Think of stepping back and looking at the element that makes Worbital, Worbital, and that basically, it all started: Cosmic chaos! Worbital is a real-time strategy game where players control their planets, build artillery and fire through the solar system in hopes of destroying enemy planets. Gravitational antics and explosions in abundance.
The idea is really taken from the previous game, Interplanetary, a realistic game of combat from planet to planet with a hard science fiction aesthetic. It was a long project, and in the end, everything was exhausted with the serious nature of the game. Can't we have a super-turbo laser and make a hole in that planet, causing a chain reaction that destroys the solar system? No, that would not be realistic.
Enter Worbital, the chaotic space artillery game where we could put anything we had previously held back on! Planet explosions, spaceships, collisions, black holes… Same premise, different perspective! You could call it “cathartic game development.”
