How good a game is this for solo play? The components certainly look cool. Am I understanding correctly that the 40 hour gm-less stories can be run solo?

Yes! The core set includes a handful of Solo-able (or cooperative) encounters that scale to different difficulty difficulties. These Encounters will be supplemented by UnBound Games on a periodic basis as well as by the community when the Encounter Creation system is live.

But the First story-based campaign is finishing and the printed version will be here Q1 2014 (It will be available online first, however, for free.) It should be a pretty interesting system! We are keeping it in printed form, although I personally would prefer it as a voice acted app. But, for now, print. You can find some more details about this system at the bottom of this page:

I actually played the first one in coop mode. Worked very well! I can't determine off one play how it will scale to more than two, but played great with 2.

I've played most of the encounters Solo and Multiplayer. They do scale pretty well. Esoteric Counter Assault Squad always kicks my ass though. They are a tough one.

I've actually introduced a few people to the game through the encounters. Its a great way to get them used to the mechanics after you've played the tutorial.

I really can't wait for the Out of Eden Campaign though. That is going to be quite fun.

Cool this is what I wanted to hear. Sounds like a lot of potential here. Thanks for the replies everyone.

Major attention grabber, that. A voice acted app ... wow. That would be very cool.
