The German publisher “Uhrwelt-Verlag”, a sublabel of Ulisses Spiele, has secured the rights to produce a new version of the classic steampunk roleplaying game Space: 1889. Instead of using the rules of the original game, they will use Exile Game Studio’s Ubiquity rules. The new Space: 1889 game will probably be in German language first. As far as I know they haven’t announced an English version, yet.
I still have one of Heliograph‘s reprint of the original core rule book lying around somewhere and I had some plans to run a Space: 1889 campaign using a modern rules system, but perhaps I will just wait for this upcoming edition.
For more information on that subject, you can check out this thread at the Ulisses forums (German language only).
Have there been any developments with this version of the game? If an English version were possible, a league of gamers would stop at nothing to obtain it…
I spoke to the publisher at RPC 2012 and he told me that the game should be done in the next months. An English version is still a possibility.
Thanks for the quick reply~
