App description: Report to the Bridge!

Artemis is a multi-player, multi-device networked game for IOS devices. IT IS NOT A SINGLE-PLAYER GAME; IT'S FOR FRIENDS IN THE SAME ROOM TOGETHER.

Artemis simulates a spaceship bridge by networking several computing devices together. One device 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.

curious how well this might play as single player game with multiple iOS devices surrounding the player!

I saw a youtube video a while ago definitely interested to in reading people's impressions. Sounds like it'll be a riot if you can get 5 or 6 friends together.

The latest update, 1.701 was just submitted to apple. This should bring the iOS client in line with the PC version.

I'd love to give this a whirl... I have two iPads (2 and 3rd generation) and an iPhone 5. I'm thinking of using the iPhone 5 as the server and airplay to our TV for the player playing the role of the captain. The two other players can play on the iPads.

Anybody know if this set up sounds feasible?

Multiplayer with voice chat

I don't have any friends who would play this with me but if multiplayer online with voice chat could be added I think sales of this port would go through the room.

Game Impressions

Finally played this for the first time last night and had a lot of fun. We had 5 players using a mix of Windows laptops, 1 MacBook running Parallels with Windows and an iPad.

The server kept crashing at the beginning and we think it was due to a player trying to rename one of the ships. Once he stopped fiddling with that, we didn't have any trouble.

The iPad would drop its connection to the server every 10-15 minutes, sometimes a couple of times in a row. Simply hitting the reconnect button would put it right back into the game so it wasn't TOO big of a problem.

We all went into the game pretty cold without having read any of the manuals. Clearly, our first outing or two didn't go so well. Our second mission ended up with us stranded in deep space all alone with our ship gradually deteriorating. All the repair crews had died in fires around the ship caused by overloading systems. We never encountered an enemy but ourselves.

In response to one poster's comments about multiplayer with voice chat. The game is playable over the Internet. You'd have to setup some port forwarding for the server and you would have to use some other tool for voice chat, like Skype or Vent or Teamspeak, and you can do that today.

It's good, clean fun. Try it out!
