I originally posted this in the Coffee House, but think it should appear here really, since the game works in OWB!

This is a brand new, space-based MMORPG. It only came out of beta at 12:00 today (BST). It currently has a browser interface which is extremely slick. An iPhone game client has been submitted to Apple for their approval. I've been playing today, and it feels like a cross between a simplified version of Eve Online and Escape Velocity. So far, I love it.


Here's a screenshot of it running in OWB under AROS.

The only problem I've found so far in OWB is that whenever a sound is played (which happens often) OWB asks you what to do with the file. I don't know if there's any way to disable sound in the game, or whether OWB can be forced to always carry out the same action.
Code: [Select]
10  IT\'S THE FINAL COUNTDOWN
20  FOR C = 1 TO 2
30     DA-NA-NAAAA-NAAAA DA-NA-NA-NA-NAAAA
40     DA-NA-NAAAA-NAAAA DA-NA-NA-NA-NA-NA-NAAAAA
50  NEXT C
60  NA-NA-NAAAA
70  NA-NA NA-NA-NA-NA-NAAAA NAAA-NAAAAAAAAAAA
80  GOTO 10

Then play in the browser ;) It works in Safari (desktop, not mobile). It's a fantastic game, and the devs are always around on the forums and in-game chat taking questions, bug reports and suggestions. I'm addicted already, and the iPhone version is going to destroy my life :nervous:

I don't have much choice at the moment... The iPhone browser is better than my A1200 and I used that for Internet for 4 years!
