Build spaceships with your friends, and engage in intense combat inside and outside of your ship!

        Design your ship with an array of objects and materials or customize a pre-built design.

        Place cannons on your ship to unleash a barrage of lasers!
  • ⚊ Player Combat
        Battle your friends inside and outside of your creations.
  • ⚊ Player Controlled and Auto-Pilot Flight
        Roam your ship while another player navigates or set to auto-pilot and watch the stars drift past!
  • ⚊ Docking
        Land smaller ships inside larger ones and bring your fleet of fighters with you.
  • ⚊ Teleportation
        Sneak onto an enemy ship or return to your own by teleporting.

Why Steam Early Access?
“Starbucket will benefit from an active community, as feedback from the players helps shape the level of fun and excitement it will provide. As a create-and-share style game, it will need constant testing and suggestions to make sure it is the best possible experience.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?
“It will be an extended development and the length is uncertain; however most of the core features are in place and they will be expanded upon based on player feedback during the Early Access period.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?
“The ability to design ships and engage in combat with friends is the core purpose of Starbucket. This system is in place and playable now, but needs polishing. The goal of the full version is an expansive universe in which to explore these player-created and randomly spawned ships, and to collect objects and materials along the way to upgrade the player’s creations.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?
“Starbucket currently contains a fun combination of ship-building tools and ship-destroying tools! Here is what to expect in Early Access:
– Build small fighters or large capital ships with an intuitive Hull tool
– Layout floor tiles and several interactive objects such as laser cannons, power conduits, elevators and teleporter pads
– Collect materials from crates on each ship for more design options
– Play with your Steam friends online and explore the ships they’ve made… or destroy them
– Choose from a small list of pre-built ships and modify them, or create new ones from scratch
– Ships are saved outside of the current game file so they can be shared and re-loaded after your friends destroy them”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?
“The game will likely be priced up for the full version; however not by much. The benefit of purchasing Starbucket in Early Access is not to get it at a low price, but to be involved in the evolution of a great game, and to help it become the full experience we want to enjoy!”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?
“Communication will be key to achieving the ultimate goal of a fun game. We will have an active presence in the Steam Community and we currently have a Reddit page and Discord where feedback and experiences can be shared. We are looking forward to seeing what the community does with Starbucket!”
