Embersol Mercenaries is an independently developed multiplayer space shooter featuring capital ship battles, perma-death PVP, mercenary squads, and more...
New build out today with balance updates and quite a few bugs fixed. Thanks to everyone who submitted bug reports and gave feedback! Pilot primary weapons have been increased to help take out other pilots. Missile damages were also a bit too high and, combined with a bug that would sometimes cause the damage to by applied twice, made them way overpowered. Drone subsystems for flagships should be more useful now with roughly double the damage and shield hitpoints. The full changelog along with download links are below. Thanks for playing and feel free to send any feedback my way.
