IPMM 97: Interlude – Souls of Steel

“For the glory of Wal-Corp!”

In which we playtest our new game, Souls of Steel (by Dave and Elle)!

Souls of Steel is a Powered-by-the-Apocalypse game that emulates ensemble-cast ace pilot military dramas like Battlestar Galactica, Top Gun, Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann, the various Gundam series, etc. and computer games like Wing Commander.  The design goal is to develop entertaining social drama, punctuated by intense action sequences, against the backdrop of a larger war.

Here we’re testing an incomplete beta of the game.  Some elements are missing and some need to be refined, but this is the third playtest and we’re fairly happy with the overall structure and gameplay.

Enjoy!
