Nimbatus – The Space Drone Constructor is a two-dimensional arcade game with elements of simulation, in which we build our own space drones. This is the second project of a small Swiss band Stray Fawn Studio. The title Nimbatus is a technologically advanced mother ship, designed for remote execution of dangerous missions on planets encountered.
After starting the game, the player is in his own version of a procedurally generated galaxy. As commander of Nimbatus, he must go to other planets and design technologically advanced drones in order to carry out the available missions: from extracting resources, through the elimination of enemy robots' nests, to the destruction of the blocking signal transmitters. The pilot does not have to worry too much about the terrain, because the machine is able to freely create paths and bite into the environment like a hot knife in butter.
The game starts from the construction of the reconnaissance machine. To the central core we can attach a huge number of parts in any way without any restrictions. The constructor has at his disposal a mass of engines, weapons, mining lasers, shields, batteries and fuel tanks powering all the equipment. What's more, a series of sensors and processors can make it much easier to drive the drona or even make it stand alone.
In addition to missions on the planetary surfaces, players can also use a few additional modes, focused on fighting drones. For example, you can take part in a sumo match where the goal is to push the enemy vehicle out of the outlined wheel, and in the arena we will struggle against the waves of tenacious opponents, trying to survive as long as possible.
The game presents functional and detailed 2D graphics, whose main advantages are excellent looking effects of particles, laser light, explosions and other dynamic elements of the game. Attention can also be drawn to the physics system, which allows for realistic movements of individual elements of the ship and precise simulations of the behaviour of drones equipped with manoeuvring engines.
The project was financed by a campaign on Kickstarter, which ended on 5 December 2017.
