The Mandate is a single-player RPG that supports up to six players for co-op gameplay. It’s designed to be enjoyed alone, or with rich rewards for those who choose to tactically band together.

The biggest mistake storytellers can make in gaming is to believe they are writing the future. In The Mandate, the future is up to you, the gamer.

The world of The Mandate is not spontaneous. Much research has been done in order to build a believable past. 1500 years of history based on Tsarist Russian lore and history has been written for the game.  

At its core, The Mandate is a fantastical space RPG about betrayal, scavenging, exploration, combat and honor.

I've been with JA in one capacity or other since 2003. I'm currently website administrator. I'm also a digital artist (my avatar is one of my creations). I write reviews and articles, create graphics and basically help tend the site. It's work I enjoy very much. I love playing games of all kinds, but adventure and RPGs are my favorites (particularly scary/dark/unsettling ones). At the top of my list are The Cat Lady, The Longest Journey, Dreamfall, Still Life (first one only), Scratches and Culpa Innata. I'm a dyed-in-the-wool recluse and prefer the company of animals, hardware and ghosts to human beings (no offense). And no bio would be complete without my saying that I do NOT care for phones of ANY sort. Further, I think Dell computers are garbage and that Microsoft has become megalomaniacal.
