You might want to act fast on picking up Sky Rogue [itch.io, Steam] if you've been on the fence about it, as this super stylish rogue-lite action flight simulator is releasing in full soon and before that the price is going up.


On Monday, the price will increase to $19.95. They didn't give a specific date for when it's leaving Early Access, other than "soon".

About the game
QuoteSky Rogue is a fwooshy rogue-lite action flight simulator! Blow things up over land, sea, and air, on an infinite number of procedurally-generated islands. Choose one of a diverse set of aeros and kit it out with a dizzying array of weaponry. Go toe-to-toe with enemy aces or assault giant flying aircraft carriers and battleships, but watch out for volleys of missiles; when you die, you're dead.


It's gotten very good reviews all around so far, so it could be an ideal game to pick up for the weekend!

This looks really good, but do you know what would make it sooooo much better? A Captain Scarlet themed mod.

I bought it on itch.io a long time ago. Pretty good game!

Reminds me of Afterburner.

I noticed, it's using Untiy 5.6, but at the same time it's not using Vulkan. Is it something developers need to enable in their build?

I tried with -force-vulkan. but it doesn't really work. Or at least it's not clear if it does. It seems to load Vulkan lib (which strace shows), but loaded process shows that its bound to radeonsi_dri.so.

UPDATE:

Ah, OK. It is using Vulkan!

cat /proc/$(pidof skyrogue.x86)/maps | grep vulkan ... /opt/mesa-master/x86/libvulkan_radeon.so ... /opt/mesa-master/x86/libvulkan_radeon.so ... /opt/mesa-master/x86/libvulkan_radeon.so ... /opt/mesa-master/x86/libvulkan_radeon.so ... /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libvulkan.so.1.0.54 ... /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libvulkan.so.1.0.54 ... /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libvulkan.so.1.0.54 ... /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libvulkan.so.1.0.54
