I'm trying to remember the name of an old indie/DIY tabletop role-playing game I used to play when I was a kid. I can't for the life of me remember its name or core mechanics.
It was printed DIY style and I picked it up from a GenCon in the late 80s or early 90s when I was a kid.
It's a sci-fi game and most of the artwork was reminiscent of Space Marines. I don't think it was ever actually published, though.
Anyone know what it might be? We played the heck out of it in middle school.

A senior academic at the University College London was holding eugenics conferences, allegedly in secret, since at least 2015. Colonial conservation practices continue to displace indigenous peoples from their land in order to establish protected areas or game reserves.”

I got Kind Words and have been playing it for two hours straight. It's a very cute little game that lets you send and reply to messages anonymously, with a focus on trying to ask for help/advice/kind words (haha) and sending them in return.
It's also very cute and has a chill soundtrack.

important crustacean news! Ghost crabs use teeth in their stomach to growl at their enemies
"X-ray fluoroscopy videos revealed that the rasping sounds coincided with the movements of the teeth in their foreguts, known as gastric mills"
the article also notes other mechanisms ghost crabs use to signal each other–maybe the kind of nuanced sociality needed living close by each other in burrows
