Each week, we scour the internet for all things indie MMO-related so you don't have to. This week, I worked really hard to find all of the good news I could, but I won't apologize if some bad news found its way in as well. Honestly, though, indie devs need all the attention they can get, and I hope you all find the IMS to be a portal to the indie MMOs you love (or might end up loving). Anyway, let's quit wasting time and get started with this week's Indie MMO Spotlight.
Each week, we scour the internet for all things indie MMO-related so you don't have to. It seems everyone has settled into 2022, and after the flurry of roadmap reveals and major announcements we had in January and February, March is starting off a bit more muffled. There may not be a bunch of major announcements this week, but there's still a lot of activity going on in the indie MMO space, so let's quit wasting time and get started with this week's Indie MMO Spotlight.
The voxel-based space MMO Starbase has fallen a little behind schedule with some key features lately. Developer Frozenbyte doesn't want players to worry too much, so they released a roadmap detailing what has been delayed, and when players might see those features in game.
Starbase has received an update, dubbed EA Build 550, bringing several improvements and additions to crafting, audio, research, and more.
The summer months of gaming can be a quiet time; apparently, indie developers didn't get the memo. Between MMOs that just launched and others with impending alphas and betas, there's been plenty to cover in the Indie MMO Spotlight. With temperatures soaring as we enter the dog days of summer, there's no better time than the present to check out some of the indie gems we have in this week's Spotlight.
This week there was a lot in the Indie MMO scene, and Mitch is here to break down some of the goings on with the smaller MMOs out there.
The Starbase team have shared progress notes, specifically pointing to updates on developments of stations and cities. Here's what they had to share.
