Stars in Shadow (formerly code-named "Hawkfleet") is an independent game title under development by Sven Olsen, tentatively scheduled for initial release some time in early 2014. It is a turn-based space 4X strategy game in the style of Master of Orion, with a strategic mode and a tactical combat mode.  I'll post more information about the game here as it becomes available.

This is the first set of ship sprites for the tactical combat portion of the game. They belong to the Ashdar, who are a race of imperialistic space dinosaurs. :D

Set of Phidi ship assets for Sven Olsen's starship combat game project (same as ship designs here). Updated with the second set, including the colony ship and heavy carrier.

The Phidi are an aquatic race of traders. They have essentially three multipurpose hulls: courier, tradeship and supership, which are modular and can be configured for warfare, commerce, or anything in between. The Phidi prefer to hire alien mercenaries to do most of their fighting for them.

Being aquatic, the habitation sections for the Phidi are filled with seawater. The caustic pattern on the sea pods is animated in the game engine; it looks pretty cool.

See the Phidi concept sketches here.

That's no moon...

A "doom star" for Sven Olsen's starship combat game project (same as ship designs here). This one doesn't use the same top-down perspective as the other ships and bases, but Sven felt the top-down concept was too flat and wanted more of a 3D feel for this one.

Concept art for Sven Olsen's starship combat game project (same as ship designs here).

A collection of design iterations for the Phidi, an aquatic race of traders. The Phidi ships are designed around commerce, and can be modified for warfare, but the Phidi prefer to hire alien mercenaries to do their fighting for them.

This one took quite a few iterations to get to the look we wanted.

Workhorses of Confederate navy, the Weston class frigates are a common sight within the Free Marches. Capable of acting efficiently in a in a variety of roles, they're, from CFC and STRATCOM perspectives, a perfect plug for any hole in the ever-growing wall that is Confederate sphere of influence.
