Status Report: Fractured Space Free on Steam
I'm going very off topic right now but on Steam you can get Fractured Space game for free during this weekend and you get to keep it!
"Fractured Space is team-based space combat fought in gigantic capital ships. With the intensity of a shooter and the big-picture-thinking of a strategy game, Fractured Space is at the forefront of an exciting new frontier for the genre."
Why am I sharing this with you? This team is worth it! I've been playing this game on my free time for many months now but I also got to visit its developer and publisher Edge Case Games Ltd. office last year. I met their CEO, James Brooksby who is a really nice, down to earth, funny guy and is a major geek like the most of us, we went for a lunch and he introduced me to his team.
To create inspiration, the whole office is such a geek haven, not only are staff allowed to decorate their desks but there are also video/board games, figures from all sorts on display through the whole building. Also, the staff actually plays the game, they team up, play it live. Just like we do, to test things as much as possible.
One of my favourite things in the game is the level of detail from the ships which is just amazing, I couldn't get enough of watching the guys who build the models working. I still haven't quite chosen my favourite ship but I usually tend to go for anything that allows me to fight at a close and personal range like the Enforcer.
This weekend, I may actually livestream Fractured Space, for those interested, we can team up. :)
