On Mar. 14, 2Bytes (CEO Ham Young-chul) released the first gameplay footage of Space Gears, being developed by its game studio, Pentapeak Studios, on their Steam page.
Space Gears is an SF strategy RTS game based on terraforming Mars. Players can experience a variety of ways to cooperate and compete for the resources of Mars.
The video showcases the game's game systems, including Lands, HQs, Mechs, and the combat system, featuring intense squad-based battles.
To overcome the limitations of previous RTS games, which have been characterized by difficult and complex controls and a high barrier to entry for new players, the complexity of simultaneous tasks was reduced, such as build orders, resource management, and base expansion, and made combat more intuitive. Players can enjoy immersive combat and strategy with multiple modes of PvE and PvP in an effort to make play easier and faster.
Space Gears is planned for release on Steam in Q3 of this year, with detailed game information and a testing schedule to be released in Q2. Game footage will be available on the game's Steam page and official YouTube channel.
"Space Gears is a collective effort of Korean developers who love the Sci-Fi genre and RTS games," said CEO Ham Young-chul. "We're working hard to bring it to strategy fans around the world on Steam, so please look forward to it."
Executive producer of Pentapeak Studios, Lee In-won said, “After a year of development, we are pleased to announce the game as a pre-alpha build. We’re working hard to complete it with over 30 passionate developers,” and added, “We are also recruiting members for Pentapeak Studios. We hope you keep an eye on this as well.”
Pentapeak Studios is an in-house game development studio founded by 2Bytes. The studio is currently developing Space Gears and the mobile puzzle and social game Stellar Tales. Founded by developers with experience in major Korean game companies such as Nexon, NCsoft, and Wemade, the studio pursues an autonomous and transparent development culture. In the future, Pentapeak Studios plans to develop and present games of complex genres that have not been attempted in Korea in recent years, targeting the global game market.
