Procedurally generated space sandbox game Avorion has officially launched after three years of early access development from indie game studio Boxelware. With more than 260,000 copies already sold, version 1.0 of the game is now available on the Humble Store and Steam for $24.99.
In Avorion, players can explore space while aboard a ship that they will design themselves through an easy-to-use, but powerful editor. They will be able to choose what role they will play in this game. Players can become generals, traders, explorers, or pirates.
While players explore the universe of space sandbox game Avorion, they affect a complex system of diplomatic and economic alliances. Through their efforts, Generals may conquer using their fleet, Traders can amass their fortune, Explorers might discover the secrets of the universe, and Pirates may roam the stars at will.
Traders need to track and assess supply and demand throughout different systems to make their money. If they have poor relations with dominant factions, it might be risky to enter certain territories. Similar to a real-time strategy game, Generals will command their fleet and take control of problematic sectors through force. Attaching a system might have unforeseen consequences that lead to retaliatory strikes if other players form alliances among themselves.
Konstantin Kronfeldner, founder of Boxelware and creator of space sandbox game Avorion says, “Avorion offers fans of space games an incredibly complex sandbox that let’s them shape their own experience. We are thrilled to see Avorion leave Early Access and turn into a full-blown game. We could not have completed this project without the support of our dedicated community. Releasing Avorion is a dream come true for me”.
Avorion has left Early Access and is now available for purchase on Steam and the Humble Store for $24.99. For more information on the game, visit Boxelware now.
