The game has you playing a hero exploring the galaxy one mission at a time. You can choose a class and a race, equip some weapons and get out there, make some money and maybe find a new planet or two.

A couple of screenshots:






And an early test video:

There's a very early playable demo here in LibGDX GWT Backend version - that means you'll need a decent browser to try it:

Try the Early Demo


There's loads more to do as you can imagine include:

- Loads of new missions, items, locations, monsters, etc etc
- Online save/load
- Player ship buying and travelling
- Hiring mercs to help on the mission
- Implants
- Weapons Mods
- Psi powers


I'm hoping to release for Desktop, iOS and Android - with maybe Web too if I can think that out straight.

...Also started working on the game's star map to allow us to explore the galaxy. Nav bot is here to serve.

Should work. Run it with:

java -jar launch.jar

It'll keep itself updated with the latest version of Legends of Fore too.

WOAH! I love Legends of Yore! A sci fi spinoff is a lot better in my taste!

Looks great.

Would it be possible to include at virtual D-pad and a button. That's basically what keeps me from playing most rogue likes, I hate having to place my iPad in an akward position to be able to touch all over the screen. :-)

This looks great. Reminds me of the old rebelstar/laser squad games 'slightly'

Another vote for an optional d-pad

Will there be a story? You could log into computer terminals to find
personal logs and files that explain what is going on. You might even be able
to play a mini game that unlocks a door or awards the player with something.

Thanks

Pretty excited too! Wasn't sure if I'd be the first to release a new game with oryx new pack or not. Looks like you beat me to it but it will be fun!
