Skrupel TNG: a turn based strategy game

Recommended Posts

Hi!

Skrupel TNG is based on the original Skrupel by Bernd "Husten" Kantoks. It is open source and completely free.

Players command a space-faring civilization to explore, colonize and conquer randomly generated galaxies. There are currently 4 factions with different space ships with abilities like jump engines or cloaking. Users can create their own matches and join others. For new players there is a tutorial as well as AI opponents.

Here is a screenshot of the ingame UI:

The galaxy map in the center shows surrounding planets and ships. Each planet and ship you own creates a visibility area around so players have to manage a fog-of-war mechanic. 

I'm still working on it so any feedback will be much appreciated 🙂

I like it looks clean , im a big fan of space/galaxy MMO , i used to play DarkOrbit from BigPoint.

i would say you need to make the UI dark or gray, invest some time in a good look for the game and you are good to go (my stupid designer mind talkin 🙄).

but over all good, keep up the good work 🙂

Thanks for your feedback! I am in fact thinking about redesigning the landingpage at least as it is kinda bare-bones right now. I will probably add some screenshots there and just more details about what the game actually is.

I don't think I will do a dark redesign to be honest - I just don't like dark websites and dark themes very much ^^. I was never particular good a visual design myself, that's why I heavily rely on Bootstrap for all the colors and stuff 😉

I like darker designs because I'm used to looking at screens for a large portion of my day and lighter designs either leave me with a headache or hurt my eyes. I do like the way the site looks though.
