Have you ever wondered what it felt like to pilot the Millennium Falcon through the asteroid field in Empire Strikes Back; dodging asteroids and evading enemy fighters? Well Scavenger
looks nothing like it Star Wars, but it does look like some good wireframe fun.
It's actually pretty impressive for a free game built in your friendly Unity engine, so hopefully there won't be too many mouse issues on Linux as Unity games do quite often suffer mouse problems on Linux.
The graphical style in this game is awesome though, it reminds me of games on the Amiga and some of the early PC space-shooter games.
Have you ever wondered what it felt like to pilot the Millennium Falcon through the asteroid field in Empire Strikes Back; dodging asteroids and evading enemy fighters? Do you love the retro nostalgia of wireframe graphics and glitchy music? Do you have an urge to hoard goods and upgrade spaceships? If you answered yes to any of these questions you may be excited to know that Scavenger is launching on Jan 19th. Its free to preorder so get in now!
The player takes the role of a scavenger who manages to survive the icey depths of space by collecting minerals from asteroid fields in gravity anomalies. Oxygen, ore and fuel are collected to maintain the vital systems on your ship and to provide life support. However you are not alone. Rogue AI drones also make their living from these asteroid fields and they don't take kindly to intruders. Upgrade your speed, manoeuvrability and capacity with collected ore, and fight off the drones with your blaster and homing missiles.
