In the lawless parts of the galaxy, massive corporations duke it out in all-out corporate warfare and espionage. You play as a Data-Thief: a skilled pilot who can fly into a corporate facility, grab their data, and then fly out again. Getting the data is a cakewalk. It's escaping back to your mothership that's the challenge. The whole planet is on high-alert and the corporation's private army is on your tail. You'll have to speed across a variety of alien environments while fighting off your pursuers if you want to see safety.

You can play the web version of the game here:

Flight of the Data-Thief is a 3D Rail-Shooter where you fly across a series of alien landscapes trying to escape from dangerous pursuers.

The game has a total of 9 levels (some of which can only be found by discovering hidden exits to levels).

I hope you enjoy.

With how many Sci-Fi themed games there are , I'm hard pressed to find many that explore ideas in the way Golden Age/New Wave Sci-Fi did.

And it's pretty telling that games like Bioshock and Spec Ops would catch up years later with (more clumsy) exploration of the same ideas.

Not to mention how it does a great job of building a genuine sense of dread and paranoia. With notes of Phillip K. Dick and Moorcock.

Like, the theme of how information and our surroundings influence us, and how dangerous a central control of information can be.

Either the rumor will add a quest to your list, in which case it's something, or it won't, in which case it's nothing.
