    Space Station 13 - Running in Stations.

    I've played this on and off for about a year now, but never gotten around to writing this up.



    What is Space Station 13?
    Space Station 13 is a free 2D sprite and tile-based sandbox roleplaying game. It's written in BYOND, which accounts for its atrocious controls and limited graphical capability. Despite its shortcomings, it's amazingly fun for what it is

    What started as a simple model of gas and temperature flow evolved into a fully fledged game based on modelling a working space station. In the game you're able to interact in a number of ways, from building walls and floors, down to combining items to create whole new equipment like computers and cyborgs.

    At the beginning of each round, players are assigned one of many jobs on the station and are tasked with keeping their part of it in order. Medbay heal the injured and revive the dead, Engineering start the engine and conduct repairs, Security keep things in check, Science conduct various types of research, while the AI tries to find loopholes in its three ASIMOV laws in order to kill the crew.

    To make things interesting there are a variety of game modes (Traitor, Changeling, Revolution, Nuclear, Alien, Meteor, Wizard or Cult) where random characters (antagonists) will be assigned objectives like steal an item, assassinate a specified crew member, absorb the DNA of a certain amount of players, destroy the station, kill all the heads of department or summon Cthulhu.

    Gameplay
      Spoiler:
    The graphics are basic, the game can be laggy and the UI is a bit clunky, but I feel it more than makes up for this with the huge of things you can do ingame, with or without the mechanics.

    Chemists have access to chemicals to make anything from burn medication to napalm, chefs can cook nutritious food or can lace it with LSD, chaplains can hold services for the dead or whip the crew into a raving frenzy, engineers can build a colony at the mining outpost or can build entire transport systems using disposal piping, librarians can write and upload books to a persistent library or can read out Squad Broken over the intercom until they're lynched, geneticists can give people superpowers or can give them Tourettes and botanists can re-tile the station in wood or spend their time growing weed.

    Even when you're dead, the game's not over. You're reincarnated as a ghost and can watch the action. Who knows, you may get recloned, your brain may be used to make a cyborg, you could upload your self as a personalAI, you could be summoned by a cultist or live again as an alien when a chestburster hatches

    Ingame screenshots
      Spoiler:
    This view of an unmanned Bridge and AI Upload shows the games graphical complexity.




    Made it, Ma! Top of the world!

    As an Atmosphere Technician, I acquired bombmaking materials from Science, blew up half the station, kidnapped the Head of Security and escaped alone after bludgeoning him to death with a fire extinguisher on the Escape Shuttle Bridge.

    Note the cool trenchcoat and sunglasses.





    Nuts and bolts
      Spoiler:
    There are half a dozen popular English language servers, each with its own flavour, wiki and forums, running one of two main branches of code. Goons develop one branch and keep their code secret, while 4chans /tg/ develop another and are open source which is used by all the others with few modifications.

    First you need to make an account.
    Then you need to download the client
    Once the client is downloaded and you're logged into BYOND either click the space station 13 tab or choose from one of these.

    The game client itself has it's ups and down, it's the weird and wonderful stuff the players can and will do that makes it entertaining.

    Learning curve's probably about the same as the old X-Com.

    This needs a bump.
    As it is awesome
    in the past 2 games I've been knocked unconscious and sacrificed to an evil god, and sedated, put in a straight jacked and locked in a casket in the morgue.

    This game rocks
