Outer space. It ain't all that great because you can't breath in it, but the video games set in it are generally cool, so the pros and cons kinda shake out. Case in point: Space Age, the next game from The Incident [$0.99] creator Big Bucket. Described as "a love letter" to the games the two-man studio enjoyed while growing up, it's a real-time strategy mash-up with adventure and stealth game sensibilities. Peep these images:

"It's a lot bigger and more ambitious than The Incident and we really hope you're going to like it," Big Bucket's Matt Comi notes on our message board. Big Bucket has a site up for the game where you can sign up to get more info when it's available. There's also an official Twitter account that'll be pumping out news down the line, probably.

In that forum post, by the way, Big Bucket tossed out two videos of the game's systems in motion. In this one, you'll see some dynamic weather and a bit of dialogue. In this one, you'll peep how mineral harvesting kinda works.

Judging by those videos, we get the sense that this is a project that's still early, so gear up for a wait. We'll keep you posted on the game as it progress, so maybe add it to your watch list on the TouchArcade app [Free], yeah?

      What is this 'Star Command' of which you speak?

    I'm not THAT much into RTS, but I remember spending nights playing Mega Lo Mania on my Amiga 500+. And somehow, I'm totally getting the vibe here. GotY material probably.

    • Stustaff

      I think your probably right about it probably being a probable GotY.
      Although only if they are able to have enough ability to ably complete the project to the potential it potentially has!
      And I think it's probable they have the ability to meet that potential.

      Dude, Mega Lo Mania! That takes me back. I hope this game is like that one, totally awesome.

  • curtneedsaride

    Man, if you could jump on a ship and fly around, land and do stuff on the planet, and fly off again at will, there would be no reason to download Star Command... But, since this probably won't have any ship play, it'll be a nice companion to Star Command for me.

  • dylanmannen

    Pls add GC achivments to The incident ^^ it would be awesome

  • Dams

    Looks like maniac mansion 🙂

  • Annand Virk

    Looks interesting. Wouldn't mind seeing some gameplay footage.

  • Gamer_Kev

    Nice graphics. They really remind me of those great point n click adventures from back in the 90's. They also make it so I can't help but wish this was a full point n click adventure, instead of a mix of genres.
