About

Project::OSiRiON is a free space trading and combat simulation under development. Its goal is to create an immersive universe with open gameplay inspired by classic titles such as Elite, Privateer and Freelancer.

Join the game as a poor man with a small ship and try to get rich through trading or fighting. More credits buy bigger ships and more guns, enabling you to gathering your riches even faster.

Features

  • Available for Windows and Linux
  • Singleplayer, open gameplay mode
  • Multiplayer through a dedicated server
  • Open game universe with many starsystems to visit. Go wherever you want, whenever you want. The universe is defined in easy to edit ini files, server owners can run fully customized games.
  • Planets, starbases, starsystems and jumpgates. Larger ships have their own jumpdrives
  • Buyable ships ranging from small transports to large command carriers.
  • Commodity trading, equipable weapons, ejectable cargo.
  • NPC factions and player reputation, friendly and hostile NPCs.
  • Player owned carriers which can be docked by other players.
  • PvP dogfights.
  • Cheap graphics, it's a feature!
  • Physics support through the Bullet Physics library.
  • The engine and the game are written in C++ and are a work in progress.

Planned

  • Player-to-player trading.
  • Mercenary and trading missions.
  • Asteroids, nebula and an asteroid mining system with related industry.
  • Wingmen
  • The long term goal is to end up with a compelling singleplayer campaign. This requires a lot of missing features to be implemented and will therefor remain on the wishlist until the game itself is fully playable.
