Battlecruiser 3000AD (also known as [BC3K] in Usenet) is one of the longest-developed games in computer game history. It was under development for seven years, and was still extremely bug ridden when eventually released.
Development of version 2.0 of the game continued throughout 1998, and Interplay announced that it would publish an improved version (dubbed Battlecruiser 3000AD v2.0) through its Value Product Division. Unlike the previous product, only a Windows version was supported.
3D acceleration is supported only through 3dfx hardware.
The game now contains 13 alien races, 25 castes. Game map contains 25 star systems with 75 planets and 145 moons in total.
