Text-Based games can seem rather repetitive. Kill an ogre, use a spell, and fight to get to the top. While these games are good fun, luckily gamers have other options.
Federation 2 is one of those other options. Rather than fight beast, players advance ranks through economics, and a variety of different task. Players start off flying amongst planets hauling cargo for a Inter-Galactic Corporation, later promoting to courier work. They then get sent to the Futures Market, followed by starting founding their own company and managing a series of factories. Later on, players will be able to advance to the point where they can own, and custom design, their own planet.
Federation 2 is an original Space-themed trading game. This game does not borrow itís theme from a movie or book. Federation II is a place where you can create your destiny, economic and social. Being a space themed game you would assume that many players would choose to play a Star Wars or Star Trek themed character. While welcome, that isnít always the case. Over the history of Federation many different types of characters have played the game, from Vampires to various Felines, and also a troop Space Pirates. Be whoever you want to be, it just adds to the richness of this community.
When youíre tired of working up the ranks, visit one of the many bars and socialize with new friends, or explore space and the beautiful planets with stories and puzzles worth figuring out. Game Staff also offer nightly events like Fed Word Scramble, Fedpardy, and Guess My Secret. Later down the line when Space Combat is programmed into the game, nightly fighting events will likely take place. (This game is economic based, fighting is never required for promotion, itís just for fun.)
While this game is a text-based game, the designer has built and offers a graphical front-end. Players can now submit aviators, have a visual map, and save their score and a player list in sidebars. The front-end is not required to enjoy or participate in the game however, just an added benefit making the game more friendly to players not use to Text-Based games.
Best part about Federation II? Itís a professional quality game run by a professional company and the cost is NOTHING. You heard me, NOTHING, Federation II is free! Iíve been playing for years, and will continue to, I hope you join us.
