Full Disclosure: FleetCOMM Technologies LLC are hosting Niche Gamer staff for lodging costs at this year’s PAX East – to save on our costs. This will not affect our coverage of the event as we have no legitimate investment in each other. To avoid ethical concerns, we will recuse ourselves from the game’s coverage at PAX.
Indie developer Mercenary Games has announced their Kickstarter-funded, tactical sci-fi shooter, FleetCOMM, will be hosting its official release at this year’s PAX East.
The full release of the game will be playable in their booth, #11176. To be clear, the actual Steam release information will be announced during the convention. To celebrate the announcement for the release, Mercenary Games has shared new promotional art (featured above) for the title, featuring #GamerGate mascot Vivian James.
In case you need a refresher on FleetCOMM, you can find a brief synopsis below:
A sci-fi game of tactical squadron combat fused with advanced space maneuvers.
Evolution in Real Time Tactics
This game presents an innovation in 2D action games; we introduce the ability to radically manipulate tactical maneuvers in real time. The game engine delivers a Fleet Codex, a real-time editing tool that allows you to create, experiment and design unique combat maneuvers.
In essence, the Fleet Codex is a football playbook for squadron formations. Our games philosophy focuses on free-form combat and player driven experimentation. Our arcade edition features our complete Fleet Codex and shows a new horizon for player-created combat actions.
