Support Update #2 Released!

Thank you again for all of your feedback, everyone! We've made several improvements to Hypergate in this latest Support Update.

Support for UTF-8 Usernames
Some of you have fancy Steam personas with special characters! These previously could cause Hypergate to crash, but Hypergate now has UTF-8 support and should handle your fancy-pants usernames just fine now. (Note that loading the new font files will increase Hypergate's start-up time by a few seconds.)

Improved Resolution Support
For those of you who like an extra-immersive experience, we've added support for the following monitor resolutions:

  • 2560 x 1080 (21:9)
  • 3440 x 1440 (43:18, Ultrawide QHD)
  • 3840 x 1080 (32:9, Super Ultrawide)
  • 3840 x 2160 (16:9, 4K Ultra HD)
  • 5120 x 1440 (32:9, Super Ultrawide)
  • 5120 x 2160 (21:9, Ultrawide 5K)

Note that since we don't have any monitors of these resolutions handy, they haven't been specifically tested on monitors of matching sizes. However, everything should work just fine. If you encounter any issues or feel that visual adjustments need to be made, please bring this up in the forums.

Improved Controller Layout Support
Layouts for the following controllers have been added:

  • Wingman Attack (a handy single-yoke joystick)
  • Logitech F710 Gamepad

Fixes to Fighter AI
In certain cases, AI-controlled fighters would venture off a little too far outside of the world. Fighters are now discouraged (but not strictly prevented) from targeting objects that approach the world bounds.

Also, a bug has been fixed that prevented friendly fighters from performing obstacle avoidance (and subsequently crashing into dead cruisers) at the conclusion of a mission.

Other Fixes
Some optimizations have been applied to game assets. Some lower-level facilities have been fixed to improve stability.

About This Game

Overview

Humanity's warlike ways have continued into the space age. In Hypergate, you play a new recruit of the Novan Interplanetary Alliance---and your side is losing a war that could cost more than your lives alone. Master space fighter combat amid a crumbling Alliance. Shoot your way through enemy fleets. Fight in a single-player campaign, or build your own battles for single-player mode or for LAN play with friends. Pilot your fighter using the mouse, keyboard, or your controller of choice.

Single-Player Campaign

Fight for the Alliance and play a 10-mission campaign as a new recruit. During the campaign, you will engage in combat against a variety of fighters and heavily-armed cruisers. Choose strategic targets to limit enemy reinforcements and maximize your probability of success. Total campaign play time is approximately 2 hours and includes a brief tutorial mission.


Instant Action

Build your own customized battles, whether they're small skirmishes or massive multi-fleet assaults! Configure the presence and number of fighters, cruisers, and reinforcement gates. Up to five different fleets of any of the three factions are supported. This gameplay mode supports both single-player and LAN play.


Upgrade Your Ship
