Flatspace II: The Rise of the Scarrid is the sequel to Flatspace. Almost a
year in development, the game was made during 2005. The fundamentals of the game
are the same as in Flatspace, the game is a space trading game with a top down
viewpoint. Many of the controls and upgrades are the same in both games, but
there are some major differences between the first game and Flatspace II.
The Final Frontier
Like its predecessor, Flatspace II is a space trading game with a top-down
viewpoint that includes rogue-like elements such as a choice of character and a
revealing map. Unlike the first game though, Flatspace II includes artifact
objects that can be obtained using a new a guild system. If you trade enough for
example, you can get trading upgrades such as enhanced defences, and Alien
Hunters can obtain special weapons and ships.
There are two races in Flatspace II, human and scarrid. A state of cold war
exists between the races, and although they share technology they cannot
communicate and skirmishes between races are common. Both governments pay a
bounty for killing and capturing members of the opposite race.
