Developed by a three-man team of industry veterans, what started off as a hobby project became reality upon successful kickstarter funding. Heavily inspired by games like Wing Commander, Freespace and X-Wing, Eterium’s goal is to bring back a simpler space sim game. By foregoing some modern space sim standards such as economy simulations, massive multiplayer and spaceship modifications, Eterium concentrates on the roots of what made spacesim games great: the combat and gameplay. Eterium walks the line between arcade action and complex simulation while boasting tight controls, challenging AI opponents and a damage system that will degrade your ships performance as you absorb damage. Take on the role of Eric “Banshee” Craig, a young pilot in the United Earth Alliance spaceforce and work you way up the killboard as you take on increasingly difficult missions. Battle in asteroid fields, mine fields and even the upper atmosphere of a gas giant as you take on fighters, bombers, destroyers and dreadnaughts.
