Phoenix USC Pre-Alpha Demo Trailer. Available December 2018.


Above is the official Phoenix USC pre-alpha demo trailer. It shows off what you can expect from the pre-alpha demo, from the visuals to the game play. If you like the idea of fast action space combat in an MMO setting then checkout the pre-alpha trailer and bask in the the space combat goodness. :)

The pre-alpha demo will include three missions designed to illustrate the style of space combat that will be available in the online MMO version later in development. The demo also helps to introduce users to the custom 'window' based GUI used in this game. The demo will allow you to experience ships in the game and get a feel for combat. A bot AI provides challenging combat as upto 40 bot ships engage you in battle. Game play takes place on two levels of play as you capture the flag in a huge base with stunning visuals and custom artwork.

The pre-alpha demo will be available the first part of December 2018 so be sure to follow us here on IndieDB for the details of this free to play pre-alpha demo. I've included some screen captures (below) of the pre-alpha demo in action. Don't forget to checkout the the video trailer and stay tuned for more details.

I have game play! The HUD works as described in recent posted images and when I'm killed by a bot I end up in safe zone. The game play is AWESOME! Feels just like SS/Continuum.

I have skill option which simply increases the shield energy cost from a bot weapon. Set it low for a newbie or high for a pro. Makes it pretty challenging and fun. You guys are going to love this. :D

I have a test HTML / webassembly game front-end going on ITCH.io. It’s sort of a place holder and allows me to test things. Check it out.

Early access - I am going to to setup a test version of the Phoenix USC pre-alpha demo in less then two weeks. I will be handing out download keys to those following me on FaceBook, Twitter, IndieDB and YouTube. So if you know someone who wants get in early and help test Phoenix USC have them follow (officially) me so they will be notified.

I am going to upload the demo to ITCH.io where I can control things a bit and use their analytics as well as offer things like early access. In the future the Phoenix USC website may host a version as well.

As soon as I have a clearer date I'll post it. I should have an article posted here about it soon. Spread the word. :D

Hi,
I have some Html5 examples of the kinds of lighting and shadow FX being added to Phoenix USC posted on my website. I just received Monkey X's (programming language) mojo2 which is its new 2D engine.

Can't wait to include these effects in game. :)
