That’s Angels Fall First: Planetstorm, to give it is full overwrought title. This was an enormously ambitious UT3 mod that came third in MakeSomethingUnreal, and is now being coverted over to UDK for possible indie release. Comrade Rob Hale noted that there’s a demo (with bot support) up over at the UDK showcase, and it’s quite the showcase: fighters attacking enormous capital ships on one level, and an infantry-led vehicular assault on the other. AFFP is a combat game that encompasses space combat and ground warfare, complete with a range of sci-fi military hardware, ship-boarding assaults, and vehicular spectacle. I’ve had a bit of a play with the demo and you can see that the game remains a work in progress – plenty of rough edges – but also that it’s one of those games that is just aiming for the stars. Perhaps, with a bit of support, they’ll get there. Worth a download if you want to investigate what they’re up to, anyway. (Most recent trailer below.)
