Uranus

Overview

Uranus is a space exploration game that will put you in control of your very own spaceship. Build a ship configuration that is right for you, then blast off exploring for treasures in the vast unknown regions of space.

Uranus is currently very early in development. It is being written using the XNA framework.

Land Generator Progress

Land is created via a perlin noise generator, and portions are written to disk as you explore new areas. This allows for infinite world sizes.
