Freeman: Star Edge is on Kickstarter right now, with a goal of $80,000, I’d love to see this game to completion. Using the Unity engine, the developers promise a vast universe full of things to explore and discover.
Tactical Squad-based Ground Combat: Wade into glorious battle with your allies and mercenaries. You manage equipment, logistics, morale, and training to maximize combat efficiency. Lay siege or skirmish in the open field to win combat objectives. You will also decide on tactics: take it slow and steady with camouflage and suppressed weapons or go full throttle with automatic weapons, sniper rifles, and explosives.
Grand-scale Space Combat: You can lead a fleet of various ship classes and engage in epic combat in space. Achieve victory by boarding enemy capital ships, or winning dogfights and battlecruiser clashes. You can upgrade your armada with the spoils of war, choosing from laser weapons, missiles, and torpedoes. Whether you hunt space pirates and loot their bases or wage a campaign against a powerful imperial navy, your victories will change the balance of power.
Dynamic, free-form gameplay: Define your own success and set your own objectives in a living world. You are free to loot, gather, mine, and trade, gamble and grab a drink at the bar. Find your place in society by seeking out friends, contacts and companions and building relationships, or go it alone, infiltrating strongholds and using diversions and assassination to get what you want. Each day in Star Edge is unique and gives you a chance to step in and decide the politics of the system. Factions engage one another dynamically. Each world is full of conflicts and intrigue: bandits raid friendly settlements, resource wars will break out, and cautious alliances will be formed as your story evolves.
