Starship captain games


Icarus Proudbottom Teaches Typing was a game about typing in much the same way that Frog Fractions was a game about dodging projectiles - ie it wasn't. Holy Wow Studios' game quickly ventured into uncharted, and hilarious, territory - just like their newest project, Icarus Proudbottom: Starship Captain is planning to, it seems. From the looks of things it's essentially FTL as an adventure game/bridge captain simulator, viewed from the perspective of a starship captain rather than some omniscient thing in the sky. The Kickstarter trailer is wonderful. It is also below.

This isn't the first spaceship bridge simulator , of course, but it is one of the first I'll be able to play without having to recruit several accomplices, computers and costumes (hey, you may as well go the whole hog). The voice acting is a little scrappy in the above video, but I think that adds to the charm, at least when the dialogue appears to be so very cromulently written.

In Holy Wow's own sacred words, "to control the IBS Sea Pickle [that's the name of your spaceship], you need to issue commands to your crew. Talk to Digby to set a course or warp to distant planets. Talk to Mark 22 to manage your weapons systems and shields. Talk to Jerry to scan objects and manage your ship's power levels. Talk to Kelso to communicate with other ships or objects."

They do note in big bold text however that IP: Starship Captain is "not an action game, a strategy game, a build-a-ship simulator, or a 4X Space Epic" - it's a "character-driven adventure game & bridge simulator whose goal is to make you feel the pressure and joys of being a captain and communicating with your crew". Essentially it's that bit in Star Trek where Kirk/Picard taunts some ululating alien captain while issuing orders to his crew - I'd say there's more than enough room in this universe for one of those.

If you have quatloos to spare for their Kickstarter , the team are asking for $50,000 to make Starship Captain happen. The money will go towards ensuring they don't "starve to death during this time, or go into financial ruin for life if our appendixes burst". Well, I SUPPOSE that's fair enough.

Interestingly, there are no stretch goals present here, with the fabulous reason given that the team want to avoid "bloat". You'll know bloat if you've played any Ubisoft game made since Assassin's Creed 2, so I hope you'll find Holy Wow's bold decision as reassuring as I do.

For mysteries, it’s the gumshoe; romance novels, the busty maiden; fantasy novels, the young adventurer; political thrillers, the idealistic lawyer.

In science fiction, the archetypal hero is the starship captain – doughty scientist-explorers setting off across the uncharted reaches of the cosmos in search of new life, new civilizations. You know the drill.

This is a list of 20 famous starship captains from fiction. (To me, a starship is an interplanetary vessel – interstellar seemed too limiting. As a result, there are no historical starship captains as of yet. Except maybe L. Ron Hubbard.)

The title is intentionally misleading, meant to get me Diggs and hits. This is the 20 starship captains I chose to write about, in rough order of how much they interest me. The top five, however, are in my opinion THE TOP FIVE.

Please comment below. Let me know if I forgot anyone important. Just please, please if you’re going to flame me, read the whole article!

If you’re going to choose a captain, you want the smartest, strongest, healthiest guy. The one with leadership experience. The one with the best tan.

Picture this: You're the captain of a starship, having just warped through space after narrowly avoiding a rebel fleet that wants you dead. You now find yourself face-to-face (or ship-to-ship) with an unknown alien vessel. They demand you surrender one of your crew in exchange for safe passage. To hell with that! You open fire, catching them off guard--but it isn't long before they return the favor. A laser shot blows a hole through your engine room, damaging the core and leaving you dead in the water. You send your chief engineer to repair the damage as you continue the battle.

I grew up as an immense Star Wars fan, watching the movies every chance I could. My dad was heavily into Star Trek, and we had a friendly family feud over which was superior. As I grew up, I realized that there was clearly something to this Star Trek thing--and as a responsible nerd, I should educate myself. Every single episode of the original Star Trek series and The Next Generation are available on Netflix, so why the hell not. Faster Than Light arrived right around the time I had finished the Kirk era and was just beginning my love affair with TNG. I was entranced with how Picard handled his crew and managed being captain of a massive star ship.

My PC setup at home has dual monitors, so after work, you could normally find me glued to my seat with TNG on one screen and FTL on the other. I was living out my star ship captain fantasy as I watched what later became one of my favorite shows of all time. It was the perfect combination, and often I would find myself giving the same orders as Picard or trying to mimic what was happening in the show with my current game of FTL. I had achieved sci-fi nerd nirvana.

You're probably looking at the pictures posted here and saying "He can't possibly be talking about that game." Indeed I am. The top-down view of your ship gives you a perfect all-knowing perspective of everything that's going on with your vessel and crew. The simplified graphics add to FTL's overall charm, letting you play out extremely dramatic events in your head as you watch little crew members scurry all over your ship manning their posts. You can name your starship and customize the names of your crew. That makes it even more heartbreaking when your good friend Lucas gets trapped in a room ablaze with fire and perishes in a most gruesome fashion.
