Nimbatus - The Space Drone Constructor is a procedurally generated action simulation game. Build space drones out of hundreds of different parts and explore a fully destructible galaxy. On your journey you will face deadly challenges on exotic planets and research groundbreaking new technology.

After successfully crowdfunding the development of their first project Niche - a genetics survival game, Stray Fawn Studio returns to Kickstarter with their second game Nimbatus - The Space Drone Constructor.

The Swiss indie game developer Stray Fawn Studio reached its $20’000 goal for Nimbatus - The Space Drone Constructor on Kickstarter within the first week and is still going strong with over $30’000 and more than a thousand backers only one third into the campaign. With the first stretch goal achieved and the second goal in close reach, Nimbatus is sure to grow into an interesting action simulation game.

Micha Stettler, lead programer of Nimbatus, started working on the game about four years ago. Because the project took forever to finish while working on it during his free time only, he decided to take the risk of quitting his day job. Micha founded a game studio to finish Nimbatus, living of his savings.
