Fate of the Galaxy is a Space Simulator game, where the player takes the role of a starfighter pilot through a series of missions in a story campaign. A multiplayer mode will also be available. The game is primarily played through the perspective of single-manned craft, and there are no plans for control of capital ships or multi-player vehicles. Most missions will be set in space, though atmospheric missions are planned as well in later releases.

The player will choose to play as either a pilot for the Rebel Alliance (later the New Republic) or the Galactic Empire. Each side will have its own unique ships to control. Story missions will also include neutral factions such as pirates or smugglers.

From our forum:

Fate of the Galaxy has reached the stage of development where we need voice acting for our pilot personas! These are the automatically triggered lines that wingmen deliver in the heat of battle or when the player issues orders.

If you are interested in helping us out with your voice, please record these lines:

• All Clear - "We're all clear."
• Arrive Enemy - "Enemies on scope."
• Attack My Target - "Copy, engaging target."
• Backup - "Backup standing by."
• Red/Beta Arrived - "Red group, standing by." / "Beta wing on station."
• Check your six - "You've got one on your tail!"
• Death - "Aaaaaaaah!"
• Gold/Delta Arrived - "Gold group, standing by." / "Delta wing on station."
• Depart - "Acknowledged. I'm heading home."
• Disable My Target - "Targeting engines only."
• Disarm My Target - "Target acquired, disarming."
• Engage Enemy - "I'm going in."
• Gray/Epsilon Arrived - "Gray group, standing by." / "Epsilon wing on station."
• Green/Gamma Arrived - "Green group, standing by." / "Gamma wing on station."
• Help - "I can't shake him!"
• Ignore My Target - "All yours."
• No - "Negative."
• No Target - "My scope's clear."
• Friendly Fire - "Watch your aim!"
• Player Dead - "Pilot down!"
• Praise Player Kill - "Good shot!"
• Praise Own Kill - "I got him!"
• Praise Player Getting Multiple Kills - "The Force is with you!"
• Rearm - "Secondary banks depleted."
• Need Repair - "I've taken heavy damage!"
• Stray/AWOL/Desertion Warning - "You're headed the wrong way."
• Traitor - "Traitor!"
• Yes - "I copy."

Feel free to ad lib lines that could be used in place of these as well. If the team decides to use your voice, you will be contacted to record some alternate takes so that all of the pilots have a healthy number of unique messages. Please do record both the Rebel (colors) and Imperial (Greek letters) versions of the arrival lines so that we can use your voice for either side.

The team reserves the right to use any voice acting samples sent to us (with credit) in any way we see fit for the game. This is mostly important in case we can't contact someone who provided samples but want to use them in the game anyway.

Make sure that any voice acting you send to us is as clear as possible. Each of the lines should be in a separate 16bit 44khz stereo wav file. The entire set should then be archived (preferably rar or 7zip) before emailing them to fotgvoices [AT] googlemail.com. Please do not send mp3 files as the game doesn't recognize this format.

A big thanks to Karajorma for letting us rip this post off from the one he made on the Diaspora forum. Good luck everyone!

Though we haven't posted updates here for a good while now, it doesn't mean there isn't anything new. Keep visiting our website and our forum at Hard Light Productions. That's our primary place of residence.

Perhaps you could hire someone to parse your news together, and post it up on here when there's enough worthy of submitting it? Webmaster for your page or something like that?

Yeah we've had a posting up for a position like that for, oh, 3-4 years or so, but nobody's ever applied for the job. So as it stands, it's just us technical guys who do our best to keep multiple sources updated to our status. Unfortunately, we're good at making games, not so great with publicity hehe.

Might I suggest make a tier plan? Just make a chart, and divide updates amongst your team members. Perhaps even have them take turns at doing each website.

Don't worry, we will. We'll most likely have several different textures for various models

Don't forget to make the Imperial blaster color to green and the rebel to red. (To reduce confusion)

Is there ANY relative release date? I can tell this still has a long way to go, but still, but I just have to ask that.

Something that makes a big deal for me in a flight sim is visable 3d cockpits when flying... Oh god please tell me you are planing to do this and this game will finally be my replacement for the good old X-Wing series ;P

Yes, we will have in game cockpits, but it'll take us a while. Most likely our first release won't have them but we'll add them as time goes on
