Development update 2018-12-15

3.13 is almost ready! I've updated the Windows build in the pretest branch for all the brave testers who want to try the new planet missions.

In some missions, like Making enemies, Intelligence assault or Unrequested demolition you will visit planets of a civ whose ancestral enemy wants you cause some annoyance, if by annoyance we consider leveling down entire buildings. You will get combat objectives on the planet and will have to pass several phases, depending on the difficulty rating. At insane level you will have to fight a boss level mob!

Defending friends, We got spooks and Stop them early are similar in concept, but this time the ancestral enemy is camping on the planets of your friends and you need to deal with the invaders and their constructions. Reinforcements will be called, for sure.

Both groups of missions are based on the ancestral enemy system between civs, and even civs that hate you will give you missions. This is an easy way to gain their favor (and to sink your reputation with their foes, of course).

Pesky fauna and Disease outbreak are meant to be earlier level missions for planets whose civ is friendly to you. Don't be fooled by their lack of warfare, at higher difficulty levels they are really hard, and reward just as good items and bonuses as the others.

Development update 2018-10-29

After a two month pause to get some rest and some work done in non-WaW related business, we are back to working on 3.13. The next item is a big one: playable random planet missions. This is a major feature and it will take longer than the previous miscellany features in 3.13. The work presented in this update post is not yet published in the pretest branch (playing just one kind of mission would not be very interesting anyway)..

Planet missions

The big missing piece for planet gameplay now has its foundations in place. One planet per system can now get a random mission, and it will be displayed in the galaxy map with the universally familiar icon:

Hovering over the star or planet will display the full mission information, as opening the planet window:

Missions can have 4 difficulty levels, and by default, their rewards are proportional to the planet level. The player can choose to purchase a reroll of the rewards to match their unlocked tech level, but this will also increase the mission level.

Once on the ground the player will need to solve one or more objectives, and not all of them will be about killing. For example the current test mission requires to apply healing in a new way:

Now that the foundations are ready and one test mission has been implemented we will focus on adding more mission types.

About This Game

A new adventure for The Spatials!

Five thousand years into the future humanity has made contact with other civilizations and has settled into new worlds. The Human Federation along with their friends the Crusantian Bunch are looking into expanding into a new area of the galaxy, and have elected you as their station manager. The Spatials is the name of your faction, and your mission is to build the most successful colony of the galaxy, at any cost.

You will make friends and enemies along the way. Run your station as a well oiled production machine. Don't forget living quarters and providing all the vital products and facilities your staff needs. At some point you'll be so famous that visitors from all over the galaxy will want to stay in your station, for sweet filthy lucre. Build your space ships and explore other worlds to find valuable resources and purchase them from your friends. Or invade their planets and take them by force, it's your choice. But be prepared for the consequences...

The Spatials: Galactology is The Spatials reimagined as a deeper, more rewarding simulation game. Greatly expanded content, systems and AI make the game more detailed.

About Weird and Wry

Weird and Wry is a Barcelona game development studio founded in 2014 by two brothers: Carlos and Max Carrasco. Carlos (a programmer) and Max (an artist) share a love for simulation games and classic play -- which heavily influenced The Spatials, their first project. Inspired by the great classic sim games of the '90s, The Spatials combined classic base-building gameplay (based on isometric tile room building) with a real-time combat system and an exploration campaign. The Spatials was released on Steam in March 2015 and took off! Thanks to its success and growing fan base, The Spatials spawned a sequel -- The Spatials: Galactology, which updates the original concept with deeper gameplay and a whole new take on the space station management business.
