Description
Release date: First quarter 2015
IMPORTANT: We have now been Greenlit by the community. Thank you to all who took time to review and vote on our project. While we have not set final sales prices for The Mandate, Kickstarter backers will receive the lowest price / most bang for the buck. Anybody who backs us on Kicksarter will get a choice of a Steam key or other DRM-free alternative. Check latest announcement for more details.

As the captain on board a Mandate starship, you lead a crew through the galaxy who adapt and grow as they fight alongside you.

UPDATE: Play Scourge of The Mandate and try your hand at piracy with our text adventure here[www.mandategame.com]

There are a lot of sci-fi RPGs out there, but we feel there’s something lacking. Being huge fans of the sci-fi genre, we wondered why spaceships feel so empty? What’s missing? Looking back to all the TV and Movies that inspired us, like Star Trek, Battlestar Galactica or Firefly, we realised games are missing something integral: a crew. A ship without a crew feels hollow and meaningless, so we’ve taken space travel to the next level. The dangers of space should not only test your metal, but your flesh.

We wanted to make a game where you’re not a solid, singular object in a sky-box; you are a captain in an evolving, dynamic ship that hundreds of people call home. They adapt to you, and grow with you as you fight alongside them, and if you suffer losses, you’ll feel the loss that comes with that.

That’s where the drama is, that’s where the story happens, and it’s the interacting with people on the deck that makes this a complete experience.

We want to create a complete sci-fi RPG experience.

We've written 1500 years of history. It's up to you to write the future. The explorable reaches of space mix hand-crafted and procedurally generated content and is packed with historically relevant easter-eggs offering insight into the Mandate's rich lore.

The Mandate is a complete singleplayer sci-fi RPG with optional 6 player cooperative designed for Windows, Linux and Mac.


COOP EXPLAINED - Please head to our Kickstarter campaign linked on this page for the general FAQ where the majority of questions will be answered.

It's true that The Mandate is cooperative with up to six players, and there will certainly be mechanics and aspects of the game that complement cooperative gameplay, rewarding those who choose to play this way (tactical specifications, variations on the trinity system, etc), but The Mandate is designed so that each captain decides his very own fate, and enjoys his very own story path. You needn't play with friends, or seldom play with them, it's entirely up to you. There's one thing we need to make very clear, and that is that The Mandate is being created with enough depth and drive to immerse players creative and strategic minds. Many cooperative games distract players from this side, but that's not what we're trying to do. You are your own captain, join your friends, or journey alone - mix, match, whatever you like. It's your sandbox.

It got pushed back, Alpha is some time after Gamescom, and the full game is expected early 2016

the re-schedule was for Alpha to be early Q3 2105 but some things pushed it back a little bit.

@ Malletmann117
Sorry about such a delay, It's mostly myself on the Steam Greenlight and I been neglecting it since Backerkit & Paypal are suppose to be phased out this month.

Did you email? Please ensure that you contact them through all available means; Try their kickstarter profile here; https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1964463742/the-mandate ( you must hit their "contact me" on the kickstarter page. There's not a direct link to do so on Kickstarter)
Or try to mail to: contact@perihelioninteractive.com at their company website and their game website contact@mandategame.com.


Usually they check twice a month or so, currently it seems most community staff is either busy or on holiday.

I preordered this game on Backerkit, and haven't heard anything from anyone since. Now Backerkit doesn't recognize the email I registered with. Please get in touch with me as soon as possible.
