Open Space is a niche, Polish title, kt The Aderians are a merchant nation. The project is created and developed by only a few people b, which imposes on the game a certain uncompromising character in terms of solutions used. Players take on the role of a fleet commander and have the task of expanding it and extending their influence in space. What strategy they choose is entirely up to them.
The path to victory
There are four races available in the game, from which Each race has a different style of play. Everyone also has access to unique ships and technology. Aderians are a merchant nation in and trader in which ho focus on peaceful interactions with others and thus multiply b wealth and resources. Their ships have more speed and payload than other races, at the cost of armor and weapons. The Wragburians are space pirates who They get rich relatively easily and quickly by raiding and pillaging, but they also run a higher risk of losing their fleet. Their ships have the strongest armament of all. The Martians are professional, well-trained soldiers, the best armored, but with less firepower than the pirates. They make up for it in direct combat, where their combat experience and organization. The fourth race – Blackirians – is not available to players. As described by tw The game creators, these are „astral spies” They are the ones who travel through space in intelligence units and have access to advanced technologies.
Divide and rule
The basic task of the player is to perform missions. Their pool is very diverse varied depending on who hich race is giving the mission. Pirates can e.g. You will need support when attacking an enemy fleet, while merchants will ask for help with transporting resources. While the choice of race and tactics is made during registration, there is nothing to prevent you from completing missions of other races during the game, which will result in a higher reputation over time. Finally we will get access to the units and technologies of the race (however, this can not be done with all races – After one race has gained enough recognition, the missions of the other races will no longer be available). It is worth noting that missions are not only ordered by the script of the game, but also appropriately high-ranking players in the hierarchy of the race. Carrying out missions will influence the also on the increase in the player's rank as dow Fleet masters.
Develop Technology and expansion of colonies is an important part of the game, but mainly Fleet management is an important part of the game. Without it, we won't be able to complete any missions. Each race has its own unique ships, which Orcs are divided into several groups and classes. There are mining ships, fighters, bombers, new generation ships. An interesting idea is the ability to design your own ships. To do this, you need to develop the right technologies and obtain construction plans for the various The missions of the other races will cease to be available The ships can be upgraded, increasing their capabilities). Thanks to this you can risk a statement that in the world of Open Space there is no dw ch the same fleets.
Not by fleet alone.
Opr As you manage your ships and execute missions, space offers you endless spaces to explore. During the exploration we can come across planets with moons, asteroids and space stations. All of them can be colonized, and on each of them you will be able to place different buildings. An important part of management is to invest in defense systems, cooling down the military enthusiasm of other players. Of course, each system is effective against a different type of threat, so a scanner that identifies the invader is useful .
Open Space is an interesting project. It deserves appreciation for the fact that such a small team is working on the game. This is not an easy game, gł Not least because the interface is not very clear and often not easy to understand the rules. But we don't want to judge niche games by how accessible (or not) they are. Open Space at a closer look presents many interesting solutions: races, zr Varied missions, a multitude of ships and the room for manoeuvre in their construction. Players who Those who like this atmosphere and won't be discouraged by the clumsy interface, can spend many hours with Open Space.
