Sigh. Still no limited edition ACDC whiskey.  :(

it's a proprietary thing developed by Ad Astra specifically for their space combat games.

No cost and no downloads - it's hosted on their own server and they'll give you the link to join it when the game starts

ASCIBI is a combination of 'ASCII', the American Standard Code for Information Interchange that was incapable of properly writing Año Nuevo State Park, and 'chibi', Japanese slang for "a specific style of caricature where characters are drawn in an exaggerated way: small and chubby, with stubby limbs and oversized heads."



At this point, I'm not even listening to myself.
