In Gratuitous Space Battles, the player takes on the role of supreme admiral of embarrassingly large fleets of spaceships, which are all individually designed by the player, and is in charge of placing them in formations and issuing orders for them to fight against AI-controlled enemy fleets
This demo shows off Gratuitous Space Battles, the game that drops you into a huge space battle being fought in the name of something-or-other of no consequence.
Gratuitous Space Battles is a strategy / management / simulation game that does away with all the base building and delays and gets straight to the meat and potatoes of science-fiction games: The big space battles fought by huge spaceships with tons of laser beams and things going 'zap!', 'ka-boom!' and 'ka-pow!'.
