Galactic ArtifactJanuary 9, 2009
Trevor Bradley has been working on an impressive looking game for the Pandora. He describes it as a noncombat, real time space exploration game. The goal of the game is to find a hidden prize artifact in a galaxy of 40,000,000 stars, which is divided into 10,000,000 sectors of space before your friend does. Sound impossible? Well, apparently it isn’t. You explore the various sections of space looking for different artifacts, then selling them to aliens who will either give you cash to upgrade your ship, or information about the location of the prize artifact. As you collect this information, you rule out large sections of space until you’re left with a small area to easily find the prize.
Currently, he’s trying to clean up the code enough so it’ll run at a decent frame rate on the Pandora, however if he’s unable to he says he might just release it for the PC. Either way, this will be a very cool game!

UPDATE: You can now download a pre-alpha binary from here (Windows/Linux)
Note: This is not a complete version, so expect some bugs. Also, Trevor would like to keep this within the community, so don’t redistribute it. Be sure to read his post before you download.
