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 gets a new exciting mission added to the game, as well as a redesign of the Ensign-1.

It's been a long time coming, but the Ensign-1 has finally been redesigned, and textured to a quality worthy of the game. Unfortunately, this one doesn't have an interior level, so you won't be able to pilot the capitol ship anymore.
In addition to a new Ensign getting added to the game, I've also taken a few models from the incredible
Sol Command ( www.solcommand.com )
and brought them into the game. This has led to an exciting new mission...
In this mission you'll find you're facing a new enemy, some space pirates who have been hired by an unknown organization to stop your mission of reclaiming the earth. You'll encounter a larger scale battle which even the Ensign-1 can't stay out of this time, and you'll finally getting some wingmen as support. You'll also come across your first enemies that make use of homing missiles against you!
I hope you enjoy it! Future updates will included even more missions with some cool ideas and surprises that I have in store for you. There will also be refined combat mechanics, including afterburners, improved missiles, and new plasma weapons. Stay tuned!
