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!

Hobbes Betrayal Crosses Over Language Barriers
Most people are familiar with the infamous video cuts that were made to fit all of the video on the Wing Commander 3 discs. Helpful sequences such as the TCN news bursts and Hobbes explanation were omitted due to space constraints. Fortunately, these are now available here at the CIC, but for a long time, the main way players could watch the Hobbes scene was to track down a copy of WC3 on the Playstation or 3DO. (2018-05-23)

Check Out Spanish Wing Commander Armada
Christian Klein has found another rare and exotic Spanish Wing Commander translation by DROSoft. His last couple finds were for WC1 and the Secret Missions, but this jumps all the way forward to Armada. It would be a treat to see how they changed the Voices of War manual and how the English and Spanish versions would mesh over multiplayer. (2018-05-22)
Wing Commander Meme of the Day: Put It Somewhere Else Patrick
Trusty Tarsus Takes Shape
Now that the Talon's out in the wild, DefianceIndustries' focus shifts to the Gemini Sector's other workhorse, the Tarsus. It's kind of a shame you don't actually run into them out and about, because the design is just so darn charming. Perhaps some of the allure is simply because it's your own unique home away from home out in space for so much of the game. (2018-05-21)
