Frosty reports that a company called Raylight has developed a new GameBoy Advance game called Star Giants. Hades contacted them to ask a few questions -- it's not Wing Commander... but it sure looks great! Here's the description and some very cool screenshots that Raylight was kind enough to send us...
Star Giants is a 3D space combat simulator, this is the first game of this genre to appear on the GBA and it will set the standard for all other games of this genre on a handheld console. The game will feature massive use of special effects and gorgeous sound. The playability will offer options similar to a pc based title. All the basic commands for the ship will be there including speed, banking, missiles, flare, and different visuals from the cockpit….just like a 3D game on powerful hardware. The most important characteristic of Star Giants is the multipath story. In other words, the story changes according to what the user does and achieves in the game. It will feature different endings. The other important aspect of the game is the multiplayer mode. Thanks to the link-up capabilities of the GBA Star Giants allows up to 4 players to enjoy the game's challenging 3D space fighting. Players can play against each other, combat as a Team (player 1,2 vs player 3,4), or engage in cooperation mode in which the 4 players must work together in order to accomplish their mission. The cooperation mode will have a completely new set of missions to involve all players in the action.
