Inspired by movies like Fargo, The Way of the Gun, and A Simple Plan, the characters will become ordinary, ambitious hotheads. In this game you will have big dreams and poor realizations. None of it will end well… lightly put. To be honest, it will most likely end with a pile of envy, accusations, and killings.

You can lose both your life and your dignity, win painful knowledge, and if you are extra lucky, you can reach the same point you started from.

Have you ever wondered what Captain Kirk might feel aboard the bridge of Enterprise? Or Malcom Reynolds aboard Serenity? Or any other captain on a random spaceship? Now you can try it on the spaceship bridge simulator Artemis. In addition to the captain, however, the ship will need a weapons officer, a navigator, an engineer, and an intelligence and communications officer. Operating a spaceship with a team of 6 is a piece of cake and every member of the team will learn their tasks quickly. The proficiency, however, is achieved with time.
