Strike Suit Zero: the most Japanese game to ever come out of Guildford

EDGE - Strike Suit Zero’s aesthetic is eastern. This PC space dogfighter is neon blue and cherry-blossom pink, and casts the player as the pilot of a spaceship-cum-mecha – the eponymous Strike Suit. Its story – a tale of Earth’s struggle against the colonists it fired out to inhabit our galaxy’s other worlds – is told via anime-esque talking heads and subtitled text. But Strike Suit Zero isn’t Japanese. It’s from Guildford, and it’s being made by a team who class resolutely western games as their core influences. Born Ready Games was raised on space-based classics like TIE Fighter, Freelancer, and Starlancer. (PC, Strike Suit Zero)

Is that actually saying something?

Also can't help saying that the more I see of the game, the more I question it having a mech theme when its really just another space flight sim.

A really nice looking one with great designs overall, but still a space sim.

It is a space sim, and it's nice to see one in this day and age, whatever the style. Freespace 2 is a game I still go back to regularly.

Its a space sim that makes no use of its basic premise: the mech.

Some lame thing where it can stop on a dime and gets a power up doesn't count. It should be landing on and grabbing targets.

I really haven't read anything about this game, up until now.

Maybe it being a PC Only game has something to do with it.
