Earlier this year we brought you the reveal of a new game from designer Brad Jeffery called, Flagship. The game is a real-time strategy game set in the first person perspective as you control space ship combat on a huge scale. If you missed the game’s initial trailer, you can check it out just below.
For the rest of the details about the game, check out the following quotes just below directly from the Flagship Kickstarter page.
Inspired by great RTS titles such as Homeworld, Sins of a Solar Empire and Total Annihilation, and incorporating the capital ship combat of sci-fi classics such as Star Trek, Babylon 5 and Battlestar Galactica, Flagship will allow you to command a fleet from the bridge of your own starship. Explore the stars, expand your territory and save humanity from being wiped out in a hostile galaxy.
Humanity had only just begun its expansion beyond the solar system when it came face to face with a thriving and hostile galaxy. After a disastrous defeat, the Sol system was lost and the remains of the human race were forced into a backwater system. With limited resources and a skeleton fleet, it’s up to you to rebuild what has been lost, or forge a new empire from the ashes.
Taking and holding systems is at the core of Flagship. Colonising planets allows you to mine the resources required to build bases and expand your fleet, in addition to getting the food and water you’ll need to support the remaining human population. Planets that are rich in resources will be attractive targets for the enemy and therefore much harder to defend. Systems with nebulae or space anomalies may make you harder to detect, offering a safer place to establish a colony.

You can read up more on the game and fund it if you wish by visiting the game’s Kickstarter page via the link. Flagship is looking quite nice and should be quite the interesting title if funded based on the premise of controlling a fleet of spaceships from the first person perspective.
