enemies. I was doing really good, and then came the alien invasion. From that point forward it was a full time struggle just to survive and rebuild against their attacks while waiting for the storyline to continue. But I thought to myself, "Well, once I destroy the alien invasion I can go back to finishing the game by defeating my opponents", and decided to see the alien invasion as a good late game variable as it did cause powers to shift, and even allow one faction that was all but destroyed to make a comeback. So I procedeed to follow the storyline which led to the solo attack against the alien mothership, which took about 4 attempts, then landed on the alien homeworld and defeated the "Boss" alien. And then the game ended, apparently with me sacraficing my life to destroy the alien homeworld. So really, once the alien invasion occured, the only objective left in the game is to survive long enough to defeat the alien mothership and Boss on the alien homeworld. Because of this, I was left very disapointed, since the game turned from a changing dynamic of a power struggle to defeat everybody else, to a very narrow storyline of survive long enough for the final battle that ends the game. Overall, would not recomend this game.

It's nothing super fancy, but I enjoyed the ride. Considering the size of the team (Which you should look up, it's surprising!) it was a great job. Perhaps a sequel with a bigger budget will come eventually, which'd be amazing based on this.

I've only played the game for about 15 hours but I absolutely love it. I imagine certain aspects of the game would get repeatative if that's what you focused on but the real beauty of the game is the diversity of play. I've had a good mix of gameplay so far. Huge land battles assaulting enemy ground installations, space battles assaulting space stations, exploring alien planets on foot, and hunting down dangerous pirates in space.

Most recently I've achieved the highest rank and opened up some of the 4X style gameplay. I'm now able to allocate resources towards colony and fleet building as well as dictate where and when my faction will strike next. THIS is where the game truly gets awesome.

Early on I enjoyed the diverse missions but got a little frustrated with how stupidly my faction would chose targets. We lost a lot of ground that way. We'd lose colonies, lose space stations while I was on other missions. It did however add to a sense of urgency to the gameplay.

At first I didn't like that galactic events happened realtime, but after putting in a number of hours it's become one of the better features in my opinion. It adds life to the game; if you sit on your hands and do nothing, your faction's holdings will be crushed. I get to really see my contribution in a way no other game I've played is able to show.

Overall I gotta say it's an amazing game. I wish there were more games like it, but as far as I've seen, it is the only of its kind.

Salvation Prophecy is a good example of how the whole can be greater than its parts. Or something like that. This is an Indy Game made by a person who wanted to create a space game that explored galactic conflict in a way AAA titles wont. The vastly different types of gameplay mean that none are as detailed as a game would be that concentrates on that one aspect. But every part of the game is enjoyable and together made for a fun package. So while the third person shooter part has been done way better in other games, I will still run to the dropship to support the rest of the Salvation troops in the planetary invasion of a Drone colony. And I will join the rest of the Salvation fleet to defend our space station from the Wyr. And having to navigate hyperjumps and wormholes add that unexpected depth.
Yes the graphics are dated. Then again, we don't play indy games for the graphics but for the innovation.
So while this game isn't for everyone, those who want this game may just realize it is exactly the game they want ;)

This game tries to do a whole lot, but accomplishes none of it.

Now I admit, I was hooked at first and the idea and concept of it was amazing to me that you could work your way up from a grunt to faction commander. So amazed that I immediately spent my money on it blindly, just hoping I would get something good out of it atleast. For a good while I most certainly did. However, the game becomes too simple and boring very quickly: There is one gun type, one soldier type, and one spaceship type, and thats it. There is no variation in this game at all. The only variation are the different races which all are basically the same thing with the same progression, but different abilites, statistics, and some different models. There is just no substance at all to this game, and it leaves you wanting so much more to every single aspect of it.

All the ground battles are essentially the same ground battle with varied models, and sometimes they just reuse the same models for different things. Space combat is the same thing essentially, though I admit it is fun for awhile because its got some neat mechanics. Theres somewhat of a fake sense of progression to it that bases get upgrades and ships get upgrades but once all the upgrades are upgraded it is once again just bland. The epic story-line makes it exciting for awhile but then once you get past all the prophecy nonsense its just this really bland game with terrible animations and it just feels half-baked. I'm not the kind of person who cares much about graphics either, its better to have great gameplay and terrible graphics I always say, but this game doesnt have either. The only thing interesting about the gameplay like I said was the prophecy story-line which has a bunch of puzzles, and a nice little sense of discovery that made you feel like you were unearthing something nobody ever knew about, but all it ammounts to is some more half-baked abilities to aid ground battles.

Once you get past the main gimic of the ranking system and you make it to faction-commander you realize just how boring this game is: Being faction commander is not really any different than being the lowest on the totem pole. You don't get to create or leave your own mark on anything in this game, you dont get to customize your character, you dont get to build bases, or try different strategies in battle. Nope. The only thing you get to do as faction commander is tell your guys where to have their next monotonous ground or space battle, which you still have to go fight and essentially win for them by yourself. You dont even get to make a larger fleet of troops or ships, nope just what you've always been fighting with, that or less, which why on earth would you ever want to do that? You dont even get to command your troops in battle, except for telling them to make a retreat.

No customer service what-so-ever either, no updates, nope this is considered a "finished product" though it doesnt feel finished at all. You won't be getting any more out of your 20 bucks than the crap thats already on the table with this one.

My opinion? Don't waste your money. You can take in all this game has to offer from the screenshots above, and actually playing it wont get you very much more out of it.

The combat is clunky on the ground but in space it's good and once you reach the rank of your faction commander that's where the real fun starts as a Sci-Fi Epic simulator. You get to make the missions from the space station your on to attack an enemey station or planet colony and you also have to keep tabs on your stations and colonys to make sure to go and spend your resources wisely.

K for an indie game this is well made. good controler support, decent textures, models and animations, some are a bit wooden lookin but its nothing that will slow you down much. The tutorial is quick, detailed and leave syou able to run play away without thinkin hang on what the hell am i ment to do with that. The ground battles are fun enough, reminds me of a slimmed down and less grindy (thankfully) version of the old star wars battle front games. space combat is pretty fun, fast enough to not be dull and not to slow and grindy to be boring, having an equipment screen and more weapons and gear is nice, adds a little more flavour to fighting, same with kitting out your ship.

The bad for me nothing, some people may not like the graphics as there not AAA standard, again this is an indie game, so expecting AAA quiality graphics is just dumb.

To the creator/s nice job and good luck with future games.

in all its a good fun, decent game, thats well worth a look at and defo worth a play

Salvation Prophecy is an enjoyable space game that starts out as an action game with slight RPG elements but at some point suddenly becomes a strategy survival (kind of) game.

For the content this game packs, it can be played through fairly quickly (took me about 12 hours, although I mostly neglected bounty hunting that run). Still, however, some parts of the game become repetitive quickly, and it is especially annoying that later in the game you still have to partake in the same kinds of missions you take on in the beginning. The only difference then basically is that you're in control of where these missions take place, but delegating (as you would expect to be able in a commanding position) is not a thing here.

Story-wise the game is very linear and simple, but that's okay. The only irks I have with the storyline are that towards the end it often takes longer than necessary for the next story mission to show up.

TL;DR: All in all, this game is quite enjoyable overall. It's certainly got its share of shortcomings, so I wouldn't recommend it for full price, but at any discount you're getting yourself a solid game woth spending some time with.

6.5/10
PROS:
Interesting writting and dialouge
Decent gameplay
Beautiful graphics and design

Cons:
Bad voice acting
AI is not as great as it could be

Neutral:
Control scheme is a bit odd, but learnable and becomes intuitive

It's an indy with the ambition of a AAA. It succeeds in some its goals, fails in others, and yet I somehow still have to give an approve (if barely) for this game. It has a charm to it, sort of that 90's early 2000 charm to it. The dialouge had me genuinely laughing (But christ that voice acting was bad) and I was interested in why each race was fighting to the death. For $5 it was worth a go. Will change my review as I progress in the game.

Very nice game. There's a three-fold progression.

First the tutorial, which takes you through the basics of the game: moving and shooting.

Next comes the progression to commander, where you take missions to gain ranks, either invading a planet, attacking a space station, defending a space station or bounty hunting. In addition to spending money on upgrading your ship and your soldier, you also gain skill points and partake in the Prophecy missions.

Finally, once you attain the rank of commander, YOU decide what YOUR faction will do next. You can exterminate another faction's colony to build your own, which earns you resources, or attack another faction's space station to make room for your own. This has a 4x feel to it.

Once you get into the game, it becomes difficult to stop playing.

Got it for 5 bucks, not really hoping a great game...

I was wrong, this game is awesome, reminds me of Star Wars : Battlefront 2, with no vehicles but with strategy and open world

Whenever it's on sale, don't even hesitate, it will be worth every dollar

I really want to like Salvation Prophecy. It has an amazing concept, a really good storyline with two distinct endings, and plenty of great lore. However, I can't like it. The beginning of the game? Awful. It's mostly grindy, you feel very not powerful, and the like. The middle? Amazingly fun, complex tactical simulation. The ending? Tedious, and even more grindy than the beginning. Without spoiling anything, you can spend the entire game carefully building up an entire empire only to watch it be tore down, with little you can do. Some of the most fun I've had in recent gaming history has been in the middle section of this game, but I honestly don't feel like I can recommend it.

In addition to my other hesitations, the game is very glitchy. There are also missions exclusive to sections of the game, with know way of knowing in advance which missions will vanish. I had to replay the campign just to get some achievements that I missed because I didn't realize the missions would be inaccessible later. The graphics are also wanting, with absolutely no customization available -- and it definitely feels like it's missing.

Overall, Salvation Prophecy is an amazing attempt. I feel like if it had been given the funding it needed, it could have become an amazing game, similar in caliber to the other space epics but distinct, bringing its own unique perspective on the space sim. But it wasn't. It felt far too much like an indie game that desperately wanted to become something mainstream, it just needed the funding.

This game has filled a Wing Commander-sized hole in me.
It's two games in one, really, the best part of which is a ship-based combat one, which is very reminiscent of Wing Commander. That alone makes the game worthwhile for me.
The other half of the game is a third-person shooter. That half reminded me of the Star Wars Battlefront games, though in combat alone. No respawning, but that's okay. It's simple enough that you're not going to do much dying, anyway.
If classic spaceship combat is your bag, then pick up this title.
