  • Excerpt: I admit it, I have a soft spot for indie games. Now nothing says indie gaming like two brothers who go into business together to develop titles largely by themselves. Such is the case with brothers Tom and Simon de Rivaz who founded the London based SaintXi games studio in 2008.

Light Of Altair (PC)

  • Excerpt: Light Of Altair is a game made by two people with a budget price tag of $15. We love independent titles on Gamingheaven because quite often they dont suffer from restrictive publisher control and are free to explore radical ideas outside the confines of a big budget production. As SaintXi develop and publish the game is it able to offer something entertaining for the relatively modest asking price?

  • Excerpt: Light of Altair is a Science Fiction management sim produced by Independent games studio SaintXi. The game mainly consists of building colony's on other worlds while trying not only to make them profitable but keeping your citizens happy. In some scenarios you'll also need to carefully plan battle strategy as you're drawn into wars with other factions competing for influence throughout the galaxy after the usual Nuclear war on earth in the not to distant future.
  • Pros: Addictive!, Nice to look at, Simple learning curve
  • Cons: Addictive!, Combat could be improved

  • Summary: Light of Altair est un jeu de stratégie assez grand public, et proposant un ensemble assez convenable pour un titre budget. Cependant, le fait qu'il soit en anglais ne plaidera pas en sa faveur dans les milieux francophones.

  • Summary: "Hra s názvem Light of Altair vás zavede do vesmíru. Tam na vás èeká mnoho misí, které na sebe nemají žádné spojení. To znamená, že pokud osídlíte planetu, tak v další misi nemáte pøístup k jejím zdrojùm. Nìkterým hráèùm tento styl vadí, ale jedná se jen o zvyk. ...

  • Summary: Невзирая на недостатки, игра затягивает. Азарт развития — хочется быть быстрее и сильнее прочих. Рост колоний приносит деньги, новые траты (исследования, флот, экспансия) и уйму забот. К интерфейсу нужно привыкнуть, но все же информация организована толково, важные инструменты и данные всегда под рукой. Light of Altair близка по духу к своим старшим сестрам в стратегическом поджанре 4X , вот только «X» у нее поменьше.

  • Conclusion: Некоторые студии очень любят давать своим творениям высокопарные названия, часто не имеющие никакого отношения к сути. Например, экономическая стратегия «Свет Альтаира» ( ) ни со светом, ни со Светом никак не связана. Она вовсе не обязана быть красивой и совсем не должна оказаться пафосной. Напротив, большое дело колонизации космоса здесь демонстрируется в эдаком обыденном виде. Нормальные будни сотрудника межгалактической корпорации. Что, никогда планеты не захватывали?
  • Pros: денег дают много.
  • Cons: скучно, уныло и безрадостно.
