Based on classic arcade shoot-em-ups from Galaga to Gradius, Inglorious Space is a turn-based card and board game about working together... as long as it's profitable. Players take control of ace bounty hunters and use "Command Cards" to pilot their fighters across space, shoot enemies, collect powerups and activate unique character abilities.
Utilizing a simple card system based on the directional pads of retro game consoles, players spend cards to move their fighters as efficiently as possible, fire their weapons at enemies, and even ram into other players. But once the enemy phase begins, new dangers spawn at the top of the map while enemies leftover from the previous round move down and attack. And if they get to the bottom, everyone is in trouble! Will you use your last card to move out of enemy fire or to shoot down an enemy to add to your score? In Inglorious Space, every move counts!
With 4 unique pilots, multiple difficulty modes, and even a tense singleplayer high score mode, there's plenty of ways to play. And with the unique spawning system, you'll see new enemy patterns every time.
The Kickstarter trailer and full-game live stream below feature earlier prototypes that have been improved for the final game:
Inglorious Space is an awesome tabletop game that certainly takes me back to the good ol’ days when angrily spiking your NES controller into the ground was a thing. 8/10
