  Galactic Princess - Kickstarter

[This unedited press release is made available courtesy of Gamasutra and its partnership with notable game PR-related resource GamesPress.]

Today is a good day to look at the sky, take a deep breath, and ask yourself:

Did I ever dream of a life full of excess?

Do another story is waiting for me up there?

How far would I go to remain free?

Would I enjoy ruling my own spaceship?

All those questions lead inevitably to this one:  Am I, deep inside, a space smuggler awaiting for my destiny to rise?

If your answer is yes, smile, we may have something for you.

But if your answer is no… then… oh come on, smuggling in space! Of course you’d like it, just have a look.


Our team is proud to announce the launching of the Kickstarter campaign for the space survival game: Galactic Princess.

The game will lead you through the mysteries of the wild space and offer you the commandment of your own smuggler spaceship.

You’ll only be submitted to this one rule: survive at any cost!

To do so, you will need to build every aspect of your spaceship, from its external to its internal design, as well as to recruit crew members along your way to glory.

Galactic Princess will allow a great freedom of experimentation, implying management, strategy and sandbox mechanisms.

For more detailed informations, please refer to the attached press kit document, or visit our Kickstarter page.


About our intentions:

we plan to provide additional content according to the Kickstarter campaign success, and our list of stretch goals would consequently increase the game potential. Here are a few examples of the ideas we’d love to realize: add more races, quests, module shapes, weapons and statistics; implement a weapon editor; offer 2d; create a gravity/orbiting system; allow planet exploration; propose a multiplayer mode. Of course you’ll have more information about those on our KS page.

Finally, we would like to end up talking about our wish to imply the community in the content creation, facilitate the mod support by offering a simplified mod activation as well as to provide editing tools. If the game is a success and the community always growing, it would be our pleasure to hear their wishes and keep on developing their best ideas, as the new one we’ll have ourselves.
