Open Hard Vacuum has been released!
Subject description: Straight from then time machine with some heavy twists and time shifts.
Matthias M. has recently released OpenHV, which is a game that uses OpenRA Engine and it is inspired on an old game called Hard Vacuum, which ended up not being released at all, except for its art graphics.
It is hard to say how much OpenHV differs from the original design ideas for Hard Vacuum since the original game was not released nor documented properly. However, OpenHV is playable and includes multiplayer and proper AI bots. Here's a screenshot:
An Open Source 90s Science-Fiction Real-Time Strategy game with Multiplayer (LAN and internet) support, competent skirmish AI as well as an integrated map editor. All the assets are licensed under Open Source compliant terms. It is very easy to mod.
In 1993 a game called Hard Vacuum was in development. Heavily inspired by Dune 2, the father of the modern RTS, it had ambitious goals, but it was never released to the public. Decades later the pixel art was released under a free license. The starting point for this project.
If you like classic Westwood Studios style real-time strategy games be sure to check out OpenRA upon which this game is built.
