Solar Crusaders on KickStarter™ Here’s our original article in prep for the campaign

Unlike similar games in the genre, Solar Crusaders utilizes an advanced agents system to populate the game universe with persistent computer controlled pirates, merchants, traders, smugglers, and more. The game will never feel empty or barren. Players will experience and explore features such as stars, moons, planets, asteroids, singularities, and even offers to colonize strategic locations. Each crew can be composed of five different races including Human, Monk, Plantoid, Robotic, and Creature, and each race will have their own appearance, behavior, and special ability; affording each a particular advantage in combat, diplomacy, or a wide variety of other possible enhancements. Crewmembers will be subject to perma-death, although this can be mitigated through insurance and cloning bays. Ships are highly configurable as well, with many systems being swappable and upgradable. Players must carefully manage resources including fuel, atmosphere, and ammunition, yet still perform specialized duties like piloting, engineering, weapons control, and more. Additional supplies and reinforcements are salvageable from discovered wrecks, created from resources or obtained from other NPCs or players. Solar Crusaders is a huge game with endless exploration and fun with its vast range of items, upgrades and resources.

Key Features:
● Open world space exploration with top-down tactical battles.

● Command and battle against multiple ships, with up to four ships under your command.

●  Colonize and exploit strategic locations by building space stations.

●  Participate in the simulated game economy by mining ores, refining fuels, or manufacturing ships, stations, and components.

●  Compete against other players and NPCs to develop faster and more powerful ships, and gain territory for your corporation.

Sounds pretty good to me. But of course let us know in the comments.
