This is a development video of the Phoenix USC preview demo I will be releasing . It shows the basic experience you will have playing the demo. I will be adding more weapon types/classes and ships as well as shield impact effects. I will also coordinate the weapons colors to match the team color of the ship. I also have several new ships to add, but I am getting very close to having the demo done.
You will also see some of the GUI features and the global chat (IRC gateway) used in the game. All available on the Phoenix USC preview demo coming soon. The demo is a stand alone version of the Phoenix USC client and will include 100 bot's for you to obliterate as well as capture the flag. This should help you get the basic I idea of what Phoenix USC is about. Total space combat, realtime, online with hundreds of fellow pilots battling it out for the thrill of victory!
I can also say that the performance of the game engine is very good as I am running the demo in 1200x700 windowed and recording the game video all on my humble E-Machines dual-core with on-board video. That kind of performance is good enough to support tablet devices down the road. I also believe I will be able to release both a Linux and Window versions of the preview demo. Linux is a little more difficult to get compatible but I have it running solidly on my Debian 6 wheezy setup.
Check here often as it helps our standing here and please share this video if you can. :) You can also support Phoenix USC at my official site.
