Description

According to conspiracy theorists, Solar Warden is an ultra-secret project that maintains a fleet of spaceships that are operating primarily within Earth's Orbit and around our solar system. Some say they’re defending us against alien threats. Solar Warden is a Six-Degrees-of-Freedom space shooter combined with an overarching campaign with real time strategy elements - jump into your fighter and combat the silicoid menace up close, while you command and dispatch the Solar Warden fleet for reinforcements as you see fit.

History

After working in the AAA industry for over 10 years and also creating the total conversion mod for Crysis - MechWarrior: Living Legends, we felt it was time to develop our own game titles. Especially now, it seems like this is the time where you don’t need 300+ people to make a game anymore. More and more we saw small teams of 1 to 6 developers making outstanding independent titles. This has inspired us to do the same and create Polar Zenith, a stand alone Indie Development company that will create fun and exciting game titles for any Core gamer to enjoy. With also our love for games like Freelancer and Descent and our love for Aerospace Combat from MWLL, we wanted to create our own IP that brings back that same space dogfighting feel while giving our own spin on the genre.

Features

  • Six Degrees of Freedom space combat
  • Command a fleet via Real Time Strategy elements
  • Co-Op Campaign with up to 3 friends
  • Engage in Diplomatic agreements and missions with countries from around the world
  • Damage to Planet Earth is persistent throughout the entire campaign
  • Research, Develop, Advance new and exciting technologies
  • Fully Voiced Characters throughout the Campaign

  • "As far as I'm concerned, you can never have too many space combat games, and Solar Warden's creative blend of traditional dogfighting action and Descent-style 6-Degrees-Of-Freedom shooting seems pretty exciting."
