Please can you help me identify a game I bought and played on my first PC around 1992?
It was a 2D, top down game with a small spaceship that you controlled and remained centre-screen. It was a story-driven adventure game with more emphasis on arcade elements. Between encounters with other ships you traveled around a huge open space map that you could easily get lost in. Progress was made by learning coordinates through conversations and battles, then you could fly to the next area of the story. I think there was some kind of 'warp' drive acquired to travel faster between coordinates.
The first half of the game came as shareware. I completed this, then sent away for the second half which came to me on a floppy via mail order. It seemed a very similar distribution model to games like Wolfenstein, Commander Keen etc from that time, but I have looked through lists of games by iD and Apogee and not found anything.
