Unending Galaxy 1.3.1 Released!

We just updated Unending Galaxy to version 1.3.1.2.

This version features a brand new map, Unruly Galaxy where factions can only control solar systems and strategic crossroads. I also reduced the diplomatic modifier for being at peace and added a diplomatic incident random event to shake things a bit between the various major factions. Performance have been slightly improved thanks to a much faster path-finding algorithm, while civilian miners will regulate their population based on the amount of available asteroids. As usual, Unending Galaxy is available on Steam and itch.io.

Full changelog is below. Read More …

Unending Galaxy: Post Mortem

Here is Unending Galaxy‘s post-mortem! The game still sells relatively well given the niche market I was targeting in the first place, but I think this can be an interesting read to any solo developer tempted to make and publish a game. Also, I haven’t posted something interesting here in a while.

I’ll also publish posts about future projects, and what’s in store for Unending Galaxy in the following days.

Enjoy 🙂

Unending Galaxy : Content Update 1.2.6

Unending Galaxy 1.2.6 has just been released on all platforms!

This is a major content update with tons of new features, like the ability to directly play any faction, the new dreadnought, corvette and drone ship classes. It also includes dozens of gameplay and user interface improvements like the revamped shipyard menu, the ability to double click any of your ships or stations to open the relevant menu. It also got a graphical update with better sprites and fluid ship rotations. It’s also way more stable even in large, long games, and loading times (initial and save-games) are much shorter.

You can buy Unending Galaxy from the download page. For those who already own the game, your favorite store should get the new version shortly depending on how long it takes to upload everything. The full changelog is available in this article.

A quick post to tell you that Unending Galaxy is on sale (-35%) on itch.io right now with the beta 1.2.5 included (a steam key come with any purchase). Barring any last minute problem, the official release is planned for next week-end.

Unending Galaxy 1.2.5 Beta 20160602

Hi there !

Apologies for the delay, I have been moving to a new flat, and well, it took some time to move all my things from a place to another, get a working internet connection and so on. But, hey, it’s a much nicer place and I am more or less ready to resume work full-time.

Speaking of work, due to the major stability and quality of life improvements I made to Unending Galaxy recently, I think it should be better to release a 1.2.5 version before the official 1.3 release. Changes between 1.2 and 1.2.5 are massive enough to justify a full release anyway, and to avoid another problematic launch, I am publishing a beta version on itch.io and Steam today.

Let’s see what you can expect in this beta version.
