Subspace…How I Remember Thee…

I remember being introduced to subspace right around the time it was released…I must have been 14-15, give or take. My cutty Paul got me hooked. This was the first Massively Multiplayer Online game I’d played. I still remember soliciting for players to join my frequency and attack the little area in the lower right.

You get to pick one of 8 ships, each of which has it’s strengths and weaknesses. It is a 2D overhead view. There are different “zones”. Each zone has different gameplay and even ship attributes. I remember you used to be able to play in the amature areas for free until your character gained too many points…at which point, you would simply make a new character and continue to play for free…hehe.

Good news is, this game continues on as freeware! It’s now called continuum…the name changed, but everything else stayed the same. I generally run around in trenchwars and hangout in whatever the secondary pub is…pub 0 is for chumps 😉 hehe. Trechwars is basically team domination, centered around a small castle shaped fortress. The Terrier(ship 5) is something of the mothership in TW. Players can attach to the terrier and become a turret on it. You then disconnect from being a turret and now you have warped yourself to where the terrier is. Soooo, you try and get your terrier in the base, then everyone attaches and attacks…and a good time is had by all. Look me up, “BuSy_keniff”. I checked my usage and I’ve only logged 120ish hours since early 2000s 😛

    Best part of that screen shot.

    At least we know you weren’t playing at work!
