It seems that space-oriented games are a bit of a trend right now and we’re lovin’ it.

What would it be like to control your fleet amidst a war in space all from the first person perspective? For that, we turn to the recently launched Kickstarter campaign for Flagship. Flagship is a first person RTS game in the middle of a galactic war just as humans are beginning to expand their horizons in space. After a devastating event, humanity has been forced into a backwater system with very few resources and hardly any survivors. Players can scour through the universe and colonize planets to mine for resources and further increase the human population. Flagship is about starting from the ground up.

All from the bridge of the player’s starship, they can command their fleet, explore the universe, and most importantly, fight to rebuild what humanity lost.

Developed by Urban Logic Games, Flagship was designed for the oculus rift from the start and will be groundbreaking for expanding RTS games into the virtual reality output. And boy, we’re excited about this. After working on it for roughly a year, Flagship is in pre-alpha and in need of some funding to become a reality. On Kickstarter, the team is asking for £95K to pay for the rest of development into next year – particularly concentrating on the graphics and programming involved.

With the Kickstarter campaign, the team will finalize Flagship both for Windows and Oculus Rift. Later on, they plan to release for Mac and Linux but it is uncertain.
