Digging Caprica but still wanting more Battlestar Galactica-related goodness in your life? Then get ready to not just watch BSG but live it—because Norwegian game developer Artplant is building Battlestar Galactica Online for massively multiplayer online gaming publisher Bigpoint.

Here's how the company describes the game:

Players will be able to choose to play as cylons or humans in a constant struggle to control the universe or just survive its perils. A blend of tactical space combat, exploration, and mission-based gameplay will provide a diverse experience. The dramatic missions will define the game's overall storyline, enabling the player to delve into mysteries of the Battlestar universe. Battlestar Galactica Online will create a new standard for web games, with beautiful 3d graphics and innovative game mechanics bringing a new level of game play to browser based MMOG. Assets from the television production will be integrated into the game to deliver an even more authentic experience.
