Update 7

  • Increased size of stars, planets, and asteroids.

  • 5 new ships! The rare Interon ships are powerful fighters with multiple weapon mounts.

  • Ships rebalanced. Number of weapon mounts more important when calculating PL/price.

  • Ship AI now has a reaction time, making it have more realistic accuracy. Should make enemy ships less OP when using beam weapons, and reduce the overall difficulty of the game.

  • New weapon - Vulcan: Heavy rapid fire machine gun with explosive bullets. Deals extra damage against ship hulls.

  • Made Plasma projectiles larger.

  • Reduced damage for Plasma Throwers

  • Progression rate decreased a bit - income changed to once every 10 seconds

For you Linux users out there, Dark System now has a Linux build

Update 6:

  • New Plasma Thrower weapons! Basically a really sweet flamethrower that deals tons of damage at short range.

  • Issue with ships firing at you when you aren’t firing at them should be much more rare

  • Complete equipment rebalancing

  • Reduced stat increases between tiers for all equipment except engines.

  • Beam weapons now use more energy and cost a bit more

  • Plasma weapons now deal more damage

No worries. Thanks leafo!

This spam is really getting out of control. I would suggest a "Report As Spam" button on threads, and probably a "Report" button on user profiles. Might as well make it automated, where if a user gets more than a few Reports for spam, automatically hide all of their threads and posts until they can be reviewed by a moderator. That would take care of the current issue pretty quickly. 

Update 5 is now live

  • Star Map added! This should make it much easier to find where your missions are. It still needs a bit of work and a tutorial.

  • Changed enemy AI targeting to be less ridiculously accurate (mostly with beam weapons). Still have some work to do in this area.

  • Fixed bug with automatic edge scrolling when you are alt-tabbed

  • Fixed bug with not being able to attack star systems after returning to galaxy during tutorial

  • Many small tweaks
Just added Repulsor Beam weapons! You can use them to push enemy ships into stars, planets, asteroids, or other ships.

Hey everyone! Dark System recently entered open alpha and the feedback has been really great so far.

Dark System is a physics-based top down space shooter in an open galaxy. It has really fun combat, and meaningful progression and customization. Check out the game page for more info!

If you like games like Space Pirates and Zombies, Xenoraptor, Ring Runner: Flight of the Sages, or Endless Sky, I think you will really like Dark System. It is still very early in development so there are still a lot more features to come!

If you have any questions I would be happy to answer them.

We are looking for as much feedback as we can get, so please check out the game and let us know what you think! Thanks!

Post your feedback here if you don't mind!

Just released the alpha for Dark System, and people seem to like it so far. I would really appreciate any feedback if you have the time!

Dark System Alpha Page

Dark System is a top down space shooter in an open galaxy to explore. It features fun, physics-based combat and meaningful progression. There are a ton of different ships and equipment to use, and different factions to battle against.

It is still a work in progress so some things aren't done yet, and other things are barely even started (like the story). Everybody that has played it so far has said it is a lot of fun though. Let me know what you think of the game, or if you have any questions for me!
