ScrumbleShip - Pre-Alpha Release

Posted by Dave Seaman on Monday, 7 November 2011

This is a strange and interesting idea - you can make ships out of anything, including butter (yes, you read that right!) and... well, blow other ships up with them I guess.  I wonder if you can also make ships out of baked potatoes?  Still, I digress... The pre-alpha version (released under the Creative Commons Licence) is out now.

Official description:

ScrumbleShip is the most accurate space combat simulation devised to date. Gather resources, construct a capital ship out of individual blocks, then pilot it with AI or real-human help against other players.
  • Want to build a hulking behemoth with a three-meter thick titanium hull? You can do that.
  • How about a carrier with dozens of fighters? Sure, that too.
  • A ship made of butter that melts as soon as you turn the engines on? Of course!

It will be available for PC, Linux, and Mac. The license will be a quasi-open-source license, so expect plenty of mods and possibly ports to other systems.

There'll be a way to play the game solo, but the prime focus will be multiplayer games. The multiplayer is going to be composed of lots of small (~0-30 people) privately owned servers. This ensures diversity, and allows people to pick a server running the modifications they enjoy best.
