In what parallel universe is the space shooter genre not only alive and thriving, but already tired and stale? I mean, how many came out in 2005? X3, and... what? And in 2004? Starshatter, Space Interceptor and Void War, right? Plus Jump to Lightspeed, I guess.

Silly me. My sarcasm meter needed rebooting.

Not to knock their work, but if people want the same space fighting sim over and over we don't have to go indie. There are about 50 bajillion of them out there and more come out every day. If someone "new" or "independant" or "upstart" wants to make a name for themselves, they should make something new - not rehash old tired concepts.

Uh, the developer DID innovate, he DID NOT immitate the high end graphics you see by large scale IMMITATORS in the industry.

Get it right

Sure, as soon as an independant developer innovates, instead of imitates.

FFS give the game a shot. Give an independent developer a shot.

They're not that bad...they just aren't super high tech. And you have to appreciate an 11.2 meg demo.

I believe it's programmed in Darkbasic, one of those "Now you can write games too!" programming packages. It's actually quite impressive for what's basically one guy's pet project.

Actually the gameplay is great. The graphics not so. This game is a labor of love. And it's got deep tactical options when you fly the ships you can pully off some really cool flying moves.

I like space sims, but the graphics in this game are so awful, I really don't want to even give it a chance...

I thought space combat wasn't "hip with the cool kids" anymore.
