Etherium Is An RTS, Like In The Old Days

By Alec Meer on January 17th, 2014.

A real-time strategy game, eh? [A bushy eyebrow raised cautiously, revealing a tired but interested eye.] We don’t get many of your kind around these parts. Not since… [A silence. A stare towards the horizon.] Well, we don’t like to talk about it. Those were hard times. Dark times. [Another silence. Another stare, this time at nothing, or at least nothing anyone else can see]. Anyway, used to be you couldn’t move for RTSes. Tanks everywhere, all commandin’ and a’conquerin’. Feels… feels like a lifetime ago. Were they better days? I don’t rightly know. [A gnarled finger reaching up to a suddenly heavy-lidded eye, to wipe away – dust? A tear? A memory?] Different times, that’s what they were.

[A sharp intake of breath, a straightening of the spine, a gleam in the eye.] Any road, here you are, an honest-to-god real time strategy game, stood right there in front of me. Etherium, they call you? Ah, you’ll be one of those science fiction ones then, eh? All robots and deathrays, eh? [A hearty chuckle]. Well, don’t just stand there, let’s take a look at you.

Out Of The Beta Quadrant: Stellar Impact

By John Walker on April 12th, 2012.

Background: REAL! (except for the colours)

The best thing about space is that it’s real. It may or may not be filled with aliens and warring spaceships, but the setting, the background, is actually there! All those galaxies – that’s not pretend from out of a book. As much as you may doubt me, they’re really all up there (and down, and some on the left too. We are of course on the far right of space). Space is the setting chosen for Stellar Impact, the intergalactic strategalatic DOTA-ish multiplayer, and despite our reviewing it in January, it’s out today.

Stellar Impact Is Still Worth Exploring

By Jim Rossignol on December 15th, 2011.


It’s all space, space, space with you today, Internet. In fact I thought I’d add to that with a sort of reminder post to point to excellent multiplayer spaceship duelling game, Stellar Impact, which you can play for free up to a point (the point at which you have to pay to unlock the later character-advancement possibilities of the game.) Annoyingly, the site died the last time I linked to it, but the game is so good that I wanted to make sure you guys had a chance to take another look. This is definitely one game that could do with a few more people playing it.

Shiny new trailer below.

Space Free For All: Stellar Impact

By Jim Rossignol on October 12th, 2011.

Space for free. Free. Space.
If you were brave/lucky enough to attend our Indie Arcade at the Eurogamer Expo then you might have noticed the quietly majestic Stellar Impact, which is a rather accomplished-looking PvP starship combat game. It’s really quite the thing: somewhere between MOBA-style play and classic ship-to-ship naval warfare, with you having out-manoeuvre your opponent, bring a broadside to bear, and so on. What’s more is that it has a sort of infinite demo, whereby you can play the game for free, but can’t level up your stuff without the full version. Neat! I’ve posted the trailer and also Total Biscuit’s blathering about it below. Go take a look!

UPDATE: Sigh, looks like their site broke as I posted this.
