Vendetta Online is a twitch-based, science fiction massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG) developed by Guild Software for the Microsoft Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux operating systems. It uses the WGAF graphics engine, which was written in-house. Vendetta Online shipped as a commercial MMORPG on November 1, 2004, and currently costs US$9.99 a month (when bought in one-month increments). It is updated regularly (usually every other week) with new content and bugfixes.
In Vendetta Online, there are three playable nations and many minor NPC factions. The nations are the Itani Nation, the Serco Dominion and the Union of Independent Territories (usually referred to as the UIT). The Itani are reputed for their science and maneuverable ships, the Serco for their warrior nature and armored ships, and the UIT for their trading abilities and neutrality.
Vendetta Online has a long backstory available, which details the fate of humanity from 2140 to 4432. It was written by the lead game developer, John Bergman.
