In Starfighter Inc., your worth as a pilot is defined by the missions you’re willing to take on. Your assignments may be dangerous — or morally dubious — but at the end of the day, it’s the difficult jobs that reap the best rewards. The only question is whether or not you’ve got the skills to tangle with the very best. Sound like your kind of adventure? You have 50 hours left to become a backer for the game on Kickstarter.
Starfighter Inc. is a space combat simulator inspired by classic titles like X-Wing vs. TIE Fighter, but don’t assume it’s a simple retread of old ideas. The development team at Impeller Studios has also taken notes from modern multiplayer standouts like World of Warships and Counter-Strike to ensure that the game breaks new ground for the genre.
That being said, the studio’s ambitions go beyond just creating an engaging, addictive dogfighting game. Starfighter Inc. is among an elite group of video games to be awarded the Atomic Rockets Seal of Approval, a certification that attests to the developer's efforts to get the science right.
This means that the setting, the ships, the weaponry, the tactics, and even the reasons behind the conflict in Starfighter Inc. are all based on extensive research. Today's technology has been extrapolated 200 years in the future, creating a believable setting for players to immerse themselves in.
Of course, if you're truly looking to lose yourself in the world of Starfighter Inc., you might want to utilize some extra hardware. Impeller Studios has collaborated with Oculus, HTC, and OSVR to ensure that the game is compatible with a wide range of virtual reality headsets. Players can also choose to control their ship with a joystick peripheral — and they'll even see their movements recreated in-game by their avatar.

Impeller Studios is currently in the midst of a crowdfunding campaign for Starfighter Inc. on Kickstarter, with just a matter of hours left to go. This is your chance to grab a copy of the game before anyone else — $25 will secure a digital download and some extra rewards, while $35 will nab all of that, plus a copy of the game's soundtrack and access to an upcoming beta.
Starfighter Inc. is scheduled to launch in April 2018 for PC. For more information on this immersive space combat sim, check out the Official Starfighter Inc. Wiki.
