The author of Onyx, a singleplayer space combat game project, sent in an update:
Well, it’s been a short time, but a lot of things have sort of happened. Among them is a pseudo-decision that I’ll add more to Onyx, but not in any serious way. Given that fact I’ve decided to open the “beta” up to anyone who wants to try things. The beta page is open to anyone who cares. Go nuts. By the way, the beta page has download links on it.
With things opened up feel free to email anyone you think may be interested and send them a copy. The licensing is still a little flaky, but nothing too atrocious I don’t think. I’ll correct the credits to reflect testers and resource ownership in the near future, but I’m not going to sit on this thing until then.
I’d like to thank the preliminary testers. They did very good work. I do intend to fix most of the bugs mentioned in the semi-near future. I’d also encourage anyone else who pokes at the stupid thing to file more bugs.
Enjoy as much as is possible. This isn’t the end, just a beginning of something new. Hopefully the something new won’t suck :)
There have been a few people asking for a forum to post general comments, so here it is. Add your random comments to this thread. It will be the official, non-official thread for berating Onyx.
Go nuts people. I want insults! I’ve started Project Orange, and those who offer the best insults will get first dibs on the Project Orange beta when it comes about… hopefully sooner than 3 years from now. Comment-a-rama here
