Star Swarm Stress Test - The Nitrous Game Engine

Ahh, vague omens and mysterious portents. Tangled webs of fate intertwined with the branches of destiny, blown by the capricious winds of happenstance. News, news....uh, actually there is some news!

Star Swarm Stress Test - The Nitrous Game Engine

Post by Scott Irving » Thu Jan 22, 2015 4:06 am

This is somewhat directly related to the new Star Control game Stardock is working on, it's actually been out for awhile, so many of you may already know. On steam there is a "utility" called Star Swarm Stress Test, it's a tech demo of the Nitrous game engine.. which if you missed it will be powering the new Star Control game. It also shows off DX11 and Mantle if you can benefit with hardware that handles it.

So if your curious about how powerful the engine for the new SC game will be and your on steam go check it out.

Remember if you have any news that's SC related in anyway please feel free to share it.

Cheers Hunams,

I think this is pretty cool and I'm excited to see how it is implemented. I have decided that I'm going to enjoy the new game even if it does not conform to canon or my expectations for the story. I figure it only hurts myself if I'm being butt-hurt about it.

Very cool! O0-smf

I just got an image in my head of a 2D melee with battles raging below. Kind of like 2.5D, just below the plane we're fighting on.
