I was just poking around and stumbled over yet another space mmorpg that is in the works. I'm a little surprised, it sounds really great and is looking stunning. Has anyone else checked out Infinity?


Infinity employs an open-ended world design, in which a player can control everything from a small shuttle to massive military dreadnaught, a single mining operation to an entire vast corporate empire, all without having to change characters. A completely player-skill based game design, Infinity sheds the need for character classes and skills by embracing self-balance over arbitrary limitation, allowing players to choose their own path to make their name across the galaxy.
Looks to be a massive scale project by a small indie team, with community contributions and already features a combat prototype that players can help test the game out while having a bit of fun. Objects aren't static, the orbit everything and one another with millions of systems for players to explore.

You can fly from space right down to the planets, go anywhere you can see. Its a massive procedurally generated universe. Frankly I'm amazed at what they've achieved so far. :)

Oh and there's some interviews about too.


Found some pre-alpha footage of the combat engine prototype test engine. This is not the fully functional game, but gives you an idea of gameplay in action for combat.

Hey Reoh,

I actually saw a video of this game a couple years ago, someone tried to pass it off as a planetary flight video for EvE. It is certainly a beautiful game engine, with seemless space/planets. If they manage to make it anything like elite (able to fly down and dock at stations on planets etc), it will be pretty cool :)

Thanks for the site link, ill be keeping an eye on this one.

Great, another Space MMO to wait on.

I just want one of them to actually be finished so I can play, heh.

Hahaha yeah I hear that Drac. As you know I caved and started playing Eve to sate that thirt I've had for the genre. Hopefully BP should be launching soon, and JGE... not too near off? I hope? I don't think Infinity will be coming out to the public for a couple years yet.
