Space is the worst — empty, black, airless, awash in radiation, and dotted with immense clods of flaming plasma that make everything within millions of miles too hot to support life. If your living room were like space, you'd never ever go there.
In Gloom in Space, you make your rag-tag band or star-faring heroes miserable, then kill them. Sci-fi archetypes like the Smuggler, Captain, Doctor, and Dark Lord fight their fathers, meddle with monoliths, get caught in compactors, and wind up getting nuked from orbit. Eventually, enough Untimely Deaths come to pass that the game ends. And then? The most miserable crew wins.
Gloom in Space is a standalone game that's also compatible with all existing Gloom core games and expansions.
