Update May 27th 2015

Synaide Technologies (ST) is the leading producer of prosthetic and robotic components for the Coalition, and continues to push the boundaries of science and technology. At their inception, ST specialized in artificial sapien neural networks. Following their successful line of brain enclosures, ST began extensive research and development with the goal of perfecting Celanese bodies and reducing both the risks and discomforts of the cyborgization process. Synaide Technologies went on to pioneer many features implemented in all modern Celanese models, cementing them in the megacorporation status they hold today.

Beta progress

Screen Shot 2015-05-25 at 5.33.12 PMOur Beta build is now really close to being ready for debugging and playtesting. If all goes well in the next two days we should start recording gameplay post it up Friday! If all does not go well, we’re pretty confident we will be able to do so next week.

The main thing we need to resolve is card sizes. Our Beta simulates retina iPad resolution even though it is on a desktop computer. So once that part is fixed we will all finally be able to enjoy the real game.

3D modeling

Screen Shot 2015-05-25 at 1.37.44 PMAs of right now Rafael is wrapping up on all of our asteroids, nebulae and various core planet types. Here you see one of his renders.

Next week, Rafael and two other 3D modelers will switch to working on space ships.

We will be making our 3D model space ships with modular components so that it is easy to create quick variations based on different needs or player modifications.
