Galaxy of Pen & Paper blasts off

Metamen

The scamps behind Knights of Pen & Paper and Chroma Squad are back at it with another RPG where the battles we fight are fictional inside the game world. Galaxy of Pen & Paper [official site] is an RPG about a group of people playing a sci-fi RPG. That’s in a similar vein to Knights of Pen & Paper, though this time developers Behold Studios have also boshed in spaceship battles for your scientific satisfaction. Observe:

It’s a turn-based RPG with monsters to fight, items to loot, levels to gain, dice to roll, and spaceships to battle. Only you’re playing people who are playing this as a tabletop RPG, which means they gab about the game and have customisation options like your gamesmaster’s chair. Behold Studios say:

“Created by the original team behind Knights of Pen & Paper, Galaxy of Pen & Paper is an RPG simulation game that juxtaposes the world of pen-and-paper RPGs with roleplaying video games. The new game retains the retro look and classic turn-based gameplay of its predecessor, but incorporates a sci-fi theme that lets players man spaceships, explore planets, and battle their way across the stars. Experience all the fun of a pen-and-paper RPG without the lost dice!”

Knights publishers Paradox took the series to another studio for its sequel, see, while Behold Studios did their own thing. Behold are self-publishing this one.

Galaxy of Pen & Paper is out now on Windows and Mac, with a Linux version to follow “soon”. It’s £10.99/14,99€/$14.99 on Steam and a touch cheaper in the Humble Store, which offers a Steam key as well as DRM-free versions.
