-------------------------------------------
Hello all!
I'm not sure where should I post this, since we plan to release our game on iPads/Android pads, then PC/Mac and hopefully linux.

Currently we are making a space game (not a traditional simulator, though - don't bite me for that!). It will be something between Star Control (best space game I ever played), Dark Orbit and (hopefully) Eve. Our main goal is to make a great world, scenario and gameplay. We won't hide absence of the meaning behind amazing special effects, like in modern games (though indeed we will do everything to make our game beautiful and attractive).



To success, we will need support of game fans. Soon will go for Kickstarter, and this is why I'm gathering community now - without your help, without spreading the word, we will not success there.

In a week or two we will open our site with materials; for now, I've opened group with few ingame screenshots and concept-arts on facebook. I'll be glad to see you all on the page and hope that you will support us - and, together, we will make a great game. Smart game, full of oldschool spirit and soul!

UPDATE: Campain is going on, $12k gathered.

What type of game is it?

Very much Star Control, this is space quest + ARPG (not a sim). You control only one ship and your character within, but NPC's will be able to join your small fleet in some situations. So, combat can be just one on one, or sometimes - almost tactical fight, group vs group.

Alas, no, it's still in development. This is why I'm here - we need your help, to spread the word and build community before we proceed to kickstarter. We are a small indie team and to make our game better, we need more a bit time (3-4 months for first release).

If you like space games, you can aid us by liking our page - and you will receive updates about our development. We would be happy to answer on the questions and discussions there, too!

Official page that needs your love is here: https://www.facebook.com/divinespacegame

Also, we added some art and concepts to gallery there. More to come soon!

Subject:   UPDATE: Insight into our Universe Map
-------------------------------------------


Universe map. This map is built on a *real* astronomical data. Every star in it's real position and have it's real color (spectral class).

Lines are routes between stars, known/available to a player.

Each star contains a number of planets, if you zoom in. This is still in progress - with time, we will make it looking a bit better and will add some effects.

danilevski noticed a couple errors on the first page, I'll put an "!" next to errors I noticed.
quote
Divine Space – it’s a resurrection of the spirit of old sci-fi space games on a "!" newest technologies. It’s an epic adventure with "!" headspinning storyline that will leave an indelible mark in your soul and mind. Divine Space is a hard sci-fi "!" with elements of action-RPG "!" and powerful quest system.
Without errors probably would look something like;

Changing what was probably not actual grammatical errors, but didn't sound quite right;

Mostly just shuffled things around a bit and removed words that got repeated too often. Stuff like "of the spirit of" broke the flow when I was reading.

Lorx, thank you very much!

Fixed and replaced. Got some serious bashing from Reddit guys concerning that phrase, so likely we will completely change it asap (removing 'epic' and other advert things to let readers decide themselve - if it's epic or not).

Best of luck to you with the Kickstarter danilevski. Maybe RabidChinaGirl or chautemoc will put up an article on Neo mentioning your Kickstarter. I hope it ends up well given the clear amount of error you've been putting in.
