Tyranny and cruelty have spread across the galaxy, and only you can stop it!

Save the Universe is a sci-fi adventure roleplaying game in which the players create their own great galactic menace and then portray the brave heroes battling against it.

Will you be:

A relentless hunter, seeking revenge against the bloodthirsty admiral who bombed your home planet into oblivion?

A fallen noble, building a rebellion by forging interstellar alliances between feuding noble families?

A mysterious seer, searching for cosmic secrets, hoping to find a way to stop a plague of civilization-devouring alien insects?

By the time the pizza is gone, you’ll have an epic saga and a cast of characters. Then you can jump right into the action, with simple, story-focused rules that reduce prep time and reward players for pursuing their personal dramas.

Charge your blaster. Board your starship. Set your course.

Save the Universe.

Hi there! I wrote a capsule review of Save the Universe and figured you'd like to know. It's not entirely positive; sorry about that. Guess it's true what they say, that focusing on the negatives is so much easier.

In other news, the game page would look better with a gentler contrast than white on black, and uploading PNGs of the hero+saga sheets as screenshots would help as well.

Thanks for writing this and making it free!


Thanks very much for the review! And those are good suggestions about the game page. I'll see what I can do as soon as I get a few free moments.
