Remote Outpost Games is a podcast celebrating the best video games in history, stranding industry figures on a remote getaway and asking them to justify which 5 games they would take with them to await rescue.
In this episode, hosts John Stabler and Christopher Jarvis talk to Industry Veteran and Indie Newcomer James Buckle of Engage Pixel about his latest game – Captain Kaon – and his decade-long history working on the Total War series.
Captain Kaon is a new gravity shooter inspired by Thrust and created in a homage style to the Amiga era. As part of this show we have THREE Steam keys to give away for Captain Kaon, so listen in for the rules and send us your entries!

Major Bugs which have been reported.
Mouse going mental :- workaround is to go to options graphics menu and change the mouse settings to Panel.
Too Many Friends :- This is an issue for only the more popular members of the community, turns out if your friends list is too long, it takes too long to render and causes issues. This needs a patch but as long as you avoid the friends tab it should be fine. (?)
Servers seem to be ‘Flakey’ over the Easter Weekend.Response from Dav (Warning The posts in that thread a bit ‘salty’)
The Galaxy Map :- This is an issue with the UI for people not using the standard resolution and needs an urgent path
The Formidine Rift has been solved. –
Although in response to saltiness over the “solution” being essentially a POI, Drew has asserted that they have not “solved” the rift mystery – only found a part of it.

If Salomé is captured by hostile players, and they offer her a chance to surrender, she may be receptive to it. Her acceptance of surrender obviously depends on her captors being open to negotiating a bounty with those groups or individuals who have placed them. Her captors may simply decide to kill her there and then and be done with it. But at least there is now a middle-ground option on the table that gives roleplayers an avenue to make an impact in the end game narrative.
A quick heads up on something cool and a little bit Elite-related.My dad is involved with the Institution of Structural Engineers Educational Charity which runs an annual International Young Engineers Design Competition. This year they decided on a space theme, so he foolishly asked me for some ideas. I sent him a bunch of ED screenshots of Ocellus and Coriolis space stations and said “What about one of these?”.
….long story short:https://www.istructe.org/about-us/funds-and-donations/educational-trust/the-young-structural-engineers-internationalThought I’d let you know as it would be cool to spread the word in case any Cmdrs out there are real life engineers and want to have a go…. and because it’s another of those cool “ED influences real world science and engineering” stories.
Great to meet some of you at Elitemeet, which was an awesome day.
Thanks for all your work on the podcast, great stuff – Keep doing what you do.

Starfighter Inc which is a first person mission-based multiplayer cockpit shooter with a focus on scientific realism and narrative are relaunching their kickstarter which they narrowly missed last year.
ssuming that we are going to have multiple players in the same ship, in the main game, prior to Lavecon 2017 (if not in main game, then in beta surely?):How likely is it, that we will see…… 3 x VR players in the same ship, at the same time, in the same room, at Lavecon this year? Perhaps with all 4 viewpoints recorded simultaneously? Do you like a challenge? *evilgrin

Formindine Rift – Now that all the bases have been discovered, there was a daring heist on Danelle’s Progress (The only market place to buy Alloys) by a Cobra using the call sign of Lima Uniform Charlie (Could it be the return of Commander Luciano Prestigio Giovanni?)
