A downloadable game for Windows

Beware! This game is really early in development. It's currently more like a tech demo than a game. The main purpose of this project was to learn how to write my own game engine. So after almost 3 years of trying out stuff, I'm slowly moving my focus towards making a game instead of only working on a game engine. 

So what can you do in this "game". Well right now it's just a simple multiplayer shooter. My biggest inspiration comes from 0x10c a game that Notch (creator of Minecraft) started working on but never released anything. The current assets are also taken from one of the 0x10c demos that are out (made by https://twitter.com/eldrone). Of course these will be replaced later with models and textures made by me. I will try to recreate similar look :D

In terms of gameplay I'm still undecided on what this game will end up being. I will  move away from the shooter genre and focus more on exploration, survival and simulation. As the name states, you will get a solar system assigned and your task is to explore it and make good use of it's resources. The planets will be randomly generated and have different tilts in their Y axes, which will make seasons possible. Oh and gravity is also a thing.  It will maybe feature a programmable computer to automate stuff or similar but that's pretty unlikely.

Please remember these are just random thoughts and nothing is set in stone yet. I'm going to work out a concrete plan in the following weeks. If you have any ideas or suggestions then please leave a comment!

Also I release this tech demo early so that I can engage with you guys and fix issues  that I may not recognize and also I want work with you on something together.

You can follow me on twitter.. I try to post as many updates as possible there 


Or follow the subreddit.. in which I'm not posting that much :D

When I try running the game, the menu appears and I press play, but all I see is a punch of black objects.

It doesn't run when I open the exe file. Any Ideas on how I could get it to run?

What exactly is the problem? I can't really post an fix for this version since it's old and the code has completely changed. :/

I'm not entirely sure what's happening. There's no sign that's it's running even when I run the exe file.
