New website, new update, new FAQ and our forum !
Dear future Space Captains,

Since our game successfully completed its crowdfunding campaign in the winter of 2014, we’ve been concentrating on its development. We have focused on creating a good game (and finishing it before the deadline). But this time has finished. Now, nine months from the release of Galactic Princess, we launched a new website[galactic-princess.com], where you can now discover the answers to all your questions in our FAQ section. We’ll be regularly updating this site to give you the latest news from the Unified Galaxy.

In addition to the large FAQ, we released the latest update about the development of Galactic Princess.

Besides, feel free to ask new questions or to speak about your ideas on our new forum! You can register by creating an account or using your Steam, Google or Facebook accounts.

We hope to have the opportunity to discuss there with you and share the latest progress of the game.

Until next time,
The Galactic Princess Team

December update
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”.

Captains, welcome on our new website, with updates & a big FAQ ! Feel free to speak about your ideas on our forum: https://galactic-princess.com

Coming soon : Our new headquarters :)

Hi Gramp'a Soldier !

Thank you ! We think that GP is promising and fun, too :)
And there is more than one dimension : two, in fact ! (yeah, I know what you mean)

Our new site (online in a week or two) will have a big FAQ that answer dozens of questions.
But I can tell you (shhh, it's a secret) that the vessels may be wide enough (provided you pay the price, and potentially sacrificing maneuverability).
I don't know what you mean by giant turrets, but there are already powerful offensive weapons.
We will not impose a particular captain (but we have not worked on this feature, yet, so ... wait & see).
Finally, the galaxy will (inevitably) be big. With many areas to explore, but not necessarily accessible with a basic ship...

The game is scheduled for December.
Stay tuned, Captain.

This game looks VERY promissing and fun! Thogh I wish it had more than one dimention when it comes to ship building, but the RTS style for crew management seems fantastic! And the overall concept behind it is very interesting as well!

A few questions:

Q: How large can a ship get?
Q: If there is a chance for large battle ships, will there be giant guns/turrets for your ship?
Q: Will there be the oportunity to fully customise your captain?
Q: How big will the galaxy be? How will it be mapped to be explored?

Those are all I could think of for now.

Hope to see this game released soon!

Thank you !
This week, we are working on the doors. And what would Star Wars be without its characteristic doors?
Good news: the new site will be completed soon. With answers and updates :)

@Wohlever
Don't worry: Galactic Princess is more alive than ever :)

We are in the process of transferring a new site, so it's normal that you have an error message.

As mentioned below, the game is still scheduled for December. We have no plans for Early Access, but backers will have access to the beta in two or three months.

More information as soon as we can launch the site. You will know it here, or Kickstarter, or our Facebook page!

Is this game dead?

I went to the website galactic-princess dot com and got a 500 Internal Server Error.

I went to Kickstarter and last post was in Jan.

Any idea when this will be available either through Early Access here via Steam or elsewhere?

Yes, I did try to find the answer before posting this question.

Been watching this for some time now.
