Project description

Terminal Space

Terminal Space is a text-based space trading and exploration game that was inspired by TradeWars 2002 and several other space trading, elite-type games such as Space Trader and Space Rangers.

game version 0.1.0


  1. Full screen text-based interface
  2. Single and multi-player modes (with standalone server)
  3. TradeWars 2002 concepts like sectors, planets, ports, and ships

It currently implements the TradeWars basics of a universe, sectors, and ports, but will soon be taken in new directions.
