Playnet Announces On-Line Multiplayer Traveller

11 May 2000

CRS [Cornered Rat Software, a division of Playnet] also acquired the exclusive license to develop and publish the online massively multi-player game version for the book-based Sci-Fi role-playing game known worldwide as Traveller. The Traveller rule set, which was originally created by Marc Miller in the late 1970s, has been played worldwide by millions of avid fans for more than two decades.

With these projects, CRS is taking the development of massively multiplayer RPG's to a higher level with their multiple-platform design and implementation of an assortment of never-before-seen features for both the Traveller universe and the huge fantasy world within Kharduum. Both titles will employ the state of the art Unity 3D Engine developed by Cornered Rat Software which allows simultaneous game play in three separate geophysical dimensions - land, sea and air.
