Some leftovers from the ECTS 2002 show ... Brightstar Ent. is coming up with a few PC titles so today we hit them up for some more info and a few screens for : Drift - The Second Stone Age, RC Helicopter Indoor Flight Simulation and Virtual City 2002. Njoy!

Drift - The Second Stone Age

Set in deep space and featuring ships of staggering proportions, Drift promises a fast-paced, intelligent universe with unprecedented levels of action, animation and detail. A complex plot and non-linear mission design mean that players will enjoy more depth of gameplay, and level content will vary depending on the player's in-game performance.

The main key to Drift's compelling gameplay lies in its use of an incredibly advanced artificial intelligence (AI). During missions, AI ships act as squadrons in order to pursue their goals, dealing with multiple objectives and enemy assaults on every front.

"We expect Drift to set a new standard in both multi-player and single-player space combat sims," commented Brightstar's MD, Noel Hargrave.

Drift will feature squadrons of bombers and fighters equipped with an array of advanced weaponry for players to use in dogfights with opposing forces, or engage in combat with massive ships and destroyers. An intuitive in-game messaging system allows players to command intelligent squad-mates, redirect wingmen and request reinforcements.

With 28 single player missions, 4 different empires, over 60 different spacecraft, and up to 60 hours of gameplay; Drift promises a whole new challenge and experience for the space combat veteran.

Virtual City 2002

Virtual City 2002 is a city construction and management simulator that allows you to build and control an entire city. Take care of the welfare of its populace by building shelters for the homeless, promoting healthy living, and even setting up free computer courses; Protect the environment with waste reduction, recycling and conservation plans; Fund scientific research, anti-smoking campaigns, and crime prevention. Each city has its own set of goals that need to be achieved such as meeting the standards for an environment friendly city; this isn't always made easy though with disasters including floods, tornados, and fire just around the corner.

Helicopter Indoor Flight Simulation

RC Helicopter is a progressive, challenging flight simulation. Successfully navigate your way through rooms, hallways and corridors collecting points to gain access to bigger and faster 1:48 scaled replica helicopters. Each helicopters movement has been calculated using motion physics to emulate flight for both R/C control and real flight control.
