Stand alone release based on the Freespace 2 engine. No Freespace 2 installation required.
Wings of Dawn is an anime-inspired space shooter game built on the Freespace 2 Open engine. It follows the story of a girl named Dawn, who gets thrown into a galaxy spanning war of space opera proportions. Dawn must keep her wits beside her as she encounters the numerous self-serving human governments, the long-eared and arrogant Cyrvans, and the lumbering might of the Hertak and their many thralls. Fly a variety of fighters and use devastating weapons to bring down your enemies and discover the secrets that only Dawn can unlock. Wings of Dawn is an on-going story released in episodes and is completely free!
Wings of Dawn is re-released into a completely new form. The game is now a stand alone and no longer requires an installation of Freespace 2 to run. The whole game is reworked, upgraded, more awesome and will be released in episodic chunks. So be sure to check back every year or so!
