Third arena available after initial release

The third arena of Math Combat Challenge will be settled on the surface and the forsaken base of the Titan moon (Saturn). While the mechanics will be similar to the Stadium Arena, new surprises will be added to this area.

This arena will be free and available after the initial release.

Starting beta testing very soon

We´re almost ready to begin beta testing. We have a small and enthusiastic group of people who share their love for First Person Shooters and Space Simulators. Remember: this game offers both: the Stadium Arena, and the Saturn Asteroids Arena. Three New Arenas will be included after the initial release at no cost.

Math Combat Challenge: the story behind

Math Combat Challenge (MC2) is a videogame in development for PC and Mac inspired by the novel “Messenger of the Náströnd”, and settled in 2156, three years after the previous novel. It´s an indie game developed by a very small team.

This video shows some elements of the novel and the game, with the voice of the main character, Sandra Kimmel.

Sandra is an android, who has been active for 106 years. Her mission is to travel to Titan, to investigate a plot by a drug cartel that has kidnapped a man. There she´ll see that things were not as simple as when they informed her.

The game will be Oculus Rift compatible.

TrackIR coming to Math Combat Challenge

We have just signed an agreement with NaturalPoint, the company behind TrackIr 5 PRO. This will allow us to integrate this hardware win Math Combat Challenge.

But what is TrackIR? It´s a device that is placed on top of the monitor. This system sends an infrared signal to a receiver, which can be located on the user or on the headset. Thanks to this system, TrackIR can triangulate the position of the head and its movements, and reflect this movement in the simulator.

This system is flexible and parameterizable, and is used by thousands of pilots of different simulators every day. It is a device that becomes essential for pilots of air and space simulators, and also in other simulators of cars, motorcycles, etc.

TrackIR integration will be available as soon as Math Combat Challenge becomes available. And remember: it will also be integrated with Oculus Rift, so you´ll always find a way to control your vision in the game.

Oculus Rift coming to Math Combat Challenge

We´ve been testing the space arena of the game with the Oculus Rift this week, and the results sound very promising. So we can say now that the first release of Math Combat Challenge will be Oculus Rift compatible, with more hardware coming soon.

Using a videogame with a good monitor is important, but the Oculus Rift is just a quantum leap ahead of what we have seen before. Its immersion is just incredible, as it is like being there in the space. We do recommend the Oculus Rift, or at least try the glasses. Amazing.

Messenger of the Náströnd. Chapter III

Spanish version here.

The hotel door opened. Martin pointed with his phaser to the figure that came in. There was no need to shoot. It was Sandra, who looked at him indifferently, as she connected the computer in the room and examined something. After a few seconds, Martin commented:

“How was the meeting with … those friends “? Sandra, without turning, replied:

-All right. I’m going to work for them.”

“You can’t do that, Sandra.”

“Why not?”

“You’re going to have to kill some people. Your programming …”

The new laser minigun is ready

Do they outnumber you? Short of fuel or defenses? Have you exhausted your energy for the system of concealment?

No problem. The new Titan Deep Space Company’s minigun laser has been designed to kill any light or medium target with one or two bursts. Aim, shoot, and continue with your work. And this week, two free loads with the purchase of a complete system.

Dogfight video test

This a test of a dogfight against two Antares fighters. Not so heavily armed like the Vega Fighter, the Antares normally attacks in pairs, combining their firepower. Be careful, they can flank you at any moment. You can see inside the cockpit a very simple math operation for tests. Activate sound if you want to hear the doppler effect from the enemy fighters. Of course there´s no air in space, but who matters, this is a game.

At the end the idea was to solve a very simple math panel, but an asteroid had another idea. We promise that was not intended. It´s the way the game works.
