Anybody here playing the browser game Neptune's Pride? I stumbled across this game when Rock Paper Shotgun launched a series of funny AARs (which you can read here
). I gave it a try but wasn't expecting much. I was wrong! It really is a lot of fun. Basically, it is like Diplomacy
in space, with a bit of the 1990's cult favorite Stars! thrown in.

I also just wrote a quick review here
, as well as doing an interview with the dev here
(yes, I really like this game
). While it doesn't have any of the chrome of, say, Sins of a Solar Empire or Sword of the Stars, what it does have is a lot of old-school fun. And it's free (for a basic game)! What more could you want?
