Zodiac Page

Post by BasiliskWrangler » October 25th, 2016, 9:28 pm

I've set up a Facebook page for Zodiac and the Marauders of Sol. If you use Facebook, I'd super appreciate it if you gave it a like and shared it! Thanks!! :D

I will always update our forums and the Basilisk / Zodiac websites with the latest news, but most newsworthy items will likely go up on Facebook, Twitter, and (eventually) Steam first. It's just the nature of game promotion nowadays- we really need to push the public social media angle pretty hard to get noticed.

Can you name a game that is visually and/or gameplay wise similiar to Zodiac and the Marauders of Sol?

Honestly, I feel like Zodiac is fairly unique. Having said that, when the trailer is released, someone, somewhere, will likely say "oh that looks/plays a lot like [insert game that BW never heard of]" so I can't say it's truly unique since I can't possibly know every game.

Soldak Entertainment made a game a few years ago called "Drox Operative", which they called a "starship action RPG". Zodiac is viewed in a similar top-down fashion, and there might be some very minor shared gameplay elements, but Zodiac is an entirely different game than Drox in practically every other way. Drox is very tactical in nature. Zodiac feels more story centric, advancing via exploration and mission achievements, wrapped around an action game core with full Newtonian physics.

I only played the demo. It was a bit daunting, but really in a good way, if you enjoy games like that.

Like with Eschalon, I want Zodiac to be a game that anyone can easily slip into, discovering the story and game mechanics as they go. I don't like games with steep learning curves. I think anyone who deeply played Eschalon will feel a similarity with Zodiac, despite the differences in the games. Really, whether it's a spaceship or a adventurer, it's still about exploring, completing objectives, and building up your avatar to deal with ever aggressive enemies.

Gave you a like and following.

Did not share though. My friends wouldn;t be into it.
I gave them all the Eschalon trilogy when it was on sale. None of them touched it :cry:
