Neptune's Pride: The Complete Epic

From The RPS Archives

In case you missed it first time around in March 2010, this epic space conflict AAR is about as required-reading as this site has to offer.

Neptune's Pride is a slow-form multiplayer Strategy game. We got together with our friends from PC Gamer to play. Weeks of bloodthirst, treachery and violence on a galactic scale later, we stopped.

Phill Cameron aka Poisoned Sponge, writer
Tom Francis, PC Gamer
Kieron Gillen, Rock Paper Shotgun

Chris Pelling aka Crispy, Inventive Dingo Games
Quintin Smith, Rock Paper Shotgun
Jim Rossignol, Rock Paper Shotgun
Graham Smith, PC Gamer
