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.

Tau Station has been in Closed Alpha since the beginning of January and we’ve been getting fantastic support from the first Community members who have joined the test. We’re very happy about all of the feedback and suggestions. Around 100 of all participants did the first feedback survey so far, and we’re happy to see an average rating of 7.4 even with the game still in its Alpha state. On top to that, the gaming activity and login frequency are awesome; some of you have already reached level 10+! It seems we have delivered something that you’ve been enjoying. In order to keep delivering it, we need your help!
