The standalone ship builder is a self contained version of the complete spaceship editor component from the full game. It comes packaged with a few tracks from the full soundtrack and all the ships from the last two tournaments to try out and test your creations against.
To enter the tournament, just upload your creations to the Tournament Ship Submission Page. Everyone is welcome!
Complete rules and discussion on the forum post.
Don’t forget to back our Kickstarter!
As some of you may know we held a ship design contest where the goal is to design a ship that can fight against other player’s ships in an asynchronous AI controlled multiplayer battle.
We had a lot of great submissions from alpha testers and we are running the actual contest live on twitch in about 20 minutes.
You can see it live here: twitch.tv/manylegged
We will post a recorded version on Youtube later and edit the link in.
The competition is complete! There were some dramatically close battles and unexpected upsets, everyone learned a lot about building ships, and we have a list of AI behaviors to improve! Thanks everyone for submitting ships and tuning in. We will be posting the results and recording soon.
The Crusier category finals were postponed due to technical difficulties – we will finish running them soon!
Here are screenshots showing some of the entrants. Protohara Probe Mk. 2 narrowly defeated Protohara Drone in the Probe category (both Protohara proton beam’d the rest of the probes without difficulty), while Ontos very narrowly defeated BATTLEDEATH in the Dreadnought category after several changes in position.
We are excited to announce that we will be showing off Reassembly at the Indie Megabooth at PAX Prime at the end of August, just a few weeks away! We will be at kiosk 19 of the Minibooth section – if you will be at the convention come say hi, try out the game, and grab some fliers.

We decided to change the name of our game from “Gamma Void” to “Reassembly”. The new name is more specific, descriptive, and meaningful and we think better is a better match. We also wanted to avoid confusion with several other games which also have the word “Void” in their title, in particular modular spaceship building games “Kinetic Void” and “Void Hunters.” Our website will be updated over the next few days to reflect the change and the next alpha build will have a new title screen.
A few people have contacted me asking when the next alpha build will be going out and whether they are included in the alpha program.
The plan is for the next official alpha build to go out some time in August. If you are on the alpha list you will get an email, and I will also make a post here. If you emailed me about the alpha build and I haven’t responded yet, don’t worry, I will go through everyone before sending out the email. No one has been removed from the alpha list.
I put a color picker in the new-game-screen to allow personalizing your faction. I’m excited to see what people come up with!
I love it when bugs turn out to have really cool effects. I was messing around with the HDR effects rendering and accidentally stopped clearing the floating point weapon and particle effect FBO in between frames, so the effects just pile up. Probably not something I can use directly in the game, but cool enough to share.
I’m going to be at the Game Developer Conference in San Francisco from March 17th to March 21st. If anyone wants to see a demo of Gamma Void or just grab a beer – send me an email!
The time for beaming screenshots into the aethernet has arrived again. It’s screenshot friday afternoon!
There are some new screenshots of Gamma Void on my screenshot saturday reddit post, this week featuring a bunch of content from alpha testers on the forum and some especially cool glitches.
The first wave of alpha builds have been sent out, and lots of bugs have been discovered already!
If you are interested in alpha testing, please send an email to email@example.com requesting access. Everyone is welcome!
Update: We now have an IndieDB profile: http://www.indiedb.com/games/gamma-void. The game is called “Gamma Void.”
