Re: Blendo Games

I've played a bit of Flotilla, and more Atom Zombie Smasher. Both fun games. My only complaint with Flotilla you guys already pointed out, it just ends. I have to assume the balance for the game just didn't work late game. I'd put Flotilla into the same genre as FTL, along with Weird Worlds. And bot...

Re: [Suggestion] Option to leave out ship systems

Oh! I'm sorry I did not understand your suggestion. You wanted the option to completely remove systems (or races) from the game. Interesting idea, but I think it's a little too ingrained *everywhere* with the enemy balance, event design, etc. that it wouldn't work very well. Something to think about...

Re: FTL Flight Paths a.k.a "Whaddaya mean I can't go that wa

I think maybe it'd be worth pointing out one small fact about the game. Technically, you're looking at a "Beacon Map" not a map of stars :). Beacons were created by the intelligent species of the galaxy and placed to aid in FTL jumps and calculations. They're haphazard in their placement, ...

Re: [Suggestion] Option to leave out ship systems

The different player ships will have different starting system configurations. For awhile we experimented with some of the more extreme options (no medbay for example), and it's just not particularly fun :(. No ship will start with every system, so the Kestrel will be very similar to the Kestrel you...

Re: [Suggestion] Multiplayer Skirmishes!

As everyone above said, it's just way too big of a system to try to implement, and the focus of the game is single player. A friend of ours suggested a Demon's Souls style multiplayer, where during the single player game you might randomly encounter another player also playing their game and have to...

Re: Suggestion: customizable colours

We do intend to have a few pre-set colour palettes for the player ships. They may be included as part of an unlock system, but that's still all up in the air.

Subset Games Logo

Oh no, I messed up. Showing my inexperience in moderating a forum, I've managed to delete this thread instead of successfully merging it with another. I feel horrible, it was an outstanding thread. I really hope that your logos are still out there and you'll be able to post them again. There were so...
