Ship Contest!

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:

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.
