Ecliptic is set in a world where people have travelled to the far reaches of the solar system and set up colonies there. As you travel through the emptiness of space, waylaid by pirates, planets will form alliances and go to war.
During space travel you will have nine planets to travel to in a randomly generated solar system. The game simulates Newtonian physics while you manoeuvre your ship by controlling all 6 engines separately (can be difficult).
If you are attacked by pirates or get involved in a war, you will have to fight the enemy ships with added controls for your gun and shield.
Turn Based Combat
If an enemy ship moves close enough to you, they will board your ship and a turn based battle in zero-g will commence. Turn based combat can also occur on planets if you get caught committing a crime or get mugged.
When on a planet (or moon of a gas giant) you can walk between buildings on a randomly generated map in order to;
- buy, sell or steal from the market,
- accept missions,
- upgrade your ship,
- train new crew members,
- and more...
The game will auto save at various points on a planet, so be careful with your decisions.
