Fan-made UQM Android game
« on: October 17, 2014, 01:19:18 pm »

Hello fellow enthusiasts

Just letting you know that there's a very simple, casual UQM-themed game on the Google Play Store called "Urquan Parking" where you play the part of disgraced Ur-quan Lord whose punishment for failure is a new job pushing various SC ships into parking spaces back at the starbase. You can bump or shoot 'em, but try not to blow them up!

It's dumb, child-friendly and harmless, written for fun and self-education, please feel free to check it out  if that sounds like your kinda thing:
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.nostromoapps.urquanparking

No cost, no in-app purchases, no nonsense. Kids seem to like it, if you want to introduce them to SC/UQM (as good parents should!).
See if you can get a perfect score in less than 60 seconds...  Cool

Thanks Krulle!
I'd love if there was a whole mini-ecosystem of spin-off casual games. E.g.:
- Fwiffo in a grid-based roguelike or dungeon crawl game
- A Shofixti scout in some kind of simple scrolling race game
- A strategy game based around the Yehat civil war
etc.
All the best

I'd like to say thank you, nostromo, for putting effort into making a UQM-themed game, AND actually finishing it.

I think with all sincerity that getting out the fruits of wisely aimed ambitions can achieve more than hyping a huge project that never gets done. If you ever have another UQM themed game (or any other interesting project) and need assistance on the graphical art front, I'd be glad helping out if my time premits.

Aren't there copyright issues here? Do you have the license to do this?

Cheers Kwayne!
You're too kind, this is a very small project and modest in scope... really appreciate the offer of graphics help, I may take you up on it someday...
