Just this past weekend, I re-watched one of my favorite movies: Predator 2. I nearly watched Alien, instead. And I still might do so sometime this week. Both, obviously, involve aliens going after humans, with heavy horror/action elements. And aliens, horror, and action is what you get in Aliens and Asteroids, a new sci-fi RPG that’s up on Kickstarter now.
From the campaign:
What is Aliens & Asteroids?
Aliens & Asteroids is a tabletop roleplaying game with a streamlined mechanic, fast character creation, and easy ways to ratchet up the dramatic tension of every encounter. The rules are focused on allowing you to tell exciting stories around alien encounters, abductions, combats, and horrors, inspired by science-fiction films like Aliens and Starship Troopers, computer games like X-COM: UFO Defense, and television shows like Babylon-5 and The Expanse.
Aliens & Asteroids is written to evoke the terror of being on a spaceship in the middle of nowhere being stalked by creatures only wanting to survive and thrive. Maybe you’re a tasty morsel. Maybe you’re a warm body for hosting the next generation of horrors. But it’s definitely going to come down to you or them.
The campaign is up and running now. It’s set to go for another 24 days.
