BlackSpace Revealed

The PixelFoundry Website reveals plans for BlackSpace, an upcoming "unique form of real-time strategy, combining elements of action with an emphasis on economic and defensive efficiency" (thanks VG247). PixelFoundry is an indie developer formed by Volga Aksoy and Jerry Phaneuf, both of whom were previously at EA Sports Tiburon. Here's a teaser trailer, and here's a bit on the game:

BlackSpace, is a unique form of real-time strategy, combining elements of action with an emphasis on economic and defensive efficiency. Players will find themselves on the outskirts of explored space, harvesting minerals, and supplying markets, while using the resources around them to sustain their operations as well as the lives of the colonist workers.

The game takes place on X class asteroids, players will control both surface and orbital operations with the use of a specialized low gravity operation support vehicle. The vehicle controls take skill to maneuver safely, but once mastered, it becomes an extension of the players hand, commanding base operations, pilot drilling dig sites, prospecting large and unusual mineral deposits, and if need be, supporting the bases defense.

The play space encircles the celestial body and extends into orbit. This gives the player a layered and expansive strategic platform. The unique layout serves to broaden the players ability to develop varied and personalized solutions to the environmental and defensive challenges that await them.

Truly the worst trailer I've ever seen. However despite that I'm interested in this one, Fragile Alliance was one of my favourite games when I was at school and if it can capture some of the magic of that game I'll enjoy it.
