browser-based massively multiplayer online games (MMOGs) - today released the
first official gameplay trailer for the upcoming tactical space combat MMOG
Battlestar Galactica Online (battlestar-galactica.bigpoint.com/), one
of the most ambitious browser-games ever developed. The trailer (

stunning graphics and fast-paced action, and features Bear McCreary's
original score from the series.
Featuring never-before-seen in-game footage of Battlestar Galactica,
Cylon Basestars, Raiders, Vipers, and fleet formations, the gameplay trailer
highlights space combat. Built with the Unity development platform,
