Hey folks,

Starting today you can download a Pre Alpha demo build of Angular Velocity! Be advised that there is a lot of functionality missing. For example, you only have 1 schematic you can craft, there is no multiplayer yet, and limited weapons, ships, and resources.

Having said all that, it’s important for us to start testing the core of the game across multiple systems, as well as working the bugs out of our custom update software.

System Requirements

  • Java 7 ( You can download it here )
  • OpenGL Compatible Video Driver ( Tested on ATI Radeon 9750 )
  • OpenAL Compatible Audio Driver
  • PC, Max, or Linux ( Tested on Windows 7 )
  • 100mb of Hard Drive Space
  • Minimum 4 gigabytes of RAM ( 8 gigabytes recommended )
