Paizo released their newest system, Starfinder Roleplaying Game, at Gen Con recently and it sold-out pretty much immediately. This makes it the fastest-selling product in Paizo history.
Within 6 hours of hitting the show floor, every copy of the futuristic sci-fi RPG had been purchased by excited players. Most of the Starfinder product line is now in back-order on paizo.com and it is looking like they won’t be able to restock until the end of October 2017.
Fans are encouraged to check their friendly local game shops to purchase Starfinder as there are still books in distribution, and digital versions remain available on Paizo.com.
“The response to Starfinder has been truly incredible,” says James Sutter, Starfinder’s creative director. “From the fans on social media to distributors, from local game stores to the reviews, the enthusiasm for Starfinder has carried forward past Gen Con, and it’s deeply gratifying to see so many people enjoying it!”
Jess: I had really hoped to pick up a copy to check out as this system not only lets you play in a sci-fi setting with Paizo’s rule set, but you can also build star ships and experience the excitement of taking the helm with your party as you fly through space. Until then, I’ll have to amuse myself with some other Starfinder products.
Ninja Division miniatures, has designed a line of both pre-painted plastic and high-quality unpainted resin minis for Starfinder and there is also a really neat official audio companion for Starfinder put out by Syrinscape. you’ll get cinema-quality sound designed specifically for the game by downloading the Official Starfinder Soundtrack, now available on the Syrinscape Sci-Fi app from Syrinscape.com/starfinder.
“We worked carefully and closely with a bunch of amazing partners to have their licensed products available at Starfinder launch,” says Sutter. “Between Ninja Division with their starship and character miniatures, Syrinscape with their interactive sound packs, and others, players are getting the chance to play an RPG like never before, and we’re thrilled Starfinder is charting the course.”
