8:15 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

Yexi - The Interstellar Adventure, a space simulator will heavy influences from the world of Star Trek, has been released for the Mac. Yexi uses Macromedia's Shockwave technology, so for the moment it's unable to run natively under OS X, but it should work in classic mode or OS 8.6 through 9.x. The game features multiplayer matches with over four players possible, as well as a singleplayer mode. Here's the press release with more information on gameplay and requirements:

As a player, you can do some obvious tasks, as docking on starbases to refit your vessel and replenish main resources, and other not so obvious, such as orbiting sidereal objects, launching probes to gather the position of a cloaked vessel or being caught in the gravity well of a wormhole and wind up being sling-shot hundreds of light-years from home.

One of the unique features of this game is the use of the transporter to beam down away teams to seize planets, to rescue escape pods (yes, your crew abandons ship depending on the level of the life support system), and to transfer torpedoes, fuel, and cargo between vessels, planets, and starbases.

Issue orders to your crew, request reports, or take direct control of the bridge stations. In the multi-player mode, team up with your friends to save the fate of the galaxy in six unique scenarios.

Set course to explore uncharted territory and engage in dramatic combat action with all sort of ships possessing different firepower and maneuverability. You will be required decisive judgement and skillful maneuvering to accomplish your mission.

Yexi is available for download and in CD-ROM format. Both versions are identical, but the download version is being offered by a reduced introductory price of $14.99 until the official release date. The download size is 15.5 Mb and should take less than one hour to transfer over a 56k connection.

The minimum system requirements are: iMac G3 333 MHz, 64MB RAM, MacOS 8.6, and Quicktime 3. Internet connection and 56.6 modem required for multiplayer mode and license registration. G4 with DSL Internet connection recommended as host machine for multiplayer games with more than 4 players.

For more information or to order a CD or download version of the game, check out the official Yexi web site.
