AtomicTorch Studio was founded in 2013 to create its first project - VoidExpanse, an open world space exploration game. VoidExpanse united the best ideas from different sci-fi universes and introduced new innovative mechanics into the genre. After the initial phase of development, which took about a year the game was subsequently revealed on Steam Greenlight in early 2014. It immediately garnered a great success and support (with as much as two thirds voting in favor of the game) enabling it to pass the Greenlight in just one month. Around that time VoidExpanse was also made available on the company website allowing anyone to get then current version of the game and influence the development process. Many people embraced the opportunity to participate which transformed the game into its final state. aAnother important decision for the team was to deliver the game as a complete product and not use "Steam Early Access". VoidExpanse was released in early March, 2015.
