at some other thread i already talked about this game, but it ended up kinda unnoticed, as it was offtopic, therefore i am creating this topic.
Basically i would like to get this game into your attention, as fellow RTS gamers, in my quest to help the indie devs of Gemini Wars, and at the same time, to recruit some potential future co-players for multiplayer clashes.
Few words about the game, it is a space RTS game, so everyone, who hates space-based game with the passion or out of principle, can stop reading now. The game is going to be probably macro-oriented, as you can play in several star-systems at once, basically on multiple "maps". If you are aware of Sins of a Solar Empire, this game is going to be in some ways similar, but it will lack the 4X things - diplomacy and, extended research and empire management. If anyone recalls here old game called Conquest Frontier Wars from circa 2001, i suppose, it will be even more similar to that game than SoaSE.
Finally for people, who are into singleplayer campaigns, the game is going to have one, alongside some nice rendered video sequences between missions. Personally, this is not my cup of tea, unless the game is called Homeworld, but maybe the authors will surprise me. For less demanding people like me, when it comes to singleplayer story though, those, who liked campaigns/stories of the recent CnC games, i suppose there should be no problem. We shall see.
The game is about to be released on 20th April this year, so for those, who are interested, it might be IMHO nice filler, until Gen 2 comes out. It can be available via digital distribution even sooner, but this has not been disclosed yet.
