     posted by onpon4, Thu 08 Jun 2017 10:23:28 PM UTC

I noticed in my mailbox that Project: Starfighter had been greenlit, so I went to submit the game. Unfortunately, due to ethical boundaries I refuse to break, despite being greenlit, I will not be putting Project: Starfighter on Steam.

That ethical boundary is, quite simply, a non-disclosure agreement (NDA), an agreement where one is given [...]

My current focus is actually my contributions to Naev, but I've released another Project: Starfighter update since someone contributed the changes necessary to make it compile on Mac OS X. There is not currently a Mac OS X build, though, because I don't have access to a Mac OS X machine. [...]

Project: Starfighter 1.5.1 Released
     posted by onpon4, Thu 14 Jan 2016 08:24:57 PM UTC

While I was recording the new gameplay video, I noticed a huge problem: the amount of sound mines produce is incredibly distracting and annoying. It's a total sensory overload. So I've decided to make a new bugfix release to fix that. As always, you can find it here: [...]

     posted by onpon4, Wed 20 May 2015 03:47:36 PM UTC

First, I'd like to make a note about version 1.3.2: shortly after I released version 1.3.1, Guus Sliepen noted that the makefile wasn't installing music files, so that release was just 1.3.1 with a fixed makefile.
