What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We believe the game is already a lot of fun and we don't want you to miss out on that, but we still have some features we would like to add. Providing the game in Early Access is a wonderful opportunity to know what our players want most. Do you want more weapons? More game modes? Do you want achievements? Dedicate servers? Lobbies support? Ranked matches? More ships? More swag? Let us know!”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We plan to stay in early access for one year. this should give us enough time to implement what we have in mind. We might stretch it a bit if the community comes up with some wonderful addition that we haven't thought of and we really want to include.”

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

“We are currently exploring the following additions (not necessary in this order):
- Lobby/matchmaking support
- Better Editor usability
- Ranked matches
- Achievements support
- Tutorials
- (Public) dedicated server
- More bundled maps
- In-Game chat”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game currently contains the single-player mode with few training levels and the multi-player mode (both split screen and online) supporting 5 different game types (co-op, deathmatch, team deathmatch, capture the flag, conquest). You can also host a match on LAN or online (the latter requires port forwarding).
There is currently one official game server but we are working to setup more.

Included is the original soundtrack by great artist Stév

The game also contains a map Editor that allows you to create custom maps to play with your friends”

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

“We plan to slightly adjust the price as more features are added, but the released price won't be much higher.”

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

“We'll stay active here on Steam to answer your questions and hear your suggestions.

We believe our game can deliver hours of fun, but we are truly interested in what you have to say about it, and how we can improve it.

We will keep in touch with the community with frequent development updates and we will assign priority to different features based on the community response.”

About This Game

Gravity is fun!

Aequitas Orbis is a 2D space game where players pilot their spaceships through gravity fields and challenge each other in various disciplines. From last man standing to capture the flags, from cooperative to conquest mode.
The game allows for up to 4 players in local games (split screen) and up to 8 players in online games.
The game also allows you to create custom levels to play with friends via the built-in level editor.

Challenge your friends, save the planet, bring justice back to the orbit!

Highlights

  • Fast-paced, 2D, skill-based shooter game with an innovative gameplay.
  • Local split screen multiplayer (up to 4 players).
  • Online/LAN multiplayer (up to 8 players).
  • 5 different game modes.
  • Bundled editor that allows you to create custom maps.
  • Windows/Mac/Linux support.

Innovative Gameplay

In Aequitas Orbis your spaceship is in a realistic 2D gravitational space, where planets and moon pulls you towards them.
You can, of course, achieve stable orbits like satellites do around Earth, or you can jump from one planet to another like space agencies' probes does.

In this environment, the player is challenged with different tasks, based on the game mode:

  • In single player the goal is to destroy all the asteroids floating around the space before they collide with a planet
  • In cooperative mode the goal is the same, but you'll be able to play with friends and you'll have to survive endless wave of asteroids
  • In deathmatch mode you'll have to destroy other players to reach a certain score and win. This mode is playable in teams (eg. 2vs2, 3vs3, etc)
  • In capture the flag mode each team will have a planet assigned, and a flag spawning around it, to goal is to steal the enemy flag and bring it back to your own
  • In conquest mode, some planets will be conquerable, take a stable low orbit around it, and you'll start capturing it. Once a planet it's capture it'll start generating points for your team. But be careful, planets can be captured back the same way!

Maneuvering in space is hard and requires some time to get used to it, but anyone can master it! A hint? Try to think about where you want to be 5 seconds from now instead of trying to go there now.
