Over dit spel

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.

QUICK DISCLAIMER: Ignore my hours of playtime as reported by Steam. I have played a few times and most of the time I am running the EXE outside of Steam. I probably have several hours of game time now.

This game is a little buggy, a little uneven, and does not feel like it's yet been fully realized. Having said that, I can still fully and wholeheartedly recommend it, but with a few caveats that I will get to later. The bottom line is: this game is so much fun! Seriously, if you are into, or were ever into Star Trek then you owe it to yourself to get it. Artemis is a simulation of what it might be like to be part of the bridge crew on a starship like the Enterprise.

Here's how it works: You run one instance of the game as a server and then each player (up to six for a full bridge crew) runs another instance and those clients connect to the server. Each player picks one or more stations to manage (captain, helm, tactical, engineering, science, and communications) and each station gets its own interface needed to perform its functions to run the ship. So the helm gets a control layout to be able to fly the ship, engineering gets controls to manage power to various systems and mitigate damage, and the tactical officer gets to fire the weapons. The captain ties it all together, making decisions and issuing orders to other crew members. The captain has his own view which is a map with some basic information, or s/he can simply use the main view screen which is provided by the server.

The developer clearly intended originally that this game would be played by people all in the same room and the simulation lends itself well to LARPing and role-playing. An ideal setup would be all six players in the same room using their own machines and whichever machine is running the server (any one of the machines could run the server and one of the clients--you DO NOT need a separate machine and/or copy of the game to play) would be connected to a big screen tv to show the main screen. Thankfully, the latest version of the game allows for playing over the internet. My gaming group uses Skype for voice chat since the game provides no native voice chat. It works fine for us.

The server is what runs the actual simulation and it allows for setting up various scenarios in the game and tweaking all sorts of parameters to increase or decrease difficulty. The are various sorts of ally and enemy ships to encounter and bases to dock with and defend. The game has modes for multiple ships with their own crews that can go head-to-head or do missions cooperatively. One server can support up to 36 players (six bridges with each having their own crews of up to 6 players).

Each role has different things to do to keep the ship running smoothly. Admittedly, some stations are more fun to play than others. Also, some stations feel very heavy on the micro-managing and others feel like there's not much to do; many people complain about the communications station for being sort of thin in this area. I actually don't mind playing Communications Officer You can hail friendly or enemy ships, monitor distress calls from friendly bases or ships being attacked, demand that enemy ships surrender, taunt enemy ships into attacking, direct friendly ships away from deadly areas of space, order friendly ships to attack, prepare bases for docking to improve refuel and rearm performance. And most importantly, you have the button to set off the red alert klaxon. As Communications Officer, you may also get side quests from friendly forces which usually take the form of, "Dock with this base to download this data, then take it to this friendly ship and then come back and dock with use to get more energy/coolant/weapons/etc."

So once again, I do recommend this game if you have at least two friends to play with. You DO NOT need six people to play this game. At the very least, you need helm, tactical, and engineering, but personally, I like playing with five or six people. Also, as I said before, the game has no native voice chat if you are going to playing over the internet. Something else to be aware of is that the game does nothing for you in terms of matchmaking or anything like that. You'll need to have each player connect to the server via IP address and you'll need to set up port forwarding on TCP 2010 to be able to have any of the clients be able to connect. One other gotcha to to be aware that when you play over the internet, you won't be able to use the IP address of the server that is reported in the game. That IP will only work when playing over a LAN. You'll need your internet-facing IP address to hand out to the players for connecting to the server.

I bought the six pack and gave the five other copies to my gaming group. I've had fun playing this game over the internet as well as all in the same room. It's a lot of fun especially if you have a madcap gang to play with like I do.

I just hope the developer continues to work on this game. It's good already but it feels like it could go a lot farther.

Even though the graphics really suck, this game has brought me more fun than any AAA title since quite a while! I play it in a group of 3, each manning 2 Stations simutaniously via 2 screens or laptop+pc. I guessthis is an insanely fun Lan-Party game but i wouldnt recommend playing it if you have at least 2 People to play with.

Awesome idea, bad implementation.
After you understand your job and have a good team, you will never ever have a hard time. Every round will be super easy and practically the same. The maps are tiny and enemies and allies have practically no AI, if they want to go somewhere and there's a mine field in the way, they will go right through it and die. Also the game only consists of the kill-all game mode. You do have quests but most of the time after 5 minutes into the game all enemies will start clumping together at your Stations and attack them, which is when you have to engage. Once all enemies are dead the round will end and you have to start over. There is literally no other objective.
So for a few hours to learn stuff, this game is really great. After that however it becomes very boring. Needs much more content.

If you ever dreamed of manning a Star Trek.. err SPACE bridge sim with a team of your buddies? Were you bitterly disaapointed that Star Trek Online - once seemed to be heading this direction before becoming a generic MMO... do you just want to have a blast at your LAN party? This game is for you... seriously it's fun, there's some great mods out there.

With even a few halfway competent friends and voice chat, this game is incredible. Blasting bad guys in space has never been this detailed or fun! Get it on mobile to increase your interactivity as well!

You're here, which means you're asking the following: "Will this make me feel like I'm living Star Trek?"

The answer is 100% yes. This is the sum total of information you need to know to purchase it - which you should.

You need at least 4 copies of this game (1 for you, 3 for friends), and peferably 6 (1 for a main screen).

You also should play this group in a lan party setting, not over the internet. You all want to be in the same room.

That said, playing this game is fun, leads to hilarity, and is strongly suggested, and isn't like most other games you've played. It needs its own genre.

Generally, most people who turn up here are likely to be aware what ASBS is. In short, as someone else already put it, it's the Star Trek game you've all been waiting for.

Now, I'm just gonna get you riled up - I'm more of a Star Wars guy. I also friggin' loved this game to bits. Now, let's go over the important stuff.

What is readily apparent is that the game is a social game. You essentially roleplay a Star Trek style crew, so it's gonna take people. With a bit of creativity you can run it remotely but the game really comes into its own over LAN. Each player gets a specific role on the bridge, and they damn well better do it well. This is pretty much the core of it.

Now, it takes some effort to enjoy it properly. It takes setting up a bridge, and it's indeed ultimate nerdery if you can set up a whole faux spaceship bridge (which some people do). The game's more than just the software, and you always need to remember. The game is also your crew. A lot of it is when you raise a glass to the finest crew in Starfleet. A lot of it is when the engineer cuts power to the engines because the drunken helm officer is zipping around to blindside enemies. The visuals are not spectacular and the sound is a little tacky.

Which is sort of part of its charm - this is not an AAA title where you're a one-man army. Oh, your ship does most of the heavy lifting, but it's the crew that counts. You need to communicate for maximum efficiency. The imperfections of presentation actually make sense, as they give a nice retro feel to everything. And it's not exactly an excuse. That feel does evoke Star Trek, which is precisely the point of the game. It's not taxing on the hardware but it's precisely the point, as it naturally requires you to use multiple devices. Unless you are tech savvy enough to cheat around that (and considering you're a huge nerd, not saying it's bad, as you're eyeing it, you actually might be), but that defeats the point, as it's a true multiplayer game.

Make your stories, make your legend. You may not be Commander Shepard, you may not be Captain Kirk or Captain Jean-Luc Picard. But in this game you'll soon be boldly coming at them with your crew by your side and your pha... beams hot.

This game is a blast! The graphics could be better but its not about the game, its about the interaction between the players. Each player mans a different station on a star ship and you proceed to fight bad guys and save the galaxy!

THE ADVENTURES OF ARTEMIS:

#1: Pilot didn't know difference between jump and warp. Picked jump drive and sent us to another dimension.
#2: Fired old pilot. Hired new one. Flew us into a nuke. Our own nuke.
#3: Comms Officer insulted the enemies as soon as we spawned.
#4: Murdered countless space whales
#5: Encountered a ZZ. Got murdered quickly.
#6: Friendly AI was more productive than we were

Jump Drive/Warp Drive
Would recommend to any group of people who can work together or any group of people who are all idiots.

We had been planning to play this game for months, but it was only until a few days ago we finally did. It took two desktops, two laptops, a tablet and someone's phone, but we did it.

All that hardware for such a tiny little game! But god damn it, it was worth it. We were yelling orders and updates back and forth the entire time. "Battleship approaching!" "EMP missiles, ready!" "No response to offer of surrender!" "Get us up there, no, up there... NO, by the big purpley are on the top left. No, the PURPLE AREA! (walks over to screen) THAT. PURPLE. AREA. THERE."

Recommended, but not in a building with thin walls.

The "Strak Trek universe", even if it completely inspired the game, is really not omnipresent, and i think it's important to say that because it could be (and i'm sure it is) a barrier for gamers who don't know the show ! =/
You can have a lot of fun, playing with your friends, not knowing Mr. Spock for example. Just learn how to do your job in the task you choose on the ship, and it will be good !

Otherwise, i think that this game is unfortunatelly not as known as it deserves. I'm french, i write this comment as well as i can, maybe with some mistakes, but i'm sure of one thing : we don't know enough this game in France, and we are WRONG. Maybe it's because there is no localization of the game, no translation at all, no access for those who don't know english... Too bad! =/

In french now :
On a vraiment besoin d'une traduction pour ce jeu. Certes, on peut se débrouiller avec un anglais moyen, mais on aurait encore plus de fun à jouer si toutes les facettes ne nous étaient pas dissimulés sous des termes le plus souvent (trop) techniques ! Par ailleurs, comme dit dans le paragraphe en anglais, on ne connaît pas assez ce jeu en France, et il ne serait que bénéfique d'avoir (de créer si c'est pas déjà fait) une communauté Artemis-SBS France solide !

À bon entendeur, salut ! ;)

Assign the role of Captain to the most careless person you can and let the shenanigans begin!

The graphics are just about on par with Classic Star Trek. But you won't mind because you'll be too busy firing torpedoes at space stations, arguing about how fast you're going, and reassigning power to different parts of the ship to see what happens!

Pros:
-Epic LAN fun
-Your crew is literally what makes the game work
-A fine way to find excuses to shout at your friends

Cons:
-Needs some more missions and gameplay rules to keep you engaged

Awesome game. Need some very nerdy friends to play with, but if everything is set, it really gives the feeling of commanding a spaceship. You cannot belive the dificulty of giving orders to everything instead of just doing all the things by yourself or letting an AI to do it for you. Awesome. Must have.

This game is a really fun party game, but you'll need to have Hamachi downloaded on all the computers. Also, me and my friends had to reinstall Hamachi each time we wanted to play. It might have been the stranger internet network we we're all using falt. Hamachi also is limited to 5 people, unless you get a subscription version of Hamachi. It's really fun, but it requires a lot of tech knowledge and patience to get it to work right. It will take hours to get your first game set up correctly

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...
