transcendence.pngTranscendence isn't the latest of freeware releases, I'll give you that; it has been around for a couple of years, but it was only during this last weekend that I managed to finally give it a try and I must admit I was both impressed and hooked. Obviously (and following a little dance) I couldn't help but remind everyone of its existence and, hopefully, get people to play it for the first time and enjoy its brilliant arcade-shmup-adventure-exploration-sim gameplay and those dozens of randomly generated star systems.

Mind you, the game is pretty huge and you should probably set aside a few hours to properly enjoy it and fully appreciate its depth. Oh, and Star Control and Elite fans will be very happy indeed.
