Star Control Origins "Tiny Dino" Update [2nd June]
« on: June 03, 2018, 01:04:48 am »

Salutations sun-baked carbon-based lifeforms of decreasing H2O content. It has been another busy week here over here at Stardock as we come hot off of Memorial Day. There has been a large focus on visual polish and fine-tuning gameplay elements of the Adventure as the first beta as rolled out to founders of Star Control: Origins. We are not showing off this work to the public yet but I hope to have some sneak peeks for you guys very soon.

Before we get to some of the new public screenshots I'd like to give a shoutout to our producer Patrick Shaw! He had an interview with GamerHubTV earlier last month you can check it out here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2J21ltBt2uA



Something we have added in with Origins is the ability to have distinct crew members! You might notice a human in this screenshot. But, we all know it's the upgrades that make the galaxy spin!



Work on planetary gameplay continues. It's a balance to keep each encounter interesting and worth exploring whilst not just giving the player a bunch of easy targets on a map to zoom in on. Here we have a pretty sweet view of the alien gas giant this moon orbits.



Orion's Spur is alive, very much so. With Scryve cruiser hanging around Sirius A it might be wise not to hang around for long here.



The last screenshot today is one of a pretty ordinary terrestrial planet, but take a closer look and you might spy something just on the horizon. (Psst, it's at the top)

Until next time sweaty lifeforms o/

Distinct crew members? What do you mean by that? Do they have stats and skills, like in Starflight?

Or Missions of the Reliant. That was one thing I always wanted done well. MotR had a crazy difficulty curve, though. Easy, easy, suddenly insanely killer… maybe I needed to train my sensor guy a lot earlier on, somehow?

I'm kinda curious, will the available resources include all the various exotics from SC2? It wouldn't be a Star Control game without the ability to gather Neutronium, Tzo Crystals, and Magnetic Monopoles, right? (To name just a few.)

I can't, and don't, want to reveal too much but basically, you will be able to pick up unique characters who will travel with and talk to you about things. Your first officer is one of them.

You might see some familiar stuff to strip mine from planets Roll Eyes
