Update #10: Some more improvements

Just a small one today.

Patch notes:

- The Option to auto-pause the worldmap on loading from town/battle also applies to when crafting is complete. The intent is to help players who miss the notification not waste crafting time idling.

- Expanded the comparison tooltip (on mouse-over) for Weapons added in the last update to Armor & Shields too.

- Fixed a bug with the squad sometimes moving to a new destination when clicking on the dialog choices to exit an interaction.

The weekend is nearly here, have a good one all and thanks for the support! Oh, happy Valentines! :)

Update #9: More UI & QoL improvements

Some more improvements based on player feedback.

Patch notes:

- Added a "Get All" icon in the post-battle loot menu to improve QoL. The tooltip will warn of the potential of carrying too much weight.

- Added a weapon comparison tooltip. It will cycle through your recruits and find the most appropriate equipped weapon to compare with the mouse-over target when in the barter menu. When inside the squad inventory menu, it will compare with the currently selected recruit.

- Changed the armor crafting to mention Takaya's level for more clarity.

- Caravan guards on the map will carry more munitions so they can put up a better fight vs hostiles.

Non-patch notes:

It's been a slow start on Steam, but if I am able to earn enough money to pay the bills, then I will remain on the gamedev journey and begin a new project (while fixing bugs and polishing Nomads of the Fallen Star).

For the next game project, I'm quite torn, so if you want to share your feedback and thoughts please do. I have narrowed it down to 2 game ideas.

1. A Heroes of Might & Magic 3 inspired dynamic open-world. Fantasy setting, with the focus on Empire building and management. Taking care of the supply chain to keep your people happy and productive, while you hire heroes to lead armies (with various mercenary recruits) on a worldmap. You can build farms, workshops & armory etc. in towns that you liberate to produce equipment for your armies.

2. A grand scale space epic, focus on larger fleet battles and Empire building & management. There's lots of spacesims these days, which is why I am hesitant to go with this option, but in my mind, I see the potential for a much better Star Nomad 2 style game as I've learnt a lot over the past few years to create meaningful depth.


ps. If you enjoy the game, and want to say thanks, please leave a review! :)

About This Game

Set on a distant uncharted & hostile planet, where descendants of a colony fleet that struck disaster have clung on to survive until the eventual rescue. However, decades later, without contact from the fleet, the growing colonies have begun skirmishes over limited resources.

A full blown war of conquest looms on the horizon that could risk humanity's fragile existence on this harsh new world.

As the chaos approaches, you take the role as the leader of a rag-tag bunch of scavengers / mercenaries. Your goal is to scavenge, trade, sabotage, hunt, fight and help conquer your way to fame and glory.

Along the journey, you will meet allies that will join in the struggle to survive the wasteland, and perhaps together, you can unravel the mystery on the origins of the colony and change the fate of all those who call this barren world home.

Key Features:

  • An intelligent economic simulation creates opportunities for emergent gameplay, where the world reacts to player actions or inaction. A world where your choices matters as the factions try to survive and wage wars of conquest.

  • A competitive design where other groups of free scavengers roam the world seeking the same opportunities to exploit as the player. Want those precious advanced alloys from the recent fallen space debris? Or that lucrative trade request? So do others, and they will not appreciate your rag-tag gang interfering.

  • Factions will raise militia armies to defend or raid and conquer their enemies. Each recruit needs to be equipped and supplied, including basics such as munitions, without which, their guns will fall silent in battle.

  • Mercenary contracts that carry consequences. Be it clearing raiders for a faction to help their economy grow, or sabotage their enemy's outposts to cripple their war capability.

  • Equip your squad with many different weapons, each providing a unique balance and tactical options. Train their combat skills as they gain levels, and specialize them further with a selection of many perks.

  • Hunt the xenobeasts on this hostile world and use their skin, carapace, and organs in crafting useful items and armor.

  • An epic sci-fi story awaits, along with side-quests and random encounters.
