Cliffski’s new game is coming out before the end of this year! I enjoyed the first one and even bought all DLC for it. So I guess I could be considered a fan. :)
FIRST VIDEO (Pre-Alpha) Cliff is soft talker, so raise up your volume.
Gratuitous Space Battles 2 is the sequel to GSB 1, developed by Positech games. it is currently in development and targeted for an initial release in late 2014 on the PC/OSX/Linux platforms. The sequel will hold true to the basic theme of the original game, but will have a complete engine re-write, and a vast range of cool new features yet to be announced. We can definitely confirm that the new game will have achievements, multiple-monitor support, and mod support. Also a decent website, eventually :D
GSB2 will be available on PC, MAc or Linux, but is not being targeted at IOS or other tablets, as first and foremost, this is a desktop experience ideal for people with gratuitously big monitors. The game is designed to support 5120 resolutions stretched over multiple monitors, regardless of video card. Our aim is for the game to scale down nicely to older PCs, but provide a suitable experience for PC enthusiasts with insane setups!
GSB2 will retain the same hands-off gameplay of the original title, with players designing fleets of ships to battle it out against vast alien fleets. The game will support the same challenge-based asynchronous online combat of the original. Like GSB1, the new game will be a 2D experience, but with a substantially improved engine that gives a much-more 3D and immersive feel.
