TTRPG News, New Releases, Crowdfunding
It feels like it’s been a full decade since the last month of gaming news. remember them OGL 1.1? This happened less than three weeks ago! For those of you who don’t note dungeons (teach me your ways) you can check out our explainer here. Otherwise, here are some incredible games as we gear up for Zine Month for a full 28 days Indie RPG Crowdfunding that will surely drive me insane and empty my wallet.
Last release: Apocalypse Frame, Wayfarer’s Deck, A Pinch of Magic, The Fear Bundle
“APOCALYPSE FRAME uses the LUMEN game engine and extends this formula to create a tactical mecha RPG heavily influenced by Armored Core, Xenoblade Chronicles X, Battletech, and XCOM. In a devastated and terraformed world where most of humanity is under the yoke of a brutal regime, the former workers of a once remote factory –now known as the collective—have risen to create a future of freedom from oppression.”
G/O Media may receive a commission

Crowdfunding: The Fifth Season, Lichoma, The Search For Lost Species, Goblins Ate My Baby, Vast Grimm
“The role-playing game of the fifth season is designed for you to recreate adventures and stories set in the world described in NK Jemisin’s Broken Earth trilogy of novels – a world where constant and unstable tectonic and volcanic activity threatens all life; a world whose people have learned to adapt in order to survive. It’s a world where everyone learns that Father Earth hates his children and is always trying to kill them, where metal rusts and even stone crumbles, and the best thing you can do is prepare for the next disaster being. In the world of Broken Earth, community – communication – is everything because in community there is support and a chance to persevere.”
“lichoma is a political dystopian RPG shaped by ecological collapse, social strife, and body-based economics and technology. Character concepts and abilities are based on their cards, but are otherwise free and open to interpretation, and are not rigidly tied to classes or mechanics. This creative aspect is complemented by an intuitive, streamlined system. The core rules fit on a single map and include quick procedures for non-combat challenges and violent conflicts. Additional, optional rules allow groups to add more depth and nuance to suit their preferred playstyle.”
“The Search for Lost Species takes the deductive gameplay off Search for Planet X to a more terrestrial level, delving into remote parts of Indonesia and Papua New Guinea in search of animals many believe are extinct. Renegade has teamed up Re: wilda real organization actively searching for lost species in our world.”

“Big Grim is a standalone, artsy, punk-fueled OSR RPG about the few humans left in a universe being consumed by growing parasitic worms. This is a game of survival, no matter how gruesome things get, humanity must survive.”
