Age of Asteroids is greenlit!
New Demo Version available!
Description
Release date: 2014
Age of Asteroids brings you to the Inner Asteroid Belt located between Jupiter and Mars. You will be responsible to gather resources, establish and defend your asteroid colonies and build up your mining empire.

In the not too distant future, humans have colonized the moon and the mars but it became increasingly expensive to gather and bring resources there. Mining Companies found the solution in mining asteroids in zero gravity conditions to efficiently bring resources where they are needed. This leds to a new gold rush resulting in greed, agression and conflicts. Far away from any jurisdication in the vastness of the Inner Asteroid Belt you are on your own.

We aimed for the stars, we settled the moon and the mars. Now we are heading for the asteroids"

This game is completely in ALPHA Stage - that means it is still in heavy development. The reason it is already here is simple: I want your feedback, your ideas as well. What would you expect from the future, what features do you want to see in the game - so feel free to just go crazy with your ideas!

Colonize Asteroids
You are a freelancer in this world. Seek out to find asteroids, colonize them, build up a mining colony, gather resources and defend them. You will be on your own and have to care for your colonies survival. Expand your Scanner Range, send out scouts to find even more asteroids in your sector. Your main goal is to mine resources and sell them to the occassionaly appearing transporters to earn your money and your reputation.

Epic Space Battles
Build up your fleet to defend and to engage. Make use of interstellar rockets of different types and satellites. Build different types of space ships and equip them with different types of weapons until you are ready for the final fight to get the whole control over your sector. Use different tactical missiles to engage enemy asteroids and try to defend yourself against enemy strikes.

Procedural Generated Content
Each asteroid is randomly generated. They rotate and they move. They are not static. They can even collide.
Your colony has to react on different environmental conditions, which differ from asteroid to asteroid. Send out a scout first to see if an asteroid is worth to get settled before you send out your colonization ships.

Fully Simulated Unit Behaviour
Every unit in this game is simulated seperatly - they hardly use any predefined animations for their tasks but instead will steer and behave on their respective tasks. Docking, Steering, Interaction are completely handled by the AI.

What you can expect

  • Micro Manage your colonies to get the best out of it
  • Initiate Trading, build up trading routes
  • Maintain your own fleet for defending your own and engaging enemy asteroids
  • Make use of tactical Asteroid/Asteroid Missiles
  • and much more - feel free to tell your wishes!

Oh, okay, cool, just make sure it's out before NASA, ESA, N Russia begin colonizin' de asteroids, Luna, and than Mars, than this game wouldn't be considered sci-fi, it would be sci-fact, and realistic, than it wouldn't be fun :3

No - just still delayed, don't worry - I just have to finish some other projects first before I can invest the needed time into working on that game - there is already unreported progress and I will start doing dev videos again, when diving into the project fulltime again :-)
