Announcing X FLEET

18 months of grueling late shifts solo coding has resulted in my first born: X Fleet - a space shooter / rpg for Android.

Now I humbly bring it to your attention, cradling it delicately in its swaddling cloths.

I set out to do things differently - I desperately wanted to avoid the puzzle / physics cloning that's rampant in the market. I didn't even want to bring a classic space shooter into the world.

The end result is a space shooter cut up with the familiar rpg elements of weapons/ship upgrades, npcs, quests, and a full narrative. Final Fantasy-esque towns take the form of the orbit of all the worlds of the solar system.

So here goes, if you want any further information let me know.

There's more info and screens at http://unlikekinds.com, and the bad ass microsite is at http://unlikekinds.com/xfleet

Cheers for your time boys and girls

Punch your way through the solar system and get to the bottom of the enigmatic blockade threatening the worlds of man.

Your wingmen have your back as you tackle your mission, but you’ll need all your skill to survive - and your interplanetary space ship with its vast array of advanced weaponry.

X Fleet is a fast-paced space shooter / rpg that doesn’t compromise. It brings you high-end graphics for your Android phone or tablet (Nexus One-level or better), and it’s deeper than your average puzzle game.

Hope you’re feeling ninja-fast today.

X Fleet will have you:

- Blow hundreds of hostile ships out of the sky

- Snap up loads of weapons and special ship modules

- Explore 10+ worlds

- Face off against massive capital ships and motherships

- Work with - and against - various people you’ll meet on your journey

- Explore a vast narrative spanning the entire Solar System

- Rocking out to a full soundtrack including an original track

You can either whimper at the feet of our would-be oppressors, or lead the charge against them.
