[Kickstarter] The Mandate (Sci fi ship and character RPG)

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
So I just recently saw this kickstarter project called 'The Mandate'

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1964463742/the-mandate

Here are the unique features they are pitching:
Quote:
  • 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.

Some of these features sound genuinely promising, especially considering some of these are often the target of idealization for many RPG sci fi nuts. You can even play a small interactive ship 'painting and designing' program they made on this site: http://www.mandategame.com/mandateshipbuilder/shipbuilder.html

Thoughts?

Looks great, but I've been burned by too many pre orders that didn't live up to there hype. So will wait till release.

This looks pretty cool.
I think I will pledge.
Hopefully this will be intuitive and will actually feel like being a federation captain.
