Empire in the Sky is an independently developed PC video game set in a stylized 1960s-1980s retro cartoon universe with blatant and extensive references to NASA and other "Space Race" icons. Much of the data is modeled after real life, so you might even learn something! This is the "lava lamp" of space RPG shooters! Travel the cosmos in a fully customizable spacecraft -- designed by you (or us). Fight or befriend scores of alien civilizations in your quest to rule the cosmos, while exploring a rich, procedurally generated world that includes planets, planetary bases, towns, cities and starbases. Build a nearly limitless and vast empire that stretches across hundreds of star systems, on thousands of planets! Empire in the Sky optionally lets you build your own starbases and planetary bases, and enhance your designs by crafting individual spacecraft parts.

Report RSS Lost Astronaut to work with Leap Motion

Leap Motion is a new gadget that will be available at Best Buy. It uses motion detection technology to allow you to gesture at your monitor to control the mouse cursor, interact with 3D objects, write things, draw things: a new world of possibilities! Lost Astronaut plans to integrate Leap Motion with its current engine technology, and release a free minigame for the PC on the Desura platform!

In the above video you can see an IT executive at Leap Motion work with the star of the web series The Guild demonstrating the new technology! Very exciting and we'll keep you posted on what's in store later this year from Lost Astronaut's new gesture-based gaming project.

Also, don't forget to check out Empire in the Sky here on Desura! We recently released a new promo video showcasing our new voice talent and procedurally-rendered planet environments!
