Gimbal EXPANSION ONE Header Graphic - May 2003 - RACE - DEATHMATCH - CTF - PARTS

It is with great pleasure that I announce the release of Gimbal Expansion One ! It has taken many months of Beta testing and development, but Expansion One is now here. Thank you, Beta Testers!

This is the largest release of Gimbal features since Gimbal's original launch in August 2012. Expansion One has new game modes, weapons, and features which work together to bring Gimbal in line with my original vision.

It's a free update to Gimbal, so all you have to do is launch Desura and let the automatic updater do its thing.

26 Indispensable New Parts

  • Linear Extenders
  • Winches
  • The Repair Bot
  • Repulsor and Tractor Force Fields

  • Smarter Stabilizers
  • +More

  • Race your friends or race the clock
  • All weapons legal

  • Are you a bad enough dude to survive?

Capture The Flag

  • Where true teamwork is rewarded
  • Defend or Aggress - YOU CHOOSE!

I upvoted it on Steam, too. I will echo some of the other players in that I am more a single player gamer. I prefer PvE with occasional PvP. Any chance you will add some single player components later?

Thank you for making a space combat game that isn't a 4X game!!

I have a question. When I start the game it says I am inputting some keys like zoom and stuff. I am however not pressing anything. I can't do anything the game. Any way to prevent this?

Game seems interesting. But not that much players online at the moment. Tried the demo and only 4 or 5 servers with 4-6 people online at each server. Trying again later... seems not the best time being afternoon here in europe and probably early day in us time zones.

Voted it on Steam. Should there be more players(Steam release could help there) I might think about buying it. But 11,99 Euros seems a bit much for me...

Maybe include the demo into Desura somehow... not everyone is reading the comments. Will help in getting more players. With more players and strategy and tactics instead of only 3 players each team and getting pwned by some high rank with good ship I think it could be fun.

This game is amazing - thus far I have logged dozens of hours and it is more fun with every game I play. This is one of those indies that come along that really needs to be played, played and played some more!

It is a multiplayer game with the option of bots. However, the community is doing fairly well at staffing games atm.

Is it only just multiplayer? Is there any single player aspects to it, like a sandbox mode or something?

Yes. I'm still working out the best way to do it. You can PM me your IGS key, and I will activate it on Desura.

Fantastic game with amazing depth due to extremely customizable craft and a great leveling system. Physics and FX are also top notch. Great community - see if the ship you build can conquer the online community

Must Buy!
