    Wasn't diaspora an old web-based mmo game, where you bought and sold things, while ultimately getting ganked by ships en route? You'd think that given the genre, they'd be a bit more original!

    You are correct: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Diaspora_(computer_game)


    I thought this BSG game was Beyond the Red Line with a different title, but in fact is a fork:

    Sweet.

    Downloading for Windows right now.

    Here is hoping Valve catches it and gets it on Steam!

    I saw this and was very excited to try it until I realised I could only download the source... lame!

    Can anyone with a launchpad.net account please upvote this?!

    https://bugs.launchpad.net/getdeb.net/+bug/1046551

    and comment saying you want it. We need a .deb for this game!

    A deb would be nice.

    I just found better instructions on how to compile it. Haven't tried yet.

    Looks a hell of a lot better than the Diaspora I remember, I'll have a crack at installing this later; cheers for the info!
