Falling Frontier looks like the space RTS game of our dreams by DeepState_Auditor in scifi

[–]HoodedHorse 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Falling Frontier is a very different game than Stellaris--much more local in focus. You control smaller flotillas of ships, each with a crew of named officers with unique perks/abilities, and engage in tactical maneuvers like hiding your fleet's heat signature near a gas giant. The game also plays out in a single Solar System, compared to Stellaris' massive galaxy-wide focus.

Fragile Existence RTS/4X (with active pause), super-short June teaser video. Take command of the last fleet of humankind in full 3D solar systems, coupled with spherical ground unit movement akin to PA, research, scavenge and find a way to survive in a universe that seems intent on our extinction. by hereticbloodline in 4Xgaming

The video looks amazing. So you deploy ground units to explore and gather resources from the planet, while your fleet remains in orbit? Do you usually only do this to one planet at a time, and then move on with the entire fleet, or do you sometimes leave forces on the ground while the fleet visits other planets, or do things like build temporary bases?

Hi everyone! Linked is an article from PCGamesN on Falling Frontier, discussing some of what we've been revealing as part of E3 press week. I (Hooded Horse) am the publisher, and the game is being developed by Stutter Fox Studios. If you'd like more info, I'll be glad to answer any questions, or you can join the developer's Discord or check out the game on Steam.

RTS with deep economics. All resources are physical and must be transported to each point in the supply chain. by HoodedHorse in u/HoodedHorse

i've seen a couple ads from you and your replies show you're passionate about that project.

That's nice of you to say! Yes, my goal in founding Hooded Horse was to create a specialized strategy game publisher, as I love the genre. So it's all very fun, both talking to players here, and also working with the developers of the games we publish.

i'll be keeping an eye on the project and snag it when its released.

Thank you, that's appreciated!

Terra Invicta, a grand strategy game involving geopolitics and expansion in our Solar System, where you play as one of seven ideological factions divided in their response to an alien invasion.

We haven't determined a final price yet, but it will be priced comparably to other PC strategy games, and less than AAA prices.

The game has both pause and time acceleration buttons.

We don't have a definite release date yet. Game dev is always unpredictable for time requirements, and we want to avoid any pressure to rush the game out before it is ready. The developer is committed to ensuring players get a good experience, and we probably won't be able to be certain of a specific date until we get fairly close to it.

We won't be able to give you a definite answer yet, but we certainly hope the game will work with Proton. Thanks for the wishlist, it is very much appreciated!

The release has been delayed to later this year. The developer is working hard to get the game ready for players, but we also don't want to rush things before they are ready.

A Skirmish mode is planned, where you explore and conquer proceduraly generated Solar Systems.

Yes, Titan Rising is the first of multiple campaigns.

Paid expansions are a possibility for the future, but our basic plan is to deliver a complete game for a fair price, so there will be a lot of content added both during Early Access and as updates after release.

The developer is committed to ensuring high quality. Early Access won't start until the game is ready for players, and we are planning on likely years of work in EA patching and expanding before we finally declare it version 1.0. Even after that, there will likely be additional content and expansions coming.

One of our goals at Hooded Horse as a game publisher, is to only work with development studios who plan extensive post-release support and expansion. That's true of Stutter Fox Studios and Falling Frontier, and it's also true of the other games we are publishing (Pavonis's Terra Invicta, and KatHawk's Alliance of the Sacred Suns).

Basically, I understand how important post-release support is to strategy game players, and ensuring it is done well is a fundamental part of our business model as a publisher, as well as the reputation we hope to build with players.
