Good luck with that. I don't even wanna ask what Northstar would cost along with SOTSHD.

Well actually now would be agood time to ask. Would Northstar be anything like Between the Stars?

Well now I don't know which one I want more... SOTSHD or Northstar.

Well you are unlikely to get the latter anytime before the former, so.... ;)

Well Between the Stars is a pretty solid game for being made by two guys. Has crew management and crew combat as well as great ship to ship combat. Also has a good story. If Northstar is better than that in all aspects...yeah I'm interested!

But I'm fine with SOTSHD too.

So are you saying that they're not doing as good of a job as they could if they went at it full time..or they should be further along? Or are they not going through enough hardship to be called true indies?

Very small, part time operations are one of the easiest and best ways to make a small to medium sized niche game.

That explains why I'm seeing so many of them lately on Steam. That Stellar Tactics, Spacebourne and Astrox Imperium to name a few.

Yep its pretty optimal, especially if you go easy on graphics and render engine.

OMG could this be true??

viewtopic.php?f=96&t=27877&p=385285#p385285

Hell, I still play SotS Prime to this day! I'd love to see a HD version...
