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.

Ensign-1 has been update with new sound effects! Dr. Piranha has given us custom sound effects for almost all the sounds in game! Here, check out this video showing you what it's like!


In addition to the sound effects, various other improvements have also been added. The mouse controls have been improved further and the AI has been tweaked to not be quite as amazing at leading a target.

The plasma gun has also been redesigned to look a little bit cooler!

New Game Direction


After considerable deliberation of the situation at hand (Waterworld reference), I have decided to take Ensign-1 in a new direction. I'm going to turn the game into more of an online open world experience. The current single player missions will still be left in as practice scenarios or such, but the core game will have players connecting to multiplayer servers and exploring randomly generated solar systems, with enemies randomly spawning in for players to kill. Be on the lookout for that coming out in the next month or so!
