Among the latest projects to be featured on Collective, space-based RTS XO – from Jumpdrive Studios (based in Portland, Oregon, US) – challenges you to take control of a rag-tag fleet fleeing an overwhelming enemy in a procedurally-generated setting.
Inspired by Battlestar Galactica and FTL among others, you’ll find out if the choices you make – from rescuing survivors to gathering resources and dealing with political treachery – can save humanity… or doom it to destruction.
“We wanted to pitch XO to the Collective early in development and see how the community felt about our game so far,” said Corey Warning, co-founder of Jumpdrive. “We’re planning a crowdfunding campaign later this year, and this platform provides us with a unique opportunity to find our supporters and start a conversation.”
Square Enix Collective is a platform that aims to help independent developers find an audience for their projects, by enabling them to tap into our community and media resources. Projects which gamers support through the initial Feedback phase may be offered continued support through crowdfunding too; but developers are free to choose whether to accept, and always retain IP and complete creative control over their projects.
