Licensee Spotlight: Steam Sun Games

Like us, many of our amazing licensees are busy throughout the year crafting exciting new material for Savage Worlds. One such publisher is Steam Sun Games and their upcoming steampunk setting, The City of the Steam Sun coming in 2018:

“The year is 1894. Almost forty years ago, a mathematically and technologically advanced city was erected to become the new Utopia for the rational age, but a catastrophe known as the Eclipse changed everything and the city plummeted into Limbo, the threshold of Hell. Scientific progress faced ancient magic and the city and its people became trapped in a mystical realm that never sees the light of day.

“The familiar world no longer exists. Limbo is governed by other laws and inhabited by strange creatures. Eventually, the people lit their Steam Sun here. Every morning it rises above the city on a huge rail. Authorities conduct diplomatic negotiations with demons, inventors toil to create intelligent automatons, and explorers search for traces of ancient civilizations. All manner of beings can be found in the City of the Steam Sun. Who will you become?”

To find out more about The City of the Steam Sun, download the free, 44-page Introduction from DriveThruRPG now, follow Steam Sun Games on Facebook, and keep your eyes out for the full release in 2018. This 300+ page book will include new Arcane Backgrounds, new Edges and Hindrances, new rules for inventions, and three ready-to-play adventures.

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.
