Space Games

I owned an Amiga A600 and anticipated owning Frontier: Elite II hugely, watching a rolling demo of the intro sequence movie from the coverdisk of CU Amiga (Nov. 1993) as I went to bed at night! The game was given to me that following Christmas, and I never really looked back, continuing to play the game in some form until 2014!

Elite II really was an amazing game, because although I played through the Wing Commander series, the X series by Egosoft, and even EVE Online, I always went back to Elite.

Despise initial concerns from me during the Kickstarter campaign about timing, I am actively playing Elite: Dangerous, the long-awaited game from David Braben. With ED I actually once again feel like I can escape life.

I also backed Star Citizen on Kickstarter, this game from Chris Roberts (of Wing Commander), and I'm quite excited to see where that goes with both the Squadron 42 single player and multiplayer versions of that.

 

Elite Journal: Clear Trade Routes in Okinura

The Okinura Community Goal seemed simple enough: Collect on some WANTED status ships and profit. Reality? Not so much. I found myself under attack, for no reason that I can still understand, by another Commander. Still, I made a tidy profit when things were all said and done…

Edit: managed to catch up with the Commander later on, and he was working to protect his fellow criminals; how interesting to see that!
