Declare your Allegiance

17 years ago Microsoft's Allegiance brought multiplayer space combat into the fold.  It was a great game for the time living a short life span at which point Microsoft closed down the games servers.  In 2004 Microsoft released the source code and volunteers brought the game back to life.

In a nice surprise Allegiance has been released on steam as a free-to-play title.  No micro-transactions in sight.  If you never experienced this game, go and check it out.  It will be worth your time, the only cost of admission.

I fondly remember playing Allegiance when it was first released.  It was one of a handful of games I stayed up through 'till the next morning to playing.
