yesterday in outer space
"Dropping out of hyperspace, you lay course for Lagrange Station. Suddenly, the klaxon screams out a warning. Two Darts and a Corsair, closing fast. Pirates! You roll hard to avoid the incoming plasma torps. One hits, knocking down your rear shield. Spinning to protect your stern, you launch a heat seaker. Direct hit: the Corsair bursts into shards. Stunned, the Darts run for deep space. Later, over a pint of Rigelian in the Lagrange cantina, you listen as a bounty hunter tells of the Scarlet Brotherhood, the most notorious band of Pirates in the Far Arm. You hope it wasn't one of their Corsairs you vaporized out there..."
This sounds very familiar, doesn't it? "Yes!", you will probably say, "That's Privateer!" Many games come to mind, from Wing Commander to X2 or Freelancer. Actually, this game is the roots, where all the others ORIGINate from, it's Space Rogue!
Thanks to Vanshilar, we have another of these constitutive classics on site. Not only he submitted the game, he's also put it in shape with Walkthroughs, Maps and Editing Guidelines. Excellent work, Vanshilar! posted by Chris // 09-05-2009 // downloadable // game // Action // permalink
