About BossConstructor: Scavenge modules, combine them in the deadliest and most efficient ways imaginable, and fly your very own spaceship through alien space with BossConstructor. Thousands of procedurally generated galaxies await you and your space-faring collection of assembled modules to explore them.

Building your Ship: The core feature of the game is its ship editor which allows you to freely assemble your own spaceships using a vast variety of modules (currently more than 60). The way you build your ships determines how they behave and what they are capable of doing. Since every module costs money, weight and energy, designing a good ship is a challenging yet rewarding task.

Expedition and Sandbox Mode: The expedition mode lets you explore a procedurally generated galaxy inhabited by the von-Neumann, an evolving AI species. You begin with a small basic ship and advance as you complete missions, discover new enemy species and scavenge for more powerful components to improve your ship. Alternatively, build any ship you like without constraints in the sandbox mode.

Artificial Intelligence: Being a single player game, a lot of attention is given to the game’s artificial intelligence system. The von-Neumann enemies you encounter in the expedition mode are created using elaborate artificial evolutions, in which a vast number of mutating ships have competed for survival. Several bonus game modes allow you to lean back and watch how different AI species compete with each other for survival.

    • I will publish the game at gog, desura, shinyloot and other places once the game is more polished.
      At the moment, I like to develop fast and publish many patches and deploying to many platforms at once would consume a lot of time.

  1. Hi,

    the pistons currently are “locked” to a distance of 4 squares. Are there plans to make them more flexible? F.e., the distance between two pistons facing each other could be used to define the distance (rather than a fixed distance of 4)
