Artemis is a multiplayer, multi-computer networked game for Windows. Artemis simulates a spaceship bridge by networking several computers together. Unlike many networked multi-player games, Artemis was designed to be played by 3-6 players together in one room but it can also be played online.
In Artemis, one computer is the main screen, while the others serve as one of the five workstations (Helm, Communication, Engineering, Science, and Weapon Control). Working together as a bridge crew, the players warp around the sector, protecting space stations from a multitude of alien ships. Once the Artemis has expended its torpedoes and energy, the crew can replenish the ship by docking with a space station.
