Neptune's Pride, free browser-based MoO/Spaceward Ho geared toward Diplomacy
Iron Helmet was founded by Jay Kyburz, a former Irrational Games developer who has been making video games for over 12 years. His credits include Freedom Force, Tribes, Swat and of course Bioshock.
Our first game, Neptune's Pride is in open Beta right now. Go check it out at http://np.ironhelmet.com.
Browser-based MoO, but with simplified gameplay and interesting Diplomacy options. Only downside is fairly slow fleet movement (around 20 - 28 hours of real-time for most trips when first starting). Great interface for a web game. Also, free!
I've already started a free game, and don't want to play two at once, just yet. Use this thread to meet up!
