Look, the second image in the campaign is a polar bear wielding abandoned Soviet technology. You know I’m already hooked (I kinda want that art as a tattoo). Mutants in the Next is the new expansion for the Mutants in the Now RPG that’s up on Kickstarter now.
From the campaign:
In the ‘80s and ‘90s, a singular game introduced tens of thousands of gamers to role-playing, not through wizards and warriors, but through radical mutant animal vigilantes. They fought from the fringes to make the world better with wits, wisecracks, and weapons.
But the game passed on with the loss of its license and creator. Though its post-apocalyptic spin-off continued, it faded without its predicted expansions. A complete and original follow-up, set in contemporary times, failed to emerge…
… until 2021.Mutants in the Now was funded on Kickstarter as the retro-modern, mutant-animal, role-playing game that evokes its older ancestors while bringing modern sensibilities to the system and setting. It’s more clear, robust, and inclusive, while still focusing on the mutation and action that made the original so fun.
Ever since the first Kickstarter, backers and fans have been demanding more, and that’s what Mutants in the Next delivers! More animals, more mutations, more baddies, and more variations on existing material. Fans have been demanding expansions, and by pledging, you won’t just help make Next happen, but help a independent game expand into the future.
But new players will also find this a great opportunity, delivering a two-punch package that opens up a kaleidoscope of anthropomorphic possibilities!
The campaign’s up and running now and is set to go for another 30 days.
