A restless mind never rests… or something like that. You know what? I’ll work on figuring that one out too, along with these other projects currently on my desk.
High Plains Samurai
Publisher: Broken Ruler Games
Projected Release Date: Public playtest begins February 2017; crowdfunding May 2017; projected final release early- to mid-2018
Anyone who knows me and/or has been following my work will know this project has been a long time coming. It’s also the reason why ScreenPlay exists. HPS is a Wild West/depression era gangster/barbarian/steampunk/post-apocalyptic/wushu story… with mutant powers. Think of this one as ScreenPlay on acid.
The Imposters (“The Light Of Day”)
Publisher: Ginger Goat
System: Original system
Projected Release Date: July 2017
Originally submitted as a Game Chef 2016 entry, this mini-game looked like it was going to sit in limbo as I tried to sort out what to do with it. That is until Ginger Goat’s Josh Jordan put out an open call for mini-games involving government espionage. I’m happy to say The Light Of Day has been accepted into this collection along with other yet-announced games (now running on Kickstarter). Plus it’s been edited by Jeremy Morgan, who has worked on some Fate stuff in the past, so you know they’re taking it seriously. It’s a game of an inside job to swipe top secret data from a government organization and get in the hands of a reporter told through traditional face-to-face interaction describing everyone’s surface actions and secret text messages to detail hidden ploys to get the job done.
