Artemis Simulator Logo

Be the crew, report to the bridge!  Artemis is a Spaceship Bridge Simulator where players assume the jobs of Captain, Helm, Science, Communication, Engineering, and Weapon Control.  Together you operate your ship and defend the sector from evil aliens.  Artemis simulates spaceship bridges by networking several computers together. One screen acts as the “main screen” of a bridge, while others serve as stations for the normal jobs a bridge crew might do. Artemis is a social game where several players work together on each bridge, and one player plays the Captain, who doesn’t have a station but tells everyone else what to do.  Multiple bridges can participate together in cooperative multi-ship missions. Each simulation runs 20-40 minutes. Players can drop in any time.

Norwescon will have Artemis bridges running at the following times and locations over the convention weekend:
