Space: 1889 is a steampunk-themed RPG in which some of the pop-science that the Victorians believed in turns out to be true. There are other races on the moon and on Mars so, obviously, we’re off to colonise them.
For the next 20 or so days, at the time of posting, there are two separate sales on at the Bundle of Holding for Space: 1889. Why two deals? Two different editions and two different systems.
Space: 1889 Odysseys
The Odysseys sale has the original Space: 1889 game from the 1990s and Game Designers Workshop.
You can discover the details of this collection at the Odysseys page.
