Lenny Raposo has been hard at work on creating a web interface for a Wing Commander role playing game. He has been getting experience in implementing a project like this in a Star Trek environment here. The completed game will allow people to sign up and play characters in space. There will be a wide variety of tasks available to occupy the time and interact with others. A glimpse at the interface will give you an idea what features will be available.
Also wanted to get some feed back from the Wing Commander community at WC CIC. Like what era would they like the game to take place in? Should it be a new chapter in the Wing Commander Saga? What races would players like to see in the game? What ship and weapons or technology would they like available to them? Any input at this point in time would be greatly appreciated.You can click the Discuss link at the bottom of this update to provide feedback. There should be a website for the project up soon with more information. This reminds me of several old shareware science fiction games I'd play back in the day. Going up against actual people in this environment would be pretty neat.
