I've been putting a quick game together over the last two days for a break on my main project. It's a mix between an open world space game and an arcade shoot 'em up, with a very... very... heavy focus on customization. It has 35 different ships, with 423,234 different- oh wait, screenshot thread, right. I'll shut up now.
This kind of sounds like the old Escape Velocity games made by Ambrosia for the Mac. I lost hours of my life on those games... and spent just as much time modding them. I look forward to your game if it comes to fruition.[/QUOTE]
Thanks for your interest! I can't say I've played the EV series, but if I remember correctly, wasn't that top down or isometric or something? Unfourtantly, the one I'm putting together is a twist on the open world genre by having flight between planets from a "side on" veiw. So I'm not sure if it's really like EV...
