Starwraith 3D Games is an unusual studio for two key reasons; firstly that it’s an indie studio that has produced an entire series of shockingly detailed and good-looking space combat sims (which in turn have built up a small but very dedicated community), and secondly because it’s almost all the work of one man – Shawn Bower. Today, the latest in the growing space sim franchise was released; Arvoch Alliance, ambitiously billing itself as the definitive 3d space combat sim. Given the massive features list on the official site, it seems hard to argue.
Santa is going to have to be working overtime to make this coming Christmas seem anywhere near noteworthy. The past month or two has seen a chain of Humble Bundles, Indie Royales and more dumping dozens of great discounted indie games on us. Now, indie co-operative Show Me The Games is hosting a 21 game sale for the next two weeks. Check it out.
StarWraith 3D Games has announced the release of the latest in their space combat and simulation series, Evochron Mercenary. In the title, you’ll pilot your spacecraft through a vast universe, performing dozens of different actions and activities such as buying, trading, negotiating, bribing, spying, racing, exploring and more.
Mercenary brings a completely new graphics engine to step up the atmospheric entries the series is famed for. New features such as player-built space stations for singleplayer and multiplayer and deeper customization options have been added as well.
The title runs $29.95 and can be purchased through the official site for the game. StarWraith is also offering up a demo client which can be unlocked to the full version at the wish of the player. No word on what it entails, but the dev does mention that those who purchase the game can continue where they left off in the demo and aren’t required to restart from scratch.
Single-manned studio StarWraith 3D Games has revealed the latest installment in its Evochron space sim series, revealing Evochron Mercenary packed with a completely new graphics engine to step up the seamless atmospheric entries the series boasts.
New features to the series include player-built space stations in both singleplayer and multiplayer as well as deeper customization options and a dynamic soundtrack. Players will pilot their spacecraft through the game’s vast universe, performing actions and activities such as buying, trading, negotiating, bribing, spying, racing, escorting, transporting, mining, exploring, cleaning equipment, clearing paths through asteroid fields, recruiting, protecting, hiring crew members, fuel harvesting, building stations, and designing/selling ships. Trust me, despite the vast emptiness of space there’s plenty of stuff to do.
Evochron Mercenary is scheduled for release on PC this fall via digital distribution. Pricing has yet to be announced, though previous entries Evochron Legends and Evochron Renegades ran $24.95 at launch. Announcement trailer? Sure, since you asked.
