Text-based MMOs have come a long, long way since their olden days with monochrome monitors and fizzling baud modems. Newer text-based titles might surprise you with their presentation, such as the clean and attractive look of Gemini Station.
Gemini Station is a browser-based MUD that can be accessed via computer or mobile device. It puts the player in the role of a space jockey who is trying to make his or her way around the cosmos in a variety of ways. It’s a bit like the classic Privateer, with real-time travel between planets and a complex economy.
“Centered around trade, piracy, and intrigue, Gemini Station allows you to customize and equip your ship by acquiring specialized mods that allow you to fine-tune your play style,” the team explained. “As your ship gets more powerful, you’ll be able to complete more difficult missions, transport more cargo, hack more secure systems, and even turn on other players in attempt to steal their cargo.”
