This past week at the Origins Game Fair, the Academy of Adventure Gaming Arts and Design awarded Paizo the award for Fan Favorite Best Roleplaying Game.
“We are honored, and humbled, to be chosen as the best RPG of the year by our fans. As game designers, winning any award is always gratifying, but fan-voted awards are especially meaningful. Fans are the people who play our games, and without players, the games themselves don’t serve much purpose,” said Starfinder Design Leads Robert G. McCreary and Owen K.C. Stephens. “We want to thank everyone who voted for Starfinder, as well as every fan who plays Starfinder, talks about the game with friends, and helps make Starfinder’s player base a vibrant community.”
I haven’t had a chance to play Starfinder (yet), but I know a lot of people are really enjoying this new RPG world.
Blast off into a galaxy of adventure with the Starfinder Roleplaying Game! Step into your powered armor and grab your magic-infused laser rifle as you investigate the mysteries of a weird universe with your bold starship crew. Will you delve for lost artifacts in the ruins of alien temples? Strap on rune-enhanced armor and a laser rifle to battle undead empires in fleets of bone ships, or defend colonists from a swarm of ravenous monsters? Maybe you’ll hack into the mainframe of a god-run corporation, or search the stars for clues to the secret history of the universe or brand new planets to explore. Whether you’re making first contact with new cultures on uncharted worlds or fighting to survive in the neon-lit back alleys of Absalom Station, you and your team will need all your wits, combat skill, and magic to make it through. But most of all, you’ll need each other.
Congrats go out to Paizo for this award.
