Voidnex: Frontier's Spiffy New Look

Space themed video games seem to be making a glorious comeback and Voidnex: Frontier has a different take on the subject. While the developers don't seem to explicitly describe it as such focusing instead on the strategic aspects, for now it appears to resemble a space RPG, the story mode of which will see you guiding your fleet through the universe in a race towards the fabled galactic core where fame and fortune await, while setting up trading networks and engaging in turn based battles as you establish your very own financial empire on the way there. A unique sandbox mode will also be included providing a procedurally generated quest line, while the game's features go as in-depth as the ability to recruit, train and assign ships to individual crew members. The project is, if nothing else, ambitious. The latest video showcasing its updated visuals and combat engine however shows it could be a lot more than that.

The game will be released for Windows, Linux and Mac in an as of yet unannounced date.
