Going in dry

Preview: Starfighter: Eclipse

On May 21st the sci-fi romance visual novel Starfighter: Eclipse was officially released. This game is available on PC, tablet, smartphone, and can even be played through most current web browsers. Starfighter: Eclipse was developed by Date Nighto using htmlVN, which allows it to be played on multiple platforms. This visual novel is based on the popular adult webcomic Starfighter by HamletMachine.

Starfighter is an ongoing webcomic drawn by HamletMachine, which contains graphic sexual visuals, sci-fi themes, and a distinct, striking art style that has made it globally popular. The comic follows a Navigator, Abel, and his new partner, Cain, as they confront alien threats, secrets within the Alliance, and their own desires. Characters from the comic will appear in Eclipse, along with a new protagonist and crewmates.

Starfighter: Eclipse will feature an entirely new adventure in the Starfighter universe, and was written and illustrated under the creative direction of series creator HamletMachine.

Brooklyn, New York –, the visual novel based on popular adult webcomic Starfighter by HamletMachine, is now available for purchase. The first official game release by Date Nighto, Starfighter: Eclipse features a new story set in an 1980s-inspired science fiction universe, with male/male sexual relationships for the player to pursue and all new characters and art in the webcomic’s distinctive style.

Join Helios, the newest Fighter on the starship Kepler, as he and his shipmates investigate a derelict alien ship. Starfighter: Eclipse offers multiple romance options, plot routes, and endings as you navigate the difficult politics and relationships aboard the Kepler.

Starfighter: Eclipse was successfully crowd-funded through Kickstarter in April of 2014. It raised over $143,000 for its development, with over 2,600 backers and twice the target goal. This ranks it as the fourth most funded visual novel in Kickstarter history. This visual novel also features an original soundtrack, by Starfighter soundtrack composers Emily Elizabeth and Samm Neiland. Starfighter: Eclipse retails for $20 and will be available to adults ages 18 and up, exclusively through DateNighto.com
