Spacey Game News and Deals 7/3/13: The Teensy-Tiny-Bit-of-Stuff Edition

Just a Wee Bit O' News Today.

Just a Wee Bit O’ News Today.

Helllooooooo folks. How y’all doin’? Happy Wednesday, wheeeeeee! It’s a slow day here, newswise and otherwise, so I’m gonna pound this out and do some other stuff around here. Let’s do this!

  • GoD Factory: Wingmen – With sixty-one hours left as I write this, the devs wrote about a final push coming in the next day or so, as well as a new video on the game’s artistic direction, which I’ll also embed below.
  • Eterium – Their Kickstarter has been updated with revised stretch goals which include full cockpits for those who like cockpits. ;)
  • Deep Space Settlement – Over on Twitter, DSSMathias posted two screenshots showing off component highlighting. Puuuuuuuurdy!
  • EVE Online – According to a story on VG247, a major alliance has been disbanded and robbed of 400 million ISK due to a well-placed spy. Ah, this game. ;)
  • Krang’s Universe – So the dev of this “space-conquest strategy game” wrote in to ask if I’d look at his game, and I will, but I wanted to share it with y’all too. :) It looks like it’ll be coming out for Mac and iOS before PC. Boo. ;)
  • Thrust Control - Found this new Lunar Lander-style game on Reddit, and it looks cool. Speaking of, the dev is giving a Reddit-based discount as well.
  • The Secret of Universe Alpha – Found this one on Kickstarter, looks like a fun little spacey shooter thingy.
  • Ellipse – Also found this on Kickstarter, looks to be a starship sim with FPS elements, not sure though. The large asking amount is a big concern here. :/

Finally, we have one deal today, the quirky Russian space/FPS game Precursors is $4.98 today on GamersGate. Don’t forget to install the fan improvement pack if you do decide to pick it up.

That’s it for today folks! Have a great one!

flattr this!

    Seriously, they looking for 1.8 million dollars to fund their game Ellipse. Unless Chris Roberts is doing a shadow project, I don’t see it happening, especially with what their showing in an early alpha render of a Spacecraft…

      Yeah, as much as I’d love to see all spacey game Kickstarters succeed, the high asking price on this one really makes me doubtful, especially when it’s lacking the name recognition like you suggested. :/

Chime In!
