Stars in Shadow: Yoral Design Thumbnails by AriochIV Stars in Shadow: Yoral Design Thumbnails by AriochIV
Design sketches for the Stars in Shadow game project.

The Yoral are relative newcomers on the galactic stage. The survivors of a climactic shift that blanketed their homeworld in ice several thousand years ago, the Yoral have proven surprisingly adaptable. Though their technology is comparatively primitive, it is extraordinarily durable, and their settlers will happily colonize worlds considered marginal or even uninhabitable by most 'civilized' races. Blunt and direct, the Yoral could be stubborn enemies or steadfast allies -- but they clearly have little patience for politicking of any sort.

I'm thinking, does not this game needs someone to help with localizations/texts?

Possibly, but I think it will be some months at least before we get to that stage.

Oh and I have to add, I gotta agree with jonberry. These do remind me of the Somtaaw. Mostly because of the symmetrical construction, the way the engine exhausts are positioned - both of which reminds me most of the Somtaaw's carriers and dreadnaughts. Especially the dreadnaughts.

Nice. Your description of their personalities fit s their ship design as well. The ice world colors seem to doing a real nice job as well as the blocker construction.

Very much like MOO II and friends then, which is perfect.  I'll try to hold off on more game play related questions until the game is officially announced!

Another great fleet; I am in awe of your ability to spin out a whole fleet with consistent visual cues and style, all from the one little thumbnail we saw initially.  I like these guys in particular, great brute-force feel.  

In terms of future game play, do players design their own ships or are they fixed?

Thanks, I appreciate the compliment.

The game does currently have a ship designer screen in which the player can create his or her own classes. There are a fixed set of hulls to choose from for each race (each unlocked with certain technologies), but each hull has slots for weapons and other systems that can be filled by the player (and upgraded with newer systems as they become available).
