This is a grand narrative game with multiple possibilities. Throughout the game, players will co-operatively work together to ensure the ship is maintained and orderly BUT. Players have their own secret motives, which will reward them if they choose to be less altruistic and more...greedy. But being greedy can also be bad? The choices players make as they play will alter the direction of the story.
It is important to note that the game is ultimately not won or lost until the story’s conclusion. Each episode defines goals for the players to achieve to advance, and will eventually define the conditions for determining victory. The story’s conclusion, however, and whether victory is achieved will be determined by the players’ actions, and NOT by a measurement of total accrued officer stars from the episodes. Gen7 is also a campaign game, constantly challenging its players with a variety of unique situations that force them to make difficult moral decisions. Will you compromise your integrity to ensure the safety of your crew? Will you value their lives over the safety of the mission?
