Salvation Prophecy is a space epic. Four warring factions battle over control of the known galaxy. Space stations and planet colonies endure constant assault. You begin your journey as a soldier recruit. Through intense planet and space battle, your combat skills will be put to a grim test. Success is rewarded with powerful skills, combat gear, and ship upgrades, and you may rise in rank to become commander of your faction. Lurking in the dark recesses of the universe is a threat foreseen by an apocalyptic prophecy. A danger far greater than mankind's endless battles. The pursuit of the prophecy leads through distant alien worlds with deadly creatures and untold secrets. A chance for redemption, if only we find our way through that dark hour.

  • Testing on multiple distributions, on both NVidia and AMD cards
  • English and French (new!) language language settings

If you get a chance, I'd love to see some video of later game content. There's a lot of youtube vids out there, but most show the first couple missions. The action definitely ramps up in the later game. Some youtube of that would be awesome.

Just bought this and can't launch it. At first Desura asked me to verify the files, which I did with no problems. When I launch it directly I get:

The application has failed to start because its side-by-side configuration is incorrect. Please see the application event log or use the command-line sxstrace.exe tool for more detail.

Thanks Rickasaurus - I'll check into that right away. The stand-alone installer definitely runs vcredist_x86.exe, and the Desura installer is supposed to as well. I'll get in contact with my Desura tech contact to see what's going on. Maybe the Desura installer is running the wrong version.

Good job getting it worked out!

If you'd like I can send you the SxS log. I'll need some way to get into contact though.

I've played through the game once, and I have to say it really exceeded my expectations. Although the game suffers a bit from repetition, I feel like it's really got a good tempo; let me explain what I mean by tempo. There's always something to do, and you're (until near the end) always getting stronger in some way. The best way I could describe it is to draw comparisons to Pirates!. New mission types are introduced at a reasonable pace and keep the game interesting. Maybe you'll start out doing…
