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).

Collectible cards from a kids magazine. This may be stretching the definition of 'game' - at least in this context.

I'm not sure but I think the theme for this goes something like this: set in the future, robot dinosaurs fight each other. Does that sum it up? Is that cool enough for ya?

This Russian game, which google translates as Stellar Line, but the game page calls Star Frontier, looks awesome (and visually reminds me of Full Metel Plante).

From the game page description:

"Everyone is informed of the terrible cataclysm which endangers this little planet at the far end of our galaxy. We have to help the different races that inhabit it, as they have no choice that to seek refuge on new planets. Today, we learned that Earth will welcome 5 different extraterrestrial tribes: the Bloups, the Paroks, the Faars, the Mutas and the Napils. The issue is that no-one is able to predict how these 5 species will co-habit together...

The game is played in several turns, each made of 2 phases:
- New Flouks
- Entrance in the Village

Each player takes 4 cards, keeps 2 of them and give the 2 others to his neighbors. Everyone then choose one of the cards in his hand and play it simultaneously. The cards are resolved in the following order: Decrees, Flouks, Chief Flouks then Actions.

Decrees have an effect only on their owner: it increases the amount of a type of Flouks depending on a some conditions. The action of a decree lasts all game long and we can have only 1 decree per village.

The Flouks are only used to populate the village. The Chiefs Flouks can enter a village only if a Flouk of the same specy is already there. The Chief has a power which apply when he enters the village.

The actions all have different effects that apply only when they are played."

Web-published. From 2011 but it only just caught my eye.

Edit: this item (in case it isn't clear from the comments) was formerly Battlestar Galactica: Express (a PnP) and since it has been picked up by Stronghold Games it has changed in the database to Dark Moon.

According to the Stronghold release schedule it is due to come out Q1 2015.
(http://strongholdgames.com/)

Edit: new cover image added


(I like that it refers to BSG express on the cover).
