A Post-Apocalyptic MMORPG.

Tau Station

All Around The World is also a game development studio that brings a little je ne sais quoi to games.

With our technical know how, our love of science, and curiosity towards human nature, we aim to develop a new type of MMORPG: a game we all want to play, a game with strong content, and thought provoking stories, a game designed with accessibility at heart, following the AA standards of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines, a game that remembers that science fiction means science, but also isn’t afraid to have a bit of fun with it, a game that brings the richness of popular graphic MMORPGs to a text-based environment that runs in your browser, no plugins or download required.

Introducing Tau Station

Tau Station is a free-to-play text MMORPG, set in a post-apocalyptic future drawing heavy inspiration from many sci-fi classics. We’d say “Think Mad Max meets Firefly,” but our lawyers said “no.” So, pretend we didn’t say that. In fact, because it’s a text-based game, it’s an MMORPG you can play at work, but pretend we didn’t say that, either.

Using Perl, Javascript, and PostgreSQL we are offering:

  • Hundreds of space stations and missions to explore at your own pace
  • Missions with multiple outcomes that depend on your character’s choices
  • Competitive and cooperative play options
  • A deep science fiction story that unfolds as you play
  • An evolving setting affected by the actions of the players
  • Elite-style trading
  • Free-to-play, but not pay-to-win
  • Browser-based - play from anywhere, with nothing to download

The development of Tau Station is well underway. For more information visit www.taustation.space
