You are: The Mangatas, the most famous family in Spacefleet. Your Mission: to find a habitable planet. Because motherplanet Earth isn't gonna do it for much longer. After 100 years of cryo sleep you woke up in this remote part of the universe. Now you have to be strong as a family and stick together, if you don't want to lose your mind in the vast emptiness of space. Inspired in TV shows like Lost in Space and The Expanse and Nordic Style Larps like Odysseus.


"Extremely well-designed and executed larp. It was easy to dive into the world and feel real connections with the characters and forget that you play on your own computer. I very much recommend this larp to anyone who wants to experience an emotional nordic-style online larp." - Laura Kröger

“A warmly heartbreaking larp about family, space, isolation and loyalty. A nordic Lost in Space with a lovely family you will treasure in your heart.” - Andrea Vaghi (Moonesia)

"The space between us" is a smart design, an exciting and emotional larp, with a diegetic setting that will make you live an intense experience playing the Mangata family, the most epic travelers in space.” - Pepe Roma


We've been fearing it for years. Now, at the dawn of the 23rd century, the day when Earth becomes uninhabitable to humans looms near. Our only recourse is to send exploratory ships far and wide into space to search for a new home... and to hope that we aren't too late.

Humanity's desperate last hope, you are a member of the distinguished Mangata spacefaring family. You have been sent into deep space searching for a new home for your species, now that it has royally screwed up Earth's habitability. You are alone in your solo exploration craft, cut off by vast distances from Earth, your only human contact the video calls between you and the four distant ships that make up the rest of your team. Can you overcome the familial tensions between you? Can you brave the ghosts of your past and complete your mission?


“The Space Between Us” is an online larp that is played via video chat (e.g. ZOOM, Skype). It requires exactly five players and one gamemaster, and lasts about 5 hours including workshops and debrief. There are prewritten characters and secret roles. This larp focuses on the relationships between the members of the family, and how they will affect the characters on their mission. And there will be some space adventure!

You definitely need to add award-winning ;)

Youre right, I should! :)

Due to the covid 19 pandemic On-line larping has become almost a necessity for the world- wide larp community.  

The space between us is one of the most inmersive and well design larping experiences written for an online format in wich you can give your character your own touch in a way that everytime you play it  its gonna be a complete different game.

Full of emotions, creativity and meaningful relationships The space between us is the kind of online larp that you should try to fulfill your larping needs. 

Join the Mangata Family and share your experience, spread the word of the most famous family in Spacefleet!

Thank you so very much!

Always wanted to be part of a dysfunctional family, stranded in the vastness of outer space? Well, do yourselves a favour and try this one, folks! 

The Space Between Us is a tight and well written Sci-Fi experience that has it all, in my humble opinion. Fun, family drama in spades (...and in space!), wild twists and beefy dilemma situations. I thought it was set up in a clever way to keep the story rolling while still leaving enough room for character development! 

Wholesome and well-paced, I loved playing it and would recommend it to anyone! I want more!

Awww, thank you so much! <3
