Free BCM Gold and Universal Combat Coming

A post on the 3000AD Discussion Board by Derek Smart announces that Battlecruiser Millennium Gold and the original Universal Combat will be released for free over the internet at some point soon, as the rights to both sci-fi games are about to lapse:

Dreamcatcher's five year rights to Battlecruiser Millennium Gold and the original Universal Combat expires on 12-18-07. I do not intend to renew those rights.

In keeping with my tradition, both games will be released for free on the Internet at some point in the near future.

Say what you want but he and his small dev team are slowly but surely advancing this game to a level that puts it squarely at the top of deep space sims.

look at the screen shots for the new game coming in January

When you consider how pubs like EA trash one dev after the next even if you think this guy is a jerk you have to respect the fact that he has stayed the course and makes one of the only fully featured true space sim left in existence.

Honestly I bet that at least 1/2 of you would like the last UC game released. And this new one pretty much puts to rest the remaining complaints about graphics. every ship has its own cockpit, the space stations look awesome, everything is to scale, you can still do trading, explore planets, destroy cities, mine for minerals and engage in massive space combat.

I hope this new game gets the credit it will probably deserves.
