This little video is a demonstration of the different ways of flying your ships around, and of course you can combine all mechanics the way you want.

After the theory, here comes the live test! Everything is doing well so far on controls, we implemented enough parameters and tweaks in the designs to do a test run. Believe me when I say the first ships we tried are a real fun to fly around!

Of course this is only the first stage, and the gameplay is not there.. yet. But when you do a Space Sim, you have to make it right. In Tannhauser Gates we want the game to be one third action, one third tactic, one third long run strategic.

Yes there will be energy management.

Yes there will be ship rigging to get the best tools and crew hiring to improve your chances of success before going on missions. But on the top of that you want to test your skills as a pilot, and get your heart pumping in the middle of the action!

The video also showcase three different type of Light Fighter engines, three slightly different ways of flying, your choice, always.
