I went too there website and it is down and I cannot find anything on the game that is for this year anywhere. I will try looking more but I think its dead and if so I will be removing this forum area if trying to contact the developer fails for some updated info.
Thanks for the update, I am sure you know this already but you do know there is another game called Ad Astra (http://www.a-astra.com/)? You won’t have any legal issues with making a game with the same title as another?
Not necessarily, I remember the case of Windows vs Lindows (Linux-windows in one platform), MS suited the crap out of the devs because of some sort of name infringement thing and they went bust. Same thing happened to Battlestar: Harbinger (now called Battlevoid: Harbinger). There are more cases like that. They should really look into it.
My first thought was that the Ad Astra author after a 6 year pause has made his very nice game online instead of going on with pure single player, which is difficult, but then I was deceived. This is just an indication that something is amiss. He won’t be too happy to know about this name I think, unless he has agreed upon in advance.
Not sure where the actual state of this game is, it seems stalled and everyone is right there could be a legal issue here with the name as well so who knows if this will ever come to light. I will give this game a for more months and move it to the archive/shipyard section.
