We are very excited to finally release the first beta version of our sci-fi PBTA game, Starscape!
Trust, like breathable air, is a precious and rare commodity in space. Starscape is a Powered by the Apocalypse game that focuses on the ebb and flow of trust and the dynamic relationships that form between a crew as they explore the stars. It is a found family game that is ideal for stories that focus on a small number of main characters who agree on a central goal, such as in Star Trek, Farscape, or Firefly.
Starscape is not designed to be a simulationist take on science fiction. There can be lots of combat, but game focuses on the relationships and interactions between the player characters, with adventure, danger, and combat utilized as narrative options to help explore the theme of trust.
We would love for you to check out the current version for free or pay what you will on itch.io. You can also join the Starscape play test discord server (link is in the beta documents) to connect with other players, ask questions, give feedback or find a group. We would also appreciate your feedback via the anonymous Google form.
