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


It's been a while since my last update (not since February, though!), but I'm thrilled to share some exciting progress with you regarding Halcyon Online, a monumental project that's shaping up to be truly remarkable.

Developing such an expansive game is no small feat, especially for a lone developer like myself. However, fate intervened when a user of my other project, FaB DB, discovered my mention of Halcyon Online on the FaB DB discord. They expressed interest in helping, and thus began our collaboration.

I must say, this partnership has been immensely valuable. Together, we've accomplished significant milestones, including player registration, galaxy creation, homeworld planet selection, and initial colony setup. We're also working on an in-house administrative application to streamline various tasks, such as user management and galaxy customization. Moreover, our game design is progressing smoothly. We've extensively planned the initial phase of player engagement, covering aspects like construction, research, and the introduction of intriguing spacecraft.

These early strides are vital for establishing a solid foundation, refining development standards, and tackling unfamiliar technologies. I'm genuinely pleased with our progress so far, and if all goes well, we might even conduct an alpha test by the end of the year.

Looking ahead, our next development phase will focus on expanding players' opportunities for construction, research, and the establishment of strong Homeworld foundations. There's plenty more in store, including captivating lore for Halcyon Online and the possibility of incorporating in-game artwork.

Stay tuned for further updates, as we continue this exciting journey. Halcyon Online is set to redefine the MMO RTS landscape, offering an unforgettable experience. Prepare to embark on an extraordinary interstellar adventure!
