The love of sci-fi TV series Battlestar Galactica is still beating strong despite having ended a while back now. In fact it's been BigPoint's "best start" ever.

BigPoint CCO Nils-Holger Henning believes it's going to pull in EUR 1 million each month. The free-to-play MMO lets you play as human or crafty cylon.

"The feedback we've had, the activity inside of the game - from the user behaviour - shows us that we're building one of the next blockbusters in Bigpoint's portfolio," declared BigPoint CCO Henning. "We think it has a bigger potential than every other game in our portfolio, taken individually." The MMO is played through your Internet browser.

"Well, to talk directly, it's the best start we've ever had with a game in Bigpoint's history - and not because we've been putting so much marketing behind it, but because the community has been driving it," he continued.

"They've been so interested in the brand and what's going to happen with the game." Have you been sucked into the dramatic struggle between man and machine yet? For more about the free-to-play space opera see the Battlestar Galactica Online website.

I've put in a dozen hours or more on this title already, and though with bare-bones non-combat interactions the game is immersive, true to the franchise with regard to units and scenarios and all-round fun. Highly recommended for any "BSG" or "Freespace" fan.
