STAR CONQUEST LANDS ON GAMERANGER
Perth, Western Australia -- April 24, 2001 -- Scott Kevill today announced the addition of a new game title to GameRanger, the Macintosh multiplayer online gaming service. In addition to the 66 previous titles, gamers can now play Star Conquest.
Star Conquest is a turn-based strategic wargame played as a single player, multi-player or network game. Up to ten players can play in a game, accompanied by up to ten computer controlled players. Your objective is to guide your species in its expansion to all corners of the known Universe.
You start with two or more populated Planets and a small number of Star Ships. Using these Star Ships you have to explore and colonise other Star Systems. Soon you will encounter other species. Will you choose to conquer all, or perhaps fight as part of an alliance? Each year you can decide what strategy to follow, moving Star Ships or Fleets to attack or defend, colonising Planets and exploring Star Systems. Once every player has issued his or her commands, the year ends and the results are calculated. The game continues until all players are eliminated and only a single player or alliance remains.
GameRanger, the Macintosh multiplayer online gaming service, was first introduced for public beta testing in July 1999 with support for 11 game titles, and had already received many rave reviews, including an award of "Best Internet Gaming Achievement" by Macworld Magazine in their 1999 Hall of Fame. GameRanger now has over 48,000 members and support for over 60 popular game titles.
GameRanger is available as a free download, at <http://www.GameRanger.com>.
