Predestination adding 3D Ship Designer, donate via Kickstarter

The indie games studio Brain and Nerd is expanding their 4X Space game by adding a new innovative 3D Ship Designer that will allow players to attach new elements to a spacecraft and offer massive scope of expansion.

The second Kickstarter campaign was lauched because the first campaign didn’t reach the stretch goal (over-funding limit) set by the developers for this feature to be added.

Predestination - 3D Ship Designer - Indie Spring

“The initial plan for Predestination was to have a customisable ship design feature much like Master of Orion II’s ship design. We really wanted to extend this into a full modular 3D ship designer in which you could create unique designs and see the weapons or other add-ons you install.” – The devs.

The developers were also awarded a £10,000 grant by the Creative Industries Innovation Fund managed by the Arts Council of Northern Ireland. They however, need more funding to realize the full scope of their plans to expand the game.

Check out the game and help them out on Kickstarter.
