Space Empires: Starfury Approaching a Galaxy Near You! The newest title in the critically acclaimed Space Empires series announced Cary, NC, 29 April 2003 - Shrapnel Games is pleased to announce today the next title in Malfador Machinations' award winning Space Empires series--Space Empires: Starfury. SE: Starfury represents a departure from previous titles in the Space Empires series, as players will live their alternate lives not as interstellar rulers, but rather as a single starship captain trying to eke out a life amongst the stars. "In the past Aaron Hall and Malfador Machinations have allowed players to create vast empires in space," Tim Brooks, President and founder of Shrapnel Games has commented. "This time instead of players examining the universe from a god's eye view they'll be down in the trenches, commanding one starship, which will be very exciting. Imagine the thrill of you sitting in the captain's chair, making the all important decisions!" Indeed, Space Empires: Starfury should appeal to not just fans of the Space Empires series, but also to the legions of wannabe Kirks and Picards. Additionally, fans of the boardgame Star Fleet Battles, or the classic computer game Elite, will find plenty to cheer about in Starfury. Inside Starfury you'll find plenty of options for customizing your vessel, an intense combat model, and more missions than a five year voyage could shake a dilithium crystal at! Just check out some of the amazing features that will be found in Space Empires: Starfury: * 3-D real time graphics, supporting 24-bit color and resolutions of 1024x768 and above! * Twelve different ship classes to actually pilot, with more than fifty total types in the game. You'll also be able to customize your vessel with a wide variety of components. * Open ended gameplay in a vast dynamic living universe! Follow the missions set out for you or don't; the choice is up to you. Become a mercenary, a merchant, or even an intergalactic pirate. Earn money for your ship's upkeep the honest way or take it by force, the choice is yours! * Meet and greet the various races from the best-selling Space Empires series on a personal level. Trade with them! Seduce their women! Or just blow them up! * Encounter a wide variety of stellar locations, ranging from gas giants to trinary stars to everyone's favorite, nebulae! * Just like Space Empires IV, it's a mod, mod world. Players will be able to mod the game as they see fit. Whether it's creating the Star Wars galaxy or the Honor Harrington universe, the player's imagination (and creativity) is the only limit! Space Empires: Starfury is expected to be released in July. As of now no price has been set.
