Some of you may have seen articles fly around the net a few months back, about a Google engineer who built his house with LAN parties in mind. Exhibit A
As it happens, this Google engineer is a friend of mine (and several current & former Cryptic employees), and we've been to his house for a fair number of LAN parties since he completed the house last year.
The latest LAN party announcement went out this week, with a bit of a twist. This time, my friend has come across something called "Artemis Starship Bridge Simulator" Exhibit B
The house is set up with 6 computers in two rooms, so it seems like it's the perfect set up for this game. Or this game is the perfect game for this house, or something.
Have any of you messed with this before? I had never heard of it before the party announcement, but am looking forward to trying it out. Anyone have any advice? Previous experiences? Anything to give me leg up on the other room!
Artemis is a multiplayer, multi-computer networked game for Windows computers. Being designed by an indie developer.
Artemis simulates a spaceship bridge by networking several computers together. One computer runs the simulation and the "main screen", while the others serve as workstations for the normal jobs a bridge officer might do, like Helm, Communication, Engineering, and Weapon Control.
Artemis is a social game where several players are together in one room ("bridge") , and while they all work together, one player plays the Captain, a person who sits in the middle, doesn't have a workstation, and tells everyone what to do.
Err should you really be advertising for the game in an STO forum haha...one thing to talk about it and suggest one to give it a try, but this seems more along the lines of "Hey everyone, download this"
WOW! The commercial looks like crap, epic fail on the stellar level graphics alone just for a short cinematic could/should have been better for a teaser trailer all it did was to make me not want to never revisit the website and thread Fail fail fail people donít even bother past this point.
Can i please have that time you made me waste back
