So here we have a promising indie RTS title on kickstarter with some fantastic graphics, Contact Vector. Stephen Moorhouse, the developer has a goal of £85,000, has 18 years of experience in the gaming industry. I’ve not had a chance to dig into the free demo yet, so I’m not sure how solid the game play itself is so far. This game won’t be about gathering resources but rather how you use your armada to control your territories. Every campaign map will be randomly generated solar systems so each game will be different, increasing replay-ability. Currently it’s set to be a single-player but if enough moola is crowdfunded he’ll be working towards adding multiplayer elements as well.
After looking into it a little deeper it looks like you’ll be able to customize your ships! Which is great compared to many RTS’ where you are restricted to a specific set of stats for a unit. You can gear them up or strip them down for speed, go for long range or short range or a mix and so forth.
