Independence War ( I-War for short ) is a series of Space-Simulation games set in the future.

Featuring advanced 3D graphics, atmospheric audio, and a realistic flight model, the games feature compelling storylines and innovative game design.

Physics and cunning play a part as you use advanced weapon systems and piloting techniques to defeat your adversaries, and true proficiency can only come from mastering your starship.

The first Independence War game won CGW's coveted 'Space Simulation of the Year' award in 1998. (See Reviews)

Released in the US and Europe in 1999, Independence War Deluxe Edition (Special Edition in Europe) included the original game, plus Independence War "Defiance", a completely new game from the perspective of a rebellious Independent pilot.

Independence War 2: Edge Of Chaos, an entirely new game based in the Independence War universe, is on sale now.

Winner of Gamespot's 'Space Simulation of the Year' award in 2001 (See Reviews); it couples innovative gameplay in a free-form universe of 16 star systems, with over 60 storyline missions, the game takes the Independence War series to a new level.

The Independence War series of games are available for PC CD-ROM.
