SciFly 2 @E3 - [UPDATED] w/ video from TA

Hey everyone!

I've been at E3 demoing an early alpha build of SciFly 2 to press and other developers. It's been tons of fun.

New hands-on video and write up from TA!

Tons of info on website:
I've been meaning to upgrade SciFly2.com, but E3 has kept me so busy I haven't been able to do what I intended. But, non the less I slapped some screen shots up there and even decided to link the design document!

Check it out!

E3 is just getting started and I'll be posting updates here as stuff happens.

Arn just took a hands-on video. So if that goes up you can see it in action :-)

Wow, just read through the design document...and man does this game look epic The graphics are great, the ship designs and customization look very well done, and the gameplay itself sounds really fun...I have a question though, will there be any other advanced cities/civilizations that you have to conquer? or will there just be a bunch of small island outposts

Wow. It looks great. I love the big open world with the islands.
You should consider making a free roaming shooter with the ability to travel by boat and jeeps on the land. Something like a scaled down FarCry.
That would be awesome (but hard work).
