Omega Team presents:
Continuation of award winning games Conflict: FreeSpace and FreeSpace 2


Once again, the GTVA is in turmoil. The aftermath of Capella, 20 years ago, has manifested in widespread unhappiness throughout the Terran and Vasudan populace. However, political strife and scheming have begun to decay the established government from the inside out. As a new Vasudan leadership emerges, a breakaway faction forms - the Vasudan Reformation Camp.

Immediately, the GTVA is plunged into yet another full-scale war against a well-equipped, separatist force intent on destruction on a galactic scale - But this is not even half the story. Behind the fog of war, hidden in the shadows, the Security Council plans its next move. And as the way back to the Terran homeworld is becoming clear, the end of all civilization rises up over the horizon.

Status Update
We've been reworking the mission scripts and other design features of the actual game storyline, and we're glad to say that the campaign is coming along smoothly. The rework of the scripts have added a new level of depth to the storytelling narrative; and what's more it's seriously sped up the development progress for our mission creators.

Ships
GTB Hera
The GTB Hera is the heaviest Terran bomber, with a formidable array of no less than 10 forward mass-driver or particle hardpoints, and three point-defense turrets. But of course, that's only the half of it, as you can fit hundreds of short-range rockets or dozens of high-yield antimatter warheads into its enormous missile tubes. Created by blowfish, with maps courtesy of FreeSpaceKing.

(please note that these are only renders, they're not in-game shots)

Cutscenes
This is not a prerendered cutscene. By utilizing the powerful cutscene simulation functions added by the FreeSpace SCP team, we are able to use the game engine itself for certain plot sequences. In the future, we may even create interactive cutscenes and quicktime events.

Stay Tuned!
That's all for today folks. However, with progress accelerating on all fronts due to the summer holidays, expect much bigger updates in the future.

Well, there was a demo release - But honestly it's outdated and very buggy. THe plot changed since the old demo release so I don't recommend to play. Although if you still want to play it check our our forum here (http://game-warden.com/forum/forumdisplay.php?f=74) and enjoy the demo. Any feedback over the forums would be appreciated as well as some activity over there. Remember that Earth Defense is connected with FreeSpace and FreeSpace 2 plot.

SHORT VERSION:
Earth Defence is alive and what we have coming is ten times better than the demo.

LONG VERSION:
Much has happened since the last post or news update.

We've lost and gained team members since February. Mobius has joined as a mission creator, I as a general sound engineer, and (most recently) Daddy Warhol as a music composer. Many of the first members are presently missing for reasons unknown. The plot has undergone rewriting and revision to iron out cliches and make the story more realistic and enjoyable. The DEMO release is no longer an indicator of the mod's quality, as much has improved since then. Expect new ships, new weapons, and new audio.

We're still alive. Earth Defence will come and it will be awesome.
