Ares:Dogfighter is very early in development. However, there is a proof-of-concept version available to download which allows the player to take part in dogfights against AI-controlled enemy ships. This is one aspect of the game I wanted to check I could get right before proceeding further with the game. Please download it and let me know what you think. You can also check out the Releases page to see what features have been added.
It's very easy to record gameplay: just press the record button (currently key '7') and it will start recording, press again to stop recording. An .avi file will be created in your directory. Note that while recording, the framerate of the game will be reduced a little bit. Please upload your videos to Youtube or elsewhere for the world to see!
