MacroVerse Lite Games are rules lite RPGs written in roughly 20 pages. They contain everything you need to play in one short book or .pdf.
Sounds too simple to satisfy your TTRPG craving? I mean, how rich can the game environment be in 20 pages, right?
Our Lite games contain not only the description of the game world, rules for character/NPC generation, and game mechanics, but they have pre-generated games so you can play a quick one-nighter or you can use games Spark Tables to design your own epic stories.
Need more? MacroVerse Lite Games will complement each other and those games will be available as bundles. You won't need to purchase the bundle to play, because of course each game is fully playable on its own, but if you do the complimenting game scenarios will open up the opportunity to break your players into two opposing groups to enjoy the fun. If you're brave enough!

The Tears of the Twins, a comet field of over 20 comets, light up the night sky of Prikas for a month every 4 years. The event is marked by a month-long celebration, with every Nalian taking part in the festivals of life.
For millennia, the Nalian’s have believed it to be an unchanging constant in their lives, worth celebrating. But 3 years ago, their top scientists confirmed that it’s not a constant. In fact, every year, the Tears are a little closer to Prikas when they pass. To their horror, every calculation they run shows that the next time the Tears of the Twins pass through the solar system, the tears will fall on Prikas, washing all life from the planet.
Working right up to the last minute, they build the Perseverance, a Genetic Ark ship that holds the embryos and seeds of every species on the planet. Quickly uploading a hastily programmed, and mostly sane, A.I., and putting 54 crewmembers in stasis, they launch their last, desperate hope to save their civilization!
Can a mentally unstable A.I. and 54 sleeping crewmembers navigate 150 lightyears of unknown space to reach salvation?
