A New Beginning

Get ready, Axonauts! The Early Access Patch #11 Has Landed! (v0.11.0)

I’ve poured my heart and soul into Moons of Ardan’s latest patch for months, and the day is finally here! I am thrilled to release the latest major patch (v0.11.0), packed with features that will make your city-building adventures even more awesome.

Let’s dive in!

New Mission System:

  • Feeling lost in the vastness of space? No worries! I’ve got you covered with a brand new mission system featuring 32 missions, including 23 guided tutorials. These will help you get your bearings, learn the ropes, and become a master Ardan colonist in no time!

Deeper Lore Integration:

  • Get ready to deepen your connection to the Moons of Ardan universe! I’ve woven new stories into the missions, immersing you in the narrative and keeping you hooked on your citizens’ destiny.

Non-Linear Progression:

  • I know the previous linear system felt restrictive, and I always wanted you to forge your path! The new tech tree boasts over 65 technologies and 6 science types, allowing you to choose your development path and build thriving lunar colonies that reflect your playstyle.

New axopedia:

  • The new axopedia is a valuable resource for both new and experienced players. It is a comprehensive encyclopedia that allows you to review all information distilled through the game and is a wealth of knowledge about the game. You can now browse the axopedia at your own pace and learn about the game at your convenience.
  • Previously, only the tutorials were reviewable. This meant that I had to put all hints into that system, and it was most of the time badly timed. Now, with the hint section you can review the core of what I would have told you if I had backseat you :D

But wait, there’s more!

Whether you’re a seasoned veteran or a curious newcomer, this is the perfect time to join the adventure! Jump in, explore the exciting possibilities, and become a part of the thriving Ardan community.

Anyway, thank you for your support!
