[Update: Greenlit] Stuck In Greenlight Limbo: Wormhole Ventures

Wormhole Ventures

This time the spotlight will be shining on Wormhole Ventures, a strategic outer space experience with a strong focus on economics, and… well, wormholes! What say we help it escape the cold emptiness of Greenlight limbo?

You are a leading representative for your corporation and have been granted a charter to travel to a newly opened anchor station. The possibilities for elevating the financial, and political status of your corporation are incalculable. Hopefully, you have what it takes… You most likely are not the only corporation given such a charter.

Ah, I do love the smell of intergalactic drama in the morning, and with a wealth of AI corporations to go up against, chances are there’ll be plenty of that in Wormhole Ventures. In its current state, as noted on the Greenlight page, that is unfortunately also all there is to it – no single player campaign / scenarios. Same goes for multiplayer, although both will be added, once the game has made it through the system and onto Steam. Trading, gambling, tech trees, a handful of resource types and different map sizes, to name but a few, are however all present and accounted for. So basically, while more than a concept, still also less than a complete product. Even so, unfinished or not, its board game-ish design does have a certain appeal, so hopefully the gameplay will be able to match the visual design. We’ll see.

So riddle me this, dear reader: why is Wormhole Ventures still struggling to get through Greenlight? It’s not out just yet, but will be upon achieving greenlit status, and a single player demo is readily available. As such, how about visiting its Greenlight page and handing over a ‘yes’ if you like what you see? Remember: your vote matters! It really does.
