Independant Space Sims
Tales of the Rampant Coyote: Fourteen Indie 3D Space Combat Games - And More!

The above blogger made a post with all the latest space sims in development detailed and linked. It's nice to have a starting point when you're looking for something different.

Dissect and discuss.

You just go to the next entry in the catalogue of lies you can use to destroy your life." - John Dolan

Re: Independant Space Sims
Good article. But why does everyone think B5:IfH is based on FreeSpace?
Let there be light
Let there be moon
Let there be stars and let there be you
Let there be monsters and let there be pain
Let us begin to feel again

Probably because everyone mistakes it for the Babylon Project  :P.

Starshatter has some issues but is worth checking out. The biggest is that those publisher idiots still demand 40 bucks  :mad:

Does crazy Software Engineering for a living, until he finally musters the courage to start building games for real. Might never happen.

I don't think that's outrageous for a small independent publisher. Once you break $60 for a computer sim you've gone too far in most cases, though. And if you do charge that, that game-or-whatever-it-is better be worth it in some way, preferably in terms of modding or adding your own content.

No, the biggest is that the old version with lame graphics--you know, the one that can run on my system--isn't being sold by the publishers anymore.

I are sad.
I will ask that you explain yourself. Please do so with the clear understanding that I may decide I am angry enough to destroy all of you and raze this sickening mausoleum of fraud down to the naked rock it stands on.
