We’ve all seen countless fantasy settings. Most of them are rather Tolkien-esque in their approach. Well, Renegade Game Studios is looking to do something a little different. They’ve announced Overlight, a new universe that will be the bases for various new games. The first will be an RPG set in this all-new setting.
From the announcement:
Renegade Game Studios is excited to announce the creation of a novel fantasy setting, Overlight. The first product announced within this world is a role-playing game designed by Paul Alexander Butler and George Holland, expected for release in 2018.
Overlight is a fantasy roleplaying game of kaleidoscopic journeys: a visceral, dangerous, and brightly-colored setting. Characters will search for personal meaning among a fantastic, sometimes violent, and overwhelming world.
“We want to return a sense of wonder to fantasy roleplaying. Elves and Dwarves and Orcs are great, but we’ve seen them done countless times, and we want to take players someplace they haven’t been before,” explains Paul Alexander Butler, co-creator of Overlight.
“I’m so excited to be working with Paul and George to bring their unique world to life. The Roleplaying game is a great way to introduce everyone to the Overlight and the world is so rich that we decided not to stop there. We have a lot of plans for the World of Overlight and I can’t wait to tell you all more about it,” says Scott Gaeta, President of Renegade Game Studios.
Overlight will be launching in 2018. Don’t be in the dark.
