Gimbal ... The top-down Wing Commander carrier war game.

Imagine blistering through the middle of a carrier face-off, escorting bombers on suicide runs, designing cruisers bristling with huge broadside cannons.

All in real time multiplayer. Top down, so you can see 100% of the action.

This is Gimbal.

Some of the Woot Events folks will be putting together a nice overview of this fine title in due time.

I think this game has some major potential for 32 on 32 at a LAN party where you can form fighter and bomber squads, frigate strike groups, and face off in Star Wars fashion.

What do you dudes think? http://www.gimbalgame.com

Gimbal FAQ

Can I get this cheap anywhere?
It's currently on for $5 if you use the code VIDYA.

Can I do a suicide run on the enemy carrier?
Collisions = damage. And yes, it will often mean death if you're a speed demon. Good option if your'e about to die.

Does sensor ping reveal ships at all ranges equally or does it factor in stealth?
Stealth is factored in. Small low-powered ships are harder to see. And the ping is a multiplier of your sensor power. So if you ping an AWACS sensor, you pretty much light up everything on the map.

Never get discouraged, just let your nerdy flourish.

Ah wow this sounds a bit like a dream LAN party game. We'll have to check it out for sure.

I wonder if the dev could set up a free weekend or a demo version in order for some of us to try it out at an event (or some sort of Blizzard-style "spawn" system would be nice).

Playing a game for the graphics is like watching porn for the story.

I just got out of a game where the carriers actually met up and started killing eachother. Podships were warping in and crashing into the carriers. Looked pretty hardcore.
