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.
