Meet people from all over the world...then kill them. And it's free!
Ever imagine what it'd be like to play Asteroids against your friends? Want to savor the satisfaction of blasting people out of space in some addictive side-scrolling 2D spaceship shooter action?
Slap on some snazzy graphics, guns, bombs & big explosions and the beautiful revelry of flying past your enemy's debris as they cuss at you, and you have Continuum, the longest running massively multiplayer spaceship shooter game running today.
Continuum began as Sniper in 1995 and proceeded through 2 years of beta development as SubSpace and launched commercially on November 30, 1997. So in preparation of the glorious 10th year anniversary in 2007-2008, we're looking for some fresh blood to revitalize the population and to bring some new skills to battle against a decade of veteran spaceship mastery.
Were you the reigning soda-shop champion in Asteroids? Sick of tending to your Nintendogs? Prepared to go up against 10-year veterans and show them what perfecting headshots in Counterstrike has done for your aim?
Swing by Continuum and see how crappy you really are. Ooooh, pwned! Angry now? Download the game and prove us wrong!
Continuum is the offshoot of MMO pioneering shooter, SubSpace, published in 1997 by Virgin Interactive Entertainment and abandoned soon thereafter. Because the game consumed so many lives, we couldn't let it die. So a few passionate pilots rebuilt the client, cleaned up the servers, and established a user-driven renaissance for one of the greatest games ever to grace the PC. Their efforts resulted in the game now known as Continuum.
Continuum began with a few zones, referred to as SVS zones, where ship settings kept true to their SubSpace origins. These classic zones retain the oldest populations and most skilled players, along with extremely competitive and balanced league play and some of the craziest personalities out there.
Since re-launching as Continuum, there's been significant growth in custom zones, where the ships' looks and settings often vary widely. The action is usually more fast-paced and casual.
If you're looking to develop your own game, Continuum provides server, developer, and game designer tools so you can customize Continuum into any kind of side-scrolling 2D shooter action game you can imagine!
Continuum has been around since 1995, so there's obviously much more to this amazing game than we can place on this page. We've got intense leagues, a great community, awesome squads, and some of the most addicting gameplay you'll find online. It's lasted this long for a reason.
