A new trailer has been released for The Mandate, fleshing out some of the game’s lore and featuring some pretty artwork as well.
Described as a “sandbox sci-fi RPG” by developers Perihelion Interactive, The Mandate has managed to raise almost $500, 000 in funding though it’s Kickstarter campaign (which will end on December 2nd).
The game lets players command a large space-ship with a massive crew as they as they set out on various space-quests in a sci-fi universe resembling Tsarist Russia. The Mandate has so far been well received by critics, with several praising it’s unique gameplay style. Similar to the gameplay aboard Mass Effect‘s Normandy, The Mandate will emphasize gameplay aboard a large spaceship, and players’ interaction with its crew members which evolve as the game progresses. The developers also intend to make the game a co-op experience, allowing up to 6 players to work together.
The Mandate is set for release sometime in Q1 of 2015 for Windows, Mac, and Linux, and will be available through Steam.
