Parsec Update
10:14 AM | Toby Allen | Comment on this story

The official Parsec web site has been updated with information about the long-promised release of this 3D space game. According to the update, they will be releasing a test version of Parsec four to six weeks from now. Parsec is a fast-paced multiplayer cross-platform space combat game, with impressive 3D-accelerated visuals and original music. Parsec.org released a self-running demo in the past, which is still available for download at MacGameFiles.


In the forthcoming test release you will be allowed to actually fly in space combat arenas and network with opponents. Here is the update:

The first public release of a playable Parsec version is coming up. It will be called
"Parsec LAN-Test" and allow up to four players to play on a LAN. It will be ready for
release in 4-6 weeks and the Linux version will also be included on the European
version of Red Hat Linux 7. The Parsec LAN-Test for Red Hat 7 contains more than 50
minutes of music by Stefan Poiss.
You might be thinking this game will cost you $40 or more, but Parsec is a totally freeware project. In development since 1996, this game still looks impressive, and the release of a test version is a clear sign the game is finally nearing completion.
