Extreme Earth: Kickstarter for a Dystopic Super-Future

Extreme Earth KickstarterFainting Goat Games, one of our newest Savage Worlds Licensees, is Kickstarting Extreme Earth, a supers campaign set in the Iron Age of comics.

Take the world we know and strip away many of the natural resources. As if to make up for this loss, some people suddenly develop super talents and powers. The lines between governments, corporations, and media are so blurred that everyone is out for themselves. Add a layer of paranoia and corruption that affects all levels of society, creating conflicts that consume those quickly-dwindling resources—resources like those people with newly-developed powers. It’s a dark dystopia far too easily imagined.

Check out the Extreme Earth Kickstarter for the full details and the various rewards levels.
