Weird War One Kickstarter Coming Soon!

WWI_announce3The veneer of peace and civility that blankets Europe is about to shatter. When it does, some of those cracks will release things. Things! Beware the madness of men at war, and the desires of those things that feed off such madness!

The Weird War One Kickstarter launches in two weeks. It’s so exciting, even Archduke Ferdinand is looking forward to it. The Kickstarter will run February 16–March 3*, so don’t let it sneak past you while you hunker in the trenches. Be sure you Otto VonBismark your calendars!

*We originally reported a run time of Feb. 9th-25th, and then decided to push our Kickstarter back. There are currently several licensees running Kickstarters—High Space, the Hell on Earth Folio, Olympus, Inc., Against the Axis,  Aaron Allston’s Strike Force—and our friend John Wick launches a Kickstarter for Seventh Sea on the 9th. We want to support all our friends in the industry, so we moved back a week. :)

Olympus Inc. Kickstarter Launched

Olympus Inc KickstarterIn a world that appears identical to our own, the Titans of myth have deposed the upstart Olympians and now rule the heavens. But Zeus and the other gods of Olympus have found a new way to harvest the power of worship—through mankind’s love of money! Step into a world of shadowy politics, satyr cyber-raiders, demigods, and an ongoing clandestine war for control of the firmament.

The Olympus, Inc. Kickstarter from Fabled Environments will bring you into this modern-but-ancient dystopia. You’ll get full details on six of the major Olympians, their corporate “temples” on earth, satyrs and minospawn, and the Nemesis Effect that punishes both sides when the war gets out of hand.

Be sure to check out their Kickstarter page for full details on stretch goals and special limited rewards—some of which this humble reporter has never seen before!
