hello, since it wasn't announced here, tau station is now in open alpha and you can create your accounts. For anyone who missed it, tau station is a very well written scifi text browser game. Humanity has entered post scarcity status, however not wanting for anything brings with it decadents and sure downfall. And this is exactly what happens, a giant catastrophy sweeps through the human worlds, leaving the planets uninhabited and many spacestations air and lifeless. However, out of the ashes, some have survived and are now attempting to rebuild, forming crude governments, retaking the ruined stations, and begin rebuilding the jumpgates linking the different solar systems with each other. However much has bin lost, the human's originally huge sphere of influence has shrunk down to a section of space about 40 lightyears across centered on the soul system. Much of the pre-catastrophy technology has also been lost and stations have to survive with what they have left. This is where you come in. In this universe, there's a lot to be done. Each station has missions you can do, from simple experiences that don't even take you out of the area you're in, to large, complex afaires that span multiple stations. You're able to start training in a career path such as medical or trade, and do tasks asociated with that career path. There's a lot more you should discover for yourself, of course. The writing is very good, so this is for anyone who enjoys narative and good storylines. Please note, this game is as of the writing of this post in open alpha, so it might still seam a little bit empty. You can already do a lot, but longterm plans for the game include the ability for space combat, asteroid mining, cargo trading, and of course the release of new stations or missions.
