Check out the Dark Wing preview below!
Millenia ago, a rogue black hole viciously and without prejudice engulfed a solar system and flung its planets unceremoniously into the abyss of space. A human-like species known as the Quails worked with technologies beyond the imagination as they constructed the Dark Wing. Scientist Simon Fredrick had the idea to propel the planet of Tiberius through space by effectively transforming the rogue planet into a ship. Today, The Dark Wing has a new captain. Benedict Gunn, a fearless pilot, is tasked with shepherding the resilient people of Tiberius across the galaxy, in search of a new system to call home.
