Description

HYPERTEC is a voxel style dogfighter, where you control a spaceship with modular components! You can attach unique weapons and engines that you collect from enemies, improving your ship as you go. The weapons are procedurally generated from a selection of different pieces, allowing for over 240 different weapons! You will be completing quests for you chosen faction, and eventually claiming the sector as your own.

History

HYPERTEC was pitched originally as a submission for a team project in university - the main aspects of interest being team formation and role allocation, while also building a strong portfolio piece that could show off a more ambitious title. It has come a long way since then and there are lots more planned features, waiting on the sidelines.

Features

  • Over 240 combinations for the modular weapons, with stats reflective of the faction it belongs to.
  • Voxel graphics!
  • Equipping different guns to each side of the ship, creating even more possible combinations
  • Quests to complete!
  • Flight controls that are easy to get started with, but hard to master
