Is this the oldest space MMO, or maybe just the oldest one still running?

Oldest I am aware of.


Remember many many years ago playing Jumpgate and people talking about upcoming games that were still in development like "EnB" and "EvE" on the public channels. hehe

You don't think there's anything amiss? I'm sat here wearing a red and white gingham dress, and army boots, you think that's un-amiss?

Used to be a great game. I was playing it around 2001ish.... no idea anymore. I tried it not too long ago, and alot had changed from what I could tell, but I didn't stick around long.

I didn't even know Jumpgate was still around. I may go check it out again, though it is inevitable that I will suck at it. Me + flight games = no.

Holy crap!  I went to their site out of nostalgia the other day and saw that NetDevil is patching this game again.  I may re-up.

Maybe Mankind is even older.

Kinda does the same as EvE just that you can control 100's of ships at a time.

And it's stil alive i think.

Do we live to watch anime?

I really loved that game. Only made it to ship level 26 though.  Still had a blast
