So it’s the far future. You’re ex-military. You’re also a criminal. The government could put you away forever. Or it could utilize your skills and put you to work in the far reaches of space, dealing with things that no sane person should ever have to deal with. That’s what’s going on in Zombie Squad, the Savage Worlds version of which is up on Kickstarter now.
From the campaign:
The Zombie Squad is a Sci-Fi RPG where you play as Ex Military Criminal Black Op Units, called Penal Squadrons, that are sent out on missions either too dangerous or too dirty for Earth’s Military forces.
You are deniable and expendable and expected to accomplish your mission whatever it takes. With the skills and abilities to operate behind enemy lines or undercover on the many planets available to visit in the game.
If you have ever wanted a game that mixes Star Wars, Aliens and Firefly and throws in a pinch of the Dirty Dozen and Inglorious Basterds then The Zombie Squad is the game you have been waiting for.
The campaign’s doing well, being about 4x funded with still 22 days left to go.
