Red Redemption are the independent games development team behind Steel Law Online and winners of a DTI Smart Innovation Award.
Steel Law Online launches 1st May 2004
Steel Law Online is a hybrid massively multiplayer science fiction online game - part conspiracy game, part role-playing game and part strategy game.
You assume the roles of cops, assassins, spies, corporate executives, smugglers, criminals and others on a gigantic city-sized spaceship. Thousands of years from now, in this far future adventure, conspiracy and betrayal is never far away.
Says Gobion Rowlands, Managing Director of Red Redemption and Producer of Steel Law Online:
INVOLVING GAME PLAY:
"Steel Law Online is a game about conspiracies, subterfuge, power struggles and empire building. It is a world built on power and risk, which you affect with your actions, but it is also a world where the consequences of your actions may come back to bite you."
WHAT YOU CAN DO:
"Battle ancient alien menaces, join cults, research new technology, trade, lead organisations, reactivate the massive spaceship, conquer territory, plot and carry out a wide range of player-versus-player missions, infiltrate the enemy organisations, acquire wealth, power and control."
THE PERSONAL TOUCH:
"Steel Law Online is a game about our players and their actions. Our players will be valued members of the crew on-board the Charon CityShip. To help fulfil this aim we will actively be involving the players in the decisions that affect the world as a whole. "
PLAYER DRIVEN MISSIONS:
"With its Player Driven Mission System, our players are placed very much at the centre of the action. Their actions are centre of the action. They will get to decide which paths the giant spaceship takes, which worlds it visits and ultimately its very fate."
PLAYER CONTROLLED MONSTERS:
"Feel like a break from the conspiracies? Log in as a monster for a bit of mindless entertainment as you deal out crunchy death to your shipmates."
GAMES FOR BUSY PEOPLE:
"Steel Law Online is a game by adults for adults (over 18's only). Steel Law Online is for those players who want to get involved in online games but can't afford to spend hours and hours online every day."
"Steel Law Online is built in Sun's Java and Java Webstart, which means it is multi-platform, running on Windows, OS X and Linux (and any other operating system that supports Java). "
EASE OF ACCESS:
"Steel Law Online has advanced game play integration with the website making much of the gameplay available to players from any web browser so they can play it at home, at work or wherever they happen to be!"
