Artemis Spaceship Bridge Simulator Updated

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

May 1st, 2012 -- Thom Robertson ( http://artemis.eochu.com/) released a new version (v.1.65) of the PC game, Artemis Spaceship Bridge Simulator.

Changes and new features of this update include:

  • Upgraded the 3D graphics engine.
  • Major revisions to existing enemy races and ships.
  • New fighters, carriers and drones.
  • Space Whales.
  • New self-destruct sequence.
  • More customization options and a host of small fixes.
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 but it can also be played online.

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.

"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!"
