Teens in Space from Renegade Game Studios, Hunters Entertainment and Infectious Play Publishing

 Teens in Space

Renegade Game Studios has partnered with Hunters Entertainment and Infectious Play Publishing for a new roleplaying game. Teens In Space is landing everywhere in August 2019!

The game is designed and developed by Jonathan Gilmour and Doug Levandowski. The roleplaying game sets the stage as you and your group of friends venture into the cosmos for adventure and profit. Along the way, your crew’s bonds will be tested, your ship will malfunction, and you’ll probably get shot a few times. But that’s all in a day’s work for Teens in Space!

Player characters will take on the roles of adolescents of a variety of species at the age of nearly full maturity. Closing near their full physical and intellectual potential they lack experience and wisdom. You’ll travel the stars in a customized starship of your own design. Through your adventures, you may discover many things about the galaxy you inhabit. You’ll also discover more about yourself at this formative stage just before adulthood.

Teens in Space is an all-in-one 122-page full-colored book. It features art by Heather Vaughn and with sections for both players and GMs. The game is powered by the Kids on Bikes system. That creates a streamlined world-building and storytelling experience. This game is optimized for crews of 2-6 players aged 8+ with a dedicated storyteller at the helm.
