Ganesha Games has quite a few exciting projects lined up for 2017. One of them is our space fighter game called STAR EAGLES. This is an open source game that will allow you to design and fight battles with any star fighter you can think of or even from movie or TV series. When the game is released, we will also include suggested profiles for some of the more well known pop culture ships. However, Ganesha will also have our own background and universe for STAR EAGLES.
Our Alien antagonists are named the S’Sekai and have very evolved cybernetic, robotic, and genetic engineering technology. Their ships have a somewhat organic feel to them and are extremely agile.
I have completed printing out all of the initial fighter designs so serious play testing can begin in a few weeks. I had a few minutes so I could not resist painting the S’Sekai medium and light Fighters as they are amongst my favourites. I thought I would share them here even though the game is a few months away. The paint job is very rough and both models where painted in about 45 minutes using a high contrast edging technique to just show off the contours and shape.
Keep in mind this are not the final high-resolution prints, but average quality home prints on a Zortrax printer. The actual miniatures will be high definition models cast in urethane resin. The choice for resin is for three reasons. 1) Some of the models are quite large and metal would make them very heavy. 2) we want to include a lot in the game, so we need to keep the shipping weight down. 3) the resin casting process is a bit more forgiving of undercut in the sculpting which allows us to keep the more complex designs single pieces.
Here is another preview of the Space fighters Ganesha is working on for our STAR EAGLES, space fighter game. These are painted, low resolution prints used for playtesting. The real ones will have much sharper details. This project will be a Kickstarter we are targeting to launch around early March. I will be setting up another FB group for those who want to stay updated on the development of this new game.
