Soldak Blog: Dynamic Space Environments
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story
Another new Soldak Entertainment blog post offers a discussion of the dynamic environments players will encounter in the company's upcoming sci-fi action game. A variety of events ranging from solar flares to nuclear war will have an impact on the galaxy in which players will struggle for victory.
Soldak's as yet untitled game is described as "Master of Orion from a mercenary captain's point of view." It will place players in a dynamic galaxy and give them to the chance to build their fortune and influence the balance of power between opposing races.
In space there are a lot of things that make up the environment: stars, planets, asteroids/comets, and people on the planets. All of these things kind of have a life of their own. They don't just statically sit there. Things happen, sometimes good and sometimes bad. I think instead of explaining too much about the environment I'm just going to give a bunch of examples of how the environment in our space game will make things interesting.Head over to the page below to read more.
Some examples of environment related events/quests:
Stars: solar flares, super novas, and gamma ray bursts.
Planets: mega drought, super volcano, earthquakes, super swarms, and killer plants.
Asteroids: usually not a problem until they head towards a populated planet.
People: riots, civil war, plagues, power grid failure, nuclear war, and mutants.
