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 video is a snapshot of Phoenix USC's progress on the up comping preview demo. It features all of the recent additions such as high detail background, new asteroids, new center mount weapon, new explosion effect and for the first time sound effects are featured. An awesome video demonstrating what the preview demo looks and plays like.
The game is really coming together and I am very pleased with the performance I am getting. This HD video was captured (windowed) while playing the preview demo on my E-Machines dual core with lowly on-board video (performance settings). Very respectable performance. :)
Please share this video or this IndieDB page, Phoenix USC needs your support. :)

I have three weapons available for a player ship. Wing (laser/cannon), center (bombs/cannon) mount plus mines. Bigger nicer explosions. :D
