Swarms of users rushed to download the game client at nineteen hundred hours. Our release was met with such extraordinary demand that our website was unavailable at first due to server flooding. These numbers are pretty remarkable, and a solid indication that space sims are still alive and well!

I always thought there was a big demand for space sims. Fortunately WCS was made by true fans of the genre and we didn't end up with a crappy/shallow consolized version of a game we used to love. I just hope that game developers will see that demand and maybe we will see new Wing Commander/X-Wing/Tie Fighter/Freespace (take your pick) in the near future.

Oh, and congratulations to the team :arrow:

Congratulations to the team for producing a product that matches any game company product and better than most of them.

Fifty thousand downloads in 24 hours is awesome; that might make EA perk its head up and resurrect the franchise in order to create a couple of new Wing Commander products, hopefully for the PC and not the game consoles.

Having played this for more than 12 hours now, all I can say is WOW! This is an amazing accomplishment for an independent, non-corporate group of dedicated enthusiasts. Where WC3 engaged the player through cinematics and mission branching, WC Saga has drawn me in through the complexity of the compelling story line and the realistic dialogue. The attention to detail that has been shown in developing this game is quite impressive. Major cudos! Here's to many more days of 50K+ downloads in the future... assuming that the mirrors can handle the pace :^)

Thank you! We're very glad that you are having so much fun with it :) Out of curiosity: How many missions did you complete in those 12 hours?

Well, being the perfectionist that I am, I replayed several of the missions to get better outcomes :^)

You have a long road ahead of you, buddy. That's ten (or fifteen, if you played the Prologue) missions out of fifty. ;)
