Alright, so I’m running out of fancy ways to say Kickstarter, so sue me. ;) That being said, thanks to Marcin for tipping me off to ANOTHER interesting space game on Kickstarter, this one called Drifter. Originally coming out for iOS only — and therefore ineligible for coverage here — this Kickstarter is building funding for a PC and MAC versions of the game, so yay! Head over to Kickstarter for more info, especially as it has more info than the official page linked above. ;) Enjoy!
In our last adventure, Admiral Rubin had his eyes opened up to just how big the universe really is, and was offered a position in Leader Lapuri’s senior council. In this final look at Distant Worlds – Legends, we see if Senior Naval Advisor to the Grand Leader (SNAGL?) Rubin can handle the new responsibilities put upon him.
I’ll admit that I actually laid the groundwork for this article weeks ago, but for various reasons and distractions I never got to actually posting it. I figured, with the release of Weird Worlds in the latest Indie Royale bundle, now would be a good time to publish my latest adventure in Infinite Space. This time, join Captain Mohri of the Terran Frigate Star Devil for the latest adventure into the unknown!
Wow, the hits just keep on coming for Dan DiCicco and his excellent looking game, StarDrive. After getting well-funded on Kickstarter, Dan wrote me just now and announced that the folks at Iceberg Interactive have signed with his company, Zero Sum Games, to publish StarDrive in Q4 2012! This is excellent news for not only Dan and Zero Sum, but for fans as well, as now there will be more ways to get the game! Congrats to Dan and Zero Sum Games. Also, if you want to learn more about the game, be sure to check out my Q&A with Dan from a little while back. :)
So indie bundles are allll the rage these days, but sadly most of ‘em haven’t included spacey games. That changes today with the latest bundle from Indie Royale. Entitled the “May Hurray Bundle” — really? THAT’S the name? — it includes five games, most notably Weird Worlds: Return to Infinite Space. Right now you can get Weird Worlds — which I’m currently reviewing and enjoying very much — and all the other games and soundtracks for about $5, so what are you waiting for! Snag it now! Thanks for the @DManiac777!
So apparently there’s this game called Skyjacker that’s been in development for a little while — sadly I’d never heard of it until today — and they just launched a Kickstarter campaign. Based on their Kickstarter page…
- LOTR by its gaming atmosphere of space saga
- GTA by its criminal background and freedom of choice inside the game
- NFS by its energy and gameplay dynamics, and ability to customize the vehicle
And all of them together, transferred to space.
Interesting way to describe a space game. This all apparently means its huge and epic, has a lot of player choice, and fast-paced gameplay. Based on the videos on their homepage — one of which I’ll put after the cut — the combat does look pretty fun, so check it out! :) Enjoy!
