I love science fiction.

I read it, I watch it and I'd like to play it. I haven't had much access to sci-fi games in the past but am really looking forward to some of the new crop that are coming.

In the meantime, below is a list of what I've noticed is coming soon - please add whatever I've missed.

(BTW - I'm into 'hard' sci-fi. I.e. I see fantasy as a separate category, if you're wondering why I haven't included those games here).

Est. 2008. SEVEN(!) years and still going strong!

*UPDATE July 2015 - click here to jump to new additions*

If you're new to this list and you're interesting in games with a sci-fi theme, hit the subscribe button. As you can see the list is updated regularly (several times a month).

From Issue #19 of the Z-man Newsletter:

"Ascending Empires is a game for 2-4 players,
designed by Ian Cooper. The remnants of the
Human race has fled to a new galaxy fearing
destruction from an unstoppable enemy. In their
new home they find the relics of four dead Alien
civilizations, and the race to develop new
technologies from these ancient clues has begun.
Players settle new worlds by building colonies, cities
and research facilities. They develop new
technologies and build up great armadas. When the
pool of victory points is depleted the game is over,
and the player with the largest share is the victor.
On their turn a player must choose one of the
possible actions: Recruit Troops, Move, Build
Structure, Develop Technology and Mine.
Troops are useful as they can be developed into
Starships, but are also required to defend a planet
against enemy assault.
Moving includes Launching Starships, moving
Starships and Landing Starships. With each planet
colonized worth points, gaining and defending
them is vital. Movement of Starships is performed
by flicking them, making for a unique game that
combines both the meat of developing a civilization
and attacking the enemy with a dexterity element.
Buildings are vital as they not only add to the
defensive value of a planet, but they allow a player
to build more Starships and Troops, as well as
develop technologies they may not have been able
to without them. Technologies are also vital, these
are worth points, but also provide important ingame
bonuses.
Ascending Empires is, we hope, a unique
contribution to this genre of Science Fiction game!"

The Thing is an unauthorised non-collectable, non-profit game for two to six players, based on the 1982 horror movie masterpiece "John Carpenter's The Thing", and simulates the paranoid members of an American Antarctic research facility (Outpost 31) being overrun by - or conquering - a parasitic alien organism capable of perfectly imitating its victims. One player begins as the Thing - all the other players start as human.

Eclipse places you in control of vast interstellar civilizations, competing for success. You will explore new star systems, research technologies and build spaceships. There are many potential paths to victory, so you need to plan your strategy according to the strengths and weaknesses of your species while paying attention to the other civilizations' endeavors.

Eclipse is an epic empire building game with a relatively short playing time. Even though the mechanisms are Euro-type, the theme is woven seamlessly into the game.

The game is still in prototype phase. The design is almost finished, however, and we are looking for a publisher.
