DarkOrbit is a 2D sci-fi spaceship MMO available for browsers, developed and published by Bigpoint Games. Players begin the game by picking from one of three companies: Mars Mining Operations (MMO), Earth Industries Corporation (EIC), or Venus Resources Unlimited (VRU), all with different ideals, headquarters, and users. Players then set off into the galaxy to fight aliens and players—to collect wealth and power to benefit both the player and the company they work for. The game is strongly PvP-oriented, with no holds barred on new and old users alike in the later game zones.
