The Mandate on course to hit its kickstarter goal
As the company approaches their goal Ole Herbjørnsen, Executive Producer, Perihelion Interactive had the following to say: “The past week has been a record-breaking one for The Mandate and everyone at Perihelion is excited and humbled by the support we’ve received from the media and gaming community.”
The Mandate is a sci-fi RPG with 1,500 years of lore. In a galaxy ruled by the Tsars, you explore the world you meet various factions. I think the below features list might do a better job of explaining the game.
- Explore a world of culture, with 1500 years of lore, ruled by the Tsars. Survive a world of pirates, mercenaries & faction forces with their own agendas. Make enemies, or appease more powerful factions. The world reacts to your choices, and you must live with the consequences.
- Utilize the human chain of command to manage your crew. All hailing from various colony ships, tasked by you to fill their stations. Watch them grow, learn, and experience… watch them tire, break down, and die.
- Ships in The Mandate are the crew’s home. Blast through shields and bulkheads to knock out the various sub-systems, ejecting the crew into space – all in real time. Board the enemy, or defend against boarding! Fight from space as your friends put boots on the ground, or team-up and storm the enemy ship with RTS mechanics.
- Scavenge derelict wrecks and salvage what you can to survive. Expand your home base to rearm, upgrade and design new ships. Grow from a single frigate to a powerful battle squadron.
If you are still unsure on the story or the game itself, Perihelion Interactive has released a Backstory trailer, explaining the world.
There is also another newly released trailed called “The Captain we need?” This trailer offers more story information.
