Looks like we’ve got another Sci-Fi RPG on the horizon.
Fragged Empire presents itself as an indie RPG set in a post, post apocalyptic future, where humanity is already gone, and four new races struggle to build a new society for themselves after barely surviving a genocidal war.
There’s a lot of information out on their website www.fraggedempire.com, with details as to the core themes of the setting, a description of the four races of the setting, and a short story to help convey the mood of the game.
I’m honestly floored by the visual design of this game. It reminds me a little bit of Wildstar, the new MMORPG that just launched, but in a good way. A quick peek at the documents in the free downloads section reveals that Fragged Empire has the potential to be very complex. The player sheets are pretty detailed, and any game that has a separate combat sheet tends to be very tactical in nature.
Overall, Fragged Empire seems to have a lot of potential as an indie sci-fi rpg. I’m looking forward to seeing more from this game, and will update the blog further once I get more information when they launch their Kickstarter campaign.
