A year or so back, there was a contest on the Something Awful forums to make a halloween themed game. Paul Matijevic, known as Ettin and creator of Retrocausality, burst onto the contest with his Fate Accelerated (FAE) hack, Breakfast Cult.
A weird mix of cosmic horror, high school, and anime tropes, the title won the contest and a lot of interest on the forums.
Flash forward a few months and Paul has successfully kickstarted the title and is deep in development on a much more robust, in-depth, and standalone version of the title.
Contrasting the elements of a school slice-of-life (at least on the surface) and the terrifying nature of cosmic horror, Breakfast Cult is certainly different from a lot of offerings currently on the market.
I recently had a chance to sit down with Paul Matijevic and discuss the development of his title.
Back in 2014, a new supers trpg hit the market: AMP: Year One. Taking a scifi lens to the superhero genre, AMP offered an interesting modern take on supers. Less about secret bases and costume crime fighting and more about trying to understand themselves and find a place in the world.
AMP: Year Two hit the shelves and established how things were going downhill. As AMPs became well-known, Saps, regular people, began to fight against a perceived threat to survival.
The world seems to only continue to fall into chaos with the new kickstarter from Third Eye Games: AMP: Year Three.
I’ve recently got a chance to sit down with its creator, Eloy Lasanta, and talk about his new kickstarter.
7th Sea is a fondly remembered title from the late 90s. Written by John Wick, the title fell into unfortunate obscurity over the last decade. That is, until, it was recently revived in a highly successful kickstarter.
I recently got a chance to talk to John Wick about the title, his kickstarter, and his fans.
