All you have is a basic ship, barely fit for combat, with it you'll start your journey and empire. A space sandbox, inspired by the classics and standing on their shoulders.

Сообщение от разработчиков

Почему ранний доступ?

“As a "one man dev" player feedback, input and criticism are crucial. I'm making a game for you (gamers like me) and I want you to enjoy it.

I've been incredibly lucky, making games is now my profession. That alone is incredible and a life long dream come true. It gets even better when players play the actual game, give feedback, criticism and we improve the game together.

Players are a true test of a game, to be the best that the game can be - Early Access is a critical step in the game's development.”

Сколько примерно эта игра будет в раннем доступе?

“The goal is to stay in Early Access for around a year. The game won't be rushed to meet any artificial deadline, as there is no publisher or outside pressure to force an incomplete release.”

Чем планируемая полная версия будет отличаться от версии в раннем доступе?

“The full version is planned to have:

  • Many more assets - space ships, stations, and bases.
  • A larger sandbox with more events and life.
  • An optional story line and side quests/missions.
  • Territory, base and property capture and ownership.
  • A whole lot more polish.

Because I tend to frequently update - you won't have to wait for long stretches of time to enjoy and test new features.”

Каково текущее состояние версии в раннем доступе?

“Void Destroyer 2 is about a year and a half into its development. However original game's (Void Destroyer) code base has been copied over and then branched into Void Destroyer 2. Meaning that many features and polish already exist.

Because the original game was a linear mission/story based game and the sequel is a sandbox game - the sandbox elements are the majority focus of development.

In regards to the new sandbox elements - the current state has the majority of the basics of the game play, though some are in very early and rough stages.

The majority focus of development up to date has been on the "single ship" game play and initial building of a small group of wing men.

  • You can explore a living sandbox, with various factions and events.
  • You can do basic missions for civilian, bounty hunter, mining, military and pirate factions.
  • Buy and upgrade ships for yourself or add to the fleet (fleet management is very bare).
  • Hire help for combat, trading or mining.
  • Basic piracy, pay ransom to avoid death or demand ransom from those weaker than you.
  • You can setup a basic trading/mining/economy system to further earn credits.
  • And more!

Изменится ли цена игры после выхода из раннего доступа?

“The price is unlikely to change.

Having different pricing during early access and release - can sometimes have negative consequences among the game's community. Its simpler for me to just have the same price.”

Как вы планируете вовлекать сообщество в разработку игры?

“By being available and receptive to any and all feedback.

I really mean this - I'll answer forum posts, emails and friend requests related to discussing and improving the game. Just like I did during Early Access of my first project, and continue to do so now.

I'll also post updates and seek out feedback on specific features, additions, and changes.”

Dev Video - Story Missions!

Hey guys!

Here's a new update vid:

https://youtu.be/wgyZnbqZJD0
Direct Link: YouTube


Story Missions:

These past few months were spent via working on "main story" type missions. I'm happy to say that I've completed a "first pass" of what might turn out to be somewhere between 1/3 and 1/2 of the main story (hard to tell at this stage).

If you've kept up with these updates you might recall me often planning on starting working on main story missions, but other things ended up being on the agenda - so it feels good that I finally buckled down and worked on this element of the game.

Honestly - it wasn't as bad as I thought! Back in Void Destroyer 1 days - I had a pretty rough time adding story missions, often it would take me about a month to add an hour of game play - a terrible ratio in my opinion!

Luckily I think that Void Destroyer 2 - being a sandbox game - story missions are just part of the core experience. Versus like in Void Destroyer 1 - being central.

The other element that made adding story missions feel smooth is possibly that I have a lot of time on my hands - to think and plan! While changing diapers, feeding baby, rocking baby, walks with baby, etc etc!

It's a big life change, but it's getting more and more stable as I'm happy to report that my lil guy has slept all the way through the night for the past week. Let's hope that it's a trend!

The other neat aspect of working on story missions (versus new features) is that it lets me fix bugs (as reported by you guys) versus adding new ones (when I add new features) so that feels good to sort of "catch up."

Hope you guys enjoy the new story missions and post feedback!

What's next?

I'm most likely to continue working on story missions - hopefully getting to somewhere towards 2/3, then my plan is to focus more on late game elements. For example - base capture mechanics and response. So you won't see the military stand idly by after you've captured their base, they'll try to get it back!

--

As always - Thank you for your incredible support!

Void Destroyer 2 - Development Recap

Hey guys!

Seeing as the game has changed it's look and feel dramatically over the past few months - I've decided to do a bit of a marketing push. So I've created and added new trailers/videos and screenshots on the game's store page.

New Trailer - Alpha May 2018 -

New explainer video - What is Void Destroyer 2 -

New mini tutorial video - Basic controls -
https://youtu.be/lBfwDJEm-v8
Direct Link: YouTube


For those interested in what's been going on going on since the game launched on Early Access - here's a summary:

  • Tons of bug fixed, tons of bugs added, tons of bugs fixed
  • Tons of new ships, bases and other objects
  • Better fleet management
  • Fuel mechanic added (faster overworld travel)
  • Bunch of auto generated missions
  • Bunch of scripted missions (faction missions)
  • Ship capture
  • Black market bases
  • Field ownership
  • Rapid travel gates added
  • Base capture/blockades/ownership/management
  • Base - building ships and platforms
  • Remote interface (turning the game into a quasi 4x game)
  • Mobile bases
  • Multiple fleets and non-player fleets
  • Trade interface (expanded trade ship management)
  • Dynamic economy and rebalance
  • New skyboxes
  • New dynamic skybox system

For those interested in what's on the agenda before release - here's a summary:

  • Main story
  • Faction response to base war
  • Proper implementation of carriers
  • More dynamic sandbox (events?)
  • Better implementation of "Kind" faction (missions auto/scripted)
  • More ships (focusing on larger ships)
  • More features - that I didn't even think of yet (!!!)
  • More bug fixes
  • More polish

While the above list may seem small... Adding a main story requires multiple months of thinking up and scripting missions/events/happenings, the addition of new ships, upgrades, bases, objects, etc. New features/mechanics/tweaks to support the story - and various other things I can't even think of yet.


Thank you very much for your incredible support - without you Void Destroyer 2 in it's current state wouldn't have been possible as with many indie/one man projects - sales fund development.


I hope that you are as excited as I am about the future of the project!


Thanks!

Paul

Рецензии

“The main draw for Void Destroyer 2, other than its great aesthetics, gameplay, and openness is its current development position. As it stands within the week of its early access launch, Void Destroyer 2 is a very solid and fun game, but the knowledge that it is only going to get bigger and better the longer it is out and the more people buy it, makes this game a worthy investment of time. The dev is extremely open and active, and this instills great confidence in the ability to bring this game to its true potential.”

Об этой игре

Start with barely a ship, end with an empire.


Void Destroyer 2 is currently a work in progress (including this page) - with Early Access started in September of 2016 and a planned Release in 2018.

What's the hook? What's unique?

Like in most space sandbox games - in Void Destroyer 2 you start with a single ship then work your way up in the world. What's unique - a single ship isn't the end, the dominance of all you can see is. Your first ship is just a step on the path to a massive fleet, from tiny fighters to massive capital ships. Your thirst for power doesn't have to end there, you'll own bases and territory, hard won from their original owners. Use them to build fleets to expand and conquer. From a tiny fighter, easily destroyed, to a immortal space god! That's Void Destroyer 2.

What will you - the player - be doing?

  • Do easy "milk runs" in your starting ship.
  • Upgrade it and buy better ships to do more dangerous assignments.
  • Hire temporary wing men, then start building your fleet via buying additional ships.
  • Leave fighters behind, upgrade to a gunship, then a corvette, then a frigate, and beyond. As your power grows, so do your opportunities.
  • Fight from the cockpit or bridge of your ship and command your forces via a tactical interface.
  • Branch off into trading and mining, take over a asteroid field and be paid for your protection, or be a ruthless pirate demanding ransom and taking cargo.
  • At some point, the only way to grow your strength will be by taking things from others. Capture ships and build up a fleet capable of taking a base.
  • Owning a base expands your power even further, you can now direct your forces from it, no longer are you tied to a single ship or fleet.
  • Use your base to build defenses, and ships - soon you'll have more than one, and after that you'll have them all.


Void Destroyer 2 is a space sandbox game set in a desolate asteroid field. These are dangerous times with many opportunities, for the explorers, the brave, the cunning, and the ruthless.



Chose the path of a mercenary protecting transport ships. The path of a pirate, preying on the weak. A bounty hunter who will settle scores for a price. An entrepreneur, starting your own business as a trader or miner. Become a tycoon with others working for you, protect your assets by assigning escorts.



The path to domination isn't always a straight one, if you fight hard enough, smart enough, nothing will stand in your way.

As your wealth grows you'll upgrade your ship, then purchase new more powerful ones. Eventually being able to build up a fleet of combat and non-combat ships. What's a fleet without a way to tell them what to do? Void Destroyer 2 has a built in real time strategy (RTS) control method optimized for controlling multiple ships and fleets.

Void Destroyer 2 is inspired by classic sandbox games, but is also a response to them:


  • Open sandbox for you to explore.
  • Fly any ship - from small fighters to huge carriers.
  • Multiple control methods. From direct flight to capital ship oriented schemes.
  • Made for the PC (not consoles) and for PC gamers. Learning curve and challenges ahead.
  • Build up a fleet.
  • Own multiple ships? Easily give them orders via a RTS control method.
  • Own multiple ships? Easily switch direct control from ship to ship.
  • Time dilation (slow down time) - make time for decisions and tactics.
  • Missions and events.
  • Conquer territory and own property. (Early Steps - in development during Early Access)
  • An engaging story line, with unique missions and boss battles. (Not currently in build - planned feature during Early Access)
  • Be a pirate, then become a pirate lord.

Void Destroyer 2 emphasizes combat, tactics and strategy, with battles ranging from one on one to fleets versus fleets. With a simple, manageable yet engaging economy and offers loads of freedom to the player on how to play and who to play as.
