Infinite Space 3: Sea Of Stars Status Update
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Digital Eel has released a new status update for Infinite Space 3: Sea of Stars, a sequel to Strange Adventures in Infinite Space and Weird Worlds: Return To Infinite Space. In addition to details the game's progress, the update includes a new video. The game will continue the unique sci-fi roguelike style of the originals with the addition of a 3D universe and a variety of new material and gameplay options.

While we have been creating more art and content, Iíve been busy getting actual game systems running under the hood. The universe you explore on the star map is now actually populated with alien empires you can run into and get in fights with. Transitioning between the star map and combat modes now works, although the presentation is still in a rough state. There are some cool systems already operating that will allow the aliens (as well as Terrans) to develop new technologies over time, and upgrade their ships.

The mod editor now includes an editor for the procedural materials that we previously had to edit in script files. This will make it easier to create materials for planets as well as the alien races whose fleets arenít done yet. Being able to edit the material definitions on the fly allows faster iteration and encourages experimentation.

Our immediate goal is to now produce a playable beta version with reduced content, but all the core gameplay features. Basically, get the game running with the assets we have so we can start collecting feedback from testers including Kickstarter backers in the $25+ tiers. More details to come in the next update!
