Live out the most pivotal century in mankind's history
Where Kerbal Space Program might inspire the next Werner Von Braun, we're hoping to provide vision for the next generation of Space CEO's and Civil Leaders!
There are countless fortunes in space, let's go make them!
With companies like SpaceX, Blue Origin, Planetary Resources and Deep Space Industries, and countless more taking to the skies, the future of humanity in space is brighter than ever! Players in Asteroid Ventures will be able to explore and colonize the solar system, or prepare ships to discover what lies beyond.
Work on Asteroid Ventures started as an open source simulation project for the NASA 2014 Space Apps Challenge. This project later recieved funding from SpaceGambit, to expand the capabilities of our project. Originally called Cosmosium, we have since switched from ThreeJS to Unreal Engine 4. This allows for faster iteration of development and more immersive graphics.
Players will colonize the Moon, setup large space stations, gain a foothold on Mars, capture Near-Earth Asteroids and create infrastrure in the Main Asteroid Belt. Some daring souls might even send derigibles to Venus and the gas giants!
With a focus on building a production chain in space or controlling trade through Orbit Cyclers, players must think tactically about technology, policy and prospecting. In addition, the interplay between private companies, national agencies, and new space-based sovereignties will play out by struggling to control trade-routes and territory by means of shareholder buyouts, embargoes, piracy and sabotage!
The gameplay is going to be out of this world! Stay tuned to find out more, as the design develops. Subscribe with your email below, and be sure to follow our blog and social media pages!
