After a long struggle with my tendency to creep in features I managed to get the simple space strategy game I'm working on, eXo, near completion. My aim with this game is to make an accessible, easy to control action-oriented space strategy game that looks basic but hypnotizingly colorful. I think it worked out quite ok in the end but I'll let you judge soon(ish) when I got a beta version ready and post a link here!
Here's some animated GIFs to give you an idea:
A circular star map zoomed out:
Several empires battling it out:
Attack on a single star that has a starbase in orbit:
It is based on a Java4K entry
of mine called Galactic Conquest, and developed for Android & Windows (for now) using LibGDX. Graphics & sound effects are homebrew, music is a royalty free purchase.
