We are finally announcing our in development space action RPG, Drox Operative, today. You can read the game's description and feature list on the Drox Operative overview (http://www.soldak.com/Drox-Operative/Overview.html) page.

This would explain why things have been quiet lately. :)
In the second paragraph of the overview, you refer to Operators rather than Operatives.

That's why press releases always make me nervous. I worry that some major screw up is going to get through. Luckily in this case I bet most people miss it, well at least I hope.

Thanks for pointing this out as usual Roswitha.

Looking forward to it. Also: Dreadnought instead of Dreadnaught I'm guessing?

Looks like it is spelled both ways commonly. I guess we will have to pick one or the other.

A screenshot would be nice, but maybe it's too early.

I'm not sure when we will have screenshots, but it shouldn't be too much longer.

So far it seems that people like the name, although I'm not positive I would hear any negative feedback about the name yet if people didn't like it.

Yes that would be the best.
A name is just a name. But I wouldn't choose that one for sure.

It's single player. Here's the list from the overview. Multi is a note at the end. :)


Explore a dynamic and evolving galaxy
Explore a unique sector of the galaxy in every game, with different "monsters", ship components, quests, and even races
Fight in the galactic war between the various alien races
Battle hundreds of different enemy starships
Build the coolest and deadliest starship in the galaxy
Outfit your ship with thousands of components and crew
Adventure with your friends with co-op multiplayer

Thanks Roswitha! The write up didn't make all that much sense to me.

A name is nothing more than a way of keeping track for the game. Most people dont judge the game based on the name unless their experience with the gameplay is not good.

Without too much bias, I think the name is good because it implies some sort of secret mission and insidious part about the game that you can find out.

I don't foresee us making a multiplayer only game ever. Nothing is impossible, but it's just not likely. :)

This game sounds very cool, and I laughed at the part about how you wouldn't have to run a "whiny" empire (so true, so true!). I definitely will have my money ready for this one.

I hope that your ship is VERY customizable, so that you can create a unique ship each time you play a campaign.

Wow, it's going to be out sooner than I expected. I guess somebody is going to be busy. ;)

Glad to see you're well on the way to having another game for me to try out.

I really like Din's Curse & Demon Wars, so I anticipate enjoying the space setting just as much. Please let me know when there's a pre-order available, as I'll be more than happy to do so, when I can.

When we have preorders available we'll announce it on our website, forums, newsletter, twitter, facebook, the press, etc. Hopefully you won't be able to miss it. :)
