Official Release! Space Station Alpha goes GOLD!
Version 1.0 is now live!

Space Station Alpha is now officially released, the bugs have been squashed, the feature cabinet is full and it's ready to play. Buy it now[www.nuclearfirecracker.com] for $8 or an equivalent amount of your favourite currency.

Build and manage your own space station in an undiscovered stretch of space. Make friends with terrifying alien species and bring the galaxy together with the awesome power of capitalism. Do your best to avoid losing your new friends when the high oxygen environment in your station inevitably leads to searing fires and death. Try and keep your precious supply of oxygen within your thin bulkheads and prevent the horrific death the suffocation brings.

  • Build a space station.
  • Build left-right, forward-backward AND up-down. Thats all 3 dimensions!
  • Oxygen flows freely through open doors and stops at closed ones, get creative to bleed oxygen from rooms to fight fires and unwanted guests.
  • Encounter strange sci-fi phenomena such as giant energy aliens, warps in space-time and heaps more.
  • Manage the fickle needs of various slimy aliens and slimer humans.
  • Unhappy aliens go rogue, sometimes happy aliens go rogue. Some passenger will cheat and murder and that's not good for business.
  • Set aside areas for your passengers to set up shop, a free market is good for the economy.
  • A high oxygen environment can lead to fires, fires which will propogate if left uncontrolled.
  • Keep that hull intact! Lack of oxygen kills customers as well and that can lead to a reduction in repeat business.
  • Fully 3D environment, view from a distance or fly in and try an eavesdrop on your customers conversations.
  • Protect or simply rebuild after asteroid showers, pirate attacks and various other spacey horrors.
  • Develop shiny new technologies!

Alpha 9
04/03/2014

Major Changes
- A Third Dimension! At no extra cost you can now build stairs, spreading your space station over not just the boring x and y axis, but the mythical z axis as well!

Minor Changes
- Pathfinding drastically altered to allow up z-plane travel. As a bonus, all the pathfinding is more efficient now and the game is slightly smoother now.

Bug Fixes
- Just a few bits and pieces

Description
Release date: Early 2014
Build a high tech space station. Manage the needs of various alien guests. Fight and survive natural and unnatural space disasters. Take to the stars and build a complex and fully operational space station!

PLAY NOW![www.nuclearfirecracker.com] Alpha version available now on Windows and Linux.

You have been given a small bit of space of your own, a handful of credits and a beat up old WorkerBot(tm). Your task is to take this undeveloped piece of vacuum and turn it into a tourist center/economic hub/military base/diplomatic epicenter or any combination you can manage.

The challenges will be many, the main resource required to keep your cash filled customers alive is oxygen, which can only be pumped out by energy hungry machines. A realistic airflow system sees oxygen rushing from room to room through open doors or quickly escaping into space through the
merest hull breach.

If you can manage to keep your customers alive long enough then you'll have to deal with their various needs, initially you'll deal mostly with human pioneers exploring the outer regions of space, thankfully they'll be happy with little more than a solid meal and some fresh oxygen. As your station
becomes more popular though you'll be dealing with wealthy alien merchants bribing your workers, diplomats expecting special treatment and acid excreting monsters who (accidentally) leave destruction in their wake. You'll become a ripe target for pirates and mercenaries, as your station grows it also becomes bigger target for the periodic meteor showers that are all too common this time of year.

  • Build a space station
  • Manage the fickle needs of various slimy aliens and slimier humans
  • Unhappy aliens go rogue, sometimes happy aliens go rogue. Some passenger will cheat, steal and murder and that's not good for business
  • Set aside areas for your passengers to set up shop, a free market is good for the economy
  • Encounter strange sci-fi phenomena such as giant energy aliens, warps in space-time and heaps more
  • Oxygen flows freely through open doors and stops at closed ones, get creative to bleed oxygen from rooms to fight fires and unwanted guests.

  • Fully 3D environment, view from a distance or fly in and try an eavesdrop on your customers conversations
  • Protect or simply rebuild after asteroid showers, pirate attacks and various other spacey horrors.

Space Station Alpha is in playable alpha now and new features are being added regularly. One purchase will get you the game on all platforms which right now includes Windows and Linux. Get it now on the official website http://www.nuclearfirecracker.com.

Reminds me of Spacebase DF-9, this looks great!
On the other hand, Spacebase DF-9 had better looking environments..

I'm now using the Firefox browser and it's working.

Payed for it, but after having downloaded it Win 8.1 Chrome (on my desktop pc) says it's blocked the file because it regards it as malicious.

I personally don't request much from games in their Alpha stage. If the games intresting and looks like i would spend time on it. Its good for me, keep up the good work, the more things you can add to your space ship the more varitey, which intrest me alot.

Интересно...
Надеюсь разработчики сделают упор на строительстве и дадут простор игракам
Желаю дальнейшего развития

Tried the Demo, got “pretty” far, living room with 3 private rooms, 2 people stayed permanently, built command center with science station, survived asteroids and radiation, only killed 6 people out of 18 passengers
VERDICT
Would I buy it? No

Would other people buy it? Yes, it's a game with occasional spikes of "what's happening" but mostly it is "what is the best way to make everyone happy” a casual game

My Suggestions:
Allow a smaller version of the oxygen generator to be placed in private quarters... A guy is sleeping and unless I lock the door open, it keeps going into the red. Since I only had 1 person at a time, it wasn't really a problem, but if I had 3 or more, it would be painful to keep toggling the door just to let some oxygen in.

Alternate solution would be have a vented door, air passes freely through it, but the door can be locked shut, allowing a kind of ventilation system to be placed throughout the ship
