Eighteen years have passed since FreeSpace 2 and the destruction of Capella, and the shattered colonies of man are finally ready to re-open the jump node to Earth. As the Alliance teeters on the verge of total social collapse, the Security Council deploys the elite 14th Battlegroup to re-establish contact with Earth, and young pilot Samuel Bei finds himself once more under his estranged father's command. Age of Aquarius describes the journey of the 14th Battlegroup as its mission to the Blue Planet goes shockingly wrong. War in Heaven takes place eighteen months after the events of Blue Planet: Age of Aquarius and details the final stages of the civil war between Sol and the rest of her colonies: a war without good or evil, only shades of gray. Built at the cutting edge of the FreeSpace Open engine, Blue Planet is a fan-made conclusion to the FreeSpace saga, a story of sacrifice, triumph, and destiny, and one of the most beloved FreeSpace mods of all time.
Wherein we blather on a bit while someone plays our missions
Posted by The_E on Jul 25th, 2011
Hello there. For those of you who frequent Hard Light Productions, this won't be any news. However, I thought that I should post this here as well, just for completeness' sake.
Back in August last year, we recorded developer commentaries for about half of the WiH part 1 missions. Gameplay videos were made by FreeSpace pilot extraordinaire QuantumDelta, commentary is provided by General Battuta, Darius, HerraTohtori, and me. I hope you'll enjoy these.
Until the next time, this is The E, wishing you a nice, talkative day.
EDIT: Oh, Battuta wishes that I add an apology for his microphone issues. He apparently feels that the technology was unable to deliver the full range of his finely trained voice, so yeah. Apologies for that. If we ever make more of these, we will do our best to not let that happen again.
