We continue to work full-time on Shortest Trip *_*

We've been able to continue working full time and (if everything goes according to the plan) can continue this until Shortest Trip is ready and released. Expect more good news within February :3

Overivew of features & key changes since Indiegogo campaign demo:
(the new build is not out yet, we will let you  know when it is)

1. There is no constant resource cost any more.
    Instead, resource costs are now tied to distance travelled.

2. Aiming with ship weapons in combat is now done with the help of 
   "shot landing area" UI. The less accurate a weapon, the bigger the shot landing area.

3. Damage done against ship hitpoints is now visualized as scars 
    (damage tokens) on the ship which can be repaired by crew.

4. Some modules now work  without crew if ship bridge remains 
    operational (remote operation by bridge). Operating modules with crew also adds their skill bonus.

5. Enemy ships now have their own crewmembers who operate modules, 
    fight fires, repair stuff etc.

6. The main menu has a "Gallery" section where the player can collect pretty 
    scenery discovered in the game (currently a mockup).
    Numerous UI & smaller changes

And here are some screenshots and two new event illustrations for your viewing pleasure:

Indiegogo campaign completed, 3rd adventure comic revealed

Our Indiegogo campaign did pretty well! About 223 roguelikers contributed to our noble cause, and we were also approached by several cool publishers.
Before the campaign started, we agreed that development of the game itself shouldn't suffer because of it. The campaign probably earned a bit less because of that, but not delaying development is almost priceless for us :)
All Indiegogo contributors have our eternal gratitude and will receive a new playable within this year (seriously, thank you for helping us - we didn't lose our hope for humanity because of you!). We are currently working on a major combat system update. The new features havent been fully implemented yet but testing them feels already very satisfying.

Shortest Trip to Earth Comic 2, Indiegogo campaign ending

(click on image for full-screen size)

Our Indiegogo presale campaign will last only 4 more days!
If you haven't checked it out yet, please do

Overall, we are quite happy with the results. We made a decision right from the start that working with this campaign shouldn't slow down game development itself. The contributions that we received will help us survive until more resources are available for our development studio. Most importantly, we will continue full-time development as long as we can, even though it means eating more noodles. 

Thank you for your support,
Interactive Fate

Hello, we have great news!

We've released an open alpha/public demo for anyone to try, and the feedback has been overwhelmingly positive! (Shortest Trip became the most daily downloaded game within 2 weeks). Despite our initial fears, Fans of FTL welcomed us warmly and kept asking for more in comments of YouTube videos. Thank you so much, we love you <3!

Awesome gameplay video spotted:

As you might have noticed, the game has a new title. It is now officially called Shortest Trip to Earth.
