<whoop! whoop! whoop!> Giant robot alert! We have giant robot alert! What's setting it off is The Tears of a Machine SC, a new sci-f, giant mecha, drama-filled RPG that's up on Kickstarter now. While a lot of the action in a giant mecha show takes place on the battlefield, there's usually plenty of drama also going on outside the suits. That's what this game focuses on (and, yeah, the giant mecha combat as well, of course).
From the article:
Greetings cadets, and welcome to The Tears of a Machine SC. Tears of a Machine is a table-top role-playing game of young adult melodrama and giant robot combat. Mecha-drama, as I call it.
In an alternate future, visitors from beyond the stars came to Earth to "save us from ourselves." When we did not agree to upload our minds into their computer network, they decided to take them by force. Now the survivors live under the threat of attack by demonic robots and our best defense are the mecha we've built with their stolen technology. The Saints! Giant androids piloted by young recruits fight back to restore the safety of the world. But borrowed monsters carry dangers of their own.
The campaign is up and running now with 29 days to go.
