Diesel is a new RPG that's coming to Kickstarter at the start of next month. The game takes place in a world where humans can become augmented to run on diesel fuel (gimme fuel, gimme fire, gimme that which I desire). I guess the metaphor, "I feel like I'm running on empty" means something entirely different to them. Also, no, not everyone is named Vin. Check out more about the game and the upcoming campaign the games' website.
About the game:
DIESEL, a new tabletop roleplaying game, is launching on Kickstarter on March 1. DIESEL combines cinematic action with an emotional core to create memorable gameplay experiences.
Inspired by media such as Mad Max and Firefly, DIESEL is set at the edge of reality itself. Here, impossible things can happen--including the creation of Diesels, or humans modified by biotechnology to run on diesel fuel. Players take on the roles of Diesels and use their extraordinary abilities to be complete badasses.
DIESEL uses a d6 pool system to create simple, fun combat. Players are encouraged to push beyond their limits and imagination with the Overclock system--but watch out, because that increases the chance of malfunctions! DIESEL urges players and GMs to go big and bombastic.
