Humor and pop culture references venture into outer space with Roger & Out, the free browser game developed by Travian Games. Players take on the role of an interstellar mercenary who undergoes missions throughout the galaxy. These missions are done on behalf of one of two factions: the Empire or the Rebels. If these factions sound familiar, it is intentionally so as this game parodies many sci-fi films and television shows.
Players start the game by being awoken from stasis by two robots, Roger and Out, who then proceed to walk you through the tutorial. Gameplay is casual and easy to get into. Every character in Roger & Out has stats that affect their combat prowess. As a character gains levels, they can increase those stats. Players can also raise stats through the use of equipment, which ranges from clothing to weapons to various implants.
Players in Roger & Out advance by going on missions. To do missions, players go to the galaxy map and select a sector of space, which will then show a number of planets. Each planet has a mission from one of the factions that the player can undertake. Once players select a mission, there is a short wait before the fight occurs. This wait can be waived if the player spends chromium, the game's cash shop currency. The mission's fight is an automatic one between the player and an enemy. If victorious, the player receives xp and gold coins. These gold coins can be spent in the Replicatrix, an online shop that refreshes daily. Players can force a refresh by spending chromium. In addition to normal missions, there are ongoing, daily, and weekly goals that the player can undertake to earn additional xp and other rewards, such as gold coins. If you find yourself wanting to take a break from missions, you can engage in some PvP by challenging other players to a duel.
As players level in this browser mmo, more sectors of the galaxy map will become available for exploration and adventure. Players can join guilds in Roger and Out and crew their own guild starship. Guilds have levels, and the higher the guild level, the more crew spaces will become available on the ship and more guild missions will unlock that players can play cooperatively.
Roger & Out has a tongue-in-cheek approach as the game is rife with humor. From the many whimsical enemies to the ribald mission text, you'll find yourself smiling as you play the game. The game lampoons many sci-fi characters and settings from your favorite movies and tv shows and are depicted with light-hearted, cartoony graphics. Perhaps you'll see your favorite intergalactic smuggler or logical ship's officer somewhere in the galaxy.
