Start Your Adventure in Tau Station Now

Today marks the end of Closed Alpha and the birth of Tau Station! Today we celebrate by opening access to everyone, for discovery and exploration of the Tau Station universe.

For those who love to read, love to play, and love science, Tau Station offers a unique narrative experience which evolves with your choices. But be warned, in a post-Catastrophe galaxy where most people are just struggling to survive, there isn’t always a clear way forward or a happy ending to be found.

Hone your perseverance. Humanity still doesn’t know who or what caused the Catastrophe: the horrific near annihilation of  humanity. Or whether it’s going to happen again …

Now that you’ve been warned, enjoy the freedom to become who you want to be in Tau Station! The universe awaits.
