Welcome to Epic

The Epic team is hard at work on the first release, now titled the "Middle States". This release centers around freeform gameplay. It has a new economic engine, mercenaries for hire, and save (almost) anywhere. All this set in a new war torn star cluster. With new planets, textures, nebula and sound, the Flux engine never looked, sounded or played so good. 

Our second release will expand these features and replace the standard traffic scripts with a new, easy to customize design. We are calling our second release "Traffic". Pirates, corrupt police, and zealots will soon be found in trade lanes near you!

After a long and somewhat painful Beta test, in which a number of bugs (the worst not our own, but rather the stock games) were uncovered, the Beta test is winding down.  Our team leader, GrandpaTrout hopes to have a final release of Middle States within the next few days!  Stay tuned here and as ever on the forums for the final release annoucement.  Adventures in the Middle States lie just ahead!

The Epic team is looking for 4 or 5 dedicated Beta testers for a closed Beta. We expect to start testing on the 10th to the 15th of June. Please head to the General Forum if you are willing to put in some time helping us bug hunt. Thanks!
