 Development Diary
Developer Diary Tuesday, 16th 2004f March 2004, at 5:57 pm GMT
We are now keeping a development diary, and have opened a new section on the forum. We will be going into far more detail than usual about the game development process, so it may be of interest to any aspiring game developers, or just if you'd like a peek behind the scenes.

The first entry has been posted and covers some of the initial work we've been doing to get Battlescape up and running.

 Starscape 1.4e Update
Starscape News Friday, 20th 2004f February 2004, at 4:27 pm GMT
Starscape 1.4e has been released. Existing users can get the update from the customer panel
Or If you are using the demo version, get the demo update here

Brief overview of what's changed in this version:
  • Success/failure screen animations.
  • New equipment: Mining laser and tractor beam for the Aegis
  • Mid level batteries and shields are more useable
  • Iceteroid mining is now much more dangerous.
  • A couple of nice new explosion effects.
  • All configuration options are now accessible via a dialogue box. This pops up the first time the game is run and is also available from a shortcut on the startmenu.
  • Fixed D3D sprite corruption when task switching and changing options.
  • Further bug fixes and user interface useability improvements.

A full list of enchancements and bug fixes can be found on the update pages.

 Starscape Nominated For 'Best Graphics of the Year'
DIY Games Friday, 13th 2004f February 2004, at 2:16 pm GMT
Gaming review site DIY Games have just published their Game Of The Year awards, and Starscape has been chosen as a finalist for the 'Best Graphics of the Year' category!

We've said it before, but it's nice to be nominated alongside some of our own favourite games of the year such as Alien Shooter and next to games such as massive assault that were made with a much bigger team and budget.

Check out all the nominations here.

Battlescape News Wednesday, 11th 2004f February 2004, at 10:33 pm GMT
We are finally able to announce the name for our next game, which will be 'Battlescape'. Now we can stop saying 'the next game' on the forums!

We've opened a dedicated section on the forum for Battlescape discussion. The previous thread in 'General' (which was one of the most visited topics on our forum and had well over 100 posts!) has been moved and chopped up into its various subjects.

We've also included some initial design information and two concept art pictures. We intend to post updates and progress information as often as we can with Battlescape so that everyone can see where we are, offer opinion and get a behind the scenes look at game development.

Check out the new Battlescape forum and post any questions here:

 Starscape Wins 'Independent Game Of The Year'
Independent Game of the Year Tuesday, 30th 2004f December 2003, at 4:46 pm GMT
'Independent Game Of The Year' - The final category of the Game Tunnel 2003 awards has been announced and Starscape is the winner! Game Tunnel's four judges voted Starscape number one out of the ten nominees and Starscape also won the reader's poll.

Read the full story here

We were really happy just to be nominated alongside some of this year's classics such as Alien Shooter and Samurai. Winning the top category is a great way to end the year for Moonpod.

Judging by the quality of titles released in the past 12 months, 2004 is going to be a great year for independent games. We look forward to seeing them and also releasing our next game. See you all in 2004, have a Happy New Year!
