Space Nerds In Space is an open source (GPLv2) cooperative multiplayer networked starship simulator for linux (and possibly Mac OSX too.) The idea is you get several of your friends together with their computers in a room with a projector. One computer runs the central server simulation of the game's universe. Each player's computer acts as a station on a simulated starship. For example, there are stations for Navigation, Weapons, Engineering, Communications, Damage Control, and the "Main View", an out-the-window 3d rendering. Multiple starships each with their own team may connect to the server for bridge-vs-bridge combat, or for cooperative play. Additionally, a game master may inject and control various NPC ships into the game to entertain the players, and scenarios may be constructed with a Lua based scripting API.
