Heya, folks! Proff here.
This is the first game I’m working on, and I thought I’d create a WIP thread to gauge interest, snare bugs and collect suggestions from everyone. Currently, I only have Character Creation finished and am currently diving into Chapter 1. Sorry for the lack of content, but I wanted to see what kind of interest a game like this would produce. I’m looking for any kind of feedback - positive, negative, it doesn’t matter. If you have any opinions about the way it flows or if it needs any certain elements, be sure to reply here and let me know.
The game is set in the 25th century. You play the captain of a space vessel and your goal is to make enough money to live and maybe even retire one day. It’s not an easy life, though. Pirates are a constant concern, no matter where you’re going or where you’re coming from. Out in space, as you get farther and farther away from civilization, chaos and disorder tend to get their way. Aside from pirates, you also have to worry about malfunctions in your ship or running out fuel so that you’re not left stranded and doomed to float through the cosmos in a fancy coffin. Making money and surviving may be your only two goals, but there are many ways to go about doing it. You could transport passengers, carry cargo, serve as an escort and protector, smuggle illegal contraband or take out known pirate bases on obscure moons. There’s plenty to keep you busy…
Okay, so it’s clearly a Firefly ripoff. CLEARLY! I’ll admit, Firefly was the principle inspiration for the entire game. It’s okay though, I promise, because absolutely nothing from Firefly canon will be seen in this game. The premise may be similar (and maybe that’s why it’s attractive,) but the game has it’s own unique canon, feel and atmosphere. I hope you’ll enjoy playing it as much as I am writing it.
