Whooooaaaa you guys.

I remember looking at 3030 before and not being all that interested, but looking at it again, it reminds me of Escape Velocity…


#4712

That’s part of its charm.


#4713

What the heck? Wasn’t that out even before Jumpgate?


#4714

JG was in beta for a year or so, but yeah, this released a touch before JG went live in 2001, IIRC.

Brian

Have you or can you take a look at this game:


#4716

Nice find. I’m intrigued as well.


#4717

At first look, it looks like a better, meatier version of Sid Meier’s Starships.


#4718

Ancient Frontier is a turn-based strategy role-playing game set in deep space in the far future. Players will explore, conquer, pillage, or liberate the frontiers of space.

My goodness. Wishlisted.


#4719

I’ve got it and hope to dive in tonight or this weekend.

Katie bar the door! Too many turn based space strategy games. Who’d a thunk such a thing just a few years ago?

The combat looks kinda like Age of Wonders III in space. If the tactical AI is as good as AOW3 that would be marvelous. Destructible terrain and cover, oui!

Is there a price listed?


#4721

$24.99 as I recall from a forum discussion.


#4722

Report back, posthaste!


#4723

YOU’RE NOT MY DAD!

Er…I mean…sure!


#4724

Not sure if you’ve seen this new project Brian - Star Zeal on indiegogo from a South African dev.


#4725

I did not, thank you!


#4726

Scored as a “wait for sale.” But the bug he mentions has since been fixed.


#4727

25% off Ancient Frontier until 9/28.


#4728

OMG Astrox Imperium announced!

That looks orders of magnitude better than the original. But man, I really, really wish that mining caused smaller rocks to be discharged from where you were mining and had to be sucked up. There’s something about the beam auto-magically depositing ore into your cargo that seems much less satisfying.
