centaurianmudpig has released a new playable demo of his Wing Commander style shooter, Project Aries 3D 64. This update includes fixes for various issues that have been identified in playtesting to date, and pilots now have a high score table to record their accomplishments. A new trailer has been released below, but there are plenty of additional screenshots and videos at the project website to get bet acquainted with what to expect. The Windows demo itself is also available and clocks in at a tight 15 meg package.
Project Aries 3D 64 (working title) is a 3D space combat simulation video game. A cross between arcade and realistic; more likely to be compared against Wing Commander than Star Citizen. This is an indie project, developed by a single individual. Work of PA started back in 2011 has has been developed in my spare time to this day. While development has not been consistent, it continues, and has been iterated since it's conception. The concept originally started off as a 2D top down space combat game, using Blitz Basic (2000); and progressed through various releases of the Blitz software family, in to XNA and has finally arrived at it's new home, Unity3D (2011). PA has gone through several game names, originally titled Hostile Conflict, and has now fallen on a codename until a suitable title can be revealed.
