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!

Dodgy looking title cover, but great looking screenshots! Will look to play this soon

What do you mean exactly with 'Dodgy looking title cover' ?

Your title cover (download) is a little off, maybe a screenshot or something would be more appropriate

Define 'a little off'
Vague comments like these don't tell me a lot.

Well that's just like your (uninformed) opinion man

Maybe he meant that the title cover does not match the actual game screens, like it is too colorful when matched with the actual game somber tones. I guess I have to agree with him, it is to bright with contrasts with the darkeness of the screens.

What he means to say is probably the inclusion of characters drawn in the manner most 'anime' characters are, which seems like an utmost peculiar choice for a game such as this for one particular reason, the original art style of the freespace game doesn't seem to accommodate such genres that easily, so he possibly may have been surprised by it.

I've recently been playing through FreeSpace 2 mods and I just want to say that this was easily one of the funnest! I love the way it diverges from standard FS2 structure, and its creative mission and enemy design. I mean obviously there were some annoying parts to the campaign, but it's still incredible what you did in a year.

Here's hoping for a sequel!

PS More planetary missions please. XD
