  • CANCELLED! Subspace Continuum will not be available on all platforms starting today!

    Update: We are extremely sad to announce that even though we'd all wish it were true that our little game would be playable on more platforms and have a cryptocurrency supporting its development, it is not the right time and we don't have the resources. Thank you all for your continued interest in this game nevertheless and we will see you in the Trenches!

    April Fools 2021 Team



    We are extremely pleased to announce that Subspace Continuum is being ported to all platforms, including web, Android, iOS, Mac and Linux. Increasingly, mobile gaming platforms represent the future of user experiences. In order to capitalize on this, we have made some changes to maximize compatibility.

    For those who are familiar with .IO games, this new graphics package (WIP) will seem very familiar. We hope you enjoy this fresh, dynamic approach to Subspace, which can be played on a modern gaming PC ... or a literal refrigerator!

    The second change we'd like to unveil is even more exciting. Securing funding for a volunteer-run game has always been challenging. Our days of worrying about server costs are over. Introducing: PriitKoin!

    Every kill you make, every game you win, you will now earn PriitKoin, a freshly-minted Ethereum token powering the Subspace2.0 blockchain network. Subspace2.0 will store all in-game player data in preparation for the new Continuum client, and will allow players to securely store and trade in-game items like nametags, squad names, and graphics (new client only). This change is expected to bring in potentially thousands of new crypto-savvy players.

    In exchange for a small amount of your idle GPU power, all players will be able to earn PriitKoin [PTK] while they play. As the value of the token increases, we all benefit! We are currently working with a number of popular exchanges to host the PriitKoin token, and will have more details on our anticipated ICO date soon. Once hosted, your PubBux will carry real-world value as PriitKoin and can be exchanged for other cryptocurrencies.

    Thank you for your patience as we bring Subspace into the modern era. This will mean a lot of change in the coming months, but we know you're as excited as we all are. If you have questions, please don't hesitate to use ?help to reach out to online moderators. We're here for you!

          APRIL FOOLS.....

          I'm skeptical we have the developers and skillsets to develop cross platform and the crypto knowledge to build a blockchain from scratch. That's pretty hard even for a talented 10 person dev team so I'm not buying it....

          BUT IT'D BE NICE IF IT WERE GONNA HAPPEN

            some of this is already true, or not that far off from being true...

            subspace already works on mac and linux for example, and there have been working web and android versions in the past, or at least work has been done and that work could actually be finished relatively fast if people were interested.

            yeah, not buying the whole priitkoin thing...

              Funny, but this should honestly spark some ideas about creating a decentralized autonomous organization (DAO) out of SubSpace/Continuum and implementing a governance token that could give players a vote in community polls regarding map changes, league planning, etc. The token could also be used to bet on in-game duels, TWD matches, TWL games, from player or spec perspective.

              We could create a community pool/allocation from the start, like 60% of the pool goes to core staff members from the core zones, and from this pool we could draw funds as needed to service the population, dive staff compensation, and most importantly, actually start marketing. We could even correlate the token with PubBux or ?usage. Create addresses designated to every alias and distribute the token to players in amounts proportional to the amount of PubBux or ?usage they've earned over the years. Staff could even get tipped by a bot from a community pool for answering help calls and hosting events. New players can earn microfees for getting kills, and by earning these microfees would also have a say in governance so everyone could be included.

              We could market this very easily on Reddit and Twitter to the cryptocurrency crowd and easily get well over 100 people to sign into TW for the first time and introduce them to the game.

              It would be pretty easy to figure out how to create a DAO and token using aragon.org or another DAO-producing application on a faster network.

              If staff and the community are interested in monetizing TW and bringing hundreds or even thousands of new players to the game, consider this. This can all be done with the current server and client as voting and creating smart contracts to process bets would take place in a web browser.

              Great April Fool's btw BIET and Dwopple lol

We could even correlate the token with PubBux or ?usage, airdrop it to a bunch of addresses that are designated to every alias, and assign the addresses to different players proportional to the amount of PubBux they've earned over the years.

                not to distract from your post, but it was 99.9% BIET. It's BEAUTIFUL. I only wrote the crypto / blockchain blurbs in the news.txt after qan had already wrote something quick up.

                    Props to Biet on the graphics. They really look fantastic. It is always what I imagined a newer version of Subspace would look like. I’m ready for it to be the new normal

                        Even though this is a joke, have a crypto token infused into the Subspace economy would be the most OG Subspace shit we could ever do.

                        It would be the most decentralized community shit ever, like this old game powered by loser players in their 30+s up just set the ground work for the rest of internet gaming.

                            could you upload the graphics somewhere so we can keep playing with them?

                              All the graphics, except the background grid, can be downloaded here.

                              To use the graphics in pub, for the tileset and bot controlled graphics in particular, you need to put them in < Your Continuum Directory>/zones/SSCU Trench Wars/(public)/<put files here>.
