I’m a fan of RPG videogames and while some might assume that would mean I have a heart for table top roleplaying, it sadly does not. I’ve had a few experiences trying them, and while fun they go on way too long and I just don’t find myself as stimulated. So what would happen if there was a game that presented itself as a table top sci-fi experience but rolled into a classic turn based videogame? The answer is surprisingly good, though with some problems.
Event, the award-winning sci-fi narrative exploration game in which players must build a relationship with a lonely spaceship computer to get home, is coming to Windows PC and Mac this September via Steam and the Humble Store by Humble Bundle. A new teaser trailer for the game that poses the question, “What would you say to a computer if your life depended on it?” can be viewed at event0game.com.
