Indy game using TrackIR!

Post by dinky » Sat Jan 26, 2008 10:53 pm

I haven't seen this mentioned anywhere on the TrackIR website so I thought I should post it.

One of the better looking Independent games in Development I've seen is BSG: Beyond the Red Line. It's a game at first glance is similar to Freespace, a space flight game.

They just posted a News article on their ModDB page (Modification Database) with a flash video of their game running with the player using TrackIR.

You can see the video here at their News article page (it's the first video at the top):

And here is their official website:

Not sure if you NaturalPoint guys will try and support them, but I figured you should at least know about a great community supporting your awesome hardware.

I hadn't spotted that video before though. Excellent!

Yes, We've been working with them, and do indeed plan to support them as much as possible. In fact, back on the 3rd we added their game title to the public TrackIR software (we just haven't made a games page yet, as we haven't tested the game yet). I'll try to get the games page up asap.

edit: here is another link to the new video : http://www.moddb.com/games/6596/bsg-bey ... ine/videos

How bout for the original Freespace 2. Support for that would be great. That is the original game whose engine is used in BSG:BTRL.

Good call, Dallus.
We are talking with the guys about doing this as well. Too early to confirm, but yes we agree it would be a good move.
