Spaceware Ho! 5 Status Update
9:52 AM | IMG News | Comment on this story

In the past few months we've been giving readers small updates on Delta Tao's new title, Spaceward Ho! 5. While this game will be based on the previous incarnation in the series, it will sport many improvements. We recently got in touch with Joe Williams, President of Delta Tao, who gave us this update:

Yes, it's progressing well. If it had a staff of more than just me and
Peter, we'd probably have lots of web stuff about it.

It's rewritten from the ground up, so the user interface is all-new (though
quite familiar). It runs native in OSX.

The internet play, via, is working great.

Multiple ship types can now be joined into single fleets, with special
instructions for each ship type.

Fleets can be given manual routes of many hops. ("Go here, then here, then here, darn it.")

The AI is already substantially improved, though we have much more planned in this arena.

We don't announce release dates in advance, but we'll probably release a
beta internet-only version for testing well before the final

As you can see, there's been a lot of good progress on this classic. Delta Tao is shooting for a release hopefully sometime this winter. We'll keep you posted as Spaceward Ho! 5 gets further into development.
