The Music of the Spheres

The Music of the Spheres

What is SpaceEngine? It’s not a game: you don’t fight alien armadas or rescue a space princess from the vilest gangster in the galaxy. Its not a simulator: you don’t balance how much hydrogen you have left in your tanks as you try to circularize your elliptical orbit. It’s just the raw experience of deep space in all of its wonder and majesty.

I′ve always imagined exploring the distant stars, coasting though Saturn’s rings, viewing the deadly heart of the galaxy or the burning ember of a super-nova. Now you can see it. Other planets, stars, exo-planets, black holes, other galaxies. It’s all here.

I would go into more detail: but there are stars that need exploring…

Gratuitous Spacebattles 2 is coming!

Gratuitous Spacebattles is a wonderful game from Positech Games that consists of designing fleets of space ships and then you give orders and then sitting back and watching the battle play out. The battle plays out and you get to watch in all its gratuitously beautiful eye candy as the ships blast away at each other. Gratuitous Spacebattles 2 promises to be more of the same, but even explodier! (Yes that is now a word!)
