So, now that VoidExpanse has finally being greenlit (yay!) we can now work on the game with even more confidence! And we are already half way with the next update.

The new update won't be as big as some previous ones, but it isn't meant to be. The thing is - our programmer, Vladimir is working on serious engine extension to allow for localization, autopilot and many other features that will come later, for Steam launch.

So, while he is at that, me and Andrei decided to make a smaller, but still very cool content update.

So, what can you expect in it? That post is one of several previws for that update and you can expect...



Yes! Female characters are finally being added into the game. The examples above are still work in progress, of course, but I think you will definitely like what you will see in the game. At least I do for sure :)

That's nice.

Are you going to push some gameplay content on that update, or mainly polishs and aesthetics ?

Definitely. This time we've fleshed out the mines and there is a new ship as well. Among other things.

Looking good!

There is a funny story behind inspirations for these pictures (not the ones above, but the system in general).
I wonder would people be able to guess who were the three actresses that inspired the current version of female characters :)

I've got to ask.. is one of them Ripley from the Alien series?

Also, I'd love to hear the story behind the inspirations. Nothing like a bit of behind the scenes :)

The answer is no.
As for telling a story - I am sure people will figure it out themselves once we release this update :)

Ah. The second image looked a bit like her.

I look forward to seeing what happens in this update :)

Love the modeling job on the new ship, too, even if that's not in the title for this thread (but still goes with the new-patch stuff coming!) ;)
