Description

Nimbatus - The Space Drone Constructor is an action-packed simulation game. Craft drones out of hundreds of different parts and explore a destructible, procedurally generated galaxy. Build autonomous drones to fight against other players' creations. Do you have what it takes to become a drone engineer?

History

Micha Stettler, co-founder of Stray Fawn Studio and original creator of Nimbatus, started working on the game four years ago, while also maintaining a full-time job. The game’s development has taken quite a few unexpected turns. One of them being the switch from a first person 3D experience to a 2D side-view game. To bring out the game’s full potential, Micha decided to leave his job and founded his own indie studio to fully commit to game development.

Features

  • Create your own drones out of countless parts and based on real physics.
  • Explore a procedurally generated galaxy with fully destructible planets.
  • Control your drones on various missions on different planets.
  • Build autonomous drones using sensor and logic parts and let them fight against other players' creations in the arena.
  • Collect a variety of resources and use them to craft powerful weapons.
