Sticks & Starships: Genesis Theatrical Trailer, Screens and Info – April 9, 2014

In Sticks & Starships: Genesis, a voxel-based sci-fi fantasy for PC and Mac, players will advance from a primitive tribal culture to industrialization to a galactic empire. The game is to be both single-player and multi-player.

Explore a randomly-generated home planet, learn masonry, mill-work, metallurgy and alchemy. Collect resources, refine products and build increasingly sophisticated structures.

Solve problems using scientific reasoning. Build such complex systems as nuclear reactors and interplanetary rockets.

Aloft Studios seeks to improve the procedural-world, voxel-based game model by refining a proven formula of modularity and emergent gameplay and adding the empirical “tinkering” element present in today’s engineering games.

Aloft is also sharing a draft of its Kickstarter page, which is not yet live, to ask for your feedback. “What do you like? What could be better? Anything missing?” You can also request notification when the campaign is launched.

The game’s first demo should be ready for release around June or July of this year. It will feature generations, player navigation and world interaction, and some HUD.

I've been with JA in one capacity or other since 2003. I'm currently website administrator. I'm also a digital artist (my avatar is one of my creations). I write reviews and articles, create graphics and basically help tend the site. It's work I enjoy very much. I love playing games of all kinds, but adventure and RPGs are my favorites (particularly scary/dark/unsettling ones). At the top of my list are The Cat Lady, The Longest Journey, Dreamfall, Still Life (first one only), Scratches and Culpa Innata. I'm a dyed-in-the-wool recluse and prefer the company of animals, hardware and ghosts to human beings (no offense). And no bio would be complete without my saying that I do NOT care for phones of ANY sort. Further, I think Dell computers are garbage and that Microsoft has become megalomaniacal.
