FreeOrion 0.3 Released

Filed under
Gaming

In 1993, Micropose and Simtex released Master of Orion.

In 1996, Microprose was back with Master of Orion II.

In 2003, Infogrames and Quickviler released Master of Orion III.

A lot of people in the MOO community felt that there was a great deal of potential untapped by MOO3 or its predecessors, and so FreeOrion was born.

A few days ago, the development team released FreeOrion v0.3, the first edition of the game to incorporate production and research. While it's still early on in the development process, v0.3 showcases enough of the design, development, and art behind the project that we felt it was time to come out of hiding.
