Description Edit | History

Science Fiction or sci-fi, deals with imaginative concepts such as parallel universes and explores the potential consequences of scientific or other innovations. Science Fiction stories generally have a grounding in science-based fact or theory at the time the story was created. This theme can feature any subject matter, but space and time travel are among the most commonly used.

Sub-themes
Video Game Theme: Science / Technology
Hard Science Fiction Characterized by concern for scientific accuracy and logic. Example:
Video Game Theme: Folklore
Soft Science Fiction / Science Fantasy Characterized by a lack of concern for scientific accuracy or plausibility. Artistic license is heavily applied. Example:
Video Game Theme: Aliens
Supernatural Fiction Features events that violate naturalist assumptions of the real world, but without "horror" or "fantasy" elements. Example:
Video Game Genre: Tactical RPG
Psychological Fiction Emphasizes interior characterization and motivation to explore the emotional and mental state of people. Example:
Video Game Theme: Anime
Utopian Fiction Sets out a vision of an ideal society with nearly perfect qualities for its citizens. Oftentimes the inherently contradictory nature of the Utopia and the desires of its people conflict, and therefore cannot simultaneously be satisfied. Example:
Video Game Genre: 4x Strategy
Dystopian Fiction Sets out an unsavory vision of society. Mass poverty, public mistrust and suspicion, a police state or oppression are often featured. At least one reason why things are that way is explored, often as an analogy for similar issues in the real world. Example:
Video Game Theme: Agriculture
Climate Fiction Deals with climate change and the effects of global warming in the past, present, or future. Example:
Video Game Theme: Space
Space Opera Emphasizes space warfare, melodramatic adventure, interplanetary battles, chivalric romance, and risk-taking. Set mainly or entirely in outer space, it usually involves conflict between opponents possessing advanced abilities, futuristic weapons, and other sophisticated technology. Example:
Video Game Theme: War - Modern
Military Fiction Features past, current, or future conflicts with weapons and organizations that are real or imagined. Example:
Video Game Theme: Furries / Talking Animals
Anthropological Fiction Attempts to provide answers to the question of "What is man?". Deals with the similarities and differences between man, animal, or machine and may present data and ideas that are bizarre or unusual. Example:
Character Category: Player Character
Feminist Fiction Focused on theories that include gender inequality, sexuality, race, economics, and reproduction. Sometimes combined with utopias or dystopias to explore gender or power imbalances in society. Example:
Character: Vampire (Generic)
Christian Fiction Contains strong Christian themes or taken from a Christian point of view. Christian beliefs are often expressed by way of analogy or may be more explicit. Example:

Admin Note:

While this is a valid option, we recommend trying to find another suitable theme if possible:

  • Science Fiction is one of our broadest themes, making it an easy theme to overuse.
