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: Monkey Head Nebula (April Exploration Days 11 – 12)

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…
