Starflight 3

You guys seen the new official Starflight 3 game in the making? Cool to see this 30yr old dead franchise coming back to life! Not sure if it'll get funded though as so many years have passed! Plus a lot of people have never heard of Fig.

When I was 15 years younger or so, I played a game so incredibly similar to this that when I first saw the screenshots and the trailer I thought to myself that it was it. Well, it's not and I can't recall the name, but anyway, this type of game is something I used to enjoy in the cloudy memory of my childhood. I hope it finds enough support for a release version, not many games of this kind nowadays.

Now this is some serious game archeology! Never heard of it, and I consider myself pretty knowladgble when it comes to games...

Hmm well if it wasn't starflight I might able to help you reconnect with it. Just like my HoMM Similar games website I've talked about here before I also run a Starflight Similar Games page where I've listed all sorts of similar games to Starflight with pictures. Maybe you'll find it there! Starflight had many different looking versions including a Sega Mega Drive (Genesis) remake. It also spawned the popular Star Control series which Stardock are making a new game for atm!

Hahaha had to be rockin the space games in the 80s to know about this series mate. Although I didn't discovered it until the Sega Mega Drive (Genesis) remake came out in the 90s. Grew up playing that version!

Well it looks like it was all for nothing sadly. Just over a day to go and the Starflight 3 crowdfund is barely over halfway. 30 years waiting for a sequel and its fails due to not enough media attention. So many thousands of SF fans out there (SF1 was apparently the first ever game to go platinum with 1mil sales back in the 80s) that never got to hear about this. Such a shame!

But there's still hope as Greg & Anthony said in a recent podcast that they'll look at improving the demo and may try a crowdfund again in the future or secure a publisher. If you're a big Starflight fan and you come across this thread long after it's too late, come join the starflight facebook group and they'll let you know the next time anything happens with SF3 (if there's a next time *sigh* ) plus the group is following a rather impressive Starflight 1 remake from a ex-bethesda employee so all is not lost for us old SF fans!
