Testers sought for Mini-Sandbox DLC

Hey guys!
I'm looking for some Void Destroyer fans to help out testing the upcoming "Mini Sandbox DLC"

Mini sandbox DLC? What's that? You ask...
Well its a planned free DLC to Void Destroyer.

Its basically what the name says - a fairly small and basic sandbox - set in the Void Destroyer universe (after the events of the main story).

I want to keep this brief because there will be a larger post/announcement as the DLC gets closer to release but here's the basic info:

As I started working on Void Destroyer 2 - I realized I could release a sort of a proof of concept/prototype of it as it is fairly playable - though simplistic game (in the general scope of sandbox games). Simplistic for various reasons - for example there are no civilians (due to not having assets to have a civilian faction) and just getting started on the sandbox route.

Anyway - I thought you guys might enjoy the mini sandbox so I hope that becomes the case and this DLC adds to the value of the game and your enjoyment.

Back on topic

I'm looking for a few dedicated testers to donate about an hour or so of their time testing the initial build and then a few more hours for later builds. If you are interested and if you have racked up a bit of time on Void Destroyer (so that I know that you'll be ok being tossed into the DLC at its earlyish state).

Post a message on this forum: http://steamcommunity.com/app/259660/discussions/11/

We'll go from there.


Thanks - and thank you for supporting the project.

About This Game

Combining the best of space combat and real time strategy. Victory can be tactical, a dogfight or capital ship slugging match - depending on how you decide to achieve it.

A desolate asteroid field on the edge of the solar system erupts in war. Your forces rely on you to take the battle to the enemy. Build up defenses and fleets, repair and upgrade your command ship, lead your forces to reclaim and conquer territory.

Game play:

The seat of a fighter, the bridge of a cruiser and a tactical battle map are your tools of war. Void Destroyer puts you in command and gives you ultimate freedom over the your forces and the art of war.

If you ever wanted to directly control your forces in a real time strategy game or be able to build ships and command to your wing-men and fleets in a space combat simulator like you can in a RTS - this is the game for you. Void Destroyer combines elements from space combat simulators and real time strategy games. No longer are you limited on how to control and command. Battles are waged on your terms, you are given the tools. How you use them is up to you.

Jump into a fighter to engage in dogfights, then switch into a frigate to take out an enemy corvette. Build defensive platforms to augment the security of your base. Issue commands to your attack ships to distract enemy defenders to allow your marine frigates to board an enemy's base. Defend and oversee asteroid mining craft to have the resources necessary to support your fleets.

By combining elements of two genres, enemies can be more brutal, fights can be larger and you can overcome greater challenges.

Think there's not enough time? Use time dilation (slow down time) to make time for tactics.

Features:

  • A mixture of space combat and real time strategy games - two games in one, how you play is up to you
  • A story line, opportunities, plot twists, boss fights, and many surprises
  • Pilot ships - from small drones to heavy cruisers
  • Instant ship switching - all ships are pilot-able
  • Multitude of weapon systems in the hands of both friends and foes
  • Tactical Mode - easily issue orders and manage your forces
  • Build platforms
  • Build ships
  • Research new technology
  • Upgrade your command ship
  • Combine the use of command ship abilities for devastating tactics, use a tractor beam to pull an enemy closer then annihilate it an upgraded main gun
  • Asteroid mining
  • Flight engine combines six degree of freedom with Newtonian physics balanced to allow for dogfights
  • Pilot via joystick or mouse (mouse flight - includes two different modes)
  • Multiple controllers (HOTAS and other) are supported
  • Command view - camera and mouse controls optimized for controlling turrets and piloting larger ships
  • If the role of a pilot isn't your thing - you can let the ship's crew do their job
  • Capture enemy bases and ships
  • Mod support - "mod nearly everything" philosophy
  • Instant Action scenarios - unlocked via playing the main game/story mode
  • Arena (dogfight) and Skirmish (RTS maps) modes
  • Battle Editor - create your own maps, unlimited game play on your own terms
  • Unlock system - as you research new ships and defeat enemy ships, they become available for use in the battle editor
  • Formations - pre-defined and custom
  • Community input valued by a responsive developer
  • In game guide/manual and tutorial system
  • Difficulty options - make the game more forgiving to get through a tough spot if you so chose

Void Destroyer is a "labor of love" a project that I can't envision not working on. I will continue adding new features and content to the game even post the "official release." And hope to create a lasting impression on gaming history.
