I came across this title recently, although it's probably been in known development for some time. I was immediately struck with its similarity to Star Control and I thought the community here would be very interested. Anybody else familiar with it?
It's hard to say how this title could inspire Star Control as it is also some way off from being released. It clearly has a more dramatic tone and I'm sure it won't be a direct analog to Star Control, but it seems like it shares many similar themes. Games like this are few and far between.
I'm definitely keeping this on my radar; I think Stardock should be paying attention to titles like this to see what kind of contemporary elements are being incorporated into the very sparse landscape that is the space adventure genre. I really love some of the visuals in this trailer.
