My Ur-Quan Masters

Posted on Monday, February 6 @ 13:16:46 Eastern by dUKE
Star Control was one of my very favorite Genesis games, and Star Control II for the PC absolutely blew me away.

I don't usually blog about the games I happen to be playing, but I think this merits a special exception. You see, GR editor extraordinaire, Ben Silverman, recently discovered The Ur-Quan Masters, and it has held a terrifying grip on our computers for the last several days.

The Ur-Quan Masters is a direct freeware port of Star Control II. Don't let the primitive graphics fool you, underneath lies an incredible mix of strategy and action, along with one of the longest, deepest single player campaigns of all time.

So go check out one of the great moments in gaming history for yourself. It's well worth the ride, and who can beat the price? Click here to get the download.
