There’s plenty of things to shoot up (or is it shoot down?) besides other mechs in mech simulator Project Nimbus. The successfully Kickstarted PC game recently uploaded a couple of battle videos showcasing them going head-to-ship against enemy AI corvettes by themselves. Above you can see the rocket-heavy, Russian-leaning St. Petersburg-class corvettes.
In the videos, the devs also give us their take on the very different beast in the US Literal Class (Perhaps they mean the Littoral class of recent navy ships?) which is the US’s corvette airship—fast, nimble, but fragile.
It’s good to see that different classes of even a corvette will give players different approach thoughts. The St. Petersburg corvette spews wave after wave of lock-on missiles that you’ll either have to shoot down or simply dodge around for a chance to strike, for instance.
The Literal, however, will constantly try to lock your position down with long-range lasers before plugging you with rockets, or trying to simply out-maneuver you.
The game was also recently updated with some new cloud particle systems, so don’t expect the skybox to look as barrenly empty as it does right now either.
