Space Station 13

Genre(s): Massively Multiplayer,
RPG (Role Playing)/MMORPG,

3rd Party Rating: None found.

Price: Free


Space Station 13 is a FREE multiplayer sandbox game where players take on the roles of a crew on a space station, doing their jobs and keeping everything in order. However, some of the players are placed in the roles of antagonists with goals and abilities to murder, steal, manipulate, shape-shift, etc.

Space Station 13 was designed to be role-play heavy wherein an orderly space station would be disturbed by a controlled event, whether it be a traitor on-board the station with an objective or a meteor shower tearing the station apart. In practice, however, the game boils down to barely containable anarchy. Players generally act only out of self-interest, constantly lying through their teeth and waiting for the best opportunity to beat their colleagues to death with a toolbox and then fart in their faces. It runs on the BYOND engine and is notable for its relatively complex systems, such as modeled atmospherics, human and animal genetics, and a “robust” combat system. A free BYOND account and client is required to play.
