What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“While Ensign-1 currently contains a complete single player campaign, there are many more ideas which I would love to put in the game, such as a fully realized multiplayer component, and more options for the player as he progresses through the story.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“The game is estimated to take about a year to bring in all of the features currently planned.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“The full version of the game will have a realized multiplayer mode where friends can partake in competitive team and deathmatch battles. In addition, there will be a more fleshed out single player campaign with a credits and ranking system that pilots will be able to use to purchase new ships and wingmen.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The Early Access version contains most of the planned single player campaign, as you can play through 11 missions, each showing off something new in the game. This includes missions where you board derelict ships and steal alien craft!”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“The game will sell at a discounted price during Early Access, and will sell for $5 more when the full version is released, for $15.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“From it's Desura days, the community has already helped shaped Ensign-1 a great deal, from providing feature suggestions like mouse support, to aesthetic feedback on art styles used. While I do intend to stay true to the original vision of the game, I draw most of my motivation from reading and listening to feedback from the community.”

About This Game

The Ensign-1 was supposed to be your ticket out of this god forsaken solar system. You signed up in hopes of a new life, a chance to be part of humanities first extra solar colonization mission. Things were cut short however, when, after a couple of years into the mission, a distress signal was received from Earth. They were under attack by an unknown alien force, and then all went silent. Now, having had to cancel its mission, the Ensign-1 turns around, possibly as Earth's last defense against this new threat.

Play the role of Leon Deckard, one of Ensign-1's finest in it's space forces. Through a series of missions, it will be up to you to take back our solar system from the enemy, and you won't need to stay in your fighter to do it. You'll have the freedom to board other ships and stations, plant bombs, and man turrets. Ensign-1 is a tough as nails space combat game built around the idea of being able to leave your space fighter. You'll need to think creatively to make it back alive.
