I can’t wait to build spaceships again in Captain Forever Trilogy

The original Captain Forever, a browser-based game about blowing up hostile spaceships and nicking their parts to build your own, is a little bit special to me. Years back, it was my go to game in a school that had locked down access to most school-distraction providing websites – but I’d probably have played it for months on end even if the rest of the internet was open to me. Trying to destroy ships while also minimising damage to them was a blast, and improvising new designs from the resulting debris blended creativity with resourcefulness in a way that was deeply satisfying.

All of that made the upcoming launch of Captain Forever Trilogy excellent news to wake up to on a bleary Friday. It’s a revamped version of the original game, its sequel (not Captain Forever: Remix) and its clone-creating spin off, with some fancy new wing modules and the minimalist story fleshed out and re-rewritten by Cassandra Khaw.

Build Shoot Loot Build: Captain Forever Remix Released

Scavenging my zapped foes’ ships for parts to snap onto my own hulking monstrosity was a lark in Captain Forever, and I like the look of Captain Forever Remix [official site] even more. Not just for that new gorgeous cartoony art style.

Pew Pew: Watch Nine Minutes Of Captain Forever Remix

A new gameplay trailer shows off nine minutes of Captain Forever Remix [official site] and its gorgeous, bold, and slightly gross cartoon art style. The core Captain Forever kill-loot-build-kill loop still looks ace, but now it’s picked up persistent progression and fancy new items. Come see!

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

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?
