We started making the research bit of the game last night, and came quite far. At first, we thought about making a classic research tree, but came up with an even better idea. So far we don’t really have anything graphical to show, because most of it was mathematics the level of Einstein. Well, at least high school trigonometry, but… I digress!
Ooniverza is meant to be a management app for space colony bosses such as yourself, and then you don’t have time for pesky micro managing, right? So, we came up with a system where you decide what type of science you want to focus on, and your brave, smart squints find the cool research for you. All while you lean back and find new planets to colonize!
Speaking of colonizing, our ship can now mount a colonization kit, which when triggered dismantles your ship into the beginning of a new colony, and deposits any cargo, mineral or human. You also have a chance of retaining some parts of the ship to use for other endeavors, depending on how well you’ve trained your engineers of course!
We’ll be off doing other work for about a week or two, working on this game in between as much as we can.
Buh bye for now!
