Happy Holidays from Pinnacle!

2017 was an exciting year for Pinnacle with three successful Savage Worlds Kickstarters including The Goon™ RPG, Fear Agent™ RPG, and, of course, The Savage World of Flash Gordon™. We also took our first triumphant foray into the card/board game Kickstarter market with Doomtown Reloaded (with the help of our good friends at Pine Box Entertainment).

As for Flash Gordon™, we’ll have preorders open soon for those who missed out on the Kickstarter, but right now, we’re working to get the first PDFs into the hands of our generous backers.

We also want to take a moment to thank all those awesome streamers out there who really embraced Savage Worlds on their Twitch channels in 2017 including the regular Friday night forays into the Weird West with the WildCards gang on Saving Throw, and the Happy Jack’s RPG Podcast group who have been playing Rifts® for Savage Worlds as well as Pirates of the Spanish Main.

So what do we have planned for 2018? Well, the Savage Worlds machine is currently chugging away behind the scenes (that means all of us banging on our keyboards) in hopes of bringing you the next version of Savage Worlds (codenamed “Savage Worlds Black”), followed by updated versions of both the Fantasy and Horror Companions, as well as updates and re-releases of the Deadlands Player’s Guide and Marshal’s Handbook. Note that no dates are set in stone yet, so watch this space for all the deets!

From all of us here at Pinnacle Entertainment, Happy Holidays and may all your Wild Dice Ace in the New Year!

Our Flash Gordon™ Kickstarter Has Saved the Universe!

Last night, all eyes were on Mongo as the Kickstarter for The Savage World of Flash Gordon™ rocketed into history! With 1,027 individual backers, our initial $15,000 goal (which was met in the first hour of the campaign) was crushed by the final total of nearly $110,000! All of our Stretch Goals were met (from form fillable character sheets to miniatures to propaganda prints for your secret rebel hideout) and we really appreciate all your generous support and enthusiasm!

We also want to thank the many blogs, podcasts, and pop culture news sites that helped promote the Kickstarter. Here are just a handful of links in case you want to watch, read, or listen to some of this amazing coverage:

Right now, we’re going to settle in for a bit and finish off the editing and development. Kickstarter will begin processing payments and deliver funds in about two to three weeks and then we can export the data and start delivering the various PDFs to backers. Some will come right away, others will take a little longer as we work through any issues that crop up.

We’ll then send everything to the printer as soon as it’s ready and then if all goes according to plan (assuming Ming and his minions don’t interfere with the process) everything will come back in about four months and we’ll start shipping. And while you wait, be sure to adorn your various electronic devices with our FREE Flash Gordon wallpapers (featuring FLASH-tastic art by Aaron Riley) now available over at DriveThruRPG.
