SWATJest's Jumpgate Evolution @ PAX



Our own SWATJester is at PAX with the gang this year, and has written his thoughts on Jumpgate Evolution on our PAX blog.

I stopped by the Netdevil booth to take a look at their in-development space based MMO Jumpgate Evolution. The game is a twitch based space combat MMO in the vein of Freelancer. But while the core is space combat, it retains the trappings of an MMORPG including a full looting, crafting, and mining system. Unlike EVE, where combat still takes the traditional form of tanks, support units, and nukers, Jumpgate combat is like watching an episode of Battlestar Galactica. Fighters shoot streams of machine gun tracers, turrets launch huge flaming balls of plasma, and capital ships pummel each other while swarms of fighters and bombers dance around in the middle.

Thanks Al-Maroc. There's footage awaiting compression and editing, including 15 minutes or so of gameplay footage narrated by the game's producers, so it's something you'll definitely want to keep an eye out on.
