Re: Divine Space game in development

I'm personally very excited by this project and only have one concern right now about it: You guys have done everything by the book- but not getting much press coverage!

Star control planets

Hi all,

Re: Divine Space game in development

Did you guys by any chance have anything to do with Space Rangers?

That's a game I haven't seen mentioned much on here, which is curious given the obvious Star Control love of its developers :)

Re: [Dark Quadrant] Update!

It started as purely a melee inspired game, but recently I have been given the opportunity to merge it with a friend's project that includes a sandbox universe, planet landing etc, and opens up the possibility of a full Star control 2 grade game. I'll announce it all once I have more news :)

Re: Kickstarter

Wow -> Look at this http://www.cyberroach.com/analog/an20/universe.htm

Re: Kickstarter

Thanks- I definitely need to investigate Star Flight more as it seems like it was big influence on Star Control.
