Here's an easy way to feed your thirst for some homebrew sci-fi gaming for just $20. In the process you'll help fund two retro-styled games: one pen-and-paper RPG and the other a graphic adventure video game.
I'm sure you've caught wind of the 1970s Starships and Spacemen game license purchased a while back by Goblinoid Games (publishers of the post-apocalyptic Mutant Future and fantasy Labyrinth Lord RPGs).
