Latest Post Infoslate #8 - April update by Kirk Bushell public

Halcyon Online is an upcoming, 4x (eXplore, eXpand, eXploit, eXterminate), massively-multiplayer, real-time strategy game. Players begin their journey on a planet that becomes their Homeworld, and then expand to the stars, exploring their immediate surroundings (star system) before going further to other systems, and other sectors.

Set in the unforgiving harshness of space, Halcyon Online is designed to inspire users through its artwork and presentation, as well as create engaging player experiences through its unique game mechanics.

Inspired heavily by the browser-based RTS games of old (such as Starsphere, Planetarion and Dark Galaxy), Halcyon Online will begin a new chapter, leveraging the experiences and nostalgia of old, whilst breathing fresh air into a somewhat stagnant subgenre of gaming.


By subscribing to my posts and newsletter, you'll be kept abreast of the various changes I'm making on the game, and be across the various game mechanics, lore, and gorgeous artwork that I'm purchasing for the game. If you become a paying member, you'll also get access to the private Twitch streams and videos I'll be recording, which will showcase myself working on the project, exploring game mechanics and generally engaging with the community, something I hope to do, starting once per week.
