Space Age: Space exploration and adventure from Big Bucket

Hi guys, Matt Comi from Big Bucket here. Neven Mrgan and I are the guys responsible for The Incident. We recently announced our upcoming game: Space Age, and I figured it's about time I started a thread for it on Touch Arcade!

It's a little hard to peg down what kind of game Space Age is, but we like to think of it as a mash up between a real-time strategy, an adventure game and a stealth action game. A sort of a love letter to the kind of games we enjoyed playing growing up. It's a lot bigger and more ambitious than The Incident and we really hope you're going to like it.

We're posting updates on the Space Age Twitter account at @spaceageapp and we have a landing page where you can subscribe to be notified of big Space Age news. We won't spam you, we swear.

I've started posting dev videos up on Vimeo. Currently, there are two:

Pouring Rain: An experiment with environmental effects (darkness and rain).

MagTruck Demonstration: A demonstration of the MagTruck (metal harvester) doing what its thing.

And just in case you don't feel like clicking any links, here are a couple images that hint at what we're aiming for:





I'll be back with more updates later on. Thanks!

Looks very classic-point-and-click-adventure-game-like similar to Beneath a Steel Sky and Leisure Suite Larry

It's fine if this is a different type of gameplay, but im liking the visuals too much

Can you provide more gameplay details?
- Open world or just large levels?
- Any interiors to explore (colonies, ruins, underground structures, buildings) or only outside environments?
- Is there any combat or are you avoiding conflict (stealth)?
- Can you interact with NPCs? (Dialogue, side quests, choices)
- Any enemies or dangerous wildlife?

Graphics look great and funny.

Keeping an eye out but a tad concerned about Space Age being a RTS stealth adventure game... Last such mashup I recall was an RTS action adventure on the XBox 360 about a heavy metal guy. I think it was called Brutal Legend...

Space Age is mission based.

There are interior and exterior missions.

You generally want to avoid conflict but yeah, there is some combat.

We're still ironing those sorts of details out, but there is plenty of dialogue.

Yep
