Captain Forever Remix Ft. Deano T & B-Chain [Danny B Cut]

By Alice O'Connor on May 2nd, 2014.

This certainly appears to be quite a different art style.

The song remix: giving us banging new takes on songs we love, banal ‘club remix’ filler for singles, and sometimes smashing the original to pieces. Game remixes are a bit more rare but we have had some real wonders like Pac-Man Championship Edition DX (not forgetting the unofficial squillions made by indies who carefully dodge copyright infringement). Now Pixelsaurus Games have announced Captain Forever Remix, an “officially-licensed reimagining” of Farbs’s fine ship-building space shooter Captain Forever. It’s ace source material, but what’s the remix mixing up?

Hooray For Random Indie Discounting!

By Alec Meer on October 21st, 2011.

A war of geometries

This falls into something of a grey area between trad. RPS posts and the Bargain Bucket, but I’m going to do it anyway because my last post was a trailer for a ludicrously high-budget first-person shooter and, were I to be struck down by lightning or a panther attack or angry Heroes of Might & Magic fans in the next half-hour, I don’t want that to be my legacy.

So, just a note that Farbs’ splendid Captain Forever quasi-trilogy has seen its pricetag shot down from $20 to a mere $9 – which also gets you all future updates in the adventure-tinged arena shooter series. It also includes a new build of the in-development third title Captain Jameson, which gets all RPGy. “This is an as-long-as-it’s-profitable sale, so as soon as income (sales x price) drops below regular levels the sale will end. If the games sell well enough then the sale could go on indefinitely, but it could also end tomorrow,” sez Farbs. Farbs, incidentally, is now part of the team making Card Hunter – whose latest news I shall post shortly.

Viva Forever: Captain Forever Again

By Kieron Gillen on January 7th, 2010.

MINIMALIST CHIC

I’ve wanted to post about this again for a while, but it’s non-inclusion in the IGF has given me motivation. I’ve still not been able to totally put my back into it, but it’s the sort of game which strikes me is exactly what certain of you are looking for. It’s a Sinistar-esque shooter, but with a sandbox design based around constructing your own ship from the parts of your fallen opponents. You can go and look at it here play the sort of limited demo, consider throwing down money for access to Captain Successor, but there’s also some videos available which sort of show its vibe far better…

The Result of all that Shipbuilding: Captain Forever

By Kieron Gillen on September 16th, 2009.

Sexy pink
I’ve been meaning to go back and prod at this determinedly some more for a while, but Brandon Boyer mentioning it in his round-up of Indie Hotness makes me think I should just plug it and then bully Quinns into having a nose when he comes over later. As it’s totally his sort of thing. Anyway, you know Farbs? Developer of the brilliant Rom Check Fail? Writer of the best I-quit statement in development history when he left 2K Australia? He’s just started betaing his first commercial game, Captain Forever which is basically Asteroids meets Gratuitous Space Battles (inspired by Battleships Forever, natch). You fly around, shooting things. With the things you shoot off, you stick to your ship and turn into an enormoship with hyperguns. Footage and more stuff beneath the cut…
