Laser Squad Nemesis launched

Codo Games, a developer made up of some of the creators of X-COM, releases the commercial version of its tactical e-mail game.


Codo Games, a game development studio made up of some of the creators of the Magic & Mayhem, has announced the release of its tactical e-mail game, Laser Squad Nemesis. The game uses an innovative phased-turn system inspired by the original Laser Squad game and the X-COM games. The system uses e-mail to transfer data between players. Players assume control of one of three factions--the space marines, the mechanoids, or the spawn--and can issue orders to their units and test them before submitting the orders to the game's central server, where the game turn will be processed. Players will then receive a file that shows the in-game action in a simultaneous real-time mode. The game also features a VCR-style control system that lets players replay previous turns or the entire game.

Laser Squad Nemesis is now available for a six-month subscription price of $15 from the official Codo Games Web site.
