Artemis Spaceship Bridge Simulator
Somewhere in space this may all be happening right now.
Changes with this new version include:All new artwork; new spaceships and a new user interface. Price reduction to $40 for a bridge license (valid for 5 computers). Up to 6 crews can now battle each other or work together in jump-in multiplayer. Full online play is now possible. So the game is no longer only for LANs. Added asteroid fields. Added three different torpedoes: homing, nuke, and mine. More customization options. Added the ship editor tool. Now modders can add their own enemy ships to the game. Artemis is a multiplayer, multi-computer networked game for Windows. Artemis simulates a spaceship bridge by networking several computers together. Unlike many networked multi-player games, Artemis was designed to be played by 3-6 players together in one room.
In Artemis, one computer is the main screen, while the others serve as one of the five workstations (Helm, Communication, Engineering, Science, and Weapon Control). Working together as a bridge crew, the players warp around the sector, protecting space stations from a multitude of alien ships. Once the Artemis has expended its torpedoes and energy, the crew can replenish the ship by docking with a space station.
Some quotes from others who played the game:
"Artemis is the best game ever. No, seriously. When you combine it with alcohol, magic happens."
"Your game is a brilliant concept"
"What can I say but, holy cow! I've spent the last few years thinking about how awesome it would be to have a game like this!"
"*Jawdrop* I might be able to revitalize our LAN parties with this."
"This is Star Trek through the Rock Band filter. You are playing together as if you were on a ship."
"Awesome game. Goodbye weekend."
