“Our goal in forming Fugitive Games was to leverage years of AAA experience to bring high-quality titles to the indie space,” said Ben Jones, development director at Fugitive Games. “With Into The Stars our four-man team has crafted a massive world that looks, feels and sounds more like a AAA title than an indie game thanks to the power of Unreal Engine 4. We think Into The Stars’ distinctive gameplay and replayability will resonate with the community, and we look forward to fan feedback during Early Access to help enhance the game.”
The debut title for Fugitive Games, Into The Stars has already earned critical acclaim by receiving the Best-in-Play award at this year’s Game Developer’s Conference.
