“If you are a nostalgic as a server and enjoyed titles like Wing Commander , Descent Freespace or the excellent first games of Star Wars , which just centered all their action in the battles between ships is definitely a game that you must play to remember that time where the Space simulators were simple and easy to master.”

About This Game

Starfighter Origins is a 90`s style Indie space combat simulator inspired by games such as wing commander, Freespace and star wars. Combining a focus on single player action and favouring full space combat simulation over dog-fighting, Starfighter Origins looks and plays best using a Gamepad and also supports HOTAS. Limited keyboard and mouse is also supported

Space Combat Evolved

Starfighter origins builds on the late 90`s space combat simulators with a focus on space combat. Unlike other games which which concentrate on other aspects of gameplay such as trading, infinite universes and dynamic content and multiplayer. Star fighter Origins focuses solely on the space combat and keeps the same feel and diversity of titles it was inspired by such as Wing Commander, Freespace and Star Wars.

Unique Pick up and play control system

Starfighter origins is easy to get to grips with even if you have never played a space combat simulator before. The CDF ships use a gravity drive and magnetic drive which gives much better control over the ship compared to the old rocket propulsion system. While the controls are easy to pick up and get to grips with each ship is different and will take time to master.

*Unique 90`s Industrial art style of the CDF Universe
