Codename: Rogue Fleet Release!
Kickstarter Campaign
Description
Release date: July 2016
The Idea

Rogue Fleet is a multiplayer team-based game about spaceships combat. Imagine World of Warships mixed with Dreadnought than add an Homeworld feel to it.

Each ships in the game have different gameplay. The smaller ships rely on fast decision making from the player, than as you choose bigger and bigger ship, the focus will shift toward long term strategic planning.

Small ships are fast, numerous and easy to play, which is ideal for players who like action. The biggest ships are slow, powerful and unique to your team. Tactical players who carefully plan their next move will love these.

I firmly believe that gameplay is what make long lived games, and not graphic, story or diversity. It is with those core ideas and philosophies that i started this project on the 20th of April 2015.

The Gameplay

A match of Rogue Fleet will pit two team of 12 players against each other. At the start of a match, players will choose their ship. With the help of their team and by managing the strengths and weaknesses of their respective ship, players will achieve victory by destroying all enemy ships.

The key of success here is team-work and strategy. Will you destroy the enemy capital ship's engine so that your torpedo destroyer can take him out easily? Should you attack the flak frigate, so that your team's corvettes can survive longer, or the ion frigate, before it destroy you?

The Ships

Rogue fleet features 10 different ships equally distributed in 5 classes.

Capital Ships (one per team) : High hull integrity, strong shield.

Battleship : Armed with 2 ion cannons, 10 heavy missile launchers, 5 torpedo tubes and a drone bay, the Battleship is the most powerful ship in the fleet.

Carrier : Having one of these overseeing the battlefield is an advantage that your opponent cannot deny. With an extra large drone bay and flak cannons the Carrier can provide extra protection against smaller ships.

Destroyers (one per team) : High hull integrity, heavily armored.

Torpedo Destroyer : With 10 torpedo tubes, the Torpedo Destroyer is a real threat to any ship. Add 5 heavy missile launchers, 2 ion turrets, and you got the biggest explosive potential in the fleet.

Missile Destroyer : To effectively hunt smaller ship, this destroyer is equipped with 10 high reload speed heavy missile launchers. This one can literally fill space with explosions.

Frigates (two per team) : Strong shield, heavily armored.

Ion Frigate : 1 ion turret, 5 torpedo tubes and 5 small missile batteries, is all you need to strike fear into Goliath's heart.

Flak Frigate : A fast flak turret is the ideal weapon to hunt corvette, and this frigate has 3 of them.

Corvettes (three per team) : Fast, heavily armored crafts lacking shields.

Laser Corvette : You can strike bigger ship where it hurts with this corvette, thanks to it's lack of shield. On the down side, well you don't have a shield...

MultiGun Corvette : Going in and out of shield bubbles has never been this easy, you can now destroy those pesky fighters with ease.

Fighters (five per team) : Fast crafts with special shield, but no armor.

Bomber : Bomber can destroy sub-systems and excel at crippling bigger ship.

Interceptor : Corvette killers, that's what they are.

The Weapons

Each weapon is especially designed for maximum effectiveness against one ship class.

Ion weapons : Powerful beam that bypass armor. Best used against Destroyers.
Torpedoes : Self propelled high explosive payload, bypass shield. Best used against Capital Ships.
Missiles : Self propelled smart explosive payload, bypass armor and shield. Best used against Frigates.
Flak : Smart energy projectile with proximity detection, bypass armor. Best used against Corvettes.
Drones : Damaging area of effect, Best used against Fighters.
Bomb : Slow, high damage projectile. Best used against Sub-systems.
Laser : Beam that bypass armor. Best used against Frigate.
Multigun : High rate of fire weapon. Best used against Fighters.
Plasma : Polyvalent weapon that bypass armor. Best used against Corvettes.

A campaign with a story is something i wish, i will be able do in the future, but even just MP bots will lengthen the development time, and with my current resources as an indie dev, i need to keep the scope of the game small if i want to release a finish product in a reasonable time frame.

As many others have pointed out, I think its crucial to provide single player and multiplayer.
That being said it looks great so far! Voted, good luck!
