While we have seen a number of space strategy games released in the last few years, none of them have given us that Homeworld
feeling. Relic's classic RTS game used 3D space for its battles in a way that has yet to really be duplicated. That's why the announcement of Flotilla
from indie developer Blendo Games
caught our eye.
While the game uses rather simple graphics it's gameplay seems to be anything but. As you can see in the video after the jump, it's a turn based game but uses the full 3D space to battle enemy space ships. The result? A game design that, while not a pure RTS game, is about as close to Homeworld
's design as we are going to get. Flotilla
's single player game looks to be a combo of strategy and adventure (panda bears are involved) and yes there will be both co-op and skirmish gameplay for multiplayer. The game is due for a downloadable release on the PC later this month but no price point has been announced.
