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.

Game manuals are old skool. But I like 'em too.

These days, you should design games so they can just be picked up and played. But a manual is great for those who want a more in-depth view into how things work. Or who prefer preparing ahead of time, rather than jumping in and learning "trial by fire" style.

that sounds like something people would learn in videogame school "design games so they can be picked up and played". fact of the matter is those schools are the problem because all they are teaching anyone to do is make the same exact games as everyone else. from a design standpoint it works for overly simplistic games that appeal to pop gamers only. i think most people who play indie games LIKE a certain amount of thought behind their games though, which only a manual can provide.

plus i miss the days of reading the manual while mom drove home from the game store.

I hear you. And don't get me wrong - I like complex games, and unusual games that don't rehash the same gameplay. Still, I think anything that can be taught in a manual can also be taught in-game through a tutorial, hints, and in-game help. But manuals can be great too, for people who like to learn a game that way. I too remember hungrily digging into manuals for a new game purchase. That's why I provided both - it works good for different sorts of folks who learn in different ways. Thanks for your thoughts megaflux - interesting discussion!

Uh, for some reason my game's language turned into French... o.O

I've been playing for a few days, but then yesterday I had an error that prevented me from playing. Today I tried playing again and everything was in french...

That is very, very strange. It should be impossible for the language to "just switch" to french unless you specifically modify a configuration file. And that's not something that could just happen accidentally or by itself.

Send me an email at, and we'll have a closer look at what's going on.

No need. I tried reinstalling it, and it came out in English again. Either it was one weird glitch, or I may have accidentally somehow installed the French version over the English one.

Regardless, its working fine again. :D

Love the game so far, been having a grand ol time flying around blowing crap up. Landing on planets blowing crap up. Going back into space buy new stuff to blow more crap up. I don't know how they keep making stuff so quick just for me to blow up only a few minutes later but I sure do love blasting things apart in this game. I can't wait to max out my tech and try blasting some citadels and colonies apart single handedly(I don't know if I could but you can be sure I'll try). As it goes I really have had a ton of fun with this game and I'm just starting the story. The droid unity + focus stims + tech level 5 disruptor = Maximum Carnage. I love how quickly you can get into action because even if you don't have a battle going on right now you can always go hunt a pirate and teleport to other stations to see what they are doing. Thank you for such an awesome game and thank you for making a linux version. This is the best linux game I have and provides a tremendous amount of fun.

Hiya Xovan - thanks for dropping by to give the game a thumbs up. It really makes my day better to read something like this. :) I'm glad you're having fun!

Re: The droid unity + focus stims + tech level 5 disruptor = Maximum Carnage.
Haha - I cannot argue with your math. ;)
I think a lot of players underutilize the stims other than nano-surgery (the heal). But these other stims can be really powerful if used in the right situations.

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…
