Hey everyone - I am raising awareness about a game known as Squad Wars.
About Squad wars -
We're aiming to bring you best space-based dogfighting possible – to recreate all of the amazing moments from the greats: the incredible movies and shows we grew up with, and the armada of incredible space games that came out in the 80s and 90s. We want to recreate epic capital ship battles, fighter fur balls, nerve wracking runs where all hope rests on one last surviving ship against all odds. On top of that, we want to layer an intense territory control and bragging rights game that fans of any team based combat game can get into.
You choose what scenarios to attempt every time you log in. Some scenarios will be quick and dirty with just a few players, some will be long and involved with a lot of players. You choose which of your ships and gear will best fit the role you need to take in the scenario you pick, then play it out!
Every time you play, you are progressing towards unlocking new ships, paint jobs, and new gear and goodies. You will also be affecting the state of the universe depending on if you win or lose any scenario. The overall results of every scenario played will be tracked and can have meaningful impact on you, your squad and the game world as a whole.
Every time you play the market you're actually creating missions for squads to fly. After all, it's not like a load of diamonds just safely ships itself across a lawless economic development sector. Someone's gonna have to escort it through space to protect it from those undesirable types who'd rather steal a load of diamonds than buy one.

Some example scenarios we are thinking about:
You love giant space battles. Two rival conglomerate capital ships are battling over a sector of precious resources. Join a side in your spacefighter and help ensure the outcome in favor of your team, as the capital ships unload high tech weaponry and rip each other apart...
You love trading. You just purchased some goods at an amazing price knowing you can make a killing selling it to another station. But first you have to get those goods through a hostile nebula. You create a delivery mission. When the required number of players join up in the various roles needed, the mission begins. You either get the goods delivered or they are taken by pirates...
You love mining and the role it plays in the economy. You have leveled up your ship to be a top miner in known space. Queue up a mining mission and when the roles are all filled go get your ore or die trying...
Don't have a lot of time today? Try to make the Kleinus Run in less than 5 minutes while marauding space pirates are on your tail!
You like playing something different every time. Queue up for all the types of battles and hop in the first available one, choose the right ship for the job and just have fun.
What we're also doing is building an intense territory control and bragging rights game that any fan of team based combat games can get behind. Controlling territory gives your squad the edge it needs to make a fortune and with a fortune comes all the awesome perks that the plebes don't get: Things like carriers or destroyers, or bomber wings that can strike at enemy installations for you.
Check it out on kick starter. I would post a link but the forums are not letting me
