Description

Escape From the Aliens In Outer Space is a card game of strategy and bluff set on a badly damaged deep space research ship. On-board systems have failed, plunging the ship into darkness. But even worse: a mysterious alien plague has crept aboard and is transforming the human crew into horrendous monsters! The remaining crewmen desperately try to save their lives by escaping from the derelict spaceship, but in the darkness the aliens are lurking… hungry for human flesh. In Escape From the Aliens In Outer Space, each player assumes the role of either a Human or an Alien. The Humans are trying to save themselves by reaching the Escape Hatches. The Aliens seek to hunt down all the Humans. Each player’s identity and position is kept secret: you will need to interpret the movements and behaviors of the other players to learn who and where they really are.

History

For the last four years, medical équipe led by doctor Antonio Merz has been working on spaceship SELVA to find the cure for the Bellavita's disease, a brain-degenerative illness that has been killing people on Earth by the millions. In the last few weeks research had begun showing positive results thorough the implantation of alien spores in the cerebral cortex of a selected number of guinea pigs. On the morning of the 26th of July chief medical attendant Fabrizio Miraggio was put in quarantine following an incident with one of the experimental animals: security personnel had to forcefully block him while he was trying to devour Bibsy-332, an experimental monkey carrying the spores. On the 28th of July all communication with spaceship SELVA ceased.

About Santa Ragione

Boilerplate
Santa Ragione is an Italian micro game design studio founded by Pietro Righi Riva and Nicolò Tedeschi in 2010, creators of FOTONICA, MirrorMoon EP, and Wheels of Aurelia. Santa Ragione’s games focus on achieving a visceral response from the player, whether through the desolate landscapes of MirrorMoon EP, the uncompromising, vertigo-inducing speeds of FOTONICA, or the controversial politics in Wheels of Aurelia. The studio has a unique, experimental approach to accessibility that encourages exploration and personal interpretation, to achieve surprising depth. Santa Ragione’s inspiration comes equally from evocative electronica and contemporary art, to strive and stand out stylistically and continue the tradition of Italian design.
