Capital Spaceship Combat: Fractured Space

The three coolest things to pilot in space battles are, in no particular order: mecha; capital ships; and EVE Online's Rifter. Edge Case Games was formed by folks behind Strike Suit Zero so they've dabbled with the first, and that third is off-limits, so here they are with capital ships in Fractured Space, the first game from their new studio. It's a five-versus-five multiplayer capital…

“Definitive” Director’s Cut for Strike Suit Zero

Strike Suit Zero, to use a perfect term, is my jam. Sci-fi? Check. Space Transformers? Check. Almost comical disregard for the sanctity of life and natural resources? Check. It's bombastic, beautiful insanity that, to my eternal anger, proved rather unplayable on my aging hulk of a machine. Nathan proved measurably harder to impress a year ago, which may in part by why things have ended…

Mods In Spaceeeee: Strike Suit Zero Steam Workshop

Showing off your mod tools by modding your own game seems like a bit of a cheat to me. It would be like me showing you how easy it was to write a hilarious and witty SEO-filled RPS post by writing a hilarious and witty RPS SEO-filled post, because you'd expect that from me (and also ipad facebook jolie football gaga 22cans xboxone). But that's…

Was It Born Ready? Strike Suit Infinity Arrives April 30th

Enjoyed space-shooter Strike Suit Zero, did you? Well then, this news might excite or disappoint in equal measure: Born Ready Games send word that they're bringing out another Strike Suit game, although this one's a little simpler than you might have expected from a sequel, being a straightforward multiplier-driven score-chasing shoot 'em up. Strike Suit Infinity "has been designed to provide endless challenge for competitive…

Strike Suit Zero Gets Triple Monitor Cockpit View

The latest patch for space-combat blaster Strike Suit Zero looks like a cracker, with a much-demanded in-cockpit view (haha, cockpit is a funny word) which - like the game's other views - should apparently work well with a three-monitor setup. So that's fancy. In more practical news: the checkpoint system has been overhauled, the targeting systems has been reworked, and there are new difficulty levels.…

Feature: Spaced Out

Strike Suit Zero review

What would you do if some malevolent genie offered you the choice between either a) a rip-roaring, physics-defying spaceship, or b) a star-destroying giant robot? I would cry. Born Ready, though, presumably encountered that exact situation and decided to create an alternate reality in which they got both. In Strike Suit Zero, you play as a ship that transforms into a giant robot. Take that,…

Feature: There's No Place Like Homeworld

Interview: Homeworld Composer Paul Ruskay

David Valjalo peered into the auditory world of game soundtracks for us in a wide-ranging interview with former Relick-er Paul Ruskay. Homeworld is a milestone for space strategy sims. I'll wager that some time since its 1999 release NASA burned its entire archive of the original Star Trek series and replaced it with a single copy of the game in the section of its employee…

Feature: Restarting the thrusters of the mecha combat genre

Suits Who: Born Ready Games On Strike Suit Zero

Former Edge staffer and protein bar-lover David Valjalo marks his first appearance in our corner of the internet by chatting to Born Ready Games' leader designer Chris Redden about successfully Kickstartered mech/space combat game Strike Suit Zero. Discussed: the resurrection of a genre, the issues around meeting public promises, changes to the original plan, the rich UK developer Kickstarter backlash and if the wild success…

Heroic: Strike Suit Zero’s Kickstarter Success

Space-bot shooter Strike Suit Zero will be ready for release on January 24th after a stirring Kickstarter campaign ended with $174,804 in the kitty. I've never understood why people keep their money in cats, although I'd gladly secure my lifesavings in the tiny keg around a St Bernard's neck. They'd fit too, seeing as I currently keep the entire sum in my trouser pocket, and…

Robots In De Skies: Strike Suit Zero

It seems I'm going to have to live until 2299 to get to be a Transformer. Right now I'm limited to shouting "KEE KOO KAA KER CHAAA!" and waving my arms around, and while it looks bloody amazing, it's not quite the same. That's when Strike Suit Zero says we'll have colonised space, but also gone and made the silly mistake of having a war.…

It’s A Bird, It’s A Plane, It’s A Mech: Strike Suit Zero

In recent years, space shooters and mechs - once majestic and dominant creatures, loping across the PC landscape with tear-jerking grace - have become all but extinct. They live on the fringes now, only daring to sip from the old watering hole when military FPSes and MMOs are safely out of sight. But now, along comes Strike Suit Zero. It combines all of your favorite…

Feature: "transmogrifying technobeast"

Sizing Up: Strike Suit Zero Preview

RPS chum Paul Dean has been suited up for a look at Strike Suit Zero. What follows is his report. The game is set to be released on PC next summer. I’ve never been very into the giant mecha thing and my enjoyment of the genre is mostly limited to the deconstructivist, apocalyptic, existential angsting (no, really) that is Neon Genesis Evangelion. However, if you…

Might Suit Meer-o: Strike Suit Zero

You see what I was going for in that headline, right? Alec likes Transformers, and space stuff? And shooting? Right? Okay, well, anyway, the chaps at DoubleSix games send word that their next game is Strike Suit Zero. It's a space shooter in which you fly some kind of transforming space battle thingum, which is called a Strike Suit. DoubleSix claim this means "ludicrous firepower…
