Flat Universe is a fast paced top-down space shooter. The action takes place in the Wing Commander universe by Chris Roberts and Origin Systems. You will fly and fight your way through a seamless universe of interconnected star-systems either by playing the single player campaign, by creating your own with the builtin mission editor or by fighting against (or along) your friends in relentless online battles.

WC: Flat Universe new version is out!


The latest version of WC: Flat Universe is available for download; just visit the download section of this page or visit the project's home page Daedalus station and grab your copy.

But what this version update is all about?

Vast Improvements

  • The whole graphics engine has been upgraded and except from the spectacular upgraded graphics there is a great improvement in fps performance.
  • A whole new scene is now online for the users. The barracks is now the initial scene of the game and the place where a pilot registers and manages his account (save, load, preferences).
  • The hangar deck and control room of Daedalus are no more empty spaces. There are animated characters around. New take off and landing cut-scenes have also been added.

But the best part of all are the additional features:

  • 8 new training missions across four very diverse environments have been added with a performance report at the end of every mission
  • 14 new unique systems have been created and added to the game-play. NavMap, Nav system and Autopilot are fully functional, the player is no more lost in space with best addition of all...
  • Jump drive. Now you can take the transport for a free flight and explore the world of Flat Universe, jumping from system to system. The player can enjoy the graphics and have an extended taste of the game-play.
  • It is our most stable distribution after extensive debugging and performance fixes. However, there was one draw back to one of the features that we included on our previous release and that is the automatic patching system. From now and on we will continue our distribution with the old favorite, download the whole package. We are very sorry for the inconvenience if we have brought any to you but it seems that this feature will have to wait for the time being.
  • Last but not least there is an in-flight screenshot function. Now, you can grab the most glorious moments of your flight experience by hitting F12 and the screenshot will be saved into your Flat Universe saves folder.

Hi, any news on the game?

We are really sorry for our long absence from IndieDB. From the start of this year we did make a very long jump with our development progress and since we are only two who are working on it we decided two boost the development and leave the forums aside for while. As a matter of fact in a few days, not allowed to say exact day, the 0.8.5 version will be released.
Therefore we have uploaded some images showing off our enhanced graphics!

We are very sorry for the inconvenience but it was for the projects greater good.

Stay tuned!

Do you plan to make the spaceship be controlled with the mouse? (At least the aiming, the throttle could be controlled by keyboard)

As a matter of fact, mouse wasn't in our spectrum of input devices but the space-flight module of the game is built in a way that we can implement it very easily.
We'll give it as an option in the next update and you could give feedback to us.

I keep getting killed before I have any chance to see the enemy :( Also turning of the players spaceship is a bit slow.

But as a preview it is fine.

Thanks for the feedback. Yeah we know about the difficulty and we are already working at it.
We are going to release monthly updates with changes based on the players' input (and adding new ships and missions of course) while at the mean time we are working on the multiplayer module.

Thanks again!

Well it is still in alpha and we have done no gameplay balancing yet. We will be releasing monthly updates and at the next update we will adjust the difficulty level.

Thanks for the feedback
