Episode 20: Artemis Spaceship Bridge Simulator
The Nerds have exposed their true nerdiness with this episode, as they describe the Artemis Spaceship Bridge Simulator game. What is Artemis you ask?
Artemis is a multiplayer, multi-computer networked game for Windows computers. 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, 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. Artemis is a software game for Windows XP, Windows Vista, and Windows 7.
