Hello all!
My name is Anti A. Danilevski and I'm making video games. Glad to meet you all!

We're making a 3D space adventure/ARPG in hard sci-fi genre, with real-time combat. It's a mix of the spirits of such games as Star Control, Elite, and Space Rangers. It has a simple click-n-go controls, comparable to Dark Orbit and excellent, up-to-date three-dimensional graphics somehow comparable to Eve Online.

When I'm saying 'good graphics', I actually means this:

The action of the game takes place in a universe resembling our real world as much as possible: stars are located just where they actually are. We had to spend several months developing actual astronomical data and building a universe based on them. After playing it, you will know once and for all where the sun is located in our corner of the universe, which stars are closest to us, what their spectral classes are, planets... and much more.

Our full 3D starmap:

Beside that, we have a deep scenario and world design (it's almost USP nowadays). We built our scenario based on current research. It's somewhat a prediction of the possible future - we are developing an educative game.

And there is a screenshot from the game:

Why I'm here, just registered and already posting this? There are two reasons:

First, I'm gathering feedback and opinions. This really helps me to make a better game and realize if something is wrong. Thanks to some people I've already made few corrections. I've just joined, but that doesn't mean I'll throw my post and disappear.

Second, we are now on Kickstarter, and this is where I need your backing, if you want to play a game like this. We need support of a strong community to make this game, otherwise it won't see the light.

I'm not going to give you any links because I, myself, hate spam. Besides, I and have a really bad experience with it - at the beginning I was naive enough to create big beautiful threads with many pictures and videos, information... good read, quick bans.

So, I ask permission to share link to our campaign.
If not allowed, well - we can simply discuss our game and development!

Best wishes,
- Anti

This seems like a cool and ambitious idea. Do you foresee potentially competing with Star Citizen in this marketspace as endangering your project or bolstering the genre as a whole?

I'd be interested to see more of your game's assets which I assume will come with a potential link if allowed.

Thank you.

Star Citizen would eat us without even noticing it. But thankfully, we are not concurents: Star Citizen is a sim in soft sci-fi genre, it's a great fable if I understand it right. We are space action-RPG in hard sci-fi genre, in a 'serious' world based on real research.

Funny thing is that Star Citizen is for hardcore players (fans of simulators), and we - for wide auditory because of 3rd person view and click-n-go controls. We are aiming not only on gamers, but also on regular people who don't have special skills, but enjoy playing and good stories.

If allowed, I'll post early gameplay video here (or give a link).
