Space-faring adventure and derring-do!
« on: June 25, 2008, 08:36:42 pm »



Hi everyone, I wanted to let you in on the deadly, pan-galactic secret that is Gammon Trigger! This space-faring adventure of epic proportions is being brought to you by Naixela Software, and we'd like you to take a look and let us know what you think! Gammon Trigger is in the classic vein of Star Control and Star Flight. We currently have a beta demo and are looking for people to try it out and see just how dreamy it is. You can find more info at http://www.gammontrigger.com/. Please let us know what you think! The galaxy rests in your hands.

Uh oh. Half the people here are Linux users. Oh well, I'll give the demo a try when I get the time.

Gammon Trigger is in the classic vein of Star Control and Star Flight.

Looks like it's got a little bit of Escape Velocity thrown in as well, which means it's likely that the game will be incredibly awesome.  Too bad I don't have any way to play Windows games.

A bigger, better, prettier version of EV would be nice!  Cool

The missiles were mostly useless against the fast tutorial enemy, but that might be intentional. There's an awful lot of roving enemies around once that Faylen Fighter bites the dust. I got killed pretty quick after that.

Took it for a short spin...

Mining seems a bit boring, just clicking all over the map.
I didn't really get what the mining scan was for. Embarrassed
Trading seemed cumbersome too, loads of clicks. And I think minerals should be separated from things like a warp drive. (Buy a hundred warp drives?)
Where do I get fuel? I could still fly without it. The warp thing didn't seem to work though. Maybe I do need to buy a hundred warp drives.
Didn't really get the hang of fighting. Embarrassed But I only played for like ten minutes.
Loved the graphics.
And of course, a million points for the SC style in gameplay/story.

"..and windows sucks. Too much clicking. Mac OSX is no better. Have to click for everything. And then there's the minesweeper mini-game. I just can't stand clicking."

Yeah, except those examples aren't really repetitive (in Minesweeper you actually need to think where to click). The things I mentioned could be streamlined, e.g. "sell all minerals". I was basically comparing it directly to SC2. Tongue

Now why does that remind me of the recent announcement of Diablo 3? Tongue
