About This Game

Artemis is designed for anyone who watched Star Trek and dreamed of what it would be like to sit on the bridge of a star ship.

Artemis simulates a spaceship bridge by networking several computers together. You cannot play Artemis single-player! 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.

"It's Star Trek, Jim, but not as we know it".

Don't go in expecting the full Star Trek experience because you will be disappointed (unless you get a game master). However, if all you're looking for is joining a Starfleet ship, this game exceeds expectations and then some.

What you see is what you get: you and a group of friends fly a spaceship, each member getting their own interface.

While some interfaces may seem daunting due to the amount of information displayed (particularly engineering), each one of them is well designed and surprisingly intuitive; you'll get used to the controls rather quickly.

The gameplay is rather standard as far as Star Trek flight sim games go (mostly combat), but it does deliver this sense of belonging to a rich universe (even if the map is the size of a single solar system)

Speaking of solar systems, the world objects (or rather the lack of) are the only drawback of the game. Maybe I shouldn't expect much from game that takes up a quarter of a gig, but a couple of planets and moons wouldn't go amiss.

Overall, it's a great party game for those who love sci-fi. Just don't be caught on dreams of grandeur.

If you can assemble in one room a group of friends who like sci-fi and a little bit of LARP, this game is a unique, fun and engaging experience.
If you can't - this can still be fun, but end up in "let's play cs instead".

TO PLAY THIS GAME YOU NEED:
1 PC to act as the server. No one plays using this PC.
Up to 6 crew member devices per ship. They each need their own device (PC, iOS or Android). They each mann a station - helm, weapons, engineering, comms, science etc.
You can have 1 or more ships. Ships can be on the same team or competing.
You need at least 2 players per ship. You always need 1 server running.

CAN I PLAY ONLINE?
The game is designed to be played on the same LAN (WiFi network) and it is super easy to do so. You can, however, play with folks online but this requires port forwarding or Hamachi to set up.

Hope this cleared that up for you.

IS THE GAME FUN?
Yeah it's mint. Feels like Star Trek. Accessible too - I played with my parents and sister, who are not sci-fi fans, and they all loved it.

Perfect game for a group of nerds. Key word - group. It's a LAN only game. All devices (available on iOS and Andriod) must be connected to the same router to play. Played a few LAN matches with a bigger group and it was a blast! Grab a 24pack and your Star Trek cosplay outfit and enjoy!

Some friends and myself picked this game up for a small lan party we were going to do over New Year's. We were all a bit ambivalent about IF this game would be fun. Disparaging comments were made about the graphics. We even argued about the merits of buying from Steam or directly from the game creator.

So some time in the morning of Jan 1, we booted up the game and muddled our way through getting a server up. We didn't bother with the manual (a few of us did while we tried to figure out how to get our main screen turn on) since things appeared fairly straighforward. We settled down to our command stations, and since I didn't scramble for a specific station I was pegged as the captain. We set the game on the lowest difficulty settings and said "It's only 6 bucks. Not too much of a loss."

We finished that map in 15 minutes. We were clamouring for more, so we made the sector a bit busier, and the enemies tougher. What followed was over an hour of organized yelling, hasty planning and tense staring at our screens as we fought to save the space stations, guide errant freighters away from black holes and deal with angry space life. We all had our moments: Weapons lofted a pair of nukes and blotted out an entire fighter strike. Engineering somehow kept us intact and powered even though we barely managed to keep him ahead of our flailing. Comms got a trio of enemy ships to surrender in quick succession. Our helmsman suckered an invincible alien life form through a minefield to its death. Sensors ID'd targets and made damn certian we knew everything around us and made each beam shot count.

So our opinion after 80 minutes of fast and furious play? We all agreed on one thing. AGAIN.

Who got which seat, on the other hand...
