In Ensign-1 you play the role of a space fighter pilot returning from a deep space colonization mission. On arrival back to our own solar system, you find Earth has been colonized by a hostile alien force. It's now up to you, with the help of your mothership, the Ensign-1, to take it back Ensign-1 allows allows for complete freedom in approaching objectives. You can fight from the safety of your spacecraft, or land and exit to explore space stations and carriers on foot. You can commandeer any spacecraft in the game, no matter how big or how small. Defend an asteroid base, or take the fight to the enemy with a huge mothership, friends manning turrets, it's your choice. The game also features a multiplayer mode where players can explore a randomly generated galaxy, either fighting co-operatively to clean out enemy fighters, or battling each other for supremacy.

Report article RSS Feed Because We May Sale

Because We May is a sale collective of developers from different websites, devices and genres that have set low prices for the last week of May. Why? Because they can.

Posted by INtense! on May 24th, 2012

Developer Independence is a fantastic thing. Being able to control the prices for your games needs to be celebrated. We here at DesuraNET believe that as a developer you should have the freedom to do as you please, and it seems we are not the only ones who share such ideals.


Because We May is a sale collective of developers from different websites, devices and genres that have set low prices for the last week of May. Why? Because they can.


Here are a few of our favorites and recommendations for you:

There are a few games which are on sale on Steam as part of BWM, but not on sale here for some reason. For example, Dungeons of Dredmor and Q.U.B.E.

On the site you had to select the specific section where your game is available. It wasn't really obvious at first that you could submit multiple times for different sections but hopefully developers will email in updates.

Didn't know about the last two in that list, thanks - they aren't on the BWM site.

Though the list is missing: Metagolf Desura.com and Silverquest Desura.com

Any developers that add their Desura games to Because We May (or even those already in it) are perfectly welcome to also come shout out about their game in our group's forums: Desura.com

I've been linking to that thread from elsewhere (it's had nearly 3,000 views if our group's stats are anything to go by), to get the word out about the Desura games participating in the event, as unfortunately Desura's (& other stores') participation wasn't initially well advertised by BWM.

So if you followed @Desura's tweet to this article, please retweet it & spread the good word... :)

There's three more:
Ballin Desura.com
Dreamscape Desura.com
LEVEL UP! Desura.com

Smiles HD was added to BWM's site, but Numen isn't appearing in the 'Others' section, but is listed under 'Steam'.
