Special Guest Richard Norton brings his traveling Artemis Spaceship Bridge Simulator to Midwest GameFest! Artemis lets you and your team of players assume the roles of Captain, Helm, Science, Communication, Engineering, Weapon Control, and Fighter Pilot. Together, you operate your ship and defend the sector from invading aliens and monster threats. Richard brings a complete bridge solution with workstations, a main view screen, a joystick for the pilot, music, and more!

Artemis is a casual "walk-up and play" experience, with sessions starting periodically. No event sign-up is necessary, and Artemis won't even be included in the online event listing. Want to sign-up a session for just you and your friends? Talk to Richard at the convention to make arrangements.
