Distant Star: Revenant Fleet is a real-time strategy game for PC. You take control of a small fleet of A’Kari ships and must strengthen your numbers as you traverse the galaxy, battling your sworn enemy, the Orthani, before they destroy your homeworld of AoS. Players can control a fleet of of up to 5 ships (from any combination of 8 classes) as they progress through dynamically generated missions.
2015 British Academy Scotland Award winners Blazing Griffin offered a fascinating look into the inspiration behind Distant Star: Revenant Fleet, as well as exploring the complexities involved in the game's creation. The panel discussion was followed by a 'Let's Play' interactive gaming session with the audience.
Brian McDonald hosted this event, which took place on Thursday 28 January 2016 in GMAC, Glasgow.
