Starflight 3

Recommended Posts

Showing my age here but are there any 80s/90s Starflight fans here? I loved these games as a kid.

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.

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!

I thought the title said Starcraft 3 for a second and I started doing back flips in my chair. Aw well, this still looks pretty cool.

Damn, I didn't hear anything about this. Too bad they didn't get there. I love Starflight, one of the first PC games I ever played. I've done a bit of designing for a game inspired by Starflight, plus some Dwarf Fortress. Keep an eye for that in 15 or 20 years. ;)
