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. The Scarrid 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.
