The Story of Weird Worlds

In the 22nd century, colony ships were programmed to search for Earth-like planets along trajectories calculated to visit stars with the best likelihood of habitable worlds. One such ship with its crew and passengers in cryostasis traveled over 2300 light years before a suitable planet was found.

HopePlanet Hope is a temperate world located in the Glory system on the edge of a vast nebula often referred to as the Purple Void. The nebula is unique in that it contains many unusual star types and other peculiar phenomena.

Over 100 years have passed since the colonists first arrived. It is a new beginning of deep space exploration. Technology has improved and mankind is no longer dependent on slow cryoships and robot probes. This is the setting of Weird Worlds: Return to Infinite Space.

Your mission is to explore the sector of space within a set time limit, and return to tell your tale (and collect your rewards)! You may choose to play as a peaceful research scientist tasked with catalogueing alien lifeforms and examining astronomical phenomena, a private space jockey looting the universe for material gain, or a military officer seeking to secure humanity’s new home by diplomatic means or direct action.
