Dual Universe Kickstarter launched

Space game fans have yet another reason to be happy today, as French studio Novaquark has just launched a Kickstarter campaign for its ambitious single shard Massively Multiplayer Online space sandbox Dual Universe.

The campaign’s goal has been set at €500,000, a number that seems easily reachable for a project like this one, considering that the development team has already shown plenty of footage. The minimum pledge tier for a copy of the game is a measly €12, though gamers interested in checking out the Alpha build should think about the considerably more expensive €100 Gold Founder Pack.

 

Dual Universe Gameplay Features

  • Boundless Massively Multiplayer Game: potentially millions of players can share the same universe at the same time. One world, no boundaries, no zones, no instances.
  • Rich emergent gameplay mechanisms enable players to create their own societies.
  • Fully editable world: dig, deploy, craft, create and shape almost everything.
  • Giant player-made ships and constructions can be inhabited and host large crews.
  • Immersive first person view in a futuristic sci-fi universe.
  • Realistic in-game economy (based on market orders and financial tools).
  • Scriptable constructions (ships, buildings, etc.) using LUA: players can build their own piloting, AI or factory automation.

Technological Features

  • Continuous Single-Shard Cluster: the technology behind the “Boundless” MMO approach.
  • Procedurally generated planets, revealed as players explore further and further.
  • 25cm precision voxel technology to modify the environment or construct buildings/ships
  • Unlimited LOD (Level of Detail) technology allows planet-sized construction to be built
  • 64bit Planetary Engine: Smooth transitions from planet surfaces, through atmosphere and into space with no limits to how far the player can travel or see.

  1. Whats up this is somewhat of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding knowledge so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated!
