Spaceship RPG The Mandate Blasting Off In 2017

It's been a few years since Adam chatted with the folks making (and crowdfunding) The Mandate [official site] about their single-player starship-captaining RPG - lots of stuff about space-Tsars, building and training a crew, knocking out enemy ships' subsystems, and all that. The game's been delayed twice since then but a new trailer gives a peek at how The Mandate is coming on as it…

RPS Brings You Exclusive Kipling: The Mandate

If you were hoping that the endless generosity of RPS would stretch to a batch of Mr Kipling's exceedingly mediocre cakes, I am very sorry to disappoint you. Instead we bring you art, culture, poetry...and exclusive trailers for upcoming games. The video below shows a boarding operation taking place in The Mandate, the recently Kickstarted and hugely promising Tsaris space game. There's plenty of information…

Battlestart: The Mandate Hits Crowdfunding Goal

Based on what I've seen and read of The Mandate so far, it sounds like an Admiral Adama simulator - only Tsar-ier. Given that I┬ástill plan on growing up to be Battlestar Galactica's equal parts lovable and loathsome (also wise beyond his wrinkles) leader type, I am very OK with this. RPS' own Admiral Adam interviewed developer Perihelion recently, and new details only left me…

It contains all of those aspects in one great smouldering fusion of sci-fi concepts but that's not all. The Mandate is a lore-rich story of Tsars…

The Mandate Has (Literal) Space Opera

There's Space Opera, and then there's dudes singing opera over space opera. The Mandate is both of these in its new trailer, which shows off some in-game footage from the Kickstarting starship management game set against a backdrop of Imperial Russian space expansion (Tsars Vs The Stars, I call it.) The devs explain: "The gameplay trailer begins with neutral starship Zukov issuing a distress signal…

Tsar Trek: The Mandate Kickstarter

The crowds appear to enjoy funding space games, hence the golden tophats of the Elite: Dangerous team and Chris Roberts' newfound habit of paying urchins to deliver laminated press releases by hand. One of the little ragamuffins arrived this morning, doffed his cloth cap (golden cloth) and thrust a sealed manila envelope into my mitts (golden manila). The foolscap sheet inside simply read: "By the…

Tsarist Space Struggle: The Mandate

There's a trailer for The Mandate below and today's challenge is for you to work out what genre the actual game will belong to when Perihelion Interactive release it. Don't run off to Google to find the solution, just peel back the lids of your eyes and watch the video. You might want to unclog your ears as well so that the stirring, solemn music…
