THIS IS THE ULTRA RARE SPACE ROGUE FROM ORIGIN - NO SCARF INCLUDED !
BEFORE SPACE COMBAT RPGS DISAPPEARED OFF THE FACE OF THIS PLANET -I.E EVEN BEFORE THEY HAD BEN INVENTED ! ORIGIN WERE MAKING EXCELLENT ONES LIKE THIS COMBINING THE SPACE FLIGHT OF ELITE WITH A TOP DOWN RPG ELEMENT AS YOU LANDED ON PLANETS AND COMPLETED QUESTS - THIS IS IN MINT CONDITION WITH ALL CONTENTS PERFECT IN THE ORIGINAL RETAIL BIG BOX
The player takes on the role of a space traveller who is sent by his captain to investigate a derelict spacecraft. While he is onboard, aliens attack his mothership and destroy it. He is left with the small craft he was sent to investigate, with little money and no ties. Players decided their fate from there. They could engage in piracy, hunt bounties, become interstellar merchants or become embroiled in the interplanetary politics
It is also notable for being the last game designed for Origin by Paul Neurath before he went on to found Looking Glass Studios ! not bad outdoing Elite and starting up the softco that would give us Ultima Underworld , terranova, the thief series, the System Shock series and many more too good to mention !
SPACE ROGUE BACK IN 1989 OUTDID ELITE FOR MANY PEOPLE EVEN IF IT HAD ONE OF THE CAMPEST COVERS EVER ! well this was the 80's ! THAT COVER DESERVES ANOTHER LOOK ....
sigh...IF ONLY THEY MADE GAMES WITH THIS MUCH AMBITION THESE DAYS .........
