Diaspora: Free Battlestar Galactica Space Sim Released

By on September 6th, 2012 10:34 am

A bunch of Battlestar Galactica fans have been developing Diaspora: Shattered Armistice for 4 years now, a single and multiplayer space combat game set in the reimagined Battlestar Galactica universe. Today, and according to Blues News they released their game.

You’ll be able to fly Vipers, Raptors, Cylon Raiders, Blackbird and other fighters from the BSG Universe, but not Galactica itself. This is a fighter pilot kind of game.

The game is completely free. Yes, freeware, not free-to-play or anything like that. You just download and that’s it. You can play against the computer in a bunch of single-player missions, supposedly part of a campaign, but you can also play online as a team against the computer or another human team. There’s also a free-for-all deathmatch mode against other human players.

The game was built on top of the Freespace 2 engine and supports joysticks, mouse and keyboard.

You can download Diaspora for Windows, Mac and Linux. To know more have a look at the announcement thread at hard-light.net or at the game’s official website.

      :D I may have started to disconnect there. Although the series was already in trouble some episodes before. But I had a blast for the most part, although I also had a blast for Lost for a great deal of time before I gave up at some point also. I’m just not into TV series now. Too time consuming and not that rewarding in the long run.

    Didn’t care for the last season or two of BSG when it became much more of a political show. I enjoyed Caprica quite a bit though. I wasn’t really expecting much from that show. Wish they hadn’t killed it off. I think they just did a bad job of advertising what it was really about. The ads made it seem like it was a sci-fi soap opera and it wasn’t.

      The last season was much of a sci-fi soap opera if you ask me. But I guess you missed that one (not that you missed a lot). Lots of fill up episodes with love triangles if I recall correctly. That’s one thing that also turned me off about Lost. I think it was season 3. You also had a love triangle there. Don’t have time for such nonsense.

        Oh, finally someone who dares to criticize the BSG series…

        To be honest, I think the series is overrated – even the first two seasons I could hardly sit over – then I gave up, ceased to watch the show.

        The concept is good, it could be interesting but overall the whole series and storyline is slow like a snail – for my taste. Too much drama, too much politics powerplay, too much sneaky spygame…

    I missed the atmosphere of the old serie, in which each episode had a space battle, or at least some fighting and explosions involved.
    The new serie is very limited with that. It is mainly filled in with cheap psychological stuffs.
    I also stopped watching the new serie.
    Either this is due to a lack of budget, either the writers have been absorbing too much Estrogen hormons.
    At least this game seems to stick more with what the new serie should have been. And those who think the contrary can go back to play “The Sim”, if you know what I mean.

    Wow, I don’t remember freespace 2 engine looking so good, great job on the graphics overhaul.
