Ceres: This will not end well

Space adventure and simulator games seem to be making a comeback in a rather big way. The art of a good space game was lost over the years, but as technology become more invested in space travel and missions to Mars, it would seem as if game developers have latched on. Currently in its Alpha stage, Ceres is another space games that is trying to do things a little bit differently, by giving players control of a squadron of ships in full 3D space combat. The game promises that players will be able to explore, battle and trade their way across the galaxy while battling a large number of unseen enemies lurking in the deepest parts of the solar system.

“If you ever wondered how it would have been to fully control and customize a small battle squadron in Homeworld, Elite, Nexus: the Jupiter Incident or hack your way into enemy ships in cyberspace, then this game is for you!” the title exclaims on its website.

In terms of your fleet, players will be able to take control of their own squadron of star ships, which could include frigates, cruisers or even battleships. Battle in space is only half of what gamers can do, as the title adds an interesting dynamic of allowing ships to hacking into enemy ships to damage them, or even take control of it.

In terms of story, it’s a bit of a post-apocalyptic one. “The solar system is ravaged. The Earth is gone, shattered to pieces. Nothing remains but a huge ring of rocky debris,” it explains. Gamers will form part of a group of survivors who will have to fight for their survival against humans, monsters and machine-gods.
