Final Equinox: The Arrival is a Sci-Fi RPG for Linux, Mac and Windows. The crowdfunding campaign just launched on Kickstarter with a pledge goal of 30,000 USD. Running until July 1st 2018.
Final Equinox: The Arrival is a turn-based space combat Sci-Fi RPG game built on Unreal Engine 4. But also set in a unique and interesting universe. Where the player takes on the role of a new starship admiral. One whose fleet encounters a new enemy in deep space.
So gameplay takes place in a complex world full of different races. All in the midst of political upheaval.
While the rules and feel of the game hark back to the days of old-school role-playing games. Where combat is difficult and the game forces players into morally compromising situations.
Final Equinox: The Arrival has a unique combat system which will affect the dialogue choices of the player as well as the stats of the ships. So throughout the game, the player will be able to rearrange his crew members in different positions. Which will also affect the ship’s movement and firepower as well as other special abilities.
Since this system is fundamental to the overall feel of the game. Crew members became very important as they gain experience and increase their skills. So if a ship is lost in combat, the player is not able to get the crew on that ship back.
