Leaving the blackness of the Outer Arm Vacuus behind me, I set off back towards the Monkey Head Nebula, travelling over the Crab Nebula by quite some distance. It was a simple journey, broke up by the discovery of yet another Earth-like world.
Finally, after what seemed like weeks I’d been away, I arrived back within range of a Nebula that can be seen from populated systems…
Monkey Head Nebula has a number of planets you can land on that are within it’s wonderous lighting display, there are also a number of them you can crash into… I almost met my fate there…
My first space game addiction was with David Braben's 'Frontier - Elite II' released in 1993 on the Commodore Amiga. This game actually gave me so much of what I wanted in a game that I continued to play it until the 'Elite - Dangerous' release in 2014.
I also played through the 'Wing Commander' series from Chris Roberts, enjoying them immensely. This led directly to my support of his 2012 crowdfunding campaign for the Star Citizen and Squadron 42 games that are still in development.
I use space games to try to escape from the pressures of real life. I occasionally upload or stream gameplay to YouTube and Twitch.
