• This game is under the Sci-Fi & Strategy genres.
  • The game system is Triplanetary / Homebrew.
I decided to implement the Steve Jackson’s Triplanetary as a fully automated PBEM-style game and play it on the internet with friends. The original rules are here:
At the moment, I have programmed all the basic functions of the original game (draw map, buy this, sell that, move there, etc.) using macros and added a few experimental tweaks. The game is ready to run a «Monster game» which Steve Jackson dreamed to make but never made.
And the most important thing: the potential of the game is such that it can be developed almost indefinitely, depending on the mood and the availability of time, and, as a distant prospect, given there will be enough dedicated players, I can make out of it something like a strategical game based on The Expanse series.
