Description
Release date: November 2017
Dust Fleet is a space real time strategy game where you choose when and where to do battle. Starting with a single ship, build your Fleet, manage ship upgrades and win the trust of a sceptical population.

Without you, they don't stand a chance
One ship isn't nearly enough, but that's all they've given you start with. The Dust Zone, the name given to a network of wormholes connecting seemingly empty areas of space, is under threat. It's of no strategic importance, but a self-contained society of millions space-dwelling humans is in danger of being wiped out by an unknown hostile fleet. EarthGov, remote and uncaring, has sent you to the Dust Zone with a single ship.

Turn it around
Acquire new ships, arm them and upgrade them. As you grow your fleet, you can begin the fight back to free captured stations and make the sector safe once again.

Game features
  • Order your ships into battle in full 3d space
  • Assemble your fleet
  • Upgrade your ships with modules and turrets
  • Use the starmap to plan your campaign
  • Capture stations in a variety of game types

Hi Dadd29,

I'm thinking along those lines - I'd like to do limited ammo in some form, for a few select weapons. One of the fittable modules is for increasing a ship's store of ammo.

And there'll certainly be benefits for helping out stations (we don't really have planets, but stations fulfil the same gameplay role, along with a few extras). Better pricing will probably not be one of them, but access to ship and weapon types is.

And yes, I'm definitely thinking about rearm/repair ships. This might be a combination of a suitable ship hull, specific weapon types (like a "repair turret") and specific module types (ammo storage buff, probably) so that the player can outfit a variety of ships for this role.
