Space 1889 is the second game based on Game Workshop's p&p RPG. In an alternate history (similar to Origin's Martian Dreams) where Thomas Edison invented time travel, you set out in an alternate 19-century world to find King Tut's treasures, but are soon caught up in a grand quest that leads you to Atlantis, Mars and beyond. Numerous optional mini-quests and emphasis on exploration and puzzles over combat make this a great game for both RPG and adventure gamers. The well-written dialogues (especially with Rasputin and Jules Verne) are a plus. Two thumbs up, way up!
