[WIP] Elite Style Space Trader "The Core" for iPad

Hi guys, I've finally lifted the lid on my current project, it's an iPad specific game entitled "The Core" and is a space trading / combat game... Here's the official blurb..

The Core is set in the year 3520, interstellar travel is a reality and we most certainly are not alone. Travel the galaxys core systems (known as "The Core") to over half a million stars, each with unique planetary formations.
Every colonised planet has its own market, economy and diplomacy making for an in depth trading game.

Trading is only one aspect of the game, the core will also feature real time combat, generative mission system, mining, levelling, ship upgrades and planet exploration modules as well. Once all these modules are in place an immersive story arc will be added alongside the free roaming sandbox play that will be playable at any point during your time in the core.

So, that's the outline, onto the game specs: 23 space ships, 15 weapons, 8 different human and alien races, half a million stars, over 1.5 million planets, more upgrades and equipment than I can count, numerous goods for trading. Black market, licensed market, unlicensed third party sellers, relationships, and more!

This looks great, as does the remake of Island Strike on your site. My iPad and I look forward to them.

I'll be looking forward to this!

Didn't get on with warpgate all that much unfortunately. Lacking the Elite feel.
