Jump Lanes


Jump Lanes video game Developed by GargantuanCake and published by GargantuanCake

Developed by GargantuanCake and published by GargantuanCake

The steam train revolutionized transportation on Earth. It was only a matter of time before the same thing happened in space with different technology. Take control of a company building jump lanes through the timeline of their development. Will you build a successful company or fall behind your competition? Each turn you must decide between expanding your network, exploiting economic opportunities, or upgrading your hardware. Be careful which decisions you make; too much time upgrading may allow others to get the best opportunities first.

The core of the game is a series of scenarios with a set of specific goals to achieve within a certain time frame. Each round you receive three turns and must choose what to do carefully. Will you expand your network, implement new technologies, or focus on deliveries? Each time you take a turn any competition also gets to take a turn which may cause them to get to the best opportunities before you. However you must also consider profits in the long run. Profits are not immediate and also decay over time.

The primary inspiration is train-based board games. If you enjoy those then this game was made for you.

Star-Twine


Star-Twine video game by SPARSE//GameDev

Made by SPARSE//GameDev

Star-Twine is an abstract real-time strategy game in which you control a point of light created by a dying star. Battles unfold on sprawling three-dimensional maps as you collect energy and build structures to attack your opponent. Chill out to the atmospheric visuals and soundtrack as you plan your next move.

Star-Twine is a game of positioning and timing. Energy Nodes are used to collect resources, Turrets fire at the enemy, Black Holes absorb nearby projectiles, Sentinels stake out territory and Missile Launchers deal massive damage to an area. Through building these simple structures, many different strategies emerge.

Star-Twine includes a single player campaign, skirmish mode, and multiplayer(Note that the standalone itch.io version no longer supports online matchmaking, but continues to support Direct IP and LAN play-- For online matchmaking, Steam is required).

Just Add Noise


Just Add Noise video game Developed by Yeast Lab and published by Yeast Lab

Developed by Yeast Lab and published by Yeast Lab

An alpha version of Just Add Noise - Space Island is available on Gamejolt and Itch. The Steamworks team tell me that Just Add Noise crashes after loading, I have been unable to recreate this crash so have been unable to build a version that I can upload to Steam.

Create a world, play it music and watch it react and evolve.

Just Add Noise lets you control an audio reactive world, build a scene and play it your own music. Control how your scene evolves by adjusting settings, build a set for your next stream or create a scene and watch it grow or fail.

Build the perfect ecosystem, fertilized by your music and watch it bloom or will your ecosystem fail?

What will your music attract? Depending what plants you grow and the music you play, different creatures will visit your scene.

Just Add Noise is a solo indie project made in Unreal Engine. An early access version should be available soon.
