Gold - Galactic Command: Echo Squad

This press release announces that Galactic Command: Echo Squad is gold, with 3000AD's foray into episodic gaming set to launch exclusively on GameTap in "late spring." Here's a bit from the release, which seems to have been caught in the space-time continuum since early February:

ATLANTA - February 7, 2007 - GameTap, the first-of-its-kind broadband entertainment network from Turner Broadcasting System, Inc. (TBS, Inc.), today announced the upcoming addition of Galactic Command Echo Squad to its GameTap Originals publishing division. Inspired by the first generation of space combat games, Galactic Command Echo Squad is a fast-paced episodic space shooter set in an expansive galaxy. With an evolving story line that is constantly changing, no two playing sessions are ever the same.

Working closely with independent game developer 3000AD Inc., GameTap will launch the first of four scheduled episodes in late spring exclusively to GameTap subscribers. Each of the four episodes is designed as a campaign with sixteen lengthy missions and unique conclusions, all of which provide hours of gripping gameplay. Beginning with Episode 1: Rise of the Insurgents, episodes will be released on a monthly basis.

Wow those graphics are pretty horrendous. I usually don't complain too much about graphics if the gameplay is good, but those are just kind of painful to look at.

I hope you put more time into designing the game mechanics and streamlining the UI than you did with the visuals.
