Vendetta Online

Vendetta Online is a multi-platform 3D space-combat MMO for Windows, Mac, Linux/32 and Linux/64. The game permits players to interact in a vast online galaxy; fighting, trading, and mining their way to success. A "twitch" type real-time combat model makes true player skill the deciding factor instead of character advancement. Massive capital-ship battles shake the foundations of the major nations at war, while others struggle to push back the encroachment of the AI "Hives". A no-strings free trial is available.

          Release Notes: Conquerable station sectors Bractus M-14, Latos I-8, and Pelatus C-12 are now running experimental code to test a solution to weapon hits sometimes not registering.

            Astounding Gameplay
            I have the Xperia Play and the ability to wake up and log in on your gaming rig, switch to mobile over lunch break and pick up right where you left off, and return to the same avatar after dinner is amazing. This game did more things right than William Gibson when he wrote Neuromancer. Your laptop is not a computer, it is a portal, and your mobile phone is a familiar. In the words of a surfer; ride this wave.
