Atlantis 2.0 Play Test

Atlantis is an open-ended computer moderated play-by-email fantasy game for any number of players. Players may attempt to carve out huge empires, become master magicians, intrepid explorers, rich traders or any other career that comes to mind. There is no declared winner of the game; players set their own objectives, and one can join at any time.

Atlantis 2.0

The Atlantis 2.0 Play Test is now closed. It ran from January 15, 1995 to April 4, 1997, for a total of 100 turns. There were over 500 players at one point, with around 300 for much of the game. Thanks to all who made the Play Test a great success, and aided with the further development of Atlantis!

Hi folks,

It is with some regret (and some relief too, I must admit), that I
must announce that Atlantis 2.0 will end on turn 100. I hope that
this gives you enough time to settle any last little differences
that you still might have with other factions.

I have certainly enjoyed running the game, and meeting (if you
can call email meeting) the many different people who played. I
hope you have all had as much fun with Atlantis 2.0 as I have.
