Default New Game from creator of WING COMMANDER series called Squadron 42: Star Citizen

G'day

It appears that the guy behind the whole Wing Commander series of games back in the 1990s that a lot of people remember fondly is back creating a new game.

There is several trailers floating around of it but here is a link to an extended version of one.

SQUADRON 42: STAR CITIZEN


Definitly got me interested considering how many hours I sunk into the Wing Commander series and its spinoff Privateer.

Regards,
B

The crowd funding is up and running now, no totals as yet since their site got slammed earlier today but I'm already considering whether I want to toss in $250 or $500.

Roberts Space Industries - Star Citizen

Looks amazing and if Roberts manages to fully realise his ambitions for it I think it will be one hell of a ride.

I'll probably throw $250 their way next weekend as well. Would love to see the WC universe resurrected in another game

looks to be 2 years away, but the hybrid-model (single-player/quasi-MMO) looks interesting with public/private servers and extensive modding. needless to say, the genre could use something like this...perhaps minus the FMV this time, as nostalgic as it may seem

The FMV was only cool because of the somewhat notable actors involved, and how cheesy the writing was. It was like an 80s scifi with 1990s era production values - so wrong yet so right for the target audience. I don't think you could capture that correctly in a modern game.

Looks wicked. I sank more hours into Freelancer than I care to think about so I'm hoping he goes more that way than full on WC

Well, i just pledged to the kickstarter. I haven't seen a good space sim for a very long time. X-wing, tie-fighter, descent freespace... never really got into the wing commander series.\

Bring on the sub-forum!
