Galactica Multiplayer Enters Beta
11:59 AM | Sean Smith | Comment on this story

MonkeyByte.com announced yesterday afternoon that a multiplayer version of Galactica: anno Dominari has entered beta testing.

What's more, in connection with this new version, MonkeyByte.com and Sacred Tree Software, the developers of Galactica, have launched GalacticaOnline.net.

Nicolas Murphy, president of MonkeyByte.com, said:

We have seen an awesome amount of growth in Galactica over the past year. Sales of the game have been going through the roof and we are answering this public interest with new releases, continual updates, and very soon a real sweet multiplayer version of the game that will take all GAO players to the next level.
Galactica: anno Dominari is a game of galactic colonization and warfare in which players use their superior technology and great fleets of starships to reunite the surviving factions of the once-great human empire. The game runs in Mac OS 8.5 to 9 and natively in Mac OS X. (If you're wondering what "anno Dominari" means, it's Latin for "year of Domination.")

For more information on Galactica, visit GalacticaOnline.net, where it's mentioned that the multiplayer beta test—currently invitation-only—will be opened in the future to MonkeyByte's MBD Newsletter subscribers, and the Galactica web page at MonkeyByte.com, where you can order a copy of the game on CD with enhanced artwork. Alternatively, you can download the shareware version from our sister site, MacGameFiles.
