During Gamescom Opening Night Live 2022, Unknown Worlds’s upcoming title Moonbraker was announced. Penned by the famed author of epic fantasy and sci-fi tales, Brandon Sanderson is collaborating with the studio that brought us Subnautica and Natural Selection 2.
Unknown Worlds surprised us all with a reveal of an experience unlike anything they have previously tackled before – a turn-based, tabletop miniatures game called Moonbreaker. Notable inspirations have been noted to be Hearthstone, XCOM, Firefly and Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy.

Moonbreaker is described as: Moonbreaker is a turn-based strategy, tabletop tactics game developed by Unknown Worlds, the team behind the Subnautica series. It is designed to be a true digital miniatures experience, set in an expansive sci-fi universe crafted by best-selling sci-fi and fantasy author, Brandon Sanderson.
