Masterspace v4.0

Dear Masterspace Community:

We are happy to finally announce the release of Masterspace, which signifies the transition from early access to final release after a development time of more than three years. All features from the original design plan (and much more) have been implemented and this final update contains a lot of bug fixes, as well as implementing some of the most commonly requested features by the community.



The main new feature is the introduction of truly infinite worlds to Masterspace by allowing travel between different sectors, each containing a star system full of planets. This is enabled in-game by the construction of the very expensive Masterspace Conduit. Furthermore, sensors are now functional within the game and may be used to scan planets from orbit, in order to detect e.g. prospective resources.

This update also introduces different gravity levels on planets, which may be modified by the construction of gravity (or anti-gravity) generators. Furthermore, the world generation scripts have been optimized and the distribution of resources on planets has been completely rebalanced.



We apologize for the delay and lack of updates lately and thank you all for your patience. We would like to extend our thanks and gratitude to the community and all who have all supported the development during these years. Special thanks are also extended to Roland La Goy for generously composing a fitting soundtrack for Masterspace.

Live long and prosper,
Kristofer Jansson
Master Technologies

About This Game

Masterspace is a game about mining, creating and exploring, featuring fully destructible environments and spaceships that allow you to travel between different planets. Use explosives to mine metal ores or watch your newly constructed home get smashed to pieces by a meteorite impact. As you venture into space to discover new planets, the hull integrity of your custom built spaceship will be tested.

You start out by mining stone and chopping down trees to produce primitive building materials. As the game progresses you will be able to craft more advanced materials and ultimately construct a spaceship. Materials are also used to fabricate a wide range of different objects, ranging from simple furnaces and sawmills, to advanced technological achievements such as laser turrets and deep space sensors.

Features:

  • Fully Destructible planets and Spaceships
  • Fully destructible environments where planets, buildings and spaceships are completely customizable.

  • Explore a Universe Full of Different Planets
  • Discover new planets with strange lifeforms or planets covered with ice or lava. Spaceships may seamlessly land on all planets without any loading screens.

  • Mine Resources, Construct Buildings and Produce Goods
  • A vast amount of different materials may be used to construct buildings and spaceships or to craft objects.

  • Innovative Construction System
  • A revolutionary hybrid voxel engine allows block-based buildings to be placed on top of smooth, yet fully destructible, terrain.

  • Dynamic Liquids
  • A completely dynamic liquid system allows water to flow freely on the planets. Pumps and pipelines may be constructed to manipulate the water flow.

  • Spherical Planets
  • Playing on spherical planets introduces new challenges and innovative gameplay possibilities.

  • Multiplayer Support
  • Challenge your friends to a space race or invite them to visit your planet. Cooperate to mine resources, complete scenarios or construct the next world wonder.

  • Designed for Easy Modding
  • Designed for easy modding where most aspects of the game may be customized by Lua scripts.

Pre-Release Review
Now that it's "released" I'll write a quick review.

It's unfinished. The dev had a grand vision, but not the talent to build what he hoped, and "releasing" it is just a way of saying "Yeah, I'm not working on this anymore." Which has really been the case for over a year.

The game is ugly, broken, and most of the claimed features just plain never made it in.

The dev has cut his losses, and so should you, by spending your money elsewhere.

Early Access Review
POS ABANDONED game. Won't run, partially crashed to desktop, had trouble getting to task manager to kill it. Had to reboot to fixed the desktop that was all screwed up. Went back into Steam, but Steam crashed over and over. Couldn't reinstall Steam, had to uninstall (and all games) and reinstall Steam. F U and your game.

I normally don't get this ♥♥♥♥♥♥ off over a game that won't run, but this is truely an exception.

Game was okay pre-Steam, just glitchy, just tough to learn.

Early Access Review
The developer is yet another POS coward who ran away rather than either completing the game he made a decision to sell prior to completion, or at least publicly admit he was incapable of completing the game. So because he is either afraid of conflict, or an outright scammer, he contributes to the trouble legitimate independent developers are having with early access.

Valve needs to hold enough of the early access funds in escrow to make it worthwhile for developers to finish their game rather than crapping out yet another set of promises stacked on top of a glorified set of legos and raking in the $$$.
