Karlsruhe, Germany (October 4, 2022) — The time has come, Gameforge — games publisher and developer of popular titles such as AION, NosTale, Metin2, Trigon: Space Story, and Swords of Legends Online — is pleased to announce that their long-running space strategy MMO, OGame, is now available on iOS and Android devices. OGame mobile, along with the recently released Lifeforms expansion, celebrates the 20th anniversary of Gameforge’s very first game, initially launched on October 3, 2002.

“Players have been supporting OGame for 20 years now, and we felt that we had to reward that dedication in a big way,” said Lead Product Manager, Martin Liedtke. “OGame on mobile devices and the recently released Lifeforms expansion are our gift to the game’s passionate community, and we hope they enjoy it!”

OGame for mobile devices contains everything long-time fans have enjoyed over the last two decades, including the massive Lifeforms expansion. Players can begin anew or log in with their existing accounts to continue their conquest of the cosmos on the go!

Key features of the Lifeforms expansion include:

  • 4 Unique Lifeforms: Through the new update, players have access to four unique species. Build civilizations consisting of the jack-of-all-trades Humans, the resourceful Rock’tal, the robotic and emotionless Mechas, and the explorative Kaelesh.
  • 48 New Buildings—12 per Lifeform: Players start with the ability to build a small selection of buildings, but as new species are found and researched, more will become available.72 New Species Technologies—18 per Lifeform: As players progress through the new content, they unlock the lifeform-specific tech trees, which can be filled out to further combat, exploration, production abilities, and more, and influenced to branch in any number of ways based on the different species they discover.
  • Two New Resources: The new resources—lifeforms and food—must be balanced carefully. Players must grow lifeforms to unlock species-specific technologies on their planet, but to allow the lifeforms on their planets to thrive, players need to manage food production. If lifeforms consume too much food, too quickly, they will eventually starve and begin to die out. Unlike food, lifeforms cannot be transported or stolen but can be destroyed when a planet is successfully attacked.

Created by Gameforge CEO Alexander Rösner and originally released on October 3rd, 2002, OGame is one of the space-themed MMO genre’s longest-running games that, to date, has over 100 million registered players worldwide. Everything starts with the foundation of a small colony on an uninhabited planet. Harnessing the resources of this new home, players research new technologies and construct a powerful fleet to carry their authority out into the stars. Players can expand their galactic empires by colonizing planets, forging tactical alliances, or by taking on other players. Launch unprecedented expeditions of conquest, and subjugate galaxy after galaxy, on a quest to become the most powerful ruler in the universe!

OGame is available for Windows PC via the Gameforge Client, Android mobile devices via Google Play, and iOS mobile devices via the Apple Store. The game is available in 26 languages.

About OGame

OGame is a browser-based and completely free-to-play strategy game set in a science-fiction universe. Players create an economic and military infrastructure with the ambition of facilitating the newest technological advancements. Through the construction of metal, crystal and deuterium, the player's empire grows and thrives: other players can be attacked and their resources can be looted from the debris of their planet. Players can join together in an alliance to work as a team against aggressive planets, to share resources or in times of war, share fleets with one another. Having been in existence since 2002, OGame is celebrating its 16th anniversary this year and in doing so, can be counted as a veteran amongst browser games.
