KAELOS (Project KA) is a light realtime 3x strategy in space (6 months dev time, 2018).

The mission you have is simple: "Colonize" planets.

Example of Winning Conditions:

exploration victory, explore 75% of the planet's surface

exobiology victory, find 3 alien lifeforms

and many more to discover!

Current Features

  • all buildings and their functionality
  • all units and their extended functionality (both primary and secondary abilities)
  • full upgrade system (30 upgrades)
  • full mouse and keyboard support (keyboard shortcuts: Enter for Fullscreen, A (fill analyzer), H (build headquarters) etc.)
  • cursor interrogation (hover over points of interest and/or middle mouse click on squares/areas) and cursor helpers (e.g. cursor will turn red at an invalid action or green for a valid one plus an additional blueprint-like sprite)
  • multiple points of feedback with both valid and invalid actions (e.g flashing triangle led, shaking text, red cursor etc.)
  • 2 resources: MC (Metal-Crystal) and HF (Human Factor, which decays as people get old, the in-real-life speed of the game would be very fast)
  • once per game, Request Supplies from back home, if you are running out of resources
  • violent-free gameplay, no fighting/war/combat
  • multiple ways of gathering resources (e.g from unit actions, from buildings, from upgrades)
  • one single screen where all the action takes place
  • one map with all area types and functionality
  • statistics screen at victory
  • high replayability via multiple ways to win (and to fail) the map (hint: finish the game once and you will see on the stats screen, other ways you can win the map)
  • light realtime 3X gameplay experience (a game would take from 15 minutes up to 45 minutes from start to end)
  • consequences of real(Earth) life issues
  • wrap-exploring the edges of the map
  • basic menu layout (main,pause,retry)
  • basic anomaly functionality (when in contact with buildings, resources are being depleted)
  • basic back-end analytics (you might get a firewall/network notification from KA)
  • easter-eggs/secrets
  • bugs...

To Do List

  • actual graphics (everything in the build is pretty much a placeholder, art WIP screenshots below)

  • sound/music
  • multiple maps
  • economy tweaks
  • interactive tutorial
  • story (for each planet, you find a piece of history)
  • semi-able anomaly (overhauling the feature in the future)
  • placeholder text helper on some interrogations (e.g. buildings)
