Hey everyone. I wanted to officially share the game I've been working on called Galaxis Online. It's very much a work-in-progress right now but its coming together nicely and I'm ready to share! ;)

Galaxis Online was an old, browser-based game I created like 10 years ago. It was a MMORPG but not very "real-time". Impact is going to change all that giving the game new life. In it's prime it had around 3,000 active players. Below are some screenshots of the game so far but very subject to change! Here is the intro storyline:

Late in the 21st century humans started searching the galaxy, sending probes and unmanned missions. They made a lot of noise, asking “is anybody out there?”

In 2117, somebody answered. A race known as the Vorrid struck Earth, one of the few planets left in the galaxy that was rich in resources. The Vorrid hit quickly, without warning. The human race united like never before in order to combat this new threat. Alien technology was re-engineered and genetic experiments created the perfect warriors to face the Vorrid in battle.

The war raged on for decades and spread throughout the galaxy. The human race expanded, capturing territory, creating outposts and making their presence known. It was a brutal fight with their genetically engineered warriors making many gains. Finally, the humans fought the Vorrid to a standstill and a truce was signed and the war ended.

Now, two hundred years later, the war is but a memory but the damage was done. The genetically engineered race flourished and broke from their ancestors calling themselves the Cadien. There was an uneasy peace among races but the entire galaxy was dying and efforts quickly turned to survival.

With human ingenuity and Vorrid technology new methods to travel were created and none too soon. Humans, Cadien and the Vorrid all pushed further than they ever thought was possible and a distant galaxy was discovered that appeared to be untouched by any race. This galaxy was named Galaxis.

News spread quickly of Galaxis, a fresh galaxy with an abundance of resources prime for the taking. Fueled by need and greed each race took up arms once again conspiring for galactic conquest. Pitched into the maelstrom of war you’ve been assigned a colony ship and commanded to assist your race in total domination of Galaxis.

I'm also trying something new and live streaming my desktop as I'm working on the game. You can follow along as I'm coding, working on the graphics and testing the game. I invite anyone who is interested in the game or Impact in general to join me and chat about it.

Be sure to create an account and 'Follow' me to be notified when I go live.

There isn't a playable version yet but I look forward to the day I can let Alpha testers give it a try.

I saw some of it when you were showing me last night and it looks epic. Will definitely try to follow along should time differences allow. Awesome idea to live stream as well! Someone suggested that maybe I should live stream me trying to build mine as I blog about it so much, but the footage would probably mostly just consist of me searching Google :P

Wow, very nice! Are you going to be using Node.js for the multiplayer?

I agree - the graphics look very nice!

I'm not into space adventure games, but I really want to try this when it's finished.

Looking great so far, keep it up
