Stars in Shadow (formerly code-named "Hawkfleet") is an independent game title under development by Sven Olsen, tentatively scheduled for initial release some time in early 2014. It is a turn-based space 4X strategy game in the style of Master of Orion, with a strategic mode and a tactical combat mode.
I'll post more information about the game here as it becomes available.

This is the first set of ship sprites for the tactical combat portion of the game. They belong to the Ashdar, who are a race of imperialistic space dinosaurs.
