Ensign 1 - multiplayer space dogfight game announced

Posted by Dave Seaman on Tuesday, 1 November 2011

From the team behind Helena the 3rd:

Space Combat With a Twist
Imagine you're gripped in the heat of a space dogfight, and your side is losing. In the distance, you notice a large asteroid which everyone else has been too distracted to explore. With nothing to lose, you leave the battlezone to check it out. Hidden behind the rock is a derelict battle cruiser which you decide to dock on and explore. The ship is overrun with some kind of alien infestation, but you dispatch of the insect like creatures and quickly find the bridge. After powering up the ship, you find that it's powerful weapons are still in tact, and that it just might be enough to turn the battle...

Or perhaps you find yourself in a different battle between two factions fighting over control of a pirate base. You're able to get there first and land in one of the docking areas. You quickly exit your ship and run to the nearest set of turret pods. From there you're able to effortlessly destroy any enemies in the vicinity.

Gameplay like that is what we're trying to capture in Ensign 1. We'd like it to be an immersive multiplayer space combat game that allows players to leave their ships and explore, even pilot much larger space cruisers. Ensign 1 will be available for Windows and Linux.

How Donations Will Be Used

The money here will be used to help us get the game to a point where it could be sold in alpha-funding. We'll need to create a few single player missions progressing from destroying a few enemy fighters to invading an alien space cruiser. We'll also be working on providing a couple of multiplayer arenas.

We're hoping after that we will be able to support ourselves from there. Any help you can provide us with to get us there is greatly appreciated!
