Skyfire is a space combat action adventure game that is trying to follow in the footsteps of titles such as Tie Fighter and X-Wing vs Tie Fighter.
Gamers will be thrown into a space campaign starting out as a cadet, and eventually working their way up through the ranks to save the solar system from destruction. Skyfire will contain two unique story lines from both sides of the conflict, an instant battle feature for those whom just want a quick dogfight, and a multiplayer dog-fighting mode to battle your friends online.
Ever since I played the games mentioned above, I've been inspired to capture the simplicity and beauty that those simulators gave to me. Skyfire isn't aiming to be the next huge sandbox survival game or even the next cutting edge graphics display. We are focusing on the core gameplay, missions, and unique story lines that will deliver the best experience to you... the customer. We want you to have fun!
We hope that this has at least caught your attention or has you interested in seeing more. We look forward to the release of Skyfire and we hope you do as well.

For Skyfire, I want certain ( when appropriate ) battles to be massive. I want it to feel like a real war, exciting, and chaotic.
This is why I've spent so much time on trying to optimize the game for large amounts of ships in general. Here is the first run of testing. Please excuse the sound and lighting issues:
Not all missions are going to be some huge battle, over and over. Even when there is a huge battle, you may not even be trying to "destroy them all." I hope this excited you guys a bit for the scale I'm going for. It was really great seeing all of the craziness this test proved was possible.
Like something you see? Hate something? Give me feedback! Thanks for checking out Skyfire.
The past few weeks have been great for Skyfire development. I've been working on re-factoring the ship AI, creating interactive menu scenes, and honing...
