This game is fantastic. I can't wait for the full release.

Escape Hatch Entertainment, LLC today announced that Starlight Inception™, the successful Kickstarter project, has entered closed beta as of Friday to exuberant raves from backers and prepurchasers.

A Kickstarter backer had this to say: “This game is fantastic. I can’t wait for the full release.” Jason Forster said: “This is one really good sim…can’t wait for more to try.”

Asked about the Sony Playstation Vita Beta, Garry Gaber stated, “We are putting the finishing touches on our Beta submission to Sony this week. We anticipate making this available to our backers and pre-purchasers soon after.”

Escape Hatch is dedicated to producing a triple A product and making good on their promise of backer involvement. “We’ve really been diligent in putting the player at the center of our design – we have the ability to rapidly iterate changes and to respond to user feedback and bug reports quickly. This buys us a much better game…a much better experience for the player… in the long run, and we are super excited to hear players’ reactions,” said Garry Gaber, project leader and owner of Escape Hatch Entertainment.

Starlight Inception offers a cutting edge space simulation with a single player campaign, a single player casual mode revolving around defending your mothership (a sort of “3D Tower Defense-type game,” according to Gaber), and a robust multiplayer mode which includes several battle arenas for spacefighter pilots to flex their dogfighting skills. There are over twenty crafts to choose from with configurability before and during battle.

“You can outfit the ships with weapons and equipment in the hangar bay, then adjust energy nodes while in combat to fine tune your ship’s performance,” said Gaber.
