OGame is a real-time, strategic space simulation. It allows the competition between several thousand players simultaneously.
Each player takes the role of an intergalactic emperor, trying to strengthen his influence throughout the galaxies. Being a strategic game, OGame challenges the brains, demanding different tactics, manoeuvres and fights.
In order to gain power, your personal strategy must include battles, contracts and now and then you need to join or found an alliance. This is not enough though, you need to build an infrastructure on your planets: found factories, produce resources and manage your workers. This is why OGame represents a mixture of both, war-simulation and economy-simulation, and again this makes it far more interesting.
Next to the fascinating strategy, the strong community and the need for in game communication, gives OGame its soul: conversation between players, whether friend or foe, is essential. You become part of a strong gaming community which affects your tactics in the game, opens new horizons as well as it gives you the opportunity to meet people through in game messaging or alliances, in which you can act as a diplomatic delegate.
OGame (ogame.org) is available in 15 languages, covering a total of more than 30 countries. Its two million-strong community develops faster each day: it took only 8 month to double the active user figures from one to two million gamers.
OGame aims a simple plan: intelligent entertainment for young and old with easy accessibility and completely free of charge. Its success opens frontiers for new language versions which will be released shortly.
