Description

Manage your Space agency and take control of your own Satellite fleet! Satellite Command gives you full control of your own satellites allowing you to explore Space and Earth’s orbit in realistic eye watering detail. Plan orbits, launch satellites, manage resources, complete missions, modify spacecraft and experience the beauties of Space at your own pace. Expand your fleet of spacecraft and take control of each satellite and ensure they stay operational. Improve satellite components to make them more durable, more powerful and more advanced. Inspired by work with experts within the Space industry, Satellite Command represents what the satellite industry may look like in 5 years. Missions include removing dangerous debris from orbit, monitoring deep space, taking photos of Earth, spot passing comets, helping map the Moon and communicating with Earth stations. With a Tech Tree which is different on every new game, you can research and upgrade your Satellite to be more accurate and powerful than before. Satellite Command pushes the boundaries of graphic fidelity, with 4K support and smooth performance going hand in hand. Developed in Unreal Engine 4 Satellite Command takes advantage of some of most up to date technologies allowing for high quality graphics and mechanics without compromising on performance.

History

During our time at Falmouth University working on our degrees we had the opportunity to work with Goonhilly Earth Station, a world renowned satellite communication centre known for receiving the first ever transatlantic signal. During this time we worked to create a visual representation of Earth orbits to help young children learn about the complexities of space. The final model contained a powerful engine with modifiable orbits that users could control. Once our degrees and time with Goonhilly ended we decided to use what we had learnt to form the basis of a new game called Satellite Command.

Features

  • Realistic simulation of orbit physics
  • Resource management of satellites
  • Hundreds of missions to complete, each viewable in a catalogue
  • Tech tree that changes on every playthrough.
  • Achievement and Leaderboard integration, as well as 4K support
