What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Early Access provides us the best opportunity to reach the largest engaged audience possible. Having a passionate & invested community with a willingness to provide immediate feedback is key to our iterative design approach.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We estimate that, as of our Early Access release we are ~18 months away from a streamlined Core Module release (including time in Beta testing). It should be mentioned that unexpected items and delays can pop up during development that could alter this estimate; although we will do everything we can to minimize the impact of such events when/if they occur.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“The full version will include 3 unique playable ships as well as a hybrid scripted/dynamic single player campaign.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Rogue System is currently in a playable Alpha state with a single pilot-able ship & multiple scripted tutorial missions representing roughly 1/10 of the final game content.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“We've offered Rogue System at a discount during its Early Access development, so the price should increase once we achieve a feature complete build.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We will continue regular build releases & developer updates while soliciting community comment on bugs & features requests.”

Rogue System Version 0.3.02.0 Progress

I'm about mid-way through the work for the upcoming update. This will allow you to create a new career, manage saved careers, and resume a career. Obviously, this means being able to save your progress while inflight.

Being able to save and resume is a critical step in developing sandbox gameplay, which will offer you several ways to "earn a living" so you can maintain and upgrade your ship (or buy new ships). Likewise, you will begin to notice that the age of your ship, and the parts installed on it, will suffer age-related malfunctions (amongst other items that not having your ship constantly reset will reveal).

I've finished updating the galaxy generator, player avatar creator, and front-end UI to make use of these. All that's left is to finish the code that allows you to save while inflight. I hope to have this finished, and this update out, by the end of January of the new year.

Thank you; and for those that celebrate (whatever you celebrate), I hope you all have VERY Happy Holidays, and a wonderful New Year!!!

Rogue System Version 0.3.01.0 Is Now Available

Looking at the upcoming art for all the ships that will be required for the campaign missions, I've decided (since this is still a one-man effort) to move up some of the sandbox-like gameplay elements, such as an economy model and the buying/selling of trade goods. As well, I'll be working on the art and code that will allow you to upgrade and repair your ship. I think things like this will allow more gameplay possibility in a shorter time without the overhead of all the ship art that would need to be done otherwise.

To go along with this, I've introduced the ability to refuel your ship while docked (you'll need to request it from the station's STC). In the next update this will cost funds, thus introducing the idea of having to earn funds to maintain your ship. I'll be expanding on this over the coming updates. Also, the battery system has had its "final" revision, and with that it's now possible to remove a physical battery from one ship and put it in another. In the next update you'll be able to sell or repair used batteries, and buy new/refurbished ones.

The only caveat for all of this is that you can not yet save a mission in progress. This is the VERY NEXT item I'm working on, and I'll release an update solely for this as soon as it's finished and tested. Once this happens, you'll begin to see that flight hours DO affect the functionality of ship systems, and the need to keep them maintained.

I do understand that many of you are looking forward to the campaign missions, and purchased RogSys for that reason. I'm VERY sorry for the delay that this new focus is going to have on the planned campaign. I have EVERY intention of still doing them. I just feel I need to start introducing some gameplay sooner rather than later, and the only way to do that is to focus on gameplay that does not rely so heavily on art. I hope that makes sense to everyone....

About This Game

Rogue System's goal is to depict the possibilities of space exploration and combat within a realistic environment--choosing not to ignore the "science" in science-fiction. Key features do/will include proper orbital mechanics for all objects in space; detailed ship system control, functionality, inter-dependency and damage reaction; and the ability to move freely from one ship to another, EVA, and effect repairs while in flight.

Rogue System’s Core Module (CM) will be a complete campaign-driven sim on its own. It utilizes both dynamic as well as scripted missions to allow for greater replay-ability while telling an intriguing story.

Finally, Rogue System is fully moddable, allowing both DCI as well as the sim’s community to add new ships, missions, and even campaigns.

Later, Extension Modules (EM) will add even more gameplay.
