If you like massively multiplayer fast action addictive top down shooting games, then this is the game for you. This project will begin open beta testing soon so check us out. :)

Networking update 3

Well it is a great start for the server. We have started our first real test of the server framework and it is functioning just awesomely. The servers ability to handle latency (lag) is better then expected easily handling average lags in the 225+ millisecond range and allowing the clients to render ships smoothly. For a 'twich' style game that is a huge step forward. About half of my beta testers are in the Europe (I am in the USA) so even with the lags involved the game still plays well. Ideally I will have servers setup in the USA and Europe for lower latency. I am shooting for clients to have an average 150 milliseconds or lower on a client. At that low of a latency it is just butter smooth and very accurate .

I will be working on better handling of packet loss to improve game play and client rendering of ships. I am very happy to have the server working and on its way. As soon as I fix a few bugs and make a few changes I will post a video of game play.

Thanks for supporting Phoenix USC,

I think there might be, it's something my beta team and I are discussing now. I like the Idea of three to four factions being established to join on signup. I will keep you posted on what I decide but factions are looking possible and can fit in well with a style of league play.

Thanks for tracking Phoenix USC. :D

@ liamdawe

Thanks. :D

Linux support is on the way. I will be going with a headless Linux server so I will be compiling for Linux very soon. In fact Linux support for me is a must! As it is the last open development OS/Kernel we have left.

I have already done a test compile on Debian 64bit and all running fine so look for a Linux client soon after the Windows client.

It's so awesome to see a game inspired by SubSpace. I've always wanted to make a spiritual successor to that game.
