The Maslas Brothers have put together a very slick website for Wing Commander Flat Universe! WCFU is a top-down 2D shooter that uses some of the fancy art assets developed by Howard Day, Kyrgiannis and elend. The site has a very stylish user interface that presents the latest news, teaser trailer, universe maps and ship information for the fan game. And even more information is on the way as the game progresses. Check it out here!
Congrats to Roberts Space Industries on passing the record-breaking $15 million mark in their ongoing crowdfunding campaign. This unlocks the escort carrier for the game and will make available an upgrade handbook for customizing ships. They're already looking forward to the future. At $16 million, a Wing Commander-style Arena practice dogfighting zone will become available!
We (MaslasBros) are pleased to announce you that Daedalus Center Information Service is online.
Every wingnut with proper authorization codes (that is everyone) may use this service by visiting the following address: http://flatuniverse.solsector.net
To close up, we'd like to thank WC CIC for all their effort and support in order for this page to become a reality. AND NEVER forget to visit this site if you want to catch up with WC Flat Universe PROGRESS!
See you at CIC Birthday and Wings High!

Wing Commander On Sale For Lunar New Year
We've seen this sale before, but not quite for this reason. GOG.com is running a Lunar/Chinese New Year event that lops 71% off the price of the Wing Commander series. (2018-02-16)
Daedalus Station Gets Major Facelift
The Maslas Brothers have kicked off their big 2018 push with a huge revamp to Daedalus Station, the home base of Wing Commander Flat Universe. There are some nice improvements to welcome in new players, plus a lot of back end rework to make future updates easier to make. Other subsections include an archive of the Destiny's Way magazine and a ship database that syncs with the actual stats of the fighters in the game. (2018-02-15)

Check Out Kilrathi Saga's Swag
Longtime Wingnut Joshua Dworkin has put together a pretty neat unboxing video. Since this trend came along relatively recently, it's cool to see these done for classic Wing Commanders, and I don't think we've posted a Kilrathi Saga version before. Completionists will be happy to see that he's kept his unrelated reference cards and advertisements, and we get good glimpses at the awesome discs, beefy manual and super cool 2673/1997/2003/2014/2025 calendar.

Stealth Carrier Sneaks Into The News
DefianceIndustries has put together a very sleek stealth carrier that belongs to the Black Lance. He's dubbed it the Typhon, and it's strongly inspired by the Evansville class transport depicted in Wing Commander 4. The ship has been modeled in really exotic detail with nifty hexagonal hull patterns and interior items on the flight deck. (2018-02-12)
