Online Games


Games I play online.  I can usually be found at one of these.

I will include links to some of the downloadable ones as  many of them are open source (so, free).

All the pictures are linked aswell so you can jump right in!.

EVE ONLINE

EVE takes place in a cluster of stars far from mankind’s original habitat, planet Earth. How far away, and whether or not that cradle of civilization still exists, is a mystery. Humans arrived through a natural wormhole and, gazing up upon an alien sky they had never seen, were completely unable to determine where this new world was located. From the New Eden solar system, where the gate of EVE once led to the old world, humans expanded in all directions at a furious pace, exploring and colonizing rapidly.

Then, unexpectedly and seemingly unprovoked, the EVE gate collapsed in an apocalyptic catastrophe of a scale never before witnessed by the human race, ruining the New Eden system in the process. Thousands of small colonies were left in complete isolation to fend for themselves, cut off from the old world. For millennia they endured, clinging to the brink of extinction, and only a handful managed to survive.

Of those that lasted, five were to rise up and become the major empires that, between them, hold the balance of power in the world of EVE. Today, they are known as the Amarr Empire, the Gallente Federation, the Caldari State, the Minmatar Republic, and the Jovian Empire. Additionally, the world is full of several small, independent factions and states.

For more than a century, the five empires have lived together in relative peace. They’ve continually strived to maintain this peace, as each faction realizes only too well the grave consequences of a massive inter-stellar war. Recent technological breakthroughs in FTL travel, and the ensuing increase in space travelers, have shaken, but not broken, the fragile peace… at least not yet.

Star Wars Combine

A free online role-playing simulation game based on the Star Wars universe.

The Star Wars Combine is a free massively multiplayer online role-playing simulation game based on the Star Wars Universe, developed by amateurs in their spare time. This sentence résumés the concept behind this project, and great care must be taken with each and every word.

The Star Wars Combine is an online game. Its purpose is to bring fun to the players by offering them a universe that they may immerse themselves in and forget, for a while, their real lives.

The Star Wars Combine is massive. Its purpose is to welcome and gather thousands of players inside the same game, creating an extremely rich gaming environment. The multitude of players generates an unlimited quantity of interactions between them.

The Star Wars Combine is about role-playing. When playing the Combine, the end-users are not only playing an avatar inside the universe; but also they are investing a part of themselves into what they would dream to be if they were living in the Star Wars universe.

The Star Wars Combine is a simulation. A simulation is the partial implementation of existing mechanisms, from physics to economy, including politics, engineering, logic, and even socialization.

The Combine is about Star Wars. The Combine is developed by Star Wars fans, for Star Wars fans. The purpose is to provide a Star Wars universe where fans may dream.

The Star Wars Combine is a free game. Free for the end-users, free for the players, but this does not mean the Combine does not have to face financial charges. There are costs associated to such a project: financial costs as well as time investments.

Finally, the Combine is developed by amateurs during their spare time. The entire project is only developed as side activity by some Star Wars fans. This particularity will have to be taken into consideration during the development phase.

The Combine is a free online massively role-playing simulation game, based in the Star Wars universe, developed by amateurs in their spare time. This sentence already generated a full page of concepts. However there is more behind the Combine. Many other concepts derive directly from what sounded like a simple sentence at first.

Vast Empire

Discover your story in the Star Wars Universe by joining the Imperial Forces and helping restore order to the Galaxy once again.

From the desk of Grand Moff Kadann
Tuesday, 7:23 p.m.

Dear Imperial Citizen,

The Emperor is dead, the Jedi have been hunted to extinction, and the Empire has broken into factions. Join The Vast Empire and take your place at the seat of power as you discover your own path in the galaxy!

Did you ever wonder what it would be like to live in the Star Wars Universe?  Or better yet, as an Imperial Officer??

We know exactly how you feel because we do that EVERY day.  Submerging ourselves into the Star Wars Universe to live a life that people only dream about.

Living through our characters in an online community centered around Star Wars in the Galactic Empire; how much better could it get?

Imagine completing your basic training and then finally getting placed into a Stormtrooper Squad or a Starfighter Squadron and then continuing your journey into the Star Wars Universe.

What a great feeling you get when you know you’re a part of a force that brings order to the Galaxy.


Learn about some of the benefits the Empire has to offer:

  • Personal Bank Account to store all your Imperial Credits.
  • Access to the Imperial Center Store for all your shopping needs!!
  • Online real-time Imperial Stock Quotes.
  • Earn and spend Imperial Credits in a real live economy system.
  • Role play with your character in story plotlines that are ALWAYS ongoing.
  • Develop a character how you want!
  • Play in multiplayer games with other Star Wars gaming enthusiasts.
  • Make friends with other people online that also have a deep love for Star Wars.
  • Play in multiplayer online gaming competitions and tournaments.
  • Chat with members online at ANY time of the day!
  • Join an organization that has been around since early 1998.
  • Excellent dental and health care plans at Impericare*.
  • Play the Imperial Lottery at your chance at winning the jackpot!
  • Learn about different Star Wars items at the Imperial Vigil Enterprises manufacturing plant.
  • See whose online and whose not at any time of the day.
  • Work with seasoned members who have been a member for years.
  • Challenge someone on a gaming ladder to see how good you really are.
  • Do everything in the Vast Empire for FREE!

Now let’s take a step further into the future when you are finally able to join the Dark Jedi Order.  I don’t know many people that wouldn’t want to have Force powers, do you?  Being able to enslave entire civilizations or destroy a planet.  Not many are able to accomplish such a feat.

Though, the path of darkness is not for everyone.  We leave the entire journey up to you.  You get to develop your character how YOU want.  Since it’s your character, who knows him/her better than you?

Only those that are truly loyal to the Empire will ever even make it past basic training.  There is a very high drop out rate due to the grueling intensive training.  That’s how involved we get in the Star Wars Universe.

The members we see get past basic training and enter the great halls of the Vast Empire are considered the best Imperials around.  We have the most feared fighting force in the Galaxy; restoring order where there is none.

Urban Dead

Urban Dead is a free-to-play browser-based multi-player game where you play the survivor or victim of a zombie outbreak in a quarantined city centre.

In death, the city stirs. Its borders still locked down after a sudden government quarantine four years ago, Malton’s trapped civilians make their way through the derelict buildings, surviving the changing seasons to rebuild their fragmented society from the rubble upwards. Military cleanup squads patrol the empty streets, stationed in the city for the long haul, while embedded scientific groups continue the experiments that brought them here.

And the dead rise up and thrive, trailing through the ruined streets of the city, milling between buildings and clawing through makeshift barricades and diversions, reclaiming the city as their own.
