Star Villains and Space Heroes is a 3rd person space combat game. Conflict takes place in 3D space with realistic space physics – no atmospheric drag, for example. This allows for complex maneuvers and increases the challenge of piloting your ship. The game has, at the moment, three distinct factions, each with their own design philosophies, weapon loadouts and particular style. The full version of Star Villains and Space Heroes will add at least two (and possibly more) additional factions.
