The Galactic Princess Awakens
Dear Captains,
Dear fans and backers,
And all those who hoped and were waiting for an excellent game of space pirating,


It has been some time since the development team did not report on the progress of the project. And for good reason: the development of Galactic Princess has stopped since last summer. But I come to you with excuses, and good news.


Let's start with a quick summary:
- All backers who have not received their Steam key to access the alpha build can ask us for their key via the form of our site;
- The development of the game stopped between the summer of 2016 and March 2017 for personal reasons;
- The development of the game has resumed !

Description
Space Survival Sandbox

Dive into an epic adventure through deep space.
Find the princess to restore peace, and rule the universe.
As the captain of your own smuggler spaceship, lead your crew to a life of glory!
How you do that is up to you!

The ways to achieve this aim are multiple. From trading merchandises, even illegal ones such as space drugs or slaves if you choose so, to using diplomatic solutions.
But never forget though, that the best option remains piracy, but with piracy often comes the price of blood.
So guard your treasures and beware your enviousopponents, especially of the corrupted members of the Spacecop alliance.


To survive in space you will need to earn the best equipment:

- powerful engines.
- mighty generators.
- deadly weapons.
- medic systems.
- research labs.
- control systems.



Crew vs. Crew

In the wilds of space, everyone does their best to survive: some use diplomacy, others prefer less shady methods such as theft, but most of them will find a far greater interest in fighting. Their purpose?
Steal your equipment and enslave your crew.

To bring your battle to a successful conclusion, you will need a clear understanding of your opponents’ capacities, and of course know the strengths and weaknesses of your crew like no other. But no victory is a coincidence: your decisions will affect the outcome of the battle.

The battle crew's role is to protect the ship from invasions, as well as invade the enemies’ ship in return.
You must take their races into consideration: equip your melee fighters with close range weapons and your gunners with long range weapons.

Equip your crew with the best equipment in the galaxy to increase their chances of survival.







External Ship Design

Build every aspect of your spaceship, define its shape and functions, and plan your strategy accordingly to your placement choices: engines, weapons, shields, sensors...



Build a heavy fighter, with many weapons and shields but only a few engines, creating a slow but very efficient battle cruiser; or create a blitz fighter, very maneuverable, allowing easy dodging and battle escape.

You can also opt for a more balanced configuration,or even create specific designs (canons only on the right side, and shields on the left)

Everything is possible! Just define the strategy that suits you the most.



Your ship’s physics will react to those choices!

Reach the speed of light to explore the galaxy.






Function Sample

• Weapons: There are numerous types of weapons to equip your ship with, their purpose: protect your fleet and destroy the enemy.
offensive: plasma lasers, laser beams, rockets,multi-directional explosives, anti-mattercharges, fusion sticking bombs, mines…
defensive: decoy, bait,cloaking device, electromagnetic charges, time-bender...

• Engines: Engines affect your movements speed and precision, they allow you to fly faster as well as to perform tricky maneuvers, crucial against an overpowered enemy or trapped inan asteroid field!
You can also reach the speed of light to explore the galaxy.

• Shields: Shields will cover specific area of your ship; choose wisely which to protect to assure the safety of your ship’s vital functions and crew.

• Sensors: Sensors will provide you information about the enemies and quests: distance, level, type...
They help for the comfort of your navigation and in your strategy planning.




Internal Ship Design

• Monitors: In Galactic Princess most of the feedbacks aren’t represented through a classic interface but through a diegetic interface, which means all the information will be integrated on your ship’s screens and panels.



• Engineering room: This room allows the engines and shields to function, and so to protect your ship. Adding more engineering rooms will boost their efficiency.



• Artificial intelligence room: This room concerns the support functions of the ship, and provides feedback such as: O² level, fire alert, enemy alert, door statuses…



• Medic systems: Used to heal your crew from space troubles. Further on, you will even be able to upgrade them with some cyber-implants while recovering..



• Prison: Capture a political prisoner? Keep them here and trade them for some needed supplies or information.



• Cargo hold: The place to keep your contraband goods. Cargo can also be used to store scout ships.

• Cockpit: Also known as the control room. It is the heart of the spaceship, so keep it safe!

• Research labs: Those little guns you start with aren'tgoing to cut it for long. Come here to upgrade and research new weapons.

• Docking ports: Allow you to dock and board the enemies’ ships.





Spaceship vs. Spaceship

The combat phases will take two forms: spaceship versus spaceship and crew versus crew, but keep in mind that whatever happens to your ship will affect your crew inside.

• Define your strategy according your enemy’sstrength and weakness points.

• Use your weapons to destroy the enemy’s vital functions and open a breach.

• Destroy their weapons or blur their sensor.

• Destroy their engines to incapacitate their moves.

• Maneuver to avoid taking damages, or to choose the impact area.

• Create hull breach to lower their oxygen level.

• Dock the enemy and launch your boarding operation. It’s time to scavenge them.



Biodiversity

The galaxy is wide and surprisingly full of life!

During your journey you will encounter many species...

Will they become trusted allies to trade with?
Will they be deadly rivals to battle or enslave?
Will they join your crew as friends, or as slaves?








Main Story

Galactic Princess is a combination between retro-futurism and pop culture. The game plays with common clichés and well-known references, twisting them in an unexpected way.
Using satire, and parody, Galactic Princess toys with Humor and Drama throughout it.



A new government saw the light: the very controversial Unified Galaxy.
This illegitimate organization is ruled by an alliance of the most corrupted survivors, who took and keep the power by force, establishing legions of Spacecops to maintain the control of the resources.
Those who didn’t submitted to their tyranny are rebel factions, or simply independent crews, led by their trustworthy captain.

This is where you come into play. As a renowned pirate, proud smuggler and captain of your own vessel, your main desire is to remain free from the government abuses. To make your wish come true, you will have to build the strongest ship, and recruit the best crew you possibly can, composed of brighttravelers from all races of the galaxy.

But fate has reserved a much greater plan for you…
In your search for glory and power, a myth caught your ear; according to which somewhere in the galaxy laid a power that would bring the planets back to life. It is your destiny to travel through space looking for information that will lead you to this Power. The Myth has a name, and is known as “The legend of the Galactic Princess”.

Hello TheNuttyGamer,

I'm writing about this, I'll explain in detail what happened. Precision: there is not really a team. There is a developer, the creator of the game, and I volunteered to help him. Without him, there is no game. And he is not incompetent. It is simpler: he has not managed to overcome a nightmarish situation. Until now. But to plunge back into the development of the game will help him turn the page, I hope. In short, I am not here to talk about privacy. Galactic Princess returns from the dead, and it's already amazing for me. I will therefore remain on this positive dynamic.

i've been sitting here for the past few months looking at all the posts come and go and trying to piece something together, all I'm getting out of this is that whoever is your team leader is seriously incompetent, now I have absolutely no idea. You tried to get in touch but he wouldn't respond? He had the code for the game? But now he came back and now you can get to work again. Also some sort of an indicator of how far you are would be nice as well since it's been a good few years now. People age.

Hi everyone,

I have good news: I now have new keys for those who have not yet received their key for the alpha! Just ask us on the form of the website, specifying your name / nickname and the email used to back the game.

Second good news: the project is back on track !

RayWolf7: sorry, I could not give any news sooner. Just because it's not my game, and also because I needed to be sure that the project was back on track. I wanted to avoid false hopes. Now I can resume my job!

Glassmanta: You're lucky: it was almost "never". ^^

Triplzer0: Yes, the game was dead, but I had to keep hope and insist. Now the game is resurrected.

In short, I am writing my first news for almost a year. I am almost moved.
Triplzer0 Apr 13 @ 10:20pm 
This game's dead, right? There has been any updates on the site in over a year. No news. No nothing. I doubt I'll get a chance to play anything other than that very early alpha
glassmanta Apr 13 @ 12:01am 
You are friggin' killing me. NOW! Want it now. not a big fan of delayed gratification. soon if possible PLEASSSSSSSSSSSE!!!!
RayWolf7 Mar 29 @ 3:29pm 
Captain Pierre, you are playing Fallout Shelter right now. I´m glad of that but............. Don´t have time for give some news of the game? Some new, some word? Nothing? Really?
bergersbester Feb 20 @ 10:03pm 
Is there any way to get your money back???
Zothen Feb 18 @ 11:51am 
Dead game! Vaporware! And a Kickstarter scam!
NemesisZidar Feb 18 @ 5:44am 
@Damage: you should probably go to the forums of their website. Because apparently all the people over there are playing the game already.
