It has moved from Coming Releases because it is scheduled for release this month:

Along with 2300 AD, I'm really looking forward to this one. I hope it comes out before Halloween.
Later,

Ok, this is really bugging me. I just read the S&P 85 article on Wardens, which was very cool. Only problem is that I swear I just recently read something (almost certainly RPG related, but I could be misremembering very badly) that had a very very similar concept/plot, where something was making weird alien habitats form in previously "dead" places and similarly weird events.

Did I just read a different preview of Cthonian Stars and didn't realize what I was reading, or is there a very similar game out there?

There was another talking about Wardens in a previous issue of S&P.

Must have been, though I'm definitely remembering more specific comments about the changing ecosystems of planets or planetoids thought dead and new "alien ecologies" springing up. Is that Cthonian Stars? Sounds like it...

Could be one of the S&P previews.

Found it.

http://chthonianstars.com/page1/page1.html

This was what I read, though I didn't read it from this website. Seems to me that Mongoose had this whole blurb up somewhere on their site, but have edited it down at some point.

Anyway, mystery solved.

I'm definitely interested.

I was annoyed that the Warden preview in 85 is the same as 84, but yeah, I'm also looking forward to the game. :)
