In 2007 the original development group, Crankshaft Games, stopped development of Eternal Silence at release v3.3 and started development of Party of Sin. Since then the ES community has been building a team. Finally, three years later, the community team has formed into a development group and is creating hot new content for the game! Ignition-Point Entertainment has recently released Update 3.6, our biggest update yet!
Some of the features that have been added include 1) all new tutorials to help new players become accustomed to the complex physics of space, 2) never-before-seen maps featuring multiple capships and ground bases, and 3) a revamped sound theme. In addition, many tweaks to the gameplay, HUD, and ships have been made to make the entire space combat experience much more exciting and immersive!
Here's what our Project Leads have to say about the new additions:
Developing ES into new and unproven grounds is the best thing that could happen to this game and its concept in my opinion. It's clear that the team is determined to give the players the best, and we have been working harder than ever with incredible results. To me the most important change is the fact that the players are becoming focused and tactical secrets known to only the most proven players are being revealed. Truthfully I think this update is going to mark a new age for Eternal Silence.

Our current Dev Team started off as players and became developers because we wanted to bring the great experience we have with this game to more gamers. With this update we want to reach out to the new players but also the loyal base we have.
I want to thank all the developers for their hard work, our beta testers for their valuable feedback and the community for their patience and support.
