The Official "Infinite Space" thread - Arm torpedoes......FIRE!
Infinite Space is the new upcoming DS Space Opera/Spaceship building sim by Sega/Platinum games, creators of Madworld and Bayonetta.
Infinite Space is a science fiction role-playing video game that allows the player to design and control a spaceship. The player can customize the ship with over 150 different design models, along with over 150 possible crewmembers. After designing a ship, the player can explore an expansive game world with a story spanning two galaxies. Characters seen in the game will be displayed in 2D, while ships, exploration, and battles will all be in 3D.
The player navigates the ship using the Nintendo DS touchscreen by first choosing a destination, then engaging the engines to move towards that destination. Spaceship battles occur in real-time, with attacks utilizing a "command gauge" feature. As the command gauge builds up, the player can use it to perform attacks against an enemy ship. The rate at which the command gauge fills depends on the crew of the ship, so a more skilled crew will increase the capabilities of a ship. When the player boards an enemy ship, the player takes control of their character to fight through the ship.
In the game, multiplayer is available for two-player spaceship battles over local Wi-Fi.
Infinite Space was stated to be based on the novel Childhood's End by Arthur C. Clarke. The plot is divided into two main storylines: One follows the life of a young crewman named Yuri who works to become a spaceship captain, and the other focuses on "very high-level, philosophical science fiction stuff." Through the course of the story, the player will discover humanity's role in the universe.
Huge RPG, epic Space Opera story, Spaceship building with the same deep detail that you usually find in an Armored Core or Gran Turismo, hire your crew, space battles, WIFI space battles, ship take overs....there is too much awesome to not care about this game!
