In 1995 a group of developers started a client by the name of 'Sniper' to see how well dial up
connections worked on a online multiplayer game. In 1997 after successfully beta testing 'Sniper'
Virgin Interactive Entertainment (VIE) released a game called 'SubSpace' on the retail market.
SubSpace was very vulnerable to cracks, cheats and did not work well with operating systems.
Many users did not want to pay to play, so a crack for the game was released called "Twister".
After years of playing a cracked game, PriitK released Continuum, which was a replica of SubSpace
and was 100% free. SubSpace is now dead, and players still carry on its legend. Now in 2015, 18 years
after, SubSpace has got a new life and got released on Steam!

Continuum began with a few zones, referred to as SVS (Standard VIE Settings) zones, where ship settings
kept true to their SubSpace origins. These classic zones retain the oldest populations and most skilled
players, along with extremely competitive and balanced league play and some of the craziest personalities
Since re-launching as Continuum, there been significant growth in custom zones, where the ship look
and settings vary widely. The action is usually more fast-paced and casual.
If you're looking to develop your own game, Continuum provides server, developer, and game designer
tools so you can customize Continuum into any kind of top-down 2D shooter action game you can imagine.
Continuum has been around since 1995, so there's obviously much more to this amazing game than we can place
on this page. We've got intense leagues, a great community, awesome squads, and some of the most addicting
gameplay you'll find online. It's lasted this long for a reason.
