We have some exciting news about a new game - Lander.

In the year 2192, the GCC Intrepid was launched by six global corporations to colonise the first planet outside of our solar system. A vessel, affectionately known as the Lander, carrying 60 engineers, scientists and operations staff was launched from the Intrepid to prepare the planet for human life. However, when entering the planet’s atmosphere, the ship’s navigation system malfunctioned, resulting in a crash that prevented enough life support for all the crew members in stasis. Only a fraction of the crew is available to complete the missions, with just a handful of resources and items at their disposal.

Your story begins here.

Each player assumes the role of one of the corporations that funded the Intrepid. The objective of the game is simple: achieve the most mission stars in five rounds of colonisation. To do this, you must cultivate the planet and develop your crew so that you have the skills, traits and resources necessary to complete missions.

In each round, you expand out from the Lander, claiming new tiles and generating resource income. As you collect resources, you have important choices to make. Do you use your resources to unlock new crew members from stasis? Do you purchase training or item cards to enhance your crew’s abilities? Do you buy action cards to impact other crews or bolster your own?

It’s a brave new world. In Lander, no tile or crew member is safe from the unpredictable nature of the planet, or the corporate interests of your competitors.
