So when I wrote my epitaph for Jumpgate a little while back, I was told that Scott Brown — the game’s creator — was at a new studio working on a new spacey game! Well, it now looks like that game is coming to pass, and it’s called Squad Wars. As of right now, they’ve started a Kickstarter campaign to help raise capital, and most of the info on the game can be found on their Kickstarter page at the moment.
As of right now, features sound a lot like Jumpgate…squad-based combat, skill-based control, mining (YAY!) and more. The page has more info, but I’m tired and about to go home from work and it’s long and I’m too excited to read it all! ;) I hope to bring you more info on this game as I get it, but right now, all I know is I am DAMNED hopeful and thrilled about this.
