Description
Survive in the shifting sprawls of A.I. controlled interstellar space where chaos and adventure run rampant. It's here you'll chart the depths of unknown quadrants, discover lost secrets, and forge the ever-searching platform of humanity's last hope.

Sol-Ark is a 2D Space RTS with sandbox and rougue-like components. Expect gameplay mechanics designed with player choice in mind and an immense universe to make those decisions in. Missions and storylines drift from seriously somber to hilariously violent with every new area explored, and random events punctuate these encounters to make a dynamic experience that's part procedural, part handcrafted indie space.

A Few Of Sol-Ark's Features:
  • Crew Morale System:
    One of the most interesting mechanics we've introduced is a morale system for NPCs, consisting of varying degrees of four moods. These moods affect how any given NPC will perform a task. Ask a happy NPC to switch out a reactor core and they might do it in half the time, whistling all the while. Ask a depressed NPC to do the same task and they may open the airlock and jettison themselves, and other crew members into the unforgiving void of space.

  • Random Events:
    The game will feature dozens of events ranging in class and severity. You'll encounter pirates, miners, derelict stations and celestial phenomenon that will alter your crew's mood, send you on quests, and engage you with ambushes, full frontal assaults and other intergalactic shenanigans. Expect naturally occurring lasers to sever your ship, and be wary of the allure and intrigue of alien-infested cargo adrift in space.

  • Sandbox Style Construction:
    You'll be building your ship from frame, to floor, to wall and ceiling. You can shape and build the ship to your own liking and compartmentalize its systems however you see fit. Do you want your ship to look like a massive triangle of death, surrounded by torpedo turrets, lasers and cannons? Go for it. Want your ship to be shaped like a massive cat head? Please give it a shot, and send us some screenshots.

Space Station 13 более комедична и иронична чем Sol-Ark
Но в свою очередь Sol-Ark более реалестичен и серьёзен на первый взгляд.Ребяты молодцы, когда увидел как станция разлетелась об астеройд частично ощутил весь этот геморой. Они сделали нечто. Такой крутизны я не видел со времён Cortex Comand. Боже храни этих ребят. Удачи.

Проект действительно выглядит весьма интересным. Навевает воспоминания о спейс стейшен 13. Где все начинается мирно и спокойно, но обязательно идет обязательно кувырком и заканчивается взрывом всей нафиг станции Лишь бы логистика роботов не подкачала... Было несколько игрушек которые по сути были очень хороши, но из-за плохого поиска пути действующих "лиц" в итоге умерли. Ну или им таки поправили этот поиск пути в одном из патчей после выхода и все становилось нормально. Так что удачи. Ждем с нетерпением.

Спасибо огромное за такие теплые слова и поддержку. Они - бальзам на душу для любого разработчика. Особенно, когда мы в лучших традициях инди-игр делаем проект с нулевым бюджетом, в гараже и на коленке) Спасибо, передам Ваши слова всей команде.

Очень жду игру с нетерпением, видео и скриншоты очень радуют, не пожалел бы ради нее даже 600 рублей. Игры такого жанра мне очень нравятся, и думаю, понравятся и другим, ведь я заядлый игрок в Space Station 13
