Phoenix Universe of Space Combat or Phoenix USC is an arena based fast action space combat MMO that will support up to 100 players per server (more possible). Players battle it out in arena free space or in a bases. Typical games are capture the flag, team on team and league or wing matches.
Players select a spaceship and weapons to craft a ship to meet their needs. Battling in a rich visual environment players compete in building their scores, stats, wins and kills. If you like fast action, intense and addictive space combat then Phoenix USC is the game for you.
I started this project out of my interest and fondness for fast action space combat games like Subspace and it's evolution in the form Continuum . These games had a purity of game play and were based on the simple idea of battling head to head in a space setting based on a 2D plane sometimes known as a "top down" view. So I have set out to build the next generation in this type of space shooter using my experience and passion to build the game I have always wanted to see happen.
Phoenix USC is my way of furthering the "top down" space combat model to the next level.

This is a video update of the Phoenix USC preview demo featuring a new ship interface. This ship selection interface lets you choose from five preview demo ships. I also take ships Star Jag and Star Eagle - Gold for a little test drive. Below, I have also included a couple images of the new HUD and ships interfaces.
I am just a tad behind in development. I redesigned the interfaces to be easier to use and improved the look. The demo now only lacks a settings interface similar to the ships interface in design, a few teaks and adjustments to code and packing files for installation. So I am hoping to get what I need done over the next week. It's a small delay but worth it to have a nice looking and well running demo. :)
