Modiphius is just on a roll with releases and announcements lately. They’ve got all their Fallout stuff going on, but they’ve also got a new RPG they’re releasing (along with various ancillaries). It’s Tales from the Loop and it takes players back to a 1980s that’s a bit different than we remember (those of you old enough to remember the 80s, that is).
From the announcement:
Today we’re really pleased to announce the release a raft of products from Tales from the Loop, a brand new roleplaying game from Free League Publishing which allows you explore roleplaying in a 1980s that never was.
The Verge said “RPG Tales from the Loop lets you channel Stranger Things and ET”, while Geek & Sundry thinks it, “Could very well be the RPG phenomenon of 2017”.
Inspired by sci-fi artist Simon Stålenhag’s paintings of a Swedish 1980s suburbia populated by fantastic machines and strange beasts, Tales from the Loop casts you in the role of teenagers solving mysteries connected to the enigmatic Loop. The game rules are based on Free League Publishing’s award-winning Mutant: Year Zero, which won with a Silver ENnie for Best Rules at Gencon 2015
