Developed by SaintXi, Light of Altair is a sci-fi colony building game in which you will grow colonies from landing pod to metropolis, while sending off new spaceships to expand your territory to other worlds. You are not alone in space, 8 factions from different parts of the world are all following their own agendas in the solar system; diplomacy and orbital-combat are essential to learn. Light of Altair is based on a custom built 3D engine that enables easy zooming from galaxies all the way down to individual moons and asteroids covered in the colonies with their glass domes, mines and launch pads. Advanced shader technology is used to add rich details and lighting to surfaces (check full article for more info about the game). Light of Altair will be available worldwide through digital distribution channels from 4th June 2009 - a playable demo is now available.
