This blogpost was so nearly called I MADE A GAME WITH AN AWESOME CO-CREATOR! It may yet be part of a series called that. Because I did.
Want to play it? After The War is a game of memetic science fiction horror. It’s Bravestarr in a minor key, Starfleet’s day after their worst day ever. I am ridiculously proud of it and incredibly honored to be working with the people I’m working on it with. Here’s Jason Pitre, my co-creator, with the details.
After the War – Playtest Invitation
After the War is science-fiction horror roleplaying game, set on the frontier world of Polvo in the aftermath of a galactic conflict. This is a game about people who lost their homes and their families in the war and have come together to rebuild their lives on this rough, frontier world. It’s about diverse communities of Terrans, Martians, Belters, and Aliens, who come together to build a new home for themselves. When the seductive Song or brutal Tormenta threaten your settlements, it’s your job to protect your new world.
Your story is centered on the settlement that you now call home. You work to build, strengthen, and grow their fledgling home. You deal with internal disagreements and external threats, because this is the only place you have left.
Coming to Kickstarter in Fall of 2018
