February 4th, 2015, 18:53
Seems Iceberg Interactive announced today they are publishing another Space strategy game. The game is called CERES by a small indie developer named Jötunn Games.

Renowned for its prestige collection of space games, publisher Iceberg Interactive announces it has signed yet another promising title, tactical space combat game Ceres (PC) from Iceland-based developer Jötunn Games. The game is set for a Q2-2015 release on digital platforms and boxed in retail stores.

In a world where humans, monsters and machine-gods fight for survival, you play the role of a young adventurer, who just got his hands on his first spaceship, and is determined to make a name for himself. Build up a squadron, fight in space against pirates, warships, mythical monsters. Negotiate, trade, loot everything you can get your hands on and ultimately find out the reasons behind what happened to planet Earth - that is, IF you survive, for the universe turns out to be a very hazardous place.

Iceberg Interactive CEO Erik Schreuder says: ”Over the past year, Ceres has already garnered a strong reputation on IndieDB, and with our guidance and sci-fi games expertise added to the mix, we are confident we will take this indie gem to the next level and aim to exceed gamers’ expectations! If you like sci-fi games this should definitely be on your radar for mid-2015.”

Jötunn Games CEO Tryggvi Hákonarson says: "This game has been in the works on and off for about four years now and has changed quite a lot since its humble beginnings as a Homeworld clone. It’s been a struggle but a fun struggle nonetheless and receiving positive feedback from the community has been very encouraging so far. If you’re into rather hectic space combat with lots to micromanage, then this game is for you."

So this might be a mix of Homeworld and space exploration games like Freelancer?

It looks like a Homeworld clone with the ability to manage your smaller fleets better. I see no mention of being like freelancer mentioned at all in the announcement.

Well the main webpage also says this so it's not a space simulator.
If you ever wondered how it would have been to fully control and customize a small battle squadron in Homeworld, Elite, Nexus: the Jupiter Incident or hack your way into enemy ships in cyberspace,then this game is for you !
I also found a new trailer that might help explain this.
