Yes! I started playing the game early this year I think. I am an upcoming architectural engineer and computer programmer, and am starting a 2-d version of the Independence War games on Khan Academy. Here is what I have so far. Comsec Ad Thank you so much for saving the site. Also, my copy of I-war 2 works perfectly so far on my Windows 8.

I think your project is a cool idea, although you may get legal complications with it.

I believe the name "I-War" is protected and you also used at least one asset from the original game for Hoffers Wake. ;)

Nevertheless, I wish you good luck with it.

I'm very excited by the game! I just finished the time-critical mission where all the gunstars shut down from time to time and I have to disable them.

Afterwards, they all get destroyed - what the hell? So why did I even get them in the first place? :D This game is more unforgiving than Dark Souls! :D

And then I thought I will get a super-hardcore mission...no. I have to paint a ship. :D Great.

Space. The final frontier.

I played EOC a number of year ago and am still impressed with the gameplay and graphics and physics. As soon as I upgrade my laptop, it gets installed again!

I still play!
Though, I only play various iterations of Unstable Space. I haven't played the original vanilla game since I started modding it a decade ago.
I actually play on OSX, using a wrapper. It works better than on windows (?!). I have a big monitor (30inch) and run it at 2560x1600 and it still looks great!

Written in response to Schmatzler's previous post:

About these legal complications: I will keep the term I-War out of my titles and keep screenshots out of the final game. I plan to use screenshots to create a gallery so that people who use my program will know what the actual game looks like. I will give credit to Infogrames and Particle systems, and have links to this site. All I want from the program is to increase awareness of Independence War 2 and to develop and prove my own programming abilities. Does this sound good?
P.S. Good luck on your game.
