    So basically it’s an Elite clone? I just need to be able to mine and smuggle, than I’m set.

      Not entirely sure yet, but I hope to find out more.

        It’s more of an X-Wing/Tie Fighter game, where each mission places assets and then lets everyone do their thing. Scavenging/harvesting/resource management isn’t in the scope of this project, apart from buying stuff on the market with successful mission rewards.

        You can certainly blow the crap out of asteroids with your weapons though. (In fact you can nudge an asteroid into a group of ships – the expanding asteroid bits acts pretty much like a frag grenade in close quarters.) And there are miners and smugglers in the game, along with merchants, settlers, and bounty hunters. So it’s a living universe. Just one in which the protagonist is too proud to collect scraps, and too much of a jerk to earn an honest wage.

  2. Interface looks nice. not crazy about the voice work i’m hearing though.

      Meh, it’s one of them there eastern European games, so I’ve grown to expect wonky voice work. ;)

      • Veav says:

        Pretty much! The voices you’re hearing are the programmers themselves, and they’re placeholders – the “demo” really is an alpha build, an internal testbed they’ve been using. So they stuck their own voices in there to test comms as well as make sure it “feels right” with all intention of getting professional voice work done further down the development roadmap.

        Personally I like their voices. The setting is you’re the lone human in a galaxy of conflicting alien races. Well – they sound alien, like someone who’s parroting english. Because, uhh… yeah. }:D
