Have You Ever Wanted To Command A Fleet of Spaceships?

Flagship is an upcoming title from Manchester based Urban Logic Games. As much as I hate to use the word 'immersion' it seems like it is the only word to use here.

Basically the set-up is that you are the commander of a fleet making your way through space in order to expand your territory. You will encounter enemies that you must defeat and have constant awareness of what is happening with your fleet, be prepared to fight or flee or simply explore.

Now, here is the fun part. It is all done from the bridge of your ship and the entire game is in first person, with oculus rift support. You control your fleet from a computer screen on the bridge. Move units into position and plan your attack.This sounds kinda cool, but more of the same really. When you see it in action you will see the potential here. Imagine coordinating an attack on your computer to look up through the window of your ship and watch your soldiers move into position and attack.

Right now the game is in early development so it is a little to early to say what the final product will be like, but you should definitely keep an eye on this one.

To sate your appetite until we get more info on this you can check out a video:
