Catalyst Game Labs announced a new science fiction RPG under development, Cosmic Patrol. The game will be based on an original Golden Age-style setting—like Flash Gordon and Buck Rogers—with players acting as Patrolmen, defending humanity in a dangerous galaxy. Cosmic Patrol will not, however, be like the company’s other large, detail-heavy, science fiction RPGs. Catalyst describes it as:

Taking a cue from the wonderful stream of Indy games over the last few years: digest size and a lower price-point, very light on rules so it can be heavy of flavor and improv-style play.
