Andromeda Online For Mac Released
7:58 AM | Jean-Luc Dinsdale | Comment on this story

San Diego-based game developers Aepox Games have announced that the Mac version of their space epic Andromeda Online is now available.

Andromeda Online is a strategic starship wargame that allows players to design a command crew, create their own starship or pick an existing ship from a library of crafts, then go off into battle against up to ten players at a time with an armada of up to 500 starships under their command. From their website:

The year is 2331. The galaxy is rife with feuding empires, corporations, and mercenaries. At the center of a constant conflict is the planet Andromeda. Rich in every sense of the word, Andromeda is abundant with life, energy, and fuel. In its history, thousands of races, empires, corporations, and mercenaries squads have fought over it. Though victory has been achieved many times by many different empires, success is measured not by the complete capture of the planet, but who can hold it the longest and do the most damage to their enemies.
According to the designers, the game has been created with a strong emphasis on game scalability in order to satisfy players of all interests; players can focus on micromanaging the daily events of any of their starships, or oversee their armada's advances into battle.

Andromeda Online requires Mac OS X 10.2.1 and Java 1.4.1 or higher. Players can sign up either for a feature-limited free account, or an unlimited pay account for a monthly fee of $7.95 USD. Click on the links below to download the 3.8 MB installer.
