Welcome!

If you’ve made it here, you probably know who I am. Maybe you have heard of Wing Commander and its sequels, or perhaps Strike Commander, Privateer or Freelancer.

If not, you’re still welcome!

I grew up making video games. I sold my first game at the age of 13 and created Wing Commander when I was 21. But 10 years ago, at the height of my career I took a break. Not because I stopped loving or playing games but because I had become frustrated with the limits of the technology at the time to realize my vision.

I decided to pursue my desire to create detailed worlds and tell sophisticated stories in film.

I always said the moment I became interested in making games again was when I was going to come back.

With the power of today’s computers and the reach of the internet I finally feel I have the tools to build the connected experience that I always dreamed of. A world that would be more satisfying and richer than any film I could work on.

With films you tell stories but with games you create worlds.

If you’ve played my games, you’ll know that’s what I love to do.

I’m here to tell you that I have been working on something for just under a year, something that embraces everything that my past games stood for but takes it to the next level.

I hope you’ll be as excited by it as I am.

My new endeavor is still in its early stages but I invite you to take the journey with me.

If you register below you’ll become an insider that will not only give you early access to the game’s website and forums, but you will also get the opportunity for rewards and privileges that no one else will get. It’s my way of showing how important your early involvement and support is.

The full announcement will be at 10am Eastern Standard Time (UTC -5) on the 10th day of the 10th month of this year.

My name is Chris Roberts.

And if you would indulge me I would like to create a world for you.


Track his progress here.

Ha! I went down to the shop and rummaged through some old boxes and found a nice selection of my old favorite space-sims.
Sadly, I don't seem to have my original Privateer or the first three Wing Commanders, I may have sold them or they are in another box.

Nice, cant wait for details...

I should dig out the program I created based on Open GL 1.0, some sort of advanced FL game, was nice stuff I made there but dead for over 5 years now :(

Bummer, have to move my ass to do something, spent 3 years of work on it ... Would be a shame to see all that work go to waste... Have to pull out my finger!

I loved Privateer, and Privateer II, but never clicked with Wing Commander. I found that one too difficult for my Clumsy Thumbs to manage. (I would have compared it to FBU's Big Daddy Mod to play.)

Speaking of Old Games....I am looking for a Dos Machine that I can play Alien Legacy on...Any Chance??

I cut my first teeth on that.

I have DOS 7.0 here on disk, but no more 3 1/2 Floppy Drive to put them in.

DosBox can emulate old DOS programs, just google it to download it

With that I can run Duke Nukem on W7 and vista

I used to use Dos Box for the Star Flight games, It would not work with Alien Legacy though.
