Battlestar Galactica…no…Pegasus…no…Theseus

You can find all sorts of things on YouTube. Over the weekend, Scott Manley (the Kerbal Space Program expert), posted a video about playing a free game called Diaspora: Broken Armistice by Hard Light Productions. The game has been out for some time but I completely missed it. Based on the Freespace 2 engine, the story follows the Battlestar Theseus as the Cylons invade the 12 Colonies. The flight mechanics are excellent but really challenging to learn at first. I love the drifting and flipping you can do like the TV show. The graphics are excellent for a decade old engine.

I’m a sucker for simulators. Add some sci-fi and spaceships and I’m there. Looking at you, Star Citizen!
