Richard Moss announcement:


I'll be playing Ambrosia Software classic Escape Velocity with its creator Matt Burch live on Twitch.tv next week, on Thursday the 23rd of June at 8pm Pacific. That's 11pm for US east coasters, 1pm Friday here in Melbourne, and 4am in the UK (sorry). If you can't make it, you'll be able to watch a replay afterwards. But if you can then you'll be able to ask questions in the chat for us to answer (and help me navigate the game after having not played in years).
Here's the link: https://www.twitch.tv/mossrc

Of course this is to help promote Richard's book, but I think it deserves a separate topic.

Current setup: macOS 10.11.x/2008 MacPro 3,1 Xeon 2 x 2.8GHz/8GB RAM/NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680 2GB

Only 153 votes on the GOG wish list and EV: Nova has 406.

Cast a vote next time you're in the neighborhood. It never hurts to try.

I always loved Escape Velocity, and played it and the sequels EV Override and EV Nova. Great games. If you want to play something similar You might want to try Endless Sky.
