Titan, third arena in Math Combat Challenge

We´re now working hard on the third arena of the game: Titan. This arena will be accesible after winning the other arenas: the Stadium Arena and the Asteroid Arena. This one will have its own group of surprises, and will include the lake Kraken and a forgotten base. We hope to show the first video very soon.

Owl drone and the minigun

We continue working with the beta, while we bring another image of the Stadium Arena. Here you can see the minigun and the drone owl. Both can be invoked when things get complicated, and both will act for a while before temporarily deactivating.

The minigun will attack some of the surface targets, but not all. The drone owl will in turn attack the enemy combat ships. They can be very important when you´re out of weapons or when you need to solve new math problems to avoid losing the game.

Cockpit in combat mode (Asteroid Arena)

This is the cockpit in combat mode for the Titan Asteroid Arena. In this mode the radar tracks enemy fighters and other ships, and weapons are completely active, even the Electromagnetic Pulse Missile (EMP).

Math Combat Challenge will be compatible with keyboard & mouse, console pads, TrackIR, and Oculus Rift.

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.

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.

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.

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.
