It is a bit dark but I think it gives the game a bit of atmosphere.
Yes undoubtly, the atmosphere is a great part of this game. Take a fire estinguisher and move around your ship with it... Had someone told me that years ago I would have moved him in a clinic...
It an impressive achievement given that you pretty much do the same as that recent StarCitizen video where you start in space and fly down to the planets surface then exit the ship.
Granted it not as pretty as SC and you can't have some else fly the ship.
Been a couple of updates to the dev branch and hopefully we will see them soon in the main game.
Another update on the Dev branch with in-progress work on the Combat Update!
This update adds a simple new weapon - a Repeating Blaster - which is an alternative for those who don't like the charging mechanic of the standard Blaster. You need to add it to the ships interior or start a fresh game to grab one off the wall.
More importantly - a new powerup! Defeating the Xeno Incinerator will give you a Fire Booster, which temporarily gives you the ability to shoot fireballs! (Currently very overpowered - have fun!)
Most importantly - a change to the animation system that is mostly behind the scenes. I moved Xeno animation from Scripts to the Engine, using a new "Component" system which I am going to use heavily in the future. For now, this change should lead to a higher framerate in combat, and much improved procedural animation quality.
Unfortunately this update took two weeks instead of one, but the new Component system is going to be super important to keeping the game optimized, so it was well worth the time!
Another update to the dev branch. http://steamcommunity.com/games/314230/announcements/detail/753618265608201439
Hey guys sorry this update is overdue but it's a good one! It gives a look at the Blaster Missiles as well as puts Xenos all over the planets!
As always, the Dev update is for in-progress work. The Xenos in particular are outrageously buggy right now - they will run away from you, start fights with each other (kind of cool actually!) and the balance is all out of wack. Also the missiles don't have a proper area-of-effect explosion yet - just the particle effects.
To use the Missiles, hold right-mouse-button and fire!
To try out this Dev update, go to Steam -> right click Rodina -> Properties -> Betas tab -> choose "Dev" from the dropdown
The combat update is nearing completion! Next up will be the Beta release and it'll contain a few more new enemies, lots of polish, and a surprise!
Hope we are going to see this in the main branch soon.
Nice to Rodina still going strong. https://steamcommunity.com/games/314230/announcements/detail/3369147113795750369
Rodina 1.3.4: Buildings Upgrade!
28 September - Raptormeat
The Xeno Bases in Rodina have received a major visual upgrade!
This update includes 2 major technical additions. A room-based fog system adds visual depth to the interiors, and will allow me to visualize future gameplay elements like atmosphere, smoke, and poison gas.
The walls are also now being procedurally decorated with the Wave Function Collapse Algorithm. This gives the interiors a more complex look and will allow for much more room variation!
Next update is going to be pure gameplay - a new enemy, bigger bases, more resources, and more!
Thanks for your support!

New update for the game https://steamcommunity.com/games/314230/announcements/detail/1691562403168703921 will have to check it out as I have not played the game for awhile.
Small update to the game https://steamcommunity.com/games/314230/announcements/detail/1730974047952936763 but good news is the vote have been counted and he going to start working on the planet renderer and generation in the game.
It not dead yet as he just popped up on YouTube for an up date on the game. Always thought this was a part time job did not realised or had forgotten he had work on it full time. Any how will be looking out the next vid about 1.5.
Seen that the game had updated over the weekend and it looks like better persistence has been added in.
Game got a small update a couple of days ago and he looks like he is working on patch 1.6
New update should be dropping soon and it sound pretty intriguing.
