Artemis: Join your friends on a spaceship’s bridge!
Ever wanted to play a game where you and your friends control all the consoles on a spaceship’s bridge, while engaging hostile enemies in deepest, darkest space? If you’re like me, you’ve probably designed such a game in your head and wished someone would make it. Well, someone has! Enter Artemis, a “spaceship bridge simulator”. Up to six players can take the role of Captain, Helm, Weapons, Science, Engineering, and Comms (though only two players are absolutely required) and if you grab Artemis you can sit around a LAN party, or over the internet, and destroy enemy fleets. It’s only in the early stags of development, but its worth keeping an eye on.
If you want to get a feel for the game then check out these dedicated fans and their projector (skip to about 3 minutes in to see everything in action).
