For this series, I’d like to talk briefly about up-and-coming or little-known games which I think seem cool. The first is Star Citizen, a crowd-funded independently-published Open-World space MMO.
Set about 800 years in the future, Star Citizen lets you create your own story and experiences through a variety of missions, careers, professions and skills. You can earn “credits” and build a fleet of ships to start your own cargo company, buy weapons and carry out Spec Ops missions, and so much more.
The game’s art style reminds me of a blend of Star Wars and Firefly. The ships have a realistic and sometimes clunky feel to them. Right now all we have is videos of the “hangar module,” and early-access preview for early supporters.
Overall, I’d say it’s too early to make a call on Star Citizen but it’s visually stunning and awesome in concept. I certainly have high hopes for it and will be keeping an eager eye on it.
