I love science fiction.

I read it, I watch it and I'd like to play it. I haven't had much access to sci-fi games in the past but am really looking forward to some of the new crop that are coming.

In the meantime, below is a list of what I've noticed is coming soon - please add whatever I've missed.

(BTW - I'm into 'hard' sci-fi. I.e. I see fantasy as a separate category, if you're wondering why I haven't included those games here).

Est. 2008. SEVEN(!) years and still going strong!

*UPDATE August 2015 - click here to jump to new additions*

If you're new to this list and you're interesting in games with a sci-fi theme, hit the subscribe button. As you can see the list is updated regularly (several times a month).


Like the list? Get (and display) the microbadge! mb

Note: Inclusion on this list is not an endorsement. Users can make up their own minds and use whatever criteria and discretion they would like to, to decide on the merits of each game in relation to their own gaming needs/tastes.

My personal attempt at Building a Sci-Fi Games Collection.

Coming soon from a young publisher. Only four games on their publishers page and one of them is a Sci-Fi themed game. Good for them!

Just look at the name! Whilst technically impossible it looks irresistible for Sci-Fi fans. Coming some time in 2010 from Z-Man.

Edit: 2 years after being added to this list of upcoming games it will be demoed at GenCon and there will be 60 copies available for sale there also. Everyone not able to grab one there will have to wait a bit longer.

Earth Reborn looks as though it may be Sci-Fi. Check out their website on the 'sneak peak' page, and you'll know as much as anyone; i.e. the title.

Edit: See item #106 for more info.

I know nothing about this game except that the name is kinda silly. Either it's a world or it's a space empire (many worlds), but it can't be both, right?

A PnP game grows up? Getting an official release by the looks of it. Looks nice.
