Gratuitous Space Battles v1.60 Patch Released and Trailer

Massively-singleplayer hybrid of RTS and tower defense gets new feature
Positech Games has released a new patch for Gratuitous Space Battles, adding mid-battle control to the game. This is only an 'optional' feature and only works in single-player offline games, but the player can select ships and issue movement and fire orders mid battle, and even edit the 'standing' orders for ships in the middle of an engagement.
A video that explains the way the system works, along with a demonstration of the new visual effects added in the patch, has been added in our download section.
