Set in the future of a Cold War that never ended, Space Trucker is a FPS that takes you on a journey that spans the galaxy. You play as Vladimir Gagarin, a young russian who just wants to go home.


Lore
Early in the 20th century, THE UNITED STATES and the SOVIET UNION were locked in a technological battle known as the SPACE RACE - a COLD WAR made possible by captured German rocket technology and personnel following the end of World War II. The Soviets beat the US to space first, with the orbiting of Sputnik 1, and later beat the US to the first human in space, Yuri Gagarin. The race seemingly peaked with the US landing on the Moon.

Undeterred by rapid US progress the Soviets created a successful fusion reactor which enabled near infinite energy for rockets and ships, replacing the need for dangerous and volatile chemical fuels with hydrogen based water. Access to such power gave the US the ability to create a faster-than-light (FTL) drive capable of accelerating ships to speeds near that of light itself; this device set the stage for colonization of the solar system.

Construction of interplanetary ships followed under orders from the US government. They were launched a year later, and used to build the first permanent colony on the moon. The USSR copied the US starship design, and started commercial mining operations on Mars. The entire solar system was claimed by the worlds superpowers within the next decade. Commercial ships for transport, and luxury started to appear in the late 1980's. You are one of these drivers. Delivering goods to whichever superpower pays the most.

Story
Cold war tensions have reached an all time high and even though preparations for war are made, both sides still need to eat and get drunk. Enter Vladimir Gagarin, a young citizen of the USSR and captain of the vessel Vostok 42. Although his ship is old it is trustworthy. A first generation private civilian interplanetary freighter, or just space truck as they are called by general public. Vlad needs to make just one more delivery to the American owned Charon hypermarket near Pluto for his latest 6 month contract to be complete and then he can go home... However, like most things it's never that simple.

Features
  • Built using NeoAxis 3.3.2
  • 7 vast levels, some which require back tracking to complete objectives and filled with secrets.
  • 10 weapons, one which offers latest in mobile technology for 1993 a PDA with hacking capabilities.
  • Fully interactive space truck with 19 unique machines such as a fusion reactor, teleporter, and a FTL drive.
  • Nearest neighbor scaling instead of trilinear filtering to bring pixel art to 4k resolutions at 60 FPS without blur.
  • 2.5D directional sprite system instead of 3D models to compliment the art style for enemies and items in the game world.
  • Includes resource and map editor so custom scenarios and mods can be created (workshop support planned).
  • Soundtrack includes 69 electronic tracks in 10 different categories to compliment the story and action.

Looks quite promising, old 2.5D style is always a win for me :) Will there be any sort of a demo soon?
Voted yes on greenlight, wish you best luck, considering the whiny bunch that votes you are sadly gonna need it.

Later this year near December 2016 will release a demo with the opening act of the game, if not that then a 10 minute video (no commentary) playing through first level so people can see exactly what they are getting into.
Thank you for your kind words and your support! Excited to bring this project to life.

Always good to see your work Maxwolf, congrats on this. Reminds me of Duke Nukem ( a massive complement for sure...).
