A rich lore has been developed in TextSpaced that filters through every aspect of the game. In conjunction with a main story that takes place over a few millennium there is a lot more to experience. Firstly, each character has their own back story which you can progress through the game as it naturally unfolds. The stories range from a young women bent on revenge against the government to an android that was deemed not worthy of repair. Each story is unique and is a compelling way to understand your characters motives and reasoning.
Additional special stories can be undertaken in special quests or by visiting unique places in the game, such as trying to find out what really happened to Old Earth thousands of years ago or uncovering what happened to the lost children of the Descendants.
As well as story, lore and mechanics can be learnt through charting planets and cataloging wildlife, wonders and points of interest. Books also containing extended lore as well as unique items that can be discovered all help bring life to a universe filled with players and non players alike.
The story in TextSpaced unfolds organically as you progress with your career, allowing you to experience story chapters when they are relevant. Completing story chapters expands the places you can visit, the tools you can use and provides a deeper understanding of the lore of TextSpaced.
When you start the game you will automatically be assigned one of six unique characters all with their own strengths and weaknesses, abilities and traits. A recap of their prologues is detailed below. (Jane and John have been substituted in place of a name you would choose.)
A rich and deep lore has been crafted for TextSpaced which informs every aspect of the game, from the weapon and ship designs to characters and plot points. Even the food and drinks within the game have lore attached to them allowing you to immerse yourself in a new universe. Part of what makes TextSpaced unique, however, is that players and their factions can become part of the lore, leaving their mark on the game history through actions, achievements and the decisions they make.
