Strike Suit Zero: Heroes of the Fleet Reviewed

March 10th - via: cliqist.com
When I finished Strike Suit Zero’s first campaign, I was a little underwhelmed by the game’s diversity of gameplay and overall personality, but the game itself was so close to being everything I’d ever hoped for, so when I was given the chance to review the game’s main DLC, Heroes of the Fleet, I was excited to see what new gameplay elements developers Born Ready had in store. Was I disappointed? Was it just more of the same? Long story short, no, it was a marked improvement. Long story long, however… (Read More)

Review – Strike Suit Zero

February 3rd - via: cliqist.com
When I was a kid, I loved Crimson Skies. We had it all, my mom’s boyfriend would bring over his fancy joystick and his throttle (there’s no less weird way to say it) and I’d fly into the ground time and time again resting assured that eventually the game would give up and just let me win. Needless to say, I was not good at flying because gravity got the best of me and, subsequently, the ground got the better of me. Things have changed drastically. First of all, we’ve nixed the concepts of “gravity” and “the ground”, which is a great start for me. (Read More)

Post Mortem of a Kickstarter campaign (Strike Suit Zero)

June 26th - via: gamasutra.com
I have promised to write a post-mortem on the Strike Suit Zero Kickstarter for a while now. I haven’t done so for many reasons, but the main one was that I wanted to have the game out and most of the rewards delivered before doing so. The fact that the game has been released is one of the most interesting points here, and a good way to get a complete view of what the Kickstarter did for the game beyond the campaign. (Read More)

Kickstarter Is a Full-Time Job

January 16th - via: gamespot.com
Running a Kickstarter campaign is easy, right? All you have to do is make a quick video, toss in a few bullet points, make up some pricing tiers, and wait for the money train to reach the station. Not exactly. Executing a successful campaign is a full-time responsibility that demands constant input from the author(s). If you have ever considered launching one of your own, or are just curious about the process, consider these insights from five teams who have weathered the Kickstarter storm. (Read More)

Kickstarter Katchup

November 2nd - via: rockpapershotgun.com
The British are coming! Lock up your tea, crumpets, biscuits, mild sexual innuendo and depressing postcards of empty beaches, because the toodle-pipping rotters need all that and more to fuel their infernal game-machines. The beginning of the Britstarter era brings a great deal of tempting prospects for your perusal – for starters, we’ve got the spirit of Bullfrog, the sequel to The Ship, a martial arts masterclass, dark fantasies and a dash of tweedpunk robo-horror. Never change, fair isles of wonder, never change. (Read More)

Strike Suit Zero Preview: Dogfighting with a difference

October 30th - via: pcgamesn.com
Gamers of a certain age will remember that the PC used to be the home of many a classic space combat game. X-Wing, TIE Fighter and Wing Commander were among the most famous (and you’re surely aware by now that the latter’s creator has a new project), and even the X-COM series had a crack with X-COM: Interceptor. Sadly, the genre fell into decline and was almost forgotten, but Guildford-based Born Ready Games aims to change that with Strike Suit Zero, a title that mixes space combat, giant robots and some of the biggest starships you’ve ever seen. (Read More)
