Starship Troopers: A New Threat

By Mads L. Brynnum

The Arachnids attacked us. It costed us millions of lives, thousands of ships, and years of war, but in the end we were victorious. Because we never gave up. Because we never will.

Now a new enemy threatens humanity. And following their cowardly assault on our moon in the very heartland of The Republic, only one course of action remains: total war. They are smarter, stronger and more technologically advanced than the bugs, but we have the will to win. We shall fight them on the ground, on the seas and oceans, and in space and we cannot lose. We dare not lose. Because in the end it’s them or us.

Starship Troopers: A New Threat is about the interstellar war between humanity and the lizard like “snakes”. The players are a group of elite soldiers from the mobile infantry, and a large part of the game are the actual battles during the counterattack. But it’s also a game about what happens between the death and horror of battles, about the republic, about the necessity of war, and about what they are actually fighting to defend.

The game is primarily based on the movie Starship Troopers by Paul Verhoeven. It is not comedy.
