Project Diaspora – 2D Space Trading MMORPG

Project Diaspora is a 2D Space Trading Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game (MMORPG). It is a clone of Diaspora which its creators, Altitude Productions, took offline in August 2001. However, the community has kept the game alive.

Project Diaspora is a high quality, multi-player internet based game. Graphics are attractive, and game mechanics solid. Create your character or characters, buy a ship, outfit it with weapons, missiles, and equipment. Buy, transport and sell cargo at over a dozen planets in different zones of play.

One unique feature of this game is that the server structure is designed to handle multiple servers to act as one, which means the public can download and run their own server to expand the main universe.

Features include:

  • Custom Ship setups.
  • Earn credits by:
    • Trading.
    • Bot Hunting.
    • Asteroid Mining.
    • Pirating.
    • Combat.
  • Planetary control to help the guild in making a monopoly out of the universe.
  • Create your own own servers and content to be linked in with the rest of the available game. This is because of the Hub-server and Server architecture. All game servers link to the hub server which regulates and dictates player account security.
