Legacy Systems is looking for beta testers for their new game, Andromeda Online. Andromeda Online is a multiplayer space-based strategy game that is Mac, Windows, and Linux compatible. From Legacy Systems:
Legacy Games is proud to announce that we are now taking signups for the beta test of Andromeda Online .
Andromeda Online is a strategic starship wargame (multiplatform for the Mac, Windows and Linux). Players design a command crew, pick a stock starship or design their own, and go into battle! And while one-on-one battles are a blast, thatis only the beginning! Why play with just one ship when you can command of fleet?! Command an armada of up to 500 scouts, fighters, cruisers, battleships, even space stations! Break them off into fleets and sub-fleets as you scour the galaxy looking for your opponents ships.
Andromeda Online offers unparalleled scalability! Play just one ship against your opponents, or use of fleet! A unique damage based point system ensures that one can use an infinite number of strategies, and still win. Hide in asteroid fields, nebulae were even a deadly plasma storm! Play games with as many as 10 players at a time, make teams and alliances, even play with or against the computer! Design your own crew and ships, offering a micromanagement design for players who are interested, and trade your ship designs online! Or, focus purely on the battle, learn to draw your opponents into hazardous areas, send in micro cloaked fighters, so small and invisible they are nearly impossible to hit! How will you grow your empire? The choice is up to you...
Legacy Games says that the beta test will begin on April 29th, and that they are currently accepting players. You can get more information on the game at the Andromeda Online Web site.
