Well, I tell you what, it's not a conventional sort of name for a game. Gadzooks It's the Apocalypse is a new miniatures game where players will be in control of a central figure and their group of henchmen. It's the first half of the Seventeenth Century and everyone is sure that the world is ending (who said that's a new thing?). But, for them, it might actually happen. The game is up on Kickstarter now.
From the campaign:
Gadzooks it’s the Apocalypse is a fantasy battle game set in the first half of the seventeenth century, a time of widespread warfare, religious strife and general unrest. It was a time when very bad things were happening and when people saw signs of the end of days and the coming of the Apocalypse. So we thought - that sounds like fun times lets make a game!
Each player in the game will control one character figure and a bunch of dubious looking henchmen. The character will have a detailed profile, a number of skills and qualities that can be improved upon if scenarios are survived and experience is gained. Henchmen are cheap and expendable and there are always plenty more to hire. But players should beware, evil forces are at work at every turn and as their characters grow in power, the temptation to follow the path of evil will be strong. Will characters risk their humanity by gaining sinister new powers or will they take the path of good. All will have to decide as the end time approaches.
The campaign's about 1/5 of the way to its goal with still 28 days to go.
