'BlackSpace' Announced - Screens

BlackSpace is a unique form of real-time strategy, combining elements of action with an emphasis on economic and defensive efficiency.

BlackSpace will feature AAA quality 3D graphics and techniques, an engaging storyline, competitive multiplayer capabilities, all packaged up and tagged at a compelling price point.

"We are early in development on BlackSpace," explains Jerry. "In line with some of the forward thinking independent developers out there, we really want to get the community involved with the game, incrementally releasing features and enhancements, while getting reactions and suggestions."

Players will find themselves on the outskirts of explored space, harvesting minerals, and supplying markets, while using the resources around them to sustain their operations as well as the lives of the colonist workers.

The game takes place on X class asteroids, players will control both surface and orbital operations with the use of a specialized low gravity operation support vehicle. The vehicle controls take skill to maneuver safely, but once mastered, it becomes an extension of the players hand, commanding base operations, pilot drilling dig sites, prospecting large and unusual mineral deposits, and if need be, supporting the bases defense.

The play space encircles the celestial body and extends into orbit. This gives the player a layered and expansive strategic platform. The unique layout serves to broaden the players ability to develop varied and personalized solutions to the environmental and defensive challenges that await them.
