A while back, another spacey looking game on Kickstarter appeared entitled Edge of Space. Now I’ll admit at first I honestly wasn’t sure if this was enough of a spacey game to satisfy my criteria for coverage on this site. I therefore decided to send the developer, Jacob Crane, a message to see if he’d like to answer some of my questions in the hopes of clearing things up. Please enjoy the answers below. :)
Hey y’all, just wanted to let y’all know that the background image is now clickable and going to the Gemini Wars website. It’s not fully aligned, but I’m working on it. I invite you to click the image to learn more about this upcoming game, and thank you for visiting, as always. :)
Hey y’all, some spacey game Kickstarter projects are coming to a close shortly, and aren’t near their funding goals, so if you can help ‘em out, please do so, as we need more spacey games. These include:
- Kinetic Void:
30 Hours Left, 60% FundedFully Funded!! YAY!!
- Edge of Space: 9 Days Left, 53% Funded
Conquest 2: 10 Days Left, 1% Funded- This one is being pulled down, sadly, due to lack of interest. :(
As always, I’m on the lookout for more space games on Kickstarter, so if you see any that I’ve not mentioned, please let me know. Thanks y’all!
Hey guys, right now on Amazon, you can get the amazing Paradox Plentiful Package, which includes the complete Sword of the Stars Collection, as well as Sword of the Stars II: Lords of Winter. In the non-spacey game list, it includes Victoria II, Crusader Kings II, and Magicka with all of its DLC, all for freaking $12.49.
This is a steal, people, an AMAZING steal, so get it now while it’s hot!
Hey y’all, remember that post I put up a couple of days ago saying how awful I felt? Well guess what? It got WORSE! YAAAY! I’ve been at home for the past 1.5 days resting, and I’m still feeling somewhat crappy. When I feel crappy I lose motivation in dang near everything, including writing and playing video games. This coupled with the busy weekend and such means that content’s been lacking lately, and will continue to do so for at least a few more days.
I apologize for this somewhat slow time, but I need to focus on getting well. I just wanted to keep y’all in the loop so y’all didn’t wonder why there were several days of dead air from me, both here on the blog and in the forums. I…just don’t have enough energy to interact too much right now. I hope y’all understand, and I hope to get well as quickly as I can so I can jump back on the horse and return to chruning out content for this blog I love so much. Thanks for your patience and patronage, as always. :)
Hey y’all, you might’ve noticed the site’s been light on updates for a few days or so now, and I’m sorry about that. I had a craaaaaaaaaaazy time at work last week which really sapped all of my energy, and this past weekend I went to a wedding in San Diego, which kicked my butt but good. I need a little time to recover, so updates might be light still for a little bit longer.
I’ve got the bulk work done for a few articles — first review article for Stellar Impact, Interstellar Defense Troops and a preview of Gemini Wars, for example — I just need the energy to write it all up, so maybe later this week or early next week I should be able to jump back on the horse. I hope this isn’t an inconvenience for anyone, and I thank you all for visiting. Have a great day.
When I first heard that Conquest 2 – Vyrium Uprising had arisen like a phoenix from the ashes, and had appeared on Kickstarter, I was insanely excited. I immediately used the contact form on the Kickstarter page to make a press inquiry…and received a reply from Eric Freaking Peterson (Note: Freaking is not his middle name….I hope…).
You know, the guy who worked on the original Conquest: Frontier Wars, as well as Wing Commander IV, Privateer 2 and Starlancer? ;) To say I was starstruck was an understatement. ;) Despite my fanboyish excitement — or maybe because of? — Eric agreed to do a little Q&A with me, and you can read it after the cut, as well as look at two exclusive screenshots from Conquest 2. Enjoy!!
So my history with console games is VERY scattered (why do you think this blog focuses mostly on computer-based games?). I had all the Ataris up to the 5200, as well as the Vectrex and so on, but when I got my first PC in the mid 1980s, all of that stopped…
Until maybe 2002, when I made my first foray back into consoles for nearly 20 years with the purchase of a used Sega Dreamcast, and I purchased it for only one game…
Hey y’all, I wanted to just remind y’all that several spacey Kickstarters are ending soon — or off to a really slow start — so they could use some funding to help meet their goals. These include:
- Squad Wars: 6% Funded, 3 Days Left (Check out my Q&A)
- Kinetic Void: 23% Funded, 15 Days Left
- Skyjacker: 12% Funded, 16 Days Left
- Edge of Space: 19% Funded, 23 Days Left
- Conquest 2 Vyrium Uprising: Only 1% Funded, 24 Days Left
So if any of these look interesting to ya, please kick ‘em some funds if you can. Also, if there are any computer space games not listed here that I should be aware of, please let me know. Thanks!
Gemini Wars — an upcoming fleet-based RTS from Camel 101 — is coming out in just a few weeks. While the team are busy putting the final touches on this story-driven RTS, I was able to get some time with Camel 101′s Bruno Cesteiro to answer some questions I had about the game. I hope you’ll enjoy my answers below after the cut. :)
