Congrats to the Latest Greenlight Spacey Games

3 - My New Name. Dangerous.
Welcome to Steam, Dangerous!

Steam just released it’s latest batch of Greenlit games, and there’s some spacey game goodness in there, including:

  • Cosmonautica – A fun FTL-like game. We’ll have the developer of the game on our podcast next week, so stay tuned!
  • Dangerous – Yaaaay! I love this open-universe combat/trading/exploration game, and even said so in my review, so I’m thrilled to see it get what will hopefully be a ton more attention. Would y’all like to see me revisit it in some videos?
  • Naev – This is a very fun, Escape Velocity type game thing that I enjoyed the last time I played, which was a while ago.

Congrats to these and all of the developers on the list who will now find their games on Steam. :)

  1. I clicked through on Dangerous. First screenshot I saw had a station model that appears to be lifted directly from Evochron: Mercenary. Kinda suspicious, unless StarWraith licensed away some of its models.

    1. It’s all this guy’s fault. ;) Actually I’m recalling asking about that to a dev, and they said there’s something of a pool of general use models that devs can use for their games out there somewhere, I think.

  2. Thanks, Brian! I really appreciate the mention and the previous review. As for the station models, Dangerous and a number of other spacey games license the same ones from 3drt.com. We do have unique custom-crafted models such as the stargates, some ships, and we are slowly replacing the stock ones with unique models when the revenues permit.

    Here’s a WIP (work in progress) video which shows the hugely improved visuals including 3D asteroid fields (50,000+ individual objects), tessellated planet surfaces, and more:

    The current game is complete and very playable (20+ hours easily), but we’re also planning to add a first-person shooter element where you can also take over ships in first-person. We’ll release via Steam Early Access. Look for Dangerous on the Steam store soon. :)

Chime In!
