Persistant ~ Realtime ~ Multiplayer
Based on the gaming style first introduced in Fiefdom (Persistant, Realtime Multiplayer) - All your info is kept "live", so whenever you return to play again you'll be
returning to where you left off. It also means that other people are also playing at the same time, and you may interact with them in "real time", and vice
versa. If they decide to attack you, you'll see it as it's happening.
The object of the game is galactic trading. The galaxy is filled with planets that either have things to sell or they want to buy. Your job,
will be to visit those planets, buying items from planets selling them, then re-selling them to planets wanting to buy them, making your profit
along the way. Pick up some Excavators, find a few roaming asteroids, and you can harvest stuff to sell to the planets too!
How much you can carry onboard your ship is limited by your number of "Cargo Holds"; you can buy more of these at any Space Station. Once your ship becomes
full, you'll need a larger ship to carry more cargo (Also at the Space Station).
If you were in a perfect world, that's all there would be to it! However, bear in mind that every other player also wants to reign supreme, and won't hesitate
turning your ship into "spare parts" in order to do so. You should seriously consider investing in a decent amount of firepower, if nothing else than for
simple self defense.
To get started, just click the Let's Play button. If you're signed in to your account, it will sign you into the game; if not, you'll be asked for your username
& password. Once signed in, the first step is to enter the name of the Galaxy you want to play in!
