FileShack for the week of May 26, 2012 features a Unity of Command demo, a Skyjacker concept demo, and more!

Unity of Command demo

Experience the full Stalingrad Campaign on the Eastern Front of World War II in 1942 from both the Allied and Axis perspectives in Unity of Command, featuring 17 single-player missions, a 'what if'' scenario mode, a realistic weather system, and aggressive artificial intelligence. The weather plays an integral part of your inevitable strategy, so manage your supply-lines with a steady hand. Try out the demo for Windows or for Mac.

Skyjacker concept demo

Coming from developer Digitulus, this Skyjacker concept demo is a space combat simulator with advanced customization and realistic physics. This "immersive space saga weaves compelling storyline, next-gen graphics, and epic sound score reminiscent of 'Lord of the Rings,' following the player in his space adventures," is being funded by a Kickstarter project, with five days left! Did you enjoy the concept demo? Consider tossing a few spare dollars towards the goal.

[Update: The original project was cancelled, and restarted by the developers with community suggested features. Check out the new Kickstarter page.]

Tiny Token Empires demo

Play as one of five major empires in Rome, Greece, Egypt, Persia, or Carthage in this "casual strategy game" By Headup Games. Expand your domination over the world through city-building and war in this "crazy comical universe with goofball gods, super cute mythological monsters, clown legionnaries, and much more." Take the Windows demo or the Mac demo for a spin.

Star Prospector demo

Search the stars to find scattered resources and technology as a "one-person mining, salvage, and construction unit" as you take on missions across the galaxy in this single-player strategy game. The Star Prospector demo includes missions from the first two star systems, two levels of Tower Defender, and brand new features from the first game update!

Hack, Slash, and Loot demo

Plunder the vast reaches of Hack, Slash, and Loot in a journey of supreme justice in this "single-player turn-based dungeon crawler" filled with evil monsters and death. Try out the demo for Windows, Mac, and Linux.

      Too bad the Skyjacker kickstarter looks like it won't be successful. It looked way better than the Starlight Inception one

        Looks like it actually got cancelled, and the authors set up a new project a little over 17 hours ago.

        Even with the new details, I think it's going to be hard to reach $200,000.

          Just noticed that. At least it's not badly worded this time. It looks like a cool game, they just had the kickstarter at a bad time

            Most of it was the bad wording you mentioned. The original page was a mess. But yeah, having a half-dozen high profile franchise reboots drop at the same time didn't do us any favors. :|

            (In the interests of full disclosure, I pledged half of them too. Just because it was inconvenient for us doesn't mean they weren't good games!)

      Thanks for helping get Skyjacker out there! Can you point it to the new project location at ? We, er, kickrestarted to make changes suggested by backers and community feedback.

        Done! Good luck with this. I really hope it works out, since there can never be too many sci-fi games.

          Thank you sir! And agreed - the absolute WAVE of space games cresting on Kickstarter right about now warms my heart. :D
