Contested Space: Crafting EVE & LEGO into an Accessible Game

The Contested Space team has let us know that the game is now live on KickStarter and hoping to raise $26,000 by the end of May. The game will feature persistent real time aerial combat in a universe that is fully created by players. According to the lead developer,  Matthew Haralovich, the game combines building elements from LEGO and sandbox space MMO features ala EVE Online into a single, accessible world.

Contested Space will start small, perfect the features it has, and grow from there. The purpose of this campaign is to fund that first step. The goal is to launch a completed version of the game before the end of this year.

At first Contested Space will be about territory control. Players will pick from one of three predefined alliances. These alliances will compete to control locations in orbit where stations can be built. Players that defend or capture territory will be rewarded with credits that can be used to build space stations or buy better ships.

The game will launch with three different ship sizes along with a suite of weapons and abilities to go along with them. Players will have a skill progression that will grant them modest bonuses as they gain experience.

Check out the Contested Space KickStarter page for more information.
