Description [fr]

Un simulateur de vaisseau spatial transportant le joueur et son équipage aux confins de l'univers vers une mission pour trouver une mystérieuse colonie perdue, par le studio Leafy Games.
Il utilise le moteur Unity.

PULSAR est un simulateur de vaisseau spatial mono (IA) et multijoueur (jusqu'à 5 en ligne), transportant le joueur et son équipage aux confins de l'univers vers une mission pour trouver une mystérieuse colonie perdue

PULSAR est un simulateur de vaisseau spatial en coopération qui vous transportera et votre équipage aux confins de l'univers vers une mission pour trouver la mystérieuse colonie perdue. Il dispose d'un générateur procédural de galaxie de sorte que chaque voyage sera unique et comprendra de nouveaux défis pour vous et votre équipage.
Le jeu a été conçu dès le départ pour offrir une expérience étonnante multijoueur en coopération (jusqu'à cinq joueurs en ligne), mais il est tout à fait possible de jouer hors ligne avec des bots pour équipage.

Description [en]

PULSAR is a cooperative starship simulator that takes you and your crew to the farthest corners of the universe on a mission to find the mysterious Lost Colony. It features a procedural galaxy generator so every journey will be unique and contain new challenges for you and your crew.

The game has been designed from the ground up to provide an amazing cooperative multiplayer experience (up to five players), although it is entirely possible to play offline with bots as your crew.

Game Info

Your Own Galaxy to Explore And Conquer
At the start of every Voyage a unique randomized galaxy is born just for you. Each contains hundreds of points of interest that you will need to explore to find clues about the location of the Lost Colony. A Voyage can last anywhere from 30 seconds to 30 hours depending on the skill of the crew and the encounters you face. If your crew perishes, the galaxy dies with you and the save file is deleted.

Journey Alone or With Friends
Each crew in PULSAR consists of up to five members. You can play offline with bots as your crew, or play cooperatively with friends in Online + LAN modes. Alternatively, you could take a ship out by yourself and perform all tasks of the crew, although it's quite a challenge!

Everyone Plays a Key Role on the Ship
Captain, Pilot, Scientist, Weapons, and Engineer. These are the five classes available in the game - each having their own unique responsibilities and roles during the journey. More info about the classes is available here.

Crew Permadeath
If your crew perishes on their journey (and your on-board respawner is destroyed) there is no coming back. This means if your ship is obliterated and your entire crew is on-board it's game over. The game will delete your save file and you get to start over at the beginning. This adds a layer of strategy that we absolutely love - plus it makes each journey special.

Join The Away Team
Your Voyage will bring you to unexplored sectors containing planets or space stations that can contain valuable resources imperative to surviving your journey. Use extreme caution as they also can also contain dangers to your crew - such as hostile ambushes and booby traps.

Five Unique Playable Factions (So Far)
The Colonists are unlocked by default. The other factions will need to be earned by playing the game and discovering the secret of each faction. You can play as anything from a ruthless weapons manufacturer such as the W.D. Corporation to an intergalactic biscuit delivery service: The Fluffy Biscuit Company.

Online Leaderboards
We are working on an extensive online profile system which will track and analyze each of your journeys, to see how you are improving compared to other explorers.

Challenge Modes
PULSAR features multiple challenge modes for players who love to die. The Captain's Challenge puts players in the Captain's chair without any crew. That's right! You and you alone will face the adventure ahead with your own personal starship (meant for a crew of five). You can do it!
