Best.  Game.  EVER:  Star Control II

I am in sweet monkey nirvana over this one.  For older game nerds, Star Control II should rank up there with Maniac Mansion, Out of This World, and Monkey Island as one of the best damn videogames ever made. 

Some kind souls understood our aching need and made a cross-platform port of SCII for the ‘puter!  AWE-Frickin’-SOME!

Oh, sweet nothing.  Goodbye, work!  Hello Star Control 2!

    Sounds like someone is a fan of the old adventure genre. I’m playing through Grim Fandango at the moment.

  • .alphamonkey.

    Holy crap..there’s a port for that?

    I have the soundtrack playing right now.

    That’s such a great game.  It stays strong right through the end too.  The only problem I have with LucasArts games is that you can’t die, so it’s too easy to just poke around until you find the one path to victory.  At least it won’t let you get to a point where you can’t win, like the old Sierra games.

    Port? No no. Just playing the actual cd game.

  • .alphamonkey.

    that takes me back.  I lost that CD waaay back.  I wonder if you can still buy it…

  • Shadow Stalker

    I have it.  I can transfer all my existing copies and licenses to you.

  • SonSon2

    …you could always download it for free off a bit torrent….

    Not that you should do that because it’s ILLEGAL.

    I mean… it’s not like I did that or anything…

  • fullmetal

    This game was opensources, music remixed and improving in many ways.

    Just for Google outsiders finding this 😉

    But is there still a time limit? Did anyone ever make an MMORPG out of this?
