Description

We are a small family team (myself, wife, and son) and are very excited to share our progress on StarDiver with the community. I am an old-school gamer and simply can not understand why the good old epic space romps of yesteryear are not made anymore. I'm talking about games like Omnitrend's Universe, Star Flight, Sun Dog, Star Control and more -- the epic space operas with tons of aliens to converse with, planets to mine, and galaxies to save.

StarDiver is a project of love from an old gamer that has been waiting for over two decades for a good new space romp and I can't wait any longer. So here we go, it is time to make a new one! I hope the community will join me on our intergalactic quest to make a new space epic worthy to even be mentioned along with the great games of the past.

Early Dev -- maybe 20% of unknown space is now known.

The artwork does look fantastic though, I should have mentioned that.

Looks great, pretty much already sold for me.

One weird comment/nitpick is that the aliens in what I assume are dialog screens all have roughly the same size and positioning on the screen. There's not a lot variation in their .. presence. Consider in contrast how the Orz were backed off and operating their ship, the Spathi was in your face funny, the Ur-Quan filled most of the screen. The Utwig were solemn and solitary, while the Thraddash positioning gave a cramped, sweaty feel.
Many of the dialog screens for Star Diver seem to miss that element of the alien's character, simply displaying the alien rather than building their character further with how they're positioned. And just the low amount of variation in this respect jumped out at me.

Having said that, they're great as they are also. Not a deal breaker by any stretch of the imagination.
