The Economy of Tau Station

As in any capitalist economy, life among the stars still entails activities related to acquiring or spending money. In the Tau universe, this involves two key currencies, each of which is made and used in different ways. Sometimes it’s good to go back to basics, so today’s blog aims to help you brush up on your interstellar economics!

From a media channel on the Mesh hosting personal journals and video-blogs, we bring you ‘Parenting with Alika!’ Below is a transcript of Alika’s segment-long episode on bonds and credits, so you too can remember why capitalism is such an enduring system!Continue reading "The Economy of Tau Station"

The Systems of Tau Station

Today, we want to have a look at how far Tau Station has come since we first shared our galaxy with you in 2016. There are currently five solar systems implemented, which you can explore at your own leisure within the game, and one more is soon to launch (or so they say – Freebooters have a tendency to sidestep expectations). There are currently 83 systems we have planned as a grand total.

With so many places to explore and stories to take part in, it’s useful to get some space-bound perspective. Last tenspan we gave you a primer to the story through The Tale of Tau Station, so now it’s time for an overview of star systems!Continue reading "The Systems of Tau Station"

If you back us on the Comestible Designer tier on Kickstarter, we’ll cook up a new consumable item, whether food, drink or something in between.

Kickstarter Special: Weapon Co-Creation

If you back us on the Weapon Designer tier on Kickstarter, you can decide what will protect you during your intergalactic adventures. Design something portable but powerful, beautiful and imposing, or even masquerading as an innocuous accessory, which other Citizens will be able to buy.Continue reading "Kickstarter Special: Weapon Co-Creation"

Bring your ideas to life and create your own slice of space that all Citizens will be able to explore!Continue reading "Kickstarter Special: Station Co-Creation"
