In a Galaxy, Far, Far Away… of Pen and Paper

From those magnificent pixel loving retro game developers over at Behold Studios, comes their next romp into the old-school world of tabletop inspired RPG gaming, but this time we’re heading out into the far reaches of space and time with Galaxy of Pen and Paper (sorry, no Star Wars here, this is not the game you are looking for).

If you haven’t heard of these guys yet, all I must ask is, what rock have you been living under?! The Knights of Pen and Paper series have been on fire for quite some time on both mobile and Steam services, I myself have put in plenty of hours into the hilariously charming pixel series on both platforms, and plan to do much the same when Galaxy hits.

In the latest title in the Pen and Paper games, players will assemble their own customized party of sci-fi themed characters and play alongside the trusty Game Master yet again for plenty of die-rolling, side splitting good times… in space! Lots of grand adventures, loot and comical bickering, combined with new spaceship battles, updated combat system, planetary exploration, and multi-choice branching story decisions, all designed to keep us entertained for hours on end.

If HarmonQuest was a game, you’d be sure it was a game made by Behold Studios, which… well, now that I think of it, PLEASE make ‘HarmonQuest of Pen and Paper’, that would be such an amazing combination of two franchises, and an easy day one purchase from me and many others.

At this time, no current release date has been set, but what we do know is that Galaxy of Pen and Paper will hit Steam on Windows, Mac and Linux later this year, hopefully a mobile version hits not too long after.
