Escape Hatch Entertainment has just announced its brand new space combat title Starlight Inception for PlayStation Vita. Fans of the Star Wars Galactic Battlegrounds titles will likely be familiar with developer Garry Gaber from his time at LucasArts.

The developer will also be kicking off a Kickstarter campaign to help spread the word about the game. You can find out more information in the official press release below.

Escape Hatch Entertainment, LLC today announced the development of Starlight InceptionTM, a space combat game with modern elements of strategy and tactics, planned for PC and Playstation® Vita.

In Starlight Inception, players will explore our star system a hundred years from tomorrow, where World War IV has erupted. And the future is a dangerous place. You are a young space pilot deep in the midst of a giant battle struggling to protect what remains of humanity.

Starlight Inception is the new game from Garry Gaber, twenty year game industry veteran and formerly of LucasArts, where he acted as the project leader of Star Wars Galactic Battlegrounds and Star Wars Galactic Battlegrounds: Clone Campaigns.

“I’m really passionate about the space combat genre and am very excited to be putting together a game that is the natural descendant of beloved titles like Wing Commander and X-wing vs. TIE Fighter, but with a modern spin,” said Garry Gaber, the President and Chief Creative Officer of Escape Hatch Entertainment. “We have a robust storyline, and different single player and multiplayer modes to keep players excited and enthralled.”

“Kickstarter allows us to go directly to the fans of this kind of game, deliver our message and get them involved in a way that was previously impossible through traditional publishing channels.”

Added Melissa Gaber, Vice President of Escape Hatch Entertainment, “Starlight Inception is a realistic free-roaming game that will have high quality voice actors, great sound, richly detailed art and an involving storyline. It will have great production value from beginning to end.”

Starlight Inception is planned for a Q3 2013 release, and will be launching a campaign on Kickstarter.com on Tuesday, April 3rd at 9:00 AM CST.
