Astrakore: New Trailer; New Look & Style

Although it certainly doesn’t look much like an Ultima game, Astrakore is described by its creator as an “Ultima-like”. Indeed, the basis for Astrakore’s story is Ultima 5; Geoffrey White didn’t want to do a direct copy of Ultima 5, so he chose to set it — or something that told a very similar story, one in which your character is a wanted man — in space, who ultimately ends up fighting against something that threatens the whole galaxy.

This latest video from Mr. White showcases some of the recent stylistic changes that have been made to Astrakore, and also features several minutes of gameplay (with commentary). Astrakore is still a way off of being released, but there are some new screenshots to check out at either the project entry here or the game’s official website.
