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

A space business simulation / strategy game by •IndieSputnik• that is going to be a Facebook application.

About Planetize.Me!

In this game each user owns a unique solar system and starts with two or three planets. His goal is to find minerals, fossils and other raw materials on planets, mine them, transport to other planets for processing and then to export it earning money and gaining levels. The higher your level is, the better spacecrafts you can buy, the more advanced technologies you can use to expand your solar system, to form new planets, and many other things. The game has a sandbox-like feature: you can build a space station from blocks, make it look any way you like, and power it up with solar panels.

Planetize.Me! is an upcoming game that you can play with your friends (or alone, if you want to), share resources with other people and even give someone a rocket for the birthday, let us say. It's your own space business!

Release

Release date of Planetize.Me! depends on the success of our Kickstarter campaign: if we have funds, the game will be released in September 2014. So we need more people to know about this campaign, and the link is http://kck.st/1dgo6d3

About the company

•IndieSputnik• was established in 2012 by Shalmu and Tonya, two enthusiasts fascinated by space travelling and sci-fi literature. Inspired with books of Isaac Azimov and Ray Bradbury, they spent a lot of time dreaming about outer space and inventing future worlds. As a result of this collaboration, Planetize.Me! was born.
