Alright, soldiers. It’s time to talk seriously about your future in the Imperium. Specifically, let’s discuss your plans for after you muster out. Some of you may want to look into free trading. Some of you may be in search of mercenary tickets. Some of you might just want to wander. In any case, what you’ll almost definitely want to do is put some credits in your pocket. No matter what your goals are, you should probably take a look at this:
It’s the teaser trailer for the just announced Traveller AR, which is currently being hyped at Booth 415 of the Screenburn Arcade at SXSW Interactive in sunny Austin, TX.
This is an iPhone/iPod Touch game that is being developed by actual pen & paper gamers who know Traveller and love it. Big Daddy Marc Miller is involved. As is the Loren Wiseman, who was actually hanging out at the booth today. Take a look at the site and sign up for the beta (if you happen to be the sort who has an appropriate device at your disposal, anyway – they tell me they hope to support other platforms eventually, but it’s all iLand for now). Kicking off your career with a bonus Cr1,000,000 is a good thing.
I saw a demo and this game looks sharp. I’ll be sure to update y’all when I get going in the beta (which is expected to get underway in May – just so you know the perspective in which to keep things). But seriously, do sign up for the beta. That way we can all bust up the Third Imperium in proper grognard style.
