This is a fast, fun, blow-up-everything game inspired by the old arcade classic, Asteroids. It will eventually make its way to Windows, Mac, iOS, and Android. It's still in development, but is very playable now.

This isn't just a new game. It's also a new 3D rendering engine. The beta is filled with features to demonstrate abilities of the new engine; features that won't be in the final game obviously. At least 90% of the file size is for sample, demonstration models.

You will see, as fun as the game is, that it's lacking fresh, new things to keep you entertained. I want the player to choose levels, like in an Angry Birds game, and all levels are variations of the same-style game play. What I need is an idea that can be molded hundreds of times for new levels. This would be easy if it was Pacman; I'd just make new mazes. I'm not sure what to do in Asteroids though.

That brings me to you. If you think you have a great idea, lemme know. Something able to accommodate hundreds of levels, not just a few. I'm sure most people will be as stumped as I am, in which case, enjoy the beta, and have fun!
