Steam Greenlight Logo

Woohoo!

Today Steam released a new batch of Greenlit games, and it’s got quite a few spacey games on it, with some surprises too. These include:

There are a lot of other non-spacey games I’m excited to see on there too, like 1849 and FRONTIERS too. Congrats to all of those who got Greenlit today!

Spacey Game Newsies and Dealsies 3/28/14: The Thank-Gawd-It’s-Friday Edition

News Satellite Dish

Bringing On The News!!

Two news posts within a week? HOW CAN ANYONE LIVE AT THAT SPEED?  I’m unsure my friends…maybe I’ve finally gone mad. But I’ll tell you this, I’m on the upswing in terms of energy and motivation from my low point earlier this week. I therefore wanted to pound out some more news and deals before they piled up too much. Here goes!

Finally, we have a couple of sales. First off, Retrobooster is having a sale wherein it’s 50% off until April 2nd. It’s a really cool game, so check it out!

Then, GOG is having an Interplay Irresistibles sale in which a lot of awesome Interplay games are on sale. This of course means you can get the amazing Freespace 2 for $4.99, as well as its predecessor Descent: Freespace for $2.99. Seriously, folks, if you don’t have Freespace 2, now is the time. They also have excellent sci-fi games such as M.A.X. and Subwar 2050 (which was made by Particle Systems of Independence War fame) among many other excellent games. I’d jump on these if I didn’t already own almost all of ‘em. ;) (P.S. Clicking on those links and buying through ‘em helps the site out, FYI. ;)

That’s it for today folks. Have a fantastic weekend!

We Got Your Embedded Videos Right Here!

Spacey Game News 3/25/14 – There-Went-March Edition

Buried Under News!

Buried Under News!

Hello my friends! I’m sorry I’ve been so absent of late, but wow am I tired! A short time ago, I went to Yosemite for the better part of a week (some pics here) for a wedding in which my girlfriend was the maid of honor. As awesome a time as I had, it was EXHAAAAUSTING and I feel like I’m still recovering from the sleep deficit, so I’ve just only had energy for some basic gaming needs, you know? ;) There’s been a ton of news out since then, however, so I’m gonna try to get to all of it. Here goes!

Wow, that was almost all of March up until now, huh? Yeeesh! We’re not done yet though, as I have some deals as well as some related news. First off, in deals, Steam’s recent rash of weeklong deals includes Space Trader: Merchant Marine for $1.49 (though the page itself says $4.99 for some reason). Finally, in kinda related news, GOG announced that they’ll be supporting Linux starting later this year, which could see some of our favorite spacey classics reaching that platform.

WHEW that was a lot of stuff to get through. This post took forever to write, but y’all are worth it. :) Have a great day folks!

Space Noir Spacey Adventurey Combatey Game Announced

Pretty!

Pretty!

Thanks to podcast co-host aweomeness Jim for pointing this out. Over on Strategy Informer, they bring word that N-Fusion has announced a new game called Space Noir. The game looks to have both atmospheric and space combat, and looks damned pretty to boot. The trailer below says it takes place across five worlds and thirty-five missions, and will apparently be out for PC and…wow, tablets, really?…this Summer. Right now there doesn’t appear to be an official site yet, so head over to Facebook for more details. I’ll try and get ahold of the folks behind the game to get more info somehow. :) Enjoy the trailer!

Homeworld Remastered Announced

A Legendary Series Returns...

A Legendary Series Returns…

Thanks to everyone who made me aware of this during my snoozing hours. ;) The folks at Gearbox have finally announced their intentions for the recently-acquired Homeworld license with Homeworld Remastered. The remastered versions will come with updated graphics (including support for 4K displays), updated audio and music along with a centralized multiplayer mode that will “allow you to interact with other players like never before.” The original versions of both Homeworld 1 and 2 will be included as well, but updated to run on modern operating systems. There’s also a poll on the site asking folks if they’d want a physical collector’s edition as well. Like, duh, who doesn’t, right? ;) I’ll bring you more info as I get it.

Hello my friends, and welcome to another day of newsiness!! There’s plenty of goodness to get to today, including a bundle and some other stuff, so let’s get to it! Remember, all videos will be embedded below the cut. :)

We’re not done yet folks! First, in the bundle department, Bundle Stars’ Adrenaline Bundle is pretty damned great, as it has the fantastic Ring Runner, and in non-spacey game goodness, also both Etherlords games (which are awesome) and plenty more. Get this one if you can, folks.

We also have three new models from SOL Command for use in your space game, including a Personal Mining Unit, a base of operation for the PMUs and a sleek Dobrev frigate.

Finally, in not-related-but-still-interesting news comes word that Kickstarter passed the $1 billion mark in pledges, over $215 million coming from gaming alone, which is pretty awesome. Thanks VGN247 for the heads up!

Spacey News and Dealies 2/28/14: The Where-The-Hell-Did-February-Go Edition…

All those little dots are news stories...

So Many Pieces of News…

Hello my friends, and happy Friday! It’s been a busy week here, but the news has been piling up, so I thought I’d close out the work week with the latest batch of space game news. Let’s do this!

But wait, we’re not done, we have some sales! GamersGate is selling the aforementioned Sins of a Solar Empire: Rebellion for $19.98, but it’s been cheaper elsewhere so you might wanna wait. You can then get Gimbal in the Indie Royale Pancake Bundle and the AI War collection in Bundle Stars’ Fusion Bundle. Finally, DotEmu has a massive anniversary sale going on with too much stuff to list here.

Finally, amazing site McSweeny’s has an article covering one of the toughest jobs of any starship captain, yet one we don’t see modeled in games often enough. ;)

That’s it folks, have a great weekend!

Teaser: Something Beautiful This Way Comes…

A Spacey Question

What IS It…?

I was recently contacted by a developer teasing that a space game from the last several years will be getting a massive upgrade/overhaul…but I can’t tell you which one…

All I can do is show you this…

Note, I’m using IMGUR rather than WordPress’ built-in media features because this image is massive, and WP won’t do it justice. ;) You can try to guess what it is, but I won’t tell you even if you’re right. ;) Stay tuned for more…
