Hi guys, I just wanted to share some footage of my upcoming Space Game - STRIFE - Battle for the Southern Star.

Super happy with what I have been able to achieve in just 2 months of development. Demo coming really soon.

    Looks pretty fun, and graphics are tight. Why all of the spinning?

    @fire-phoenix it's a dodge mechanic. What don't you like about it? Give me something to work with.

    @pretzlerich Looks like fun.

    I wondered about the spinning, too. It doesn't appear to have any reason.

    @sbiewald it basically turns off collisions allowing the player to dodge incoming missiles. Maybe I spam it a bit too much in the video. I could perhaps add a cool down.

    Looks neat. Just, make sure the name is OK. I remember that there already is a game called STRIFE but its an FPS.

    @pretzlerich Yeah! It seemed like the spinning was used excessively without a purpose. If you add missiles attacking you and you use the spin to actually dodge the missiles, then it should show off the mechanic as it is intended.

    @fire-phoenix all will be explained in the tutorial. So what don't you actually like about it other than not knowing what it does?

    @pretzlerich I already answered that. I said that it is excessive.

    Pretty impressive! Keep it up

    @pretzlerich @fire-phoenix ok. No need to down vote my comment over it. I just wanted constructive feedback other than "I don't like it". Based on yours and others feedback I will add a cool down to this. Thanks for the comments

    Dude, very cool. Reminds me of starfox with the little slogans after kills.

    @dUcKtYpEd thanks. I took a lot of inspiration from starfox

    I want to play this right now, that's how good it looks. Outstanding job!
    The spinning confused me as well, sounds like this'll become a good game mechanics. Say, why did you choose spinning over flares (e.g. like in Freelancer)?
    One thing I'd replace is the Quake 3-ish announcer. While I hate the voice and at some point it just commented too often imho, my main concern is it breaks immersion. This could be replaced with radio calls.

    It looks fun, and impressive for only two months! Kudos!

    You should make a better trailer that shows off the specific features and aspects of gameplay. That and a playable demo would likely be enough to start crowdfunding further development.

    Video criticisms: spinning habit, repetitive video, chatty but repetitive npcs, doesn't show anything but dogfighting. Needs variation and progression.

    Video praises: good graphics, good handling, good camera, looks fun, environment interaction (I assume), great hud.

    Keep up the great work!

    @pretzlerich Wow, I just asked why the excessive spinning. Read my comments literally, and don't get defensive over nothing.

    @fire-phoenix sorry I didn't mean to come across in a negative way. Thanks for sharing your feedback

    @pretzlerich you're welcome.
    I'm still wondering why spinning* over something else. Not saying you should change any of that, just interested in the reasoning. :)

    (*) I know, I know, "spinning is so much cooler than not spinning" as per https://youtube.com/watch/... at 3:08 but still...
