Welcome To The Future
First thing I thought of when I read the tile and a brief description of the game, which described it as a delivery guy in the year 2500 was Futurama. Theirs no website as he seems to be using social media and the only one I can see is the Twitter feed https://twitter.com/MoonmenGames
the game is set in our solar system and you get around the different planets by jumpgate as you can see from the vids. you will also be able to get out of the ship and walk around the city's or use your jetpack.
From the vids the game looks to be going well but it may just be a number of different levels at the moment, but it looks like it will be worth keeping an eye on it progression. Check his YouTube channel as their are a number of vids exploring different aspects of the game.
Very short vid showing some cap ship jumping in.
New vid showing some new space effects and multi ship.
Some more test footage, looks like it's shaping up pretty good.
Can't believe I haven't seen this game before until now.... it just shows that there is a lot here and out there. This actually looking very promising. I really like the visuals and i really like the weather effects on the planet and the fact you can actually see them when your flying is a nice touch.
The planets are big, I think a concern is how are they going to make the planets or the communities on them seem active and not boring 🙂
Noticed that they now have a website https://moonmengames.com/#home not much on it, but hopefully we will see more from then over the rest of the year.
New vid showing some combat.
I like the pace of the combat and the effects look good too. This game just keeps surprising, they should get this on steam to generate a bit more hype.
Vid about NPC chat, looking really good hope this get's released at some point.
This just looking better all the time, just hope theirs a game there and not just bits.
The game is looking good, they must be in good shape as a company because they have yet to put it in to early access on Steam. Putting this in early access would expose them to making a little money while they continue development. It says they been working on it for over 4yrs now so they are dedicated in to getting out there to the masses. Only time will tell but these videos of the gameplay definitely look good and the movements of the pilot and ship I think are really good so far.
Video on character creation, but no sign of a release date yet.
Nice video showing the system map, Games looking good just hope all the bits hang together.
Another short vid about space pirates and new UI.
Very short but an awesome video.
Wow, that city looks great and it looks smooth. I don't need incredible detail like I see in SC this looks just fine... will be nice to see what interactions we might be able to do with a cityscape like this?
expect to see more in depth city interaction in the future but the plan is you will be able fly and walk around the city and interact with all of the npc's. Some of the npc's will have a deeper dialogue resulting in possible quests/events.
Very nice, your building something nice here and to see your inserting immersion into the game is definitely a plus. Looking forward to seeing more on this once you have more of this in the game.
Also I always encourage game developers to participate here or if you want I can give you your own forum area where you can post anything you want game related. This community here is your primary audience so we all wish you success and will try to help out if we can. So if you want a forum area here just let me know and I will create it for you.
To answer your question about city interaction, expect to see more in depth city interaction in the future but the plan is you will be able fly and walk around the city and interact with all of the npc's.
Something like Scrapland, I think!!

Welcome aboard, Marc!!! I am looking forward for your game!!
@CaptainKal Didn't know about that game, but i'll definitely check it out.
Well, it's a gta lite with robots, in a futuristic city, if that makes any sense!!!! I do not know if you can find it digitally, or you have to hunt down copies in ebay. But I will provide you a couple of links, for game play videos and reviews!

It's done Marc, the forum for Welcome to the Future is located here: http://spacesimcentral.com/community/welcome-to-the-future/
SSC welcomes the dev team to the station, and looking forward to watching WttF evolve and I hope any of our feedback can help in producing something great. Use the forum area as you like to show off and promote WttF. And if you want me to change any of the description that I added to the forum area just let me know 🙂
Good luck @marc
You have an interesting premise and if I got it correctly it will be interplanetary based within our own system yes? I like that for some reason, perhaps because it's more plausible. I'll be watching this, color me very interested.
I really like the city vid as it's one aspect of these games which has never really being done and many of the open world space type games could benefit from having some city in them, NMS being a good example of that. the only other games which I can think of, off hand are Star Citizen and the forth coming Beyond Good and Evil 2 which have large city's in them.
Back to the game I would like to see a longer video, maybe a play though of a mission if you are at that stage of the development.
Game get a new trailer and a Steam page and the usual TBA for a date but as they say in Futurrama "take my money"
Nice trailer showing off what they been doing over the past year. From features standpoint it is doing a lot of what SC/NMS is doing but with a different art style. I like what I am seeing to this point and knowing you can get out of the ship and explore (with a jetpack even) increases the amount of gameplay.
