A downloadable game
This game was created for the DOS Games Jam, and should be considered in early access. If this game proves popular enough, it will be expanded into a full game! I'm interested in feedback, so if you have any, please drop me a line on Twitter or in the comments.
The year is 200X.
Humanity made first contact in 1980. Today they're united under the Earth Space Federation, a grand alliance who travels the stars and settles other worlds in Windows-powered ships. Easy access to other stars is made possible by ancient jump gates, who send ships through a hyperspace of surreal colours and chill beats.
It's not all chill in real space. Terra is caught in a political conflict between two blocs locked in a cold war: the Stellar Pact, a federation of cool and somewhat spiritual aliens, and the Pax Avium, an empire run by birds who modeled their government on the Roman Republic. There are many other aliens out there too; some want to forge closer relations to humanity, others are hostile.
You are space traders and mercenaries who travel in search of adventure, meeting new people and exploring new worlds. One way or another, your decisions could shape the future of humanity.
Capax Astra is a vaporwave space opera RPG inspired by Star Control, about exploring sectors full of strange alien people. It uses the Fate RPG system.
Capax Astra assumes you have Fate Condensed or some familiarity with the Fate system. You can get FCon in pay-what-you-want format here.
