Salvation Prophecy is a space epic. Four warring factions battle over control of the known galaxy. Space stations and planet colonies endure constant assault. You begin your journey as a soldier recruit. Through intense planet and space battle, your combat skills will be put to a grim test. Success is rewarded with powerful skills, combat gear, and ship upgrades, and you may rise in rank to become commander of your faction. Lurking in the dark recesses of the universe is a threat foreseen by an apocalyptic prophecy. A danger far greater than mankind's endless battles. The pursuit of the prophecy leads through distant alien worlds with deadly creatures and untold secrets. A chance for redemption, if only we find our way through that dark hour.

I'm not sure how well that would work out. It is very difficult to balance fights between large groups of units. This is especially true when the units on each side are different (e.g. the space station and battleships for space battles, or the colony units for planet battles). And of course the player tends to become a pretty gigantic wrecking ball at the higher ranks, which has a huge effect on battle outcomes.

With all these factors at play, it took a lot of work to make the 20 vs. 20 fun. The smallest change can make the game frustratingly impossible, or boring and easy. If the number of units was adjustable, that balance work would be destroyed.

So, that's why I didn't add it. ;)

Any way we get steam cd keys by chance for purchasing here? I prefer to keep the main games on one account but I had to get SP here instead of waiting...

If you need funding for an expansion after this gets greenlit, I suggest trying out on KickStarter if it's not already mentioned. This game is neat, and I don't see why it shouldn't get the funding.

Hey Hamish -
Wow thanks! For sure, I really enjoy discussing the design and gameplay of Salvation Prophecy (or any game) with people. The quality of conversation here on Desura is particularly good. For whatever reason, Desura seems to attract very smart and very cool folks.

I see from your gamingonlinux. profile that you're from Alberta. I made Salvation Prophecy while living a little further east on the prairies - Manitoba and Saskatchewan. Go Canada! :)

I hear what you're saying, megaflux.

I learned a ton, both design and technically, from making Salvation Prophecy. It is an unusual combination of space sim / shooter / action-RPG / strategy, and getting the pieces to fit together just right was a huge challenge. There weren't many other similar games to model the design after.

There's a few design aspects I think I could nail better the second time around. Agreed, there are a bunch of core components I could reuse and expand on. But there are also a few baseline design decisions I'd like to change as well. Also, I'd love to do a much bigger universe, and include much better modding support.

Either way, if I am in a financial position to keep working on big complicated space epics, it won't be to add piddily little DLCs. :)

@holocronweaver Hey Jesse - sorry for the slow reply. Appreciate the script/info. Glad you dig the Wyr. :) Mar 15 2014, 4:52am
@holocronweaver I can't, as it links to the PhysX libs, which only have 32-bit, and not 64-bit. It runs out of he box on Ubuntu 64 bit tho Mar 9 2014, 2:20pm
