As the captain on board a Mandate starship, you lead a crew through the galaxy who adapt and grow as they fight alongside you.

There are a lot of sci-fi RPGs out there, but we feel there’s something lacking. Being huge fans of the sci-fi genre, we wondered why spaceships feel so empty? What’s missing? Looking back to all the TV and Movies that inspired us, like Star Trek, Battlestar Galactica or Firefly, we realised games are missing something integral: a crew. A ship without a crew feels hollow and meaningless, so we’ve taken space travel to the next level. The dangers of space should not only test your metal, but your flesh. We wanted to make a game where you’re not a solid, singular object in a sky-box; you are a captain in an evolving, dynamic ship that hundreds of people call home. They adapt to you, and grow with you as you fight alongside them, and if you suffer losses, you’ll feel the loss that comes with that.

We want to create a complete sci-fi RPG experience. Support us on Kickstarter.

Out with a bang

News 1 comment

Hi all,

After 60 days on Kickstarter we are happy to announce that The Mandate has been funded!!!

Final tally:
Kickstarter: $701,010
PayPal: $15,000

This means we hit our $600,000 stretch goal for away missions AND our $700,000 stretch goal for starbase boarding operations which is fantastic news. We will continue funding via PayPal as well as transferring all our backers over to BackerKit where you may manage your pledges and buy digital add-ons. The BackerKit will be open for business in a couple of weeks and stay open until at least end of January 2014. Who knows, perhaps we will hit the $800,000 mod support stretch goal as well? ;)

Our devs will take a well-earned rest now but we will be providing regular updates on the progress of development as well as more details about the upcoming community design process which should be very interesting and different. We have big plans!

Oh, and since our Knighthoods were so popular, and several of you felt bummed about not getting one, we decided to swap around our backer rewards so everybody on PayPal and Kickstarter will get at least one Knighthood!

From all us at Perihelion Interactive, thank you, thank you, thank you to our great, supportive and mature community!

Suvarov is angry; so are the Dukes. I do not care. I will do whatever I must to protect the Mandate.

Call them criminals, pirates, traitors. I call them my Corsairs.

The files of others speak of blood-thirsty or treacherous rogues, warriors who gave no quarter.

Some of the captains who were court-martialed under his seal were, I suspect, wrongly judged.

He allowed the Grand Fleet to become another palace where nobles and courtiers played their petty games. He let corruption fester.
