Artemis Spaceship Bridge Simulator lets you turn your living room into the bridge of a spaceship. You and your friends assume the jobs of Captain, Helm, Science, Communication, Engineering, and Weapon Control (and now Fighters!). Together you operate your ship and defend the sector from evil aliens.
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. 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.
Artemis is also a favorite activity at sci-fi conventions and maker spaces around the world. If you want to try Artemis before you buy it, find a fan convention near you; chances are they’ll have an Artemis game running!
Artemis was originally released in 2010, and has been (and continues to be) upgraded and supported since then.
