Solstrike was originally created as a test and demo of our Fenforge game engine. However it has turned out to be be extremely fun to play, and we have lots of ideas to improve it. Therefore we are now considering making it larger.
We have decided to share what we have created so far, as an 'Early Access' version so you can try it yourself. If you like what you see, please vote for Solstrike on Steam Greenlight
, and if there is sufficient interest then we will develop Solstrike further.
Some of the improvements we plan to implement if we get enough votes are described below:
Solstrike currently has two complete planets, each with 15 unique units, buildings and commander buffs to choose from. We have already designed many more planets which we would like to add, each with their own unique theme. There are also more types of action, ranging from direct attacks to area effects. Imagine all the different strategies you could employ with the addition of more planets.
With the addition of new planets, there will be many more actions available than you can use in a single game. The Barracks will allow you to fine tune which actions you load onto your spaceship and take into battle. Which actions will you place at your disposal? Try to come up with the best combination!
Complete missions/challenges with varying degrees of difficulty to gain research points. These can then be used to unlock new planets and new actions. This makes the game more rewarding to play, and gives an incentive to try different strategies.
