It’s a tabletop roleplaying game about heroic adventurers in the galaxy of the far future. With its hyper advanced technology humankind has spread to the stars, discovering ancient lost colonies and mysterious alien worlds. Using the popular and award-winning Fate Core rules,Mindjammerlets you play hardened mercenaries, cunning traders, steely-nerved pilots, intrigue-filled spies and culture agents, aliens, divergent hominids, artificial life forms, and even sentient starships.

Mindjammer – The Roleplaying Game is a 496-page hardback with gorgeous artwork and astrography by industry stalwarts such as Jason Juta, Eric Lofgren, Andreas Schroth, and Ian Stead. It’s a standalone game with everything you need to play, including innovative new rules for alien life, planets, and star systems, organisations, culture conflict, hypertech, starmaps, background material, virtual realities and techno-psionic powers, and much more.

“We’re really excited to be releasing Mindjammer – The Roleplaying Game,”said Sarah Newton, co-owner of Mindjammer Press and author of the game.“Chris Birch (Modiphius) and I have worked together on many titles, including the ENnie-award winning Achtung!

It’s great to be teaming up now to bring Mindjammer – The Roleplaying Game and its line of supplements and fiction to a wide and discerning audience, using Modiphius’s proven industry expertise and excellent track record. We’re looking forward to a regular release of Mindjammer products with Modiphius, beginning with the core rulebook this May.”

“Mindjammer was first introduced as an incredible supplement for the enormous Starblazer Adventures RPG and it’s fantastic that Sarah has now developed the universe into such an incredible setting and brought it bang up to date with the Fate Core ruleset. I know Fate and sci-fi fans are going to find one of the best and most comprehensive roleplaying games at their fingertips.” Said Chris Birch, Publisher of Modiphius.

Level 7 box

This thing looks AWESOME!

LEVEL 7 [ESCAPE], the all-new science fiction survival-horror board game set in the LEVEL 7 world, has sold out at the manufacturer level due to the high volume of distributor and retailer preorders and excitement built by promotions at GenCon and PAX. Though stock of (the game) is sold out at Privateer Press, the highly anticipated semi-cooperative game will be available to retailers from distributors and will be available in stores on September 19.

You are a captive of Subterra Bravo, imprisoned in the facility’s deepest laboratory, the hall of nightmares known as LEVEL 7. Your singular goal is to escape, but to do that you will have to evade the human and inhuman denizens of this subterranean labyrinth before the entire base is locked down, sealing you in for the rest of your short, tormented life. Will you work together with your fellow prisoners to endure Subterra Bravo’s endless perils, or will you use them to secure your own escape? Ultimately, your chances of survival will depend on how well you manage your greatest weapon, which is also your greatest threat: fear itself.

LEVEL 7 [ESCAPE] is a semi-cooperative, story-driven survival-horror board game for 1–4 players with nerves of steel and a willingness to confront the impossible.
