Zoetrope RPG Up On Kickstarter

Time is on my side. Yes it is!

Because time travel's possible! But, when one person can do it, others usually can. And that can lead to trouble. In Zoetrope, players take on the role of time cops, looking to maintain the proper timeline from those that would try and alter it (looking at you, Biff).

The sci-fi RPG is up on Kickstarter now.

From the campaign:

Time is actually a lot like a river. If you screw a river up, it ruins the rest of the land by finding a new path. When time gets broken, you need to send in a Zoetrope squad. You need to send us.

A card-based TTRPG made for one shots, Zoetrope puts you in the shoes of a Zoetrope team, working for the Talon government organization. Zoetrope technology lets you time travel back to moments that have been altered in some way, and then it's your team’s job to fix it. Managing action economy and time manipulation with cards, your group must find the best way to fix their problem. But don’t worry if you screw up, you always have another chance.

Zoetrope fully supports serious play if that's your goal, but time shenanigans and roleplay focused games can really push a fun and silly experience if you let them. Give it a try!

The campaign's about 1/4 of the way to its goal with still 29 days to go.
