Ever wanted to play a game before you backed it on Kickstarter?
Well now with LANDER you can!

LANDER is a competitive, 2-4 player, resource management strategy game, where you assume the role of a corporation, sent to colonise Kaimas-2. Players start out modestly, with 2 crew members, 3 claimed sectors and some equipment allocated from the colony.
Colonisation occurs over a series of rounds (years). Each year, your sectors generate Energy, Food and Titanium.
To increase your resource base, you can Expand into new sectors or Upgrade ones you’ve previously claimed.
With more resources at your disposal, you’re able to acquire new crew members from stasis, add new classes and traits and unlock new leadership abilities.
As you develop your crew with training and items, you will be able to play Action cards which can boost your corporation, sabotage your rivals, or prevent the actions of other corporations.
The objective is to earn the most Mission stars.
To qualify for a mission, you must meet the criteria on the card and pay the required resources to earn the stars. Bonus mission stars can be earned by achieving Accolades, where achieving them (or not) might be the difference you’ll need to best your rivals!
