Shadow Empire

Just saw this announcement on the Matrix site.  Not a lot of detail but interesting none the less. https://www.matrixgames.com/game/shadow-empire?fbclid=IwAR0P8y86DUL1f1gKCnGFt2dXE7zoHgqPZkrfchtXeA4zkBB9VdsUPxJydto

Now THIS one I am interested in. I have been keeping an eye on the Dev's website for it for a long time. Originally I think it had some fantasy elements. It looks like the development process has taken it off in directions not originally considered.

OK then. Mildly interested, DC: Outer Space could be a winner. As long as there are no Space Nazis or Porgs, I'm in.

What do you mean "No Space Nazis"? Space Nazis are awesome! You can kill Space Nazis all day and still sleep with a happy face each night.

Interested. If I can do something like Hammer's Slammers or Ogre or even Apocalypse Wars I'm in.

I'm generally not a fan of post-apocalyptic settings, but this one actually looks interesting.

Yeah this does look promising.  Supports multiplayer too, nice.  Any indication of a release date at all?

Saw a preview of this at... oh, Rayfer got it already.  O0

Could be good.

The WH40K (30K? 20K?) Unification Wars module should be great!  >:D

The moistening of the loins has been procedurally generated.

Seldom do I see a title and think to myself, "Wow, that's really something that looks kinda new!"  Consider me intrigued!

What about Space Nazi Porgs?
They could be pretty awesome.

Definitely on my radar now. Unlike our good friend Martok, anything post-apocalypse is a big draw for me. And to have solid developers who have done such excellent work in the past is a huge plus. I'm also glad to see we're not talking huge irradiated bugs or mutated humans, aka Fallout (although I do love me some Fallout) but rather that most dangerous of animals, humans in survival mode.

All in all....could be really solid. Bring it on.
