The Mandate’s ship combat trailer raises shields, fires when ready

The Mandate’s ship combat trailer raises shields, fires when ready

Still-in-Kickstarter tactical space RPG The Mandate is barreling along with all sorts of teasers and interactive toys to try to get you to pledge some cash. Today: a trailer showing off space combat.

Specifically, this new vid has battle squadron Azimov – commanded by the player, loyal to the Mandate in this video – going to the aid of the starship Zukov, under attack by pirates. At least, that’s what it apparently shows. What I saw was various spaceships with shields firing at each other while bombastic military music played in the background.

The Mandate looks genuinely interesting, and it’s one of those things I really want to see get backed. Right now, developer Perihelion Interactive are at $174,000 of their $500,000 goal, with 34 days to go.

    Tim has been playing PC games for longer than he’s willing to admit. He’s written for a number of publications, but has been with PC Invasion – in all its various incarnations – for over a decade. When not writing things about games, Tim can occasionally be found speedrunning some really terrible ones, making people angry in Dota 2, or playing something obscure and random. He’s also weirdly proud of his status as (probably) the Isle of Man’s only professional games journalist.
