The Third Side (Battle for the Solar System, #2)

The White Knights have had their wings clipped. Shot down and stranded on a planet in independent space, the five pilots find themselves sitting directly in the path of the Pandoran war machine as it prepares to advance The Mission. But if they can somehow survive and find a way home, they might just discover something far more worrisome than that which destroyed an empire.

TBFTSS : The Pandoran War v1.0

Fri, 12th August 2016

I put the finishing touches to The Pandoran War this week, the game hitting v1.0. The game is now complete, with all the missions and features I wanted to put in, the campaign and challenges, as well as the trophies, all done. Downloads will be available from the dedicated Battle for the Solar System website, and the source code is all on GitHub. Future updates will now focus on bug fixes, and adding in missing translations (of which there will be plenty).

I decided after completing the game that I am largely done with creating games now. Over the past 16 years, I've made quite a few, and, while they were fun and challenges to put together, I think I've now done enough. I will be writing a Making Of post for the Pandoran War later in the year, where I'll discuss what went in and what didn't, and other such things.

This will be my last game, I believe; the open source gaming scene has changed considerbly in the past several years, and the once-thriving community has dwindled quite a lot, with gaming becoming more mobile orientated. As such, I decided while on holiday in Japan to have a crack at writing two fantasy novels, which I'll be talking about in another post.

The Pandoran War downloads will be available on 14th August.
