Everyone’s heard horror-stories about the office where everyone seems out to get one-another through corporate backstabbing or sneaky tricks. Well… what if that corporate backstabbing was just actual backstabbing and the “sneaky tricks” were things like dropping your coworker into a pit of hungry crocodiles? Well, then you’d have the world of Murders & Acquisitions, a new RPG that’s up on Kickstarter now.
The game is meant to be a lighthearted and fun look at the corporate world gone to the extreme. Here, “corporate takeover” can involve hired hitmen (a bit more than just being passive-aggressive by not filling the coffee pot). The base game is meant for a real-world office, but there’s expanded rules that bring in things like magic, monsters, future tech, and cosmic horrors. The whole game fits into a single sourcebook, including character creation rules as well as a GM guide.
The campaign’s already really close to funding with still 27 days left to go.
