Spaceship colony sim 'Space Haven' seems to be a big hit on Kickstarter

Posted by , | Views: 3,439

Space Haven from developer Bugbyte (Battlevoid: Harbinger, Battlevoid: Sector Siege) managed to get funded in less than 48 hours and it keeps on growing.

Against their original goal of $40K they've smashed through over $100K and they still have 20 days left of the campaign, if it continues as it is they will likely still pull in quite a bit more!

More about it:

Space Haven combines the emergent story telling components of RimWorld with a tile-based gas-simulation system seen in Oxygen Not Included.

Want to be a pirate and attack and steal from anyone you meet? Maybe you want to be a slave trader and capture crew members from other factions and sell them on the market? You could be a notorious alien hunter, fighting aliens aboard derelict ships and scavenging their meat. Or perhaps you're the good guy fighting pirates and helping civilians? Space Haven aims to give you the freedom to role play.

I spent a number of hours with the early build (screenshot) they sent over directly and I was very impressed with it! It looks good, seems to perform well and I didn't find a huge amount of bugs which isn't surprising as they've been working on the architecture of the game for three years.

Find their Kickstarter here if you wish to help fund this great-looking indie title. As a reminder, they also have a Steam page up and ready for you to wishlist and follow.

Go Bugbyte!

Possibly they'd create 2 new games instead of 1 with all that money?

Bugbyte, eh? I assume there's no connection with the original publisher of Manic Miner? I mean, with them being Finnish and everything.

Weird to see that name again, though.

I looks great. There is a good chance that I'll get it on GoG release day (and Starmancer).

Man, all Kickstarter games recently showed here got me really interested.

I dont know if i just didnt kept it up with the kickstarter news anymore, but it seemed to me that for a time it was difficult to interesting games come out again in the platform, but now a lot of new games that i really want to support are being funded.

I dont know if the universe is just making ideas that i like or there is actually something in there

I've got the confirmation from the developers that the game will be available as DRM-free (they plan to release on GoG(sic) but we all know how it goes sometimes ;) ).

QuoteDRM-free! And you will get to choose between a Steam key and GoG key when the game is officially released. So both DRM-free and key for Steam or GoG.
