In Ensign-1 you play the role of a space fighter pilot returning from a deep space colonization mission. On arrival back to our own solar system, you find Earth has been colonized by a hostile alien force. It's now up to you, with the help of your mothership, the Ensign-1, to take it back
Ensign-1 allows allows for complete freedom in approaching objectives. You can fight from the safety of your spacecraft, or land and exit to explore space stations and carriers on foot. You can commandeer any spacecraft in the game, no matter how big or how small. Defend an asteroid base, or take the fight to the enemy with a huge mothership, friends manning turrets, it's your choice.
The game also features a multiplayer mode where players can explore a randomly generated galaxy, either fighting co-operatively to clean out enemy fighters, or battling each other for supremacy.
Ensign-1's missions 4 and 5 now feature recorded dialog for the mission, adding a bit of tension and scripted events to the mix!

Welcome back to another update! I wanted to write that Missions 4 and 5 now contain the same level of scripted events that the rest of the missions feature, literally ending the game with a bang now.
If you don't mind seeing what happens, watch this video of me playing through the Salacia mission.
Our cockpit artist Aurel_Tristan has pushed out another amazing piece of art recently, an alien cockpit.
This is currently only playable in the multiplayer portion of the game, when players choose to play as the alien faction, but I think it's one of our best cockpits yet! I'm hoping to work this into the single player missions in the future as well.
Coming up next I'm hoping to get the Ensign-1 in game and playable. Then after that I'm hoping to add some more missions to the game, so stay tuned for that!
