Many of us have seen those old films from the 70s and 80s that show how role-playing games are a tool of Satan, looking to corrupt the youth and bring them into his hell-raising armies. Satanic Panic, a new RPG up on Kickstarter, brings us back to those heady times. The only twist is that all the hype is real. Take on the role of government agents looking to undo the dangers that are RPGs and save the youth from eternal damnation.
From the campaign:
People whisper in hushed tones about a corruption taking hold in the world. A secret wildfire spreading from basement to basement called tabletop. Some say it is evil, some say it is turning their kids into monsters, and some say it is summoning demons.
…and every whisper rings true.
Tabletop is bringing evil into the world and turning people into monsters and you are one of the few that stand against this evil. You can stop tabletop.
Satanic Panic is a tabletop roleplaying game set in the fictional 1970’s and 1980’s where players take on the role of secret government agents tasked with combating the evils of tabletop. The players work as a team with the common purpose to contain, control, and eliminate the threats to our world. They must do all this while keeping the truth from the public, lest a panic ensue.
The game will be a 200-page hardcover book with everything needed for a GM and 2-6 players. It is designed so that the game can be played as a traditional RPG campaign or can be played in an episodic fashion with different numbers and arrangements of players. Satanic Panic brings modern game design principles to traditional tabletop game play. It gives the players all the power they need to fight against the forces of evil while making their every decision have long term consequences.
Join us in the fight against evil, join us in the fight against tabletop.
The Kickstarter campaign is already over its funding goal. So it’s on to stretch goals for the next 29 days.
