Introducing Stellar Empire: Revolution
Our first board game to be published by Andak. This game will include all of the regular game trimmings, game boards, cards, tokens, meeples, and more! We’re excited to be bringing this game to market.
Stellar Empire is, at its core, a reskin of The Revolution – a board game designed by Andrew while he was in college. We’ve been unable to secure the licensing to a lot of the imagery in that game, so we’ve shelved it. The Revolution was based around the American Revolution, and tied together the need to build influence in the colonies in addition to winning battles. This mechanic felt like a perfect fit for our Stellar Empire world, and a better way to tell the story of the Ma’tens Junta revolt against the Rogers Republic.
The Fight for Astachill
Located on the far end of the Republic, the humanoid natives of Astachill have long adapted to the cold and have grown accustomed to a tough life. Three generations ago, the Rogers Republic annexed Astachill and the surrounding systems in accordance with the New Galactic Law authored by the Neupert Prefecture during the Formation Years.
The natives of Astachill, known to themselves as the Ma’tens, revoked the invasion and have never taken their uplifting to interstellar community lightly.
The First Revolution
The Fight of the Kings was the first organized revolution against the Republic. The war was short lived, and the royal line (which the Republic had attempted to leave in place to smooth the transition) was eradicated in retribution and to prevent any further attempts at revolution. The Fight of the Kings left a power vacuum filled by individuals, organizations, and criminals – fracturing the Ma’tens into perpetual servitude and domination.
The Junta Revolution
Stellar Empire Revolution centers on the war of independence fought by the Junta. In the official lore of Stellar Empire, the Junta is successful in throwing off the Republic by bringing the people together under the Junta’s banner, and casting the Republic away once and for all – while building a prosperous unification for their people. Now you have the chance to either follow suit, or carve your own path to victory!

A number of options are available to the technologically superior Rogers Republic – including nerve gas.
It’s just a matter of how far they’re willing to go…
Launching January 1st, 2022
This next installment in the Stellar Empire story is coming to Kickstarter on the first day of the new year, 2022. We’re still finalizing details and costs, but this is going to be a larger game than Stellar Empire: Skirmish. We’re going to continue our strategy of keeping the funding level as close to our required level as possible, to help us reach the goal.
