“We have gone back to the roots of space combat, spending many years working in the freespace engine on mods such as The Babylon project has been a huge plus,” said Lead Designer Shaun Williams. “There are many space games coming onto the market but not many single player and story driven scripted games.
A lot of games are multiplayer, dynamically generated or does not focus entirely on space combat simulation.” “With the incredible experience and talent of our small indie team, we are thrilled to offer what we believe is the most exciting single player space combat game to hit the market for a long time.”
All focus on Starfighter origins is single player and is designed around a unique pick up and play control system. The controls are easy to pick up and take time to master. The game is best played with a gamepad but also supports HOTAS and keyboard and mouse as well as full native support for Track IR.
This is the 3rd release from Mad About Games Studios Ltd. The small Blackpool based indie studio is led by Shaun Williams BA, best known for his work on such titles as CDF Starfighter VR, CDF Ghostship and Ghostship Aftermath. Shaun Williams also designed and created the IP for the Colonial Defence Force, dozens of different ships from the universe feature in Starfighter Origins.
Using the Unreal 4 engine, the CDF universe is brought to life with stunning visuals and sound for such a small team with almost zero budget.
We are looking at an XboxOne Release this summer which we will be confirming with Microsoft over the coming weeks. A playstation 4 version is to be confimed.
