The classic Space Opera has been a little lost lately. More action and horror, many sci-fi properties lose a lot of that nostalgic feel of brave adventurers going through the stars. Tangent Space looks to recreate those glory days on your tabletops. The project is up on Kickstarter now.
From the campaign:
Tangent Space is a sci-fi tabletop roleplaying game that seeks to capture the grand scope and optimism of classic space operas. Featuring diverse alien societies, advanced technology, epic space battles, and a future worth fighting for.
Tangent Space is set within a nascent utopia where the various alien nations of the galaxy try to come together despite their differences. The year 3025 is a great time to live! The core worlds are peaceful and nobody is poor or homeless. The frontier is dangerous and unknown, begging for exploration and adventure. Grand and powerful factions compete for influence on the ever shifting galactic stage. Mysterious precursors have left treasures and warnings for those they deem worthy successors. The universe of Tangent Space is as limitless as our own galaxy!
The campaign is up and running now and is set to go for another 29 days.
