About Star Fury
"Master of your Own Destiny" has a whole new meaning in Star Fury! As a starship captain you'll be exploring the furthest reaches of space in search of fame, fortune, and adventure. You might think upgrading your starship with high performance tech will be the advantage that keeps you alive - but that really isn't enough. In a galaxy filled with warp points, unfriendly aliens, asteroid belts, and cosmic storms, teaming up with large fleet operations might be your only chance for survival. Will you be a respectable trader or a bloodthirsty pirate? Your actions decide your fate in a hostile universe!
Star Fury is a science-fiction action RPG where you assume the role of a starship captain. The risks you're willing to take as commander secure your legacy of eternal wealth and power or ultimately are responsible for your demise in the cold emptiness of space.
Star Fury is anticipated to be released in June, 2005 and will be available for purchase at all major retailers at a suggested retail price of $19.99. Rated Everyone by ESRB. For more information please visit www.malfador.com.
