Artemis Spaceship Bridge Simulator is on Steam and you should totally give it a shot

Tom Senior at

Artemis Spaceship Bridge Simulator is a co-op game about flying a starship. Each member of the team takes a separate screen to take care of one aspect of the ship's operations - weapons, science, communications, engineering and piloting, for example. Then you head out to explore space, meet mission-givers at space stations and battle space bandits while swaying theatrically in your chair every time the ship takes a hit.

Also, whenever you put all power to the engines, you have to say "all power to the engines!" and the captain has to say "engage!" There will be no tangible affect on your performance if you don't, but it is nonetheless absolutely mandatory. Artemis is available on Steam now for £5 / $7, which is all the excuse I need to recommend it to anyone who can get a group of friends together in the same room to try it.

Even better, keeping close to friends and family through co-op gaming has never been easier thanks to the rise of local multiplayer on PC, and drop-in, drop-out online co-op. If you're out for a new co-op adventure, grab your wingman: these are our 15 favorite co-op games we’d tell anyone to play right now.

Jumping joysticks! Hardware-maker Razer and MechWarrior Online developer Piranha Games are collaborating on a peripheral called the Razer Artemis. The prototype doesn’t have a listed price or ship date, but this may be the first time a (what’s likely to be) hundreds-of-dollars device will be sold for a free-to-play game.
