Dog Eat Dog Games has announced that Stellar will be heading into a closed beta next month.
What is Stellar?
Stellar drops you into the middle of a huge, procedurally generated universe with one goal: to blow stuff up.
As you explore, you’ll come across hundreds of worlds inhabited by different alien races, each with their own unique weapons and spaceships. Defeating these enemy fleets will allow you to assimilate their ships and weapons, Borg style, growing more powerful as you take out civilization after civilization. Pew pew pew.
Can I see some gameplay?
If you watched that, you’ll notice one of Stellar‘s most interesting gameplay hooks: the ability to shift back and forth from a 2D to a 3D view.
When is it out?
The game will enter a closed beta in May.
In the meantime, Dog Eat Dog Games is currently raising funds on Kickstarter to add additional content, including an improved user interface and more music. Most excitingly though is a $40,000 stretch goal for Oculus Rift and Samsung VR support.
