I remember beta testing this game until I came to the realization that it was boring and s###ty.

So for concept art, you can scroll down on This Page and look at some ship designs, and here are the promised screenies:
I don't know why there's a bunch of white space in this one, but this is the proof of concept title screen, replete with gross fonts and ugly buttons:
This is an in-game screenshot, you can see our lolsteroids and another ship of the same class nearby.
IMMA FIRIN IT!
With a little help from my friends
...Okay not really cloning, but that got your attention. It's just a very similar-styled game, hopping from system to system buyin' new ships and upgrades, and doing missions for the cause of 1 of 3 xenophobic governments bent on domination of the galaxy.
It's being developed in Java, by three people, using the jmonkey engine for a bunch of the stuff. But yeah, we've got a working AI with a steerable ship that can shoot stuff, run around a starfield, minimap, landable planets, and PARTICLE EFFECTS OOOOHH!
I am the spriter and director, my friend from college is the coder, and my girlfriend is doing concept and splash art. Once school starts up again for the fall semester we'll be roping in a sound guy and hopefully (PLEASE GOD) a scripter to help us with creating missions and NPC response strings.
We're gonna try and submit it to some indie festivals, as a PC and mobile platform game, but I'll be sure to let you guys know when it's out for playin'.
The working title right now is Space Empires, but that's subject to change.
I'll drop some screenshots all up in this topic later, although the HUD looks a bit poop at the moment, and our asteroids resemble crumpled packing peanuts. Hooray filler sprites!
I'd just like to say that, like many others in this topic, EVO was my favorite game in the series too. The unadulterated sense of adventure and the sheer bizarre allure of alien spacecraft and worlds made Override just too good to pass up.
The Scoutship in Override was always a joy to buy. The range of that ship just made exploration irresistible.
While I do not want an expansion for this game built on the nova engine, as I see it as an antiquated hack of a game engine at this point, I would love to see the world of override continued in a fresh and new presentation.
