Ships Ahoy - Diaspora: Shattered Armistice

The Diaspora: Shattered Armistice Website offers the release of this community-created Windows, OS X, and Linux game (though the Linux version is not compiled) set in the Battlestar Galactica universe. The site is working as of this writing, but it has been up and down all day, so some patience may be required to contend with the demand for this. Here's word on what this features:

  • Fly the MK VII Viper, the Raptor or the new MK VIIe strike variant.
  • Take part in furious battles against Cylon forces.
  • Play multiplayer missions against your friends as Colonial or Cylon forces.
  • Completely voice acted throughout.
  • Original soundtrack inspired by the show
  • Create your own missions and share them with the included mission editor.

>Uh, the launcher?

Yeah, there wasn't one for me. It went straight into the game. I uninstalled and downloaded from a different source and now your comment makes sense.

HOLY SHIT IT CAME OUT????

I've been waiting on this for years. Like up to a month ago there was almost no word at all on launch date.

For those interested, this is a (heavily) modded Freespace 2 engine. The old girl looks fantastic still, and makes me wish for some new, good space combat sims.

Edit: Also, the detail put into the game is pretty awesome. I believe DRADIS works on all the ships, in real time, and they were tagged to do some basic model work on BSG Online.

It's a campaign. It's supposedly somewhat short, but I don't know how short. Seems pretty cool so far.

If you don't like where gaming is heading, stop giving your money to the people who are taking it in that direction.
