Space Station Escape – Game Design

Space Station Escape is a game about a mad scientist who has created terrible creatures with plans to unleash them to cleanse the planet below of humanity. A secret agent has infiltrated the station to rig it to explode. At the last moment as the Agent rights the station’s power core to overload, the mad scientist discovers the plot and ruptures the hull of the agent’s craft, but both the agent and the mad scientist are in a mad race to the lone escape pod, using gear and weapons they pick up on the way to get past obstacles such as monsters (gosh, somehow they got released in all the chaos!), fires, fallen bulkheads, locked doors, and security systems gone haywire.

I have only played this once, with myself, but thought I’d post it, and see what people thought.

Give it a play, and let me know if it works, or is broken. Then maybe I can fix it. I’ll play it more too.

Additional info on the process after game instructions below.

See the game posted on Unpub!

Legacy of Romulus – Borgs and Brains

Secret identity secured, we flew Nohtho Thrai’s ship to the Unroth system and created a ruse in which I warned the Tal Shiar of an impending attack. It was all for show, but our deceptions proved successful and put us in the good graces of the Tal Shiar. This allowed be to beam over to the lead enemy vessel, where a KDF prisoner was being held.

I took the liberty of exploring the security commander’s office and gather some information. There was some rather embarrassing information on his computer. Apparently he had been having an affair with someone and he had just discovered was a blood relative of his. His mistress had secretly been after some of his family wealth, and had been using him to get information. There’s more details, some quite disturbing, but considering I think he’s dead now, I’ll just leave it at that.

Before he died, however, I did put him in his place when he found me in his office. Some people act tough, and many people are intimidated by them, but I overpowered him with pure presence. Read the rest of the story…

Legacy of Romulus – Hostile Takeover

Sorry my that of late my story has been silent, but I was not in a position send communications, for I as assumed to be dead. I was not, however.

The Republic had a lead on getting my undercover. They have been recruiting members of the Republic. No Tal Shiar in their right mind would allow me in their ranks as they all want me as dead as I want them. However, they did have their eye on a Republic Reman, Nohtho Thrai, who was getting disenchanted with D’Tan’s ways. Someone on his ship sent word. That informant hasn’t been heard from since.

We took a damaged shuttle out to where Nohtho was suspected to be, near a planet. Between the shuttle and planet was a cloaked ship.

I put out a distress call when Nohtho’s ship was in range, and they came, and beamed be aboard. Feigning injury, I was sent to sick bay and spoke with Nohtho there. Meanwhile his crew was salvaging what they could from the freighter. I was able to determine through conversation that Nohtho was indeed intending in joining the Tal Shiar.

That’s when I triggered a signal to the cloaked ship, which was a Republic science ship. Using it’s finely tuned scanners and transporter systems, it beamed Nohtho and myself from his ship down to the planet, the science ship bridging the distance between the two.

There I slayed him without a moments hesitation. I focused all of my mental energies and tore his mind apart in his confusion, then broke his neck.

A group of KDF ships arrived on cue and “captured” Nohtho’s ship, which would now be my ship. Later, I would “escape” from the Klingon’s and keep the identity of Nohtho, and act as him to go undercover.
